Fabletics’ Strategy to Penetrate the Fashion Market

For long, the fashion industry has had Amazon controlling 20% of the e-commerce market. However, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is threatening the dominance of Amazon in the industry.

The firm is set to open a dozen more stores besides the twenty-two that is already operational in California, Hawaii, Illinois, and Florida.

Their membership strategy allows them to offer individualized services at half prices to each client, something none of their competitors have been able to achieve.

 

Fabletics has implemented the reverse showrooming strategy by making a customer’s offline browsing positive and engaging thereby building healthy relationships, building trust and getting informed of the status of local markets by gaining access to various events and activities. Fabletics uses online data collected from membership preferences, social media discussions, and the total number of sales and store-heat mapping to stock the stores with the products that satisfy clients.

 

Fabletics has been able to master the balance of employee lifestyle, consumer enlightenment, and customer service. The firm’s ability to evolve and adapt to new challenges and new competitors has enabled it to grow at an annual rate of 35%.
