Fabletics Makes inroads in the Fashion Industry with Smart Marketing

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is making inroads in the e-commerce fashion market to stake its rightful claim, in a move that has placed it on direct path with Amazon. According to Forbes Magazine article published on November 2016, Fabletics is a fast growing activewear currently valued at $250 million, while Amazon controls 20% of e-commerce fashion market. Industry insiders attribute the record breaking growth of Fabletics to a number of factors, including effective use of a subscription mechanic that encourages brand loyalty, target marketing, subscription membership and service convenience. The technique has worked for Fabletics because highly valued brands are always identified by the quality of goods or service offered and price. To make its marketing strategy work efficiently, Fabletics has also deployed additional elements.

 

These include last-mile service, element of gamification, customer experience, exclusive design and brand recognition. The other strategy that is keenly being followed by Fabletics is positioning the company along the lines of successful entities like Apple and Warby Parker. The company has realized this target by opening up several brick and mortar stores in Illinois, California, Florida, and Hawaii and other places. Fabletics currently operates 16 physical stores. According to the company General Manager, Greg Throgmartin, the other secret to Fabletics success lies in its foresighted strategy to create a modern, re-imagined version of high value brand from the onset. Through this strategy, the fashion brand has effectively roped in its membership model to offer personalized service by selling trendy fashion at half the price offered by competitors.

 

With regards to the stores, Fabletics follows a three-prong approach that encourages reverse showrooming, smart use of online data and a marketing approach that focuses on accessibility, people and culture. Fabletics has indeed turned around how reverse showrooming is conducted to its advantage; unlike most competitors who have taken heat by having people visit their websites and buy elsewhere. For Fabletics reverse showrooming strategy, the most important thing is making the browsing experience positive by building lasting relationships. The move has seen many subscribing members visit the store to make purchases. The other bit of the strategy involves submitting the articles related to the items customers are interested in into their shopping carts, whether they chose to conduct their shopping in the store or elsewhere.

Fabletics Goes Fabulous Once More

 

In the October of 2013, Fabletics materializes out of the joint venture of Ressler, Goldenberg and the splendid Kate Hudson, who together realized the painful limitations in the active wear market for women. Going in a slightly different direction than most of its contemporaries, Fabletics grew faster than anyone would have expected, reaching France, UK and Germany in the middle of 2014. In September of the same year, the company was welcomed by Canada with open arms and in 2015, Australia perked up its fashion as well.
Since its advent, the company has enjoyed the spotlight of the fashion industry, which became brighter, if it could, with the recent S/S’16 launch. Featured and sold via The Clothes Maiden, the line of gym wear has introduced quite a ripple in the female department. Hudson was quick to grab the problems of such gears: they are dull coloured and always a little less modest than one would like them to. Bringing her own creativity into action, she has caused Fabletics to spin a collection that sports bright colours, beautiful prints and does not reveal the female body as much as the others. The S/S’16 line presents a perfect combination of comfort and fashion and with Kate Hudson’s nod of approval, a huge market as well.
This, however, is not even the best part. While most of the designer clothes would very well cramp your wallets and crush your savings, Fabletics has broken the steel-like monotony of high prices and introduced its clothes at staggeringly low prices. The first purchases are discounted for all customers, with some prices dropping down to a meager $25, adorned with the facility of free shipping. This is topped up by the VIP membership gold mine where a product costing $100 cuts its price by an unbelievable 50% and shipping is deemed free for a lifetime. As though this was not enough, the membership does not come flanked by unannounced terms and conditions, is receptive to cancellation any time the customer wants to and makes sure the customers receive the latest and the best picks right into their inboxes. A volunteer’s detail of the pleasant VIP experience is given.
In 2015, Fabletics also began its own men’s line. At this rate, Fabletics has set the highest possible standards for itself and so far, has not disappointed its customers in meeting them.
