Sales Channels & Expansion
The strategic choices we all make when marketing and selling our brands are needing to consider more market diversity and change now than ever before. Wholesale, own retail, ecommerce, concession, consignment, licensing, brick & mortar, online, marketplaces, export, distribution, agents, events… the list goes on.
Setting an effective expansion strategy, fixing failed strategies or responding to opportunities in a way that is good for the long-term future of your business involves so many considerations that it is no wonder we are asked for help. In this rapidly changing commercial climate a broader view is often required for everyone to see things clearly again.
Your needs and opportunities are set at the centre of our focus as we work with you, identifying where improvements or changes can make the biggest or best matched impact.
The market is going through changes that have wide reaching effects. This comes with challenges but also with opportunities. The globalisation of brands, change of focus in retail, establishment of new shopping habits, impact of new generations in the marketing mix and political influences cause us to sit back to consider our sales and marketing strategies more frequently than ever before.
International strategies, with a mix of sales and licensing activities, may start affecting other parts of our business. The requirements on the capabilities across the departments may also change as a consequence.
Working with a partner like Conceptable keeps a clear focus whilst taking your overall business requirements into account.
So whether you are looking to change, add or expand into sales channels, you can rely on the mix of our broader insight and experience to help you guide you and your teams into a direction that suits your brand and business.
A simple review and resulting workshops or mentoring can make a huge difference in your direction going forward. Our consultancy can help you to achieve the ongoing goals as well.
Why not ask for an initial consultation so we can review together how we can help you?
Not everyone needs the same approach
Examples of how we can help your business
No two businesses we encounter are at the exact same stage or in directly comparable situations. Our approach is necessarily customised to make sure we get the best result for everyone involved.
What they do have in common is that that they typically are involved in fashion, sportswear, footwear, accessories, homeware or leisure products.
The below three involvement levels may help you to identify what would best help your business.
The first level of assistance we can give is guidance, usually in the form of mentoring, coaching or workshops.
Guidance is most suitable if you are aware that you or your team do have the skills to solve their challenges but may need some direction or affirmation in how to go about it or to get onto the right track.
It is a great way to increase or develop skill sets, either for yourself as a leader or for your team.
Contact us about mentoring, coaching or workshops today.
The second level of assistance we can provide your business is a review. In this swift process we evaluate your current situation and identify where improvements may make the most significant impact and provide guidance and direction in our report for future steps.
A Review is most suitable if you know there is an issue that needs to be resolved but need more detailed confirmation and guidance to get to resolutions.
It is a great way to demonstrate internally and if needed externally how the business could improve and potentially resolve the issues it faces.
Contact us to start a review and get recommendations and guidance for your business.
The third level of assistance we can give is consultancy. This is where we assign one or more experts to actively work with you or your team. Depending on the requirements and goals, the consultancy and team are adapted to make sure they can deliver.
Consultancy is the most suitable option if there are significant skill shortages or lack of resource in relation to the goals that need to be achieved. This could be simply because the result required is beyond of the capabilities of your team or for instance that there are challenges which need specific attention from someone who has dealt with this before.
Consultancy is flexible and completely adapted to what your business needs, and is always preceded by a detailed discussion to ensure the right alignment.
