European Cosmetics Brand, BeYu, Taps Planit to Support U.S. Launch

8/29/17

Planit, a Baltimore-based communications, marketing, and digital agency, is pleased to announce a new partnership with BeYu Cosmetics, a European-based premium beauty brand renowned for its high-quality, affordable products. With a presence in 40 countries, BeYu is distributed in the U.S. by BAM Brands USA. Planit will support BAM Brands USA in driving awareness, trial and sales of BeYu in the U.S. through brick and mortar retail and e-commerce campaigns, as well as paid and organic social media campaigns.

“We are really excited to be working with Planit. We interviewed a lot of New York based agencies, and we felt Planit had the right combination of experience, passion and creativity,” said Christian Dean, CEO of BAM Brands USA. “We are confident Planit is the right partner to help BeYu bringEuropean luxury, exceptional color palettes and quality cosmetics to U.S. consumers."

Planit’s marketing efforts will focus on driving BeYu sales of soft eye liners, color lip biggies, color biggies for eyes, mascara and eyeshadow quads in major retailers including Wegmans, Bartell Drug, Target.com, Amazon.com and CVS.com. The agency will be responsible for strategic planning, creative development, media planning and buying, and social media strategy and execution for U.S. platforms.

“BeYu's products are amazing, but what really attracted us to this opportunity is the brand's unique business model. By offering prestige cosmetics in mass retail, BeYu gives B&M retailers the ability to offer a unique shopping experience to their customers, and gives women the ability to purchase trusted European cosmetics without having to make a special trip to the mall. It's really smart, and it's something that no other brand is doing,” said Sarah Quackenbush, group account director at Planit.

Planit’s partnership with BeYu is the most recent addition to the agency’s ongoing growth in the beauty and skincare category with major brands such as Kleenex® Facial Cleansing, Dr. Brandt and Mally Beauty.
