How to go from start-up to success

Fashion is a fast paced industry, with new trends and crazes appearing on the scene every week; sometimes it’s hard to keep up! Which is why we’ve picked out some of the industry’s best tips to help you turn your start up business into a successful fashion boutique.

  • Know your audience

When starting out, many businesses try to please everyone – but that is near-enough impossible. Focus on one target audience to begin with. Whether it’s young women, middle aged men, or children, establishing your audience will give you a direction of where to place your marketing efforts.

At Stylewise we specialise in wholesale women’s fashion – from casual tops and jeans, dresses for all occasions and accessories to match, you can browse and buy our products 24/7 on our website – www.stylewisedirect.com

  • Find the right wholesaler

Your business relies on the quality of its stock, so it’s really important to find reliable, well established wholesalers to work with. Price is obviously an important factor when choosing a wholesaler, but don’t forget quality, style and relevance are also just as important. Find a fashion wholesaler who understands the industry, who will keep you ahead of trends and will cater for your needs as a small fashion boutique.

At Stylewise Direct, we offer free next day UK delivery on orders over £400 to our clients as we know how important it is to get stock in as quickly as possible so you can start selling sooner.

  • Get online

Even if you don’t sell online, it’s important to have a website to showcase your stock. It is also imperative that your website is mobile friendly. Not only for your SEO rankings but 55% of people with smartphones shop online according to Ofcom – so it’s important that your website can easily be viewed across all devices. Your website is also a great platform to help promote any sales, offers or new product line launches. If you’re not technically minded or particularly creative, hire a web designer to create your site – a well-made and comprehensive website will be a great investment for your business.

Our website is updated every week with our latest stock, ready for our clients to purchase straight away. Take a look at our “New In” items for the latest wholesale ladies fashion styles.

Carry on…wholesale

Making the move from a cash and carry approach to purchasing through an online fashion wholesaler.

Cash and carry is a popular way for many businesses to shop. They can purchase stock in high volumes with lower unit costs. However, it does come with its disadvantages and many business owners are now moving away from these traditional means and looking towards a more digital way of purchasing.

Online fashion wholesalers have become increasingly popular for a number of reasons which is why Stylewise Direct have taken their experience and knowledge of their physical cash and carry stores and made them available online for our customers. This means you get all the benefits of an offline wholesaler, online!

Payment methods:

With a cash and carry, the clue is in the name; cash. In today’s economic climate, not many businesses are able to readily obtain cash to invest in stock which may not sell straight away, especially if you are a small or a start-up business. With an online wholesaler such as Stylewise Direct, we accept credit and debit cards as well as PayPal, giving you more freedom to shop. So if you need to stock up on some fashion staples like our women’s jeans our payment methods make it easier for you and your business.

Time Saving:

When running a business, the last thing you have on your hands is time. So driving to a cash and carry, making your selections, queuing, paying, driving back and then unloading is extremely time consuming. Using an online fashion wholesaler means you can shop and pay without having to worry about wasting precious time getting to and from the wholesaler.

Ease of Use:

When shopping at a cash and carry, you are restricted to when you can shop by their opening hours. Online wholesalers are open 24/7. So if the only time you have to shop is at 10pm to get the new season of swimwear & beachwear, we are still open and you can shop at your leisure.

Delivery:

If you do not have a vehicle already, cash and carry shopping with require some mode of transport to bring back your purchases which can add to your expense. Many online wholesaler will offer free delivery on orders over certain amounts, for example at Stylewise Direct you we offer FREE delivery on orders over £400 so your customers can start shopping in your store for their perfect party dress straight away

At Stylewise Direct we are here to make running your business that little bit easier, so if you have any questions about purchasing wholesale items from our online store or setting up an account, please email us at help@stylewisedirect.com
