I have a start-up in India. I am a fashion designer and i want to understand the effective marketing tools that inflate our sales. We make clothes for woman. We have a website: www.ochresky, an Instagram and a Facebook page by the same name which gave us great response in the first year but decreased subsequently. This is our 4th year in this industry . Any leads or pointers that generate sales in the fashion industry? We would love to go global.
We used to give our stocks to the big local stores in Delhi, India but its a manipulative industry out here. They usually out our labels and put theirs and sell which abstrain from the consumer to know who we are . That will never make us big so we sell in exhibitions and try to reach the consumer ourselves. We don't have a physical store. We work only through exhibitions and our website.I know that our product has the capacity to make it very big. We work with the artisans and create organic cottons and work on it in-house. Our strength is simplicity and price points. The consumer buys our product when they touch and feel it and see the impeccable finish in exhibitions but we can only reach out to a few; being so small. Please feel free to ask questions. I have dedicated this life to crack this and make it big. Thanks.

Hi everyone, I am new to this app but would like to give it a shot as I am always excited to try new platforms:
In the new start up I'm working for, I have to build an online community for a sharing economy business. I am looking for some inspiration or best practice sharing - perhaps friends from Pepo would have suggestions? Also, are there tools for that?Thx! :)

Love this Kas Schnitzel -- perfect explanation! One of our long term goals with Pepo is to empower the community to really own and direct the platform.

Interesting Jason Goldberg! What suggestions do you (and anyone else) have for building an active community for a platform?
Also, are there any tools / models anyone has used that helped build a community?

Not being rude, your website is hideous on mobile. Please get it done by a professional (like me). Also your products page is tough to reach.
Aabhaas Gupta 9 months ago
Yeah, thank you Mr Vishal, for taking the time. Actually it was my first draft and, I kinda had to get a review from some one. I'll upload the latest one soon, which is completely different and bug free. And sorry for the mobile thing I'll fix it too. Please feel free to give me any more suggestions if you have without worrying about being rude. Thank you.

Thanks for the advise but my business is an E-Commerce business and the commission is well known to my service provider, so he will build his network then communicate to the clients to directly contact him for a cheaper price. What do you think?

First step tell to Julie whole the situation and how you feel. Second step agree with her for long term win win cooperation. Third step promise lower market price to this customer and let him sign exclusive agreement. Hope above help you and your pal.

Appreciate to help me understand how to avoid this case to happen
Michael Flores Martin 10 months ago
Find out how this information got to your client and avoid a similar situation arising again. Do not train her yourself and cut out your partner the relationship with your partner is more important than losing a 25% commission. Tel the client you may not cut out your partner and if you feel you will lose the client in any case just wave your commission and let your partner keep the client for good relations if possible.
Ahmed Accoush 10 months ago
One of my personal training customers has been working with Julie for a few months and is very happy with the results. Julie is one of my contractors and also has her own clients. When Julie works with a customer, I take 25 percent of the fee and pay 75 percent to Julie. Recently the customer approached me and said, β€˜Amy, I’m very happy working with Julie, and want to continue doing so, but I realize that I’m paying an extra cost because she is affiliated with your firm. Can I train with Julie independently and pay less?’

What should I do? I don’t want to lose my customer.
Shekhar Gupta 10 months ago
U need to keep the customer's Goodwill. The only thing which can be done in this situation is that Julie tells the customer that she cannot accept u are a valuable business to Julie and make her understand that she needs to take this stand as this will be beneficial for both in the long term... If she can take this stand, it would be make your partnership more trustful. She needs to understand this.

I use:

Citrix Podio for project management, internal and external collaboration, messaging, document sharing, collecting info on web forms. Replaces Trello and Slack and does a whole lot more including automated business workflows.

ActiveCampaign for CRM, email marketing and marketing automation. Replaces the need for separate crm and email marketing e.g. hubspot and mailchimp.

Webflow for web design and development. Check this out if you're a more involved web designer or web agency.

Zendesk for live chat and customer support (including social support), and support documentation (e.g. faqs). Chose this over using and Help Scout.

Zapier for automatically sending new data between applications and performing automated tasks simultaneously. Look at PieSync if you want to synchronise data between applications (including historic which Zapier doesn't do).

There are good online collaboration tools - ideaboardz is free and Trello you can earn free membership months when people join on your request. These tools are very helpful to track requirements, to do list, brainstorming sessions. Building transparency is good

Honestly- the content is so on focus - as long as it's all indexed do you need an expert?
Paul Renshaw 11 months ago
The need is for someone to consider how the content could be presented and technically configured so that it is more effectively indexed.

For example there are methods for suggesting to google specific categorisation of content and relevance to people's interests and search habits that its indexing may not necessarily consider without specific structure and definitions in the code as well as submission to certain google tools.
Jason Goldberg 11 months ago
Exactly. Thanks Paul Renshaw
