Ecommerce Fashion Brand: Adding More Items Through Collaboration

*Collaborative post.

As a fashion brand that is trying to break out and compete with the big dogs, you will always be on the hunt for more items to put on sale on your website. Many brands are collaborating together because it’s simply too expensive to go it completely alone these days. Small business owners and entrepreneurs are also doing this but in a slightly different way. They are selling their own fashion line but they are also ‘mixing and matching’ all sorts of items that would go well with their line. Essentially, this allows brands and customers to make and buy all sorts of outfits from one ecommerce website. The road to increasing your items list isn’t as long as you would think it is.

 

Bare-faced honesty and collaboration

Before you try different angles, just consider emailing a fashion brand that you want to work with. It’s very common for brands that specialize in winter to work together. Hugo Boss photograph models wearing their long woolen overcoats, who are also wearing leather gloves made by a specialist company called Dents. At the bottom of every item page, there are clickable links to all the other items the model is wearing. Coming from this sort of angle, it makes sense to just email the brands you like, present this idea of collaboration and see how far you can get.

Going for a meeting

If all goes well with your email or phone conversation, you will be called in to pitch to the sales assistant and his or her team. They are in charge of ‘new partnerships’ which is basically, finding all kinds of brands, entrepreneurs, modeling agencies, and suppliers to work with. To shock and wow them during your pitch, you need to go hell for leather in your presentation.

It should consist of all the relevant figures. What kind of visitor numbers do you achieve on your ecommerce website? What kind of follower numbers and interaction do you get on social media? What are your sales figures? What is the best thing that people like about your range? Coupled with all this kind of information needs to be a digital visual conjuring of what it would be like to see people walking down the street wearing both of your brands. You can do real-world modeling photos to illustrate this but hiring a professional photoshop image editor would be better.

Handling the traffic

The brands you’re working with will want to know if you can handle the sales that might come from collaborating with you. They will be a little hesitant if you don’t have the bandwidth and space for your ecommerce website to extract as many sales as possible if you were to be chosen. With a cheap vps package like the VPS Ultra, you can more than handle your own turf. With 200GB in SSD space, 32GB of RAM, and automated backups, you can bench press any amount of traffic and remain reliable during rush hour.

As we all seek to climb out of this pandemic-led recession, working with different brands is going to become the norm. This is how you can get your foot in the door first.

Top 6 Cheap Smartphone Upgrades

*Collaborative post.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with technology these days, particularly with smartphones. The technology in our phones is amazing, and it has completely revolutionized how we live our lives. We are more connected than ever and have constant access to information. 

However, with such rapid advancements in such technology, the prices of phones have skyrocketed. It’s quite common for your brand new £1,000 phone to become old news within a few months.

Luckily, if you’re not a tech junkie or obsessed with having the latest and greatest smartphone, there are plenty of accessories and apps out there that can take your current phone to the next level. What’s more, many of these upgrades are either cheap or completely free.

A battery case

Unfortunately, one of the most common issues that smartphones face is battery life. Depending on charging habits and overall use, the extent of this problem can vary. 

However, there is a practical and cool solution to this – a battery case. This smartphone case comes with a built-in battery, giving you extra juice if you run out of charge. 

If your budget allows it, you can opt for a wireless charger, but the wired cheaper versions can be just as good.

Translating app

Travelling to non-English speaking countries will never be the same once you download a translating app, like Google Translate. These apps use your camera to translate language in real-time.

Clip-on camera lens

If you fancy yourself as an amateur photographer but can’t afford the high spec camera smartphones, a clip-on camera lens could be the upgrade you’ve been waiting for. 

These lenses provide a variety of options like a fisheye lens, a microlens, and a wide-angle lens, giving more depth and angles to your photos and videos. Other features may include extended zoom, colour filters, and additional lenses.

Tracking app

A lot of smartphones come equipped with tracking software that allows you to locate your phone if it’s stolen or misplaced. Alternatively, a host of free tracking apps can help protect your phone and information from theft. 

Some allow your phone to be accessed remotely, preventing thieves from using it if it’s stolen. Others give location and information data for potential scam calls and texts. Be sure to check out the best option for you.

Waterproof case

If you haven’t got the latest and greatest smartphone on the market, your phone isn’t likely to be waterproof. To keep up with the latest trend, invest in a waterproof case. It gives added protection to your phone and allows you to take photos and videos underwater. 

These cases are surprisingly affordable and are available for many phone models.

Document scanner

If you’re a student or someone who works in an office, you will undoubtedly marvel at the handiness of a document scanner app. Eliminating the need for a printer and scanner, you can use your camera to create a scanned PDF file that can be swiftly attached to an e-mail.

 

Product Review: Almond Sweet Oil

I am so into oils these days. They are great to have around the house because they are so multitasking. I use my oils in many different ways and I am forever experimenting with them. One of the latest additions to my oil collection is this Almond Sweet Oil by Naissance. This is one of my current favourite carrier oils. I mix it a lot with essential oils for my hair and skin, and it blends in easily, which is why I use it pretty much everyday now.
