#BusinessOnWednesday: Fashion that means Business

Whilst South Africa may still be a fledgling in the digital eCommerce space, the scope for business in this sector is excellent. Statista.com predicta that South Africa’s fashion scene will grow by 12.8% year on year. eCommerce will take a significant portion of this growth, especially given the accelerated shift to online retail necessitated by the buying public being housebound in 2020. Forecasts also suggest that online will amount to 8% of the total market revenue by 2023.

Pitching Meetings go both ways

Our guest suggests that sometimes saying thank you, but no thank you, and stepping away is necessary and good. Further, she challenges her prospective clients to put in the work, do their bit and respect that the advice and guidance that they are given is based on a track record of years of experience.

In a recent article she penned, she says: “I think in this current economic climate we need to remember the fundamentals. Compromising your own values will be detrimental in the long run. When you pitch for new work, don’t be shy to ask questions, they have to impress you as much as you have to impress them, it’s a two-way street.”
