Fashion Fast-Track: A Shortcut from Samples to Sales
You’re starting out as the owner of a new fashion brand and you’re passionate about your business. The creativity and ideas just keep flowing…
So what comes next? Going from ideas and samples to actual sales.
- What do you do once you’ve already sold to family and friends and the sales are dipping?
- How much does social media matter and what should you be sharing?
- Do you have the pricing and positioning for consistent income and growth?
- Are you using your resources (time, energy, money) in the most productive way?
As a newcomer to fashion, the mystery surrounding what it takes to succeed leads to frustration and doubt. But you don’t have to do it alone. Our team of industry pros will help you get the job done – and with a lot less effort.
Our six-month Fast-Track from Samples to Sales program will show you how to build a customer base and a brand identity that sells. It includes all the systems and tools you need to grow rapidly, become profitable and lay the groundwork for growth – plus access to trusted, vetted resources like manufacturers, attorneys and accountants. You’ll learn the business and feel like a confident and capable CEO.
Scaling Sales: Growth Stage Strategies for Fashion Businesses
Once you make it past the startup stage, you need a vision, business plan, network and strategy to take you to the next level.
Most people fail at scaling. Why? They simply try to do more of what they’ve already been doing. What got you here can’t get you to the next level — the right strategy will.
Once you have consistent sales, a strong presence in the market, and basic systems and processes in place, we’ll help you grow your marketing, production and internal infrastructure to both create and meet the demand necessary for growth.
Many fashion consultants have experience designing and launching lines; our experience lies in helping those businesses grow each year. We’ve taken businesses from $250k to $1.5M in sales and from $50M to $100M. Some of our most recent growth stage clients include SUGARHIGH LOVESTONED and Rhode Resort.
We’ll give you clarity and a roadmap to make the complicated decisions that come with growing your business. You’ll gain more time for working ON your business, and not just in it.
