Why You Should Consider Joining Traveling Vineyard

“It is hard to know if you like a wine unless you try it first.” This was the single idea back in 2001 that led to the creation of a new business.

After nine years however, Traveling Vineyard declared bankruptcy and things looked bleak until it was purchased by Rick Libby who took a gamble with his money to see if his investment could pay off during the Great Recession. Suffice to say that seven years later Libby’s decision paid off and will continue to pay itself off in the years to come.

Traveling Vineyard works by having its newly acquired employees assigned to a leader in their local area who will go about putting the new recruits through training and remain around to as a source of help regardless if the new recruit later forms their own team. In addition to this, once you are a member you will have access to the Tasting Room, Traveling Vineyard’s very own online training center that will give modules for every possible thing you’ll need for your new job as a wine guide. Furthermore, there’s more learning to be had during the annual Harvest conference that also comes with some training sessions as well. All in all, new recruits will have enough support and learning tools to help them become successful wine guides.

The benefits for working for Traveling Vineyard are: Setting your own work schedules, spend your work time tasting and discussing wine, developing bonds with clients and coworkers, and making a good profit from doing all of it.

Fabletics Finding Ways to Compete with Amazon

You may have noticed Kate Hudson is not appearing in as many movies in recent years. That is because she has found a new endeavor to take up her time, Fabletics, the activewear company she helped found in 2013. The innovative company has made waves in the e-commerce fashion world since its inception by being one of the few companies to take a dent out of Amazon’s portion of the market share.

 

Quality Products at a Great Price

 

Part of Fabletics success is because it supplies a great product at a great price. The leggings are very affordable and people love them, meaning they are telling their friends to buy them and join in the innovative purchasing process. This quality is apparent in the other products offered as well.

 

Subscription Based Buying

 

Subscription-based companies are nothing new, but it is a new practice in the fashion world. Taking a page out of the book of companies in the cuisine and entertainment world, Fabletics decided to offer its clothing via subscription, and it has paid off in a big way. The company has seen 35% annual growth since its founding. A subscription ensures that the customer will return for their next purchase if they liked the product because of the convenience.

 

They Do Retail Too

 

The company has been successful enough online to make the plunge into selling in physical stores. Some would say that this is a risk. It probably is a risk for a company that isn’t as innovative and forward-thinking as Fabletics.

 

The retail stores are completely integrated with the online subscription process, making it simple for members to come in and check out products before they buy them online. It even gives them the ability to place them in their cart and purchase them on the computer when they get home.

 

Integrating the retail stores completely with the online shopping portion of the business has been a source of success. In fact, more stores are opening up across the country soon. This is much different than the current trend of closing retail stores and focusing on e-commerce sales.

 

Fabletics Uses Data In Unique Ways

 

Fabletics has also found an innovative way to utilize online data. Most companies do so, but Hudson and her team do it in a more localized manner. Consumer data in the region around the store guides what is put on the shelves. This eliminates products sitting and taking up space while not selling, a huge problem for retail fashion companies. It also helps attract new customers. It stands to reason that, if current members in an area like something, prospective members will like the produts. A huge source of success has been the company’s ability to ulitize data in a fresh and efficient way on a store by store basis.

 

The elements that make up the success of Fabletics are simple, offer up a quality product in an innovative way. It seems simple enough, but it is easier said than done. Fabletics has done it so well that they are getting their fair share of the e-commerce fashion market from Amazon.
