Using Stores after Online Businesses is Helping Fabletics Reach More Customers

It might seem backwards that people would start an online business before they open an actual store. Fabletics did just that however. They first opted to start an online business before they choose to open an actual store and to place products in the stores. The reason behind this however is, there is a number of stores which opened first online and then led to opening stores. Retailers like Apple first started this and Fabletics followed behind leaving their own mark in the business world.

 

Retail stores are able to introduce the products that customers love to new consumers. It will allow for people to continue using their favorites items without having to wait for them to be restocked or to ship out. The actual stores open up in the areas where a large amount of orders come from. For an example, if there are thousands of people who live in Chicago and place orders for Fabletics, a store would open up in that area and products could then be purchased locally instead of through an online or virtual store.

 

The new Fabletics stores allow for data to be collected and used to address issues that might be occurring with their products. For instance, if a dressing room is being used and people are trying on a large number of styles but don’t purchase those items, there could be a problem with the fit of the item or the fabric used for that specific item. If they are noticing that this is a problem, they are able to figure out what they can do to make the item better.

 

The other added bonus is that if a popular product is out of stock, the retail stores are able to place an order quicker than what the customer might be able to do when ordering online. The software used is able to select a product to carry in the store which brings in the highest sales and to keep ordering that one style. It also makes it easier for people who like to try something prior to purchasing to be able to try the product before committing to purchase month after month.

 

The Lifestyle Quiz is also used to help customers who need to better understand what styles are out there to know what fits them the most. The quiz will give an idea on what style to order and will keep the results stored for any future orders that may come in.

Orange Coast College – article recap

While most people are drawn to flowers because they smell good, Orange Coast College students, faculty and visitors are coming to check out a flower because of how bad it smells. The Amorphophallus titanum plant recently bloomed, a rare event that produces a rotting smell. Aptly referred to as “the corpse flower” this beautiful and endangered plant originated from the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The plant at Orange Coast College has the nickname Little Dougie, and has enjoyed its home at the college since 2006 where it has grown to a height of almost five feet, and a weight of 30 pounds. However, corpse flowers can grow to be more than 200 pounds.

 

The distinctive rotting smell is typically produced when beetles pollinate the plant. However, Little Dougie is pollinated by hand by members of the school. It is not surprising that the bloom is such a momentous occasion on the campus because it takes about a decade for a plant to make its first bloom, which lasts about 1-2 days. After that, the plant only blooms every couple of years. Since the college’s last corpse flower drew about 1,000 visitors when it bloomed in 2014, Orange Coast College set up visiting hours and a live webcam for this year’s bloom.

 

Besides it’s horticulture program, the community college in Costa Mesa, California offers education for trades, skilled professions, and licensed trades as well as transferable courses so students can continue onto California State University or University of California. The school is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and has earned a place as one of the top transfer institutions in the country. Their goal is to provide affordable education for the more than 25,000 students who attend.

 

Orange Community College is spread out over 164 acres where students can enjoy modern facilities and technology in over 135 career and academic programs. When students aren’t visiting the corpse flower, they can participate in a full array of clubs, sports teams and an Associated Student Body. The college continues to grow and improve, as well as engage with the surrounding community.

How Roberto Santiago Revitalized Joao Pessoa By Building A Mall

Roberto Santiago is a highly successful businessman. He got his start in the world of business after graduating from the Pio X Marist College in Joao Pessoa, Brazil, as well as the University Center of Joao Pessoa where he earned is Business Administration degree. The first company he founded was a company that designed and fabricated cardboard boxes for other companies. These boxes were used to package their products and sell them to consumers.

In the mid-80’s Roberto Santiago entered the worlds of real estate, retailing, and entertainment by buying a large plot of land in Joao Pessoa and then designing a huge shopping mall to go on it. His mall, Manaira Shopping Mall, opened for business in 1989. Over the past 20 years, Roberto has continuously upgraded and added onto the mall in order to meet evolving needs. The mall has developed into one of the main attractions of the city and brings in people from the whole region that want to experience what it offers.

Manaira Shopping Mall is one of the biggest malls in Brazil. There are seemingly endless retail stores offering every type of good imaginable and for every sized budget. There is also a huge food court which Roberto Santiago has added onto twice since the mall opened. Today the food choices run the gamut from cheap fast food to a couple of four-star restaurants. Roberto Santiago doesn’t want his mall to just appeal to one demographic or another, he wants everyone to find what they are looking for at Manaira Shopping Mall.

Santiago’s mall has a great deal of entertainment options. There is an arcade area that also includes video games and a bowling alley. There is also a large movie theater with several screens including one that can show movies in IMAX.

One of the biggest and most culturally relevant additions to Manaira Shopping Mall that Roberto Santiago has made is Domus Hall which he located on top of the mall. This is a huge air-conditioned concert hall that can host up to 10,000 people. It is comprised of two levels with the lower one for private parties. The top floor is designed for concerts but it is also customizable. It has held fairs, theater performances, art exhibits, weddings, and other large events.

The mall that Roberto Santiago built has been a boon to the local community. It has brought a ton of jobs for people to work at the mall. The events in Domus Hall also bring in customers from across the region who spend money in the mall’s stores as well as the restaurants. The area around the mall has also been revitalized since he founded it with new office space and residential homes going in on a regular basis.

Oncotarget a Journal Dedicated to Making High Quality Research Accessible

As a research scientist, I am challenged to find accessible and affordable journal subscriptions that can compliment my scientific research. Most journals offer expensive yearly subscription rates or charge high per article costs. With cancer research rapidly evolving, I need access to a selection of relevant journals. However, the costs are prohibitive and information in a single journal is limited to a few topics. I need a journal that publishes articles that reviews technology while also offering insights into the policy issues that affect cancer research. It would great to find one authoritative journal that covers all the fields that relevant, with articles that are authored by leading scientists. I recently came across a journal that I decided to take a closer look at. A journal aptly titled Oncotarget. The journal contained scientific research that was surprisingly right-off-the-press. The journal not only covered oncology research, but broadly included other important related areas of research including endocrinology, cardiology, cell biology and pharmacology just to name a few. Follow Oncotarget on Twitter.

To get a better idea of how the journal fairs in comparison with others, I looked up the journal’s impact factor. The impact factor is defined as a window into the journal’s success as a tool to share research information and attract reputable scientists to contribute high quality research. With an impressive impact factor of 5.168, Oncotarget is cited regularly which is helping the journal and its content remain prominent. Researchers keep up with impact factors as a yard stick to determine where to publish research findings. High impact factor journals attract high caliber authors.

I also considered the journal’s cost when making a decision on whether to spend resources on a subscription. While most journal subscriptions are costly, Oncotarget offers free-access. This means that the research papers are available to the public to download and print on demand at no cost. The research is accessible allowing breakthroughs to be shared broadly.

With Oncotarget’s goal defined as ensuring a life without disease, the journal is well on its way to fulfilling that goal by increasing availability of high caliber research. Visit his profile on Google Scholar.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Trying To Win Versus Amazon

In order to beat Amazon in the online apparel market, you need to try and chip away at the 20 percent of the sales they are making each year in this highly competitive market. While most of the competition is happy working in the shadows of Amazon, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is trying to bridge that gap while scoring over $250 million in sales. If the numbers are any indication of what may be happening on the horizon, we may have a new number one in the apparel sales market in the very near future.

 

When we hear Hudson talking about her athleisure brand, it always seems to come down to a couple of key factors that points to the success of the company. On the one hand we have the sales process that is known as reverse showrooming, and on the other it is the incredible membership perks at Fabletics. For those who need to see visual proof, we stroll over to the Fabletics stores at the mall, and observe the way these women are shopping. This is not your ordinary shopping experience, we have women trying on just about all the workout apparel, taking the Lifestyle Quiz for membership benefit enhancements, and just window-shopping without a concern in the world. This no=pressure sales approach seems to have struck a chord with the ladies.

 

As fun and exciting as it may be to shop in the retail stores at the mall, the real money is being made at the Fabletics e-commerce sites. Going back to the mall, if you have a Fabletics membership, everything you try on will show up now on your online profile. This is why so many women leave the store without buying. When they eventually make it to the online store, they know what size of what styles flatters their frame, so they can shop the vast online inventory without any concerns. These women who would normally spend a few dollars to try one piece at Amazon, now are buying shopping carts full of merchandise they know already fits.

 

Membership perks at Fabletics do not end there, these female shoppers are getting free shipping on all those online purchases of leggings, tank tops, and yoga pants. Membership also entitles these shoppers to discounted pricing on apparel and even the help of their very own Fabletics shopping assistant. The assistant uses your quiz answers to help them decide on one piece each month they thing the customer will love.
