Fabletics – Breast Cancer Awareness

In the ongoing battle against breast cancer, real progress has been made in the last several decades. But the war against it is far from over, and those fighting it need all of the allies that they can get. Not all of these have to be medical professionals. Celebrities from various industries have been shown to be very effective in increasing breast cancer awareness levels among the public and soliciting donations for various organizations. Actress Angelina Jolie and singer Sheryl Crow are among the high profile entertainers who have lent their names to this cause.

And now they are joined by actress/fashion designer Kate Hudson. It was announced in September that Hudson would be October’s honorary ambassador to Fashion Target Breast Cancer (FTBC). This British-based organization was founded in 1996 as a fashion-based charity to raise money for breast cancer research in the United Kingdom. Since its inception, FTBC has raised £14,000,000 with the help of fashion industry icons like Ralph Lauren, Naomi Campbell, and Kate Moss. Hudson was recruited by fellow designer Michael Korrs and in addition to her “ambassadorial” duties for the organization, has designed a special outfit for it. Part of the revenue from this athletic ensemble which includes leggings, a sports bra, and two tank tops, will go to FTBC. And as a celebrity who advocates a healthy lifestyle, Hudson seems a natural choice for this position. In addition for being a proponent for diet and exercise, she is a co-founder of the athletic clothing line Fabletics.

Founded in 2013 with partners Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, Fabletics offers a line of the very popular clothing and accessories known as “athleisure”. The company opened several brick and mortar stores in malls at several cross-country locations in 2015. It is projected to add seventy-five to a hundred new locations nationwide by 2020. The company offers a subscription survey for regular shoppers. These consumers first fill out a survey based on clothing preferences and lifestyle needs. The first personalized outfit costs $25. Then, for a monthly fee of $49, Fabletics will provide these shoppers with a new personalized outfit every month. Subscribers also have the option of “un-subscribing” from month to month. The subscription can be canceled at any time as well. Fabletics added a men’s “active wear” line in 2015, and added bathing suits and dresses to its collection in 2016. The line has been favorably compared in terms of style and durability to other high profile sportswear designers and has been featured in well-known fashion magazines such as Vogue.

So given Fabeltics’ rising star within the fashion industry, watchers should not only expect to see a lot of Hudson as a charity spokeswoman, but on runways as well.

Fabletics Dominating Women’s Active Wear And Planning Up To 100 New Stores

You’ve seen the great TV spots with Kate Hudson wearing active wear from the Fabletics line she co-founded. The brand has become a leader in comfortable work-out gear, both in e-commerce and now in brick and mortar stores.

Fabletics’ business co-founders Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler have recently announced Fabletics clothing you can touch and try on. The branding geniuses are covering all the fashionable bases, planning on adding up to 100 retail stores across the country within the next five years.

Fabletics exploded on to the active wear scene just three years ago and has swiftly soared to the top. The brand is proud of its one million VIP members located around the globe. Having a online subscription start-up is no easy feat. Many of them begin beautifully and then quickly burn out, but Fabletics has maintained its prime spot at the top.

Many would credit Kate Hudson for the brand’s growing popularity. She really wears the clothing that has her signature casual chic style all over the line on. When she’s not on the Hollywood red carpet, she’s a normal mom with two young boys living an active lifestyle. The brand’s philosophy is simple: “Live your passion.” Kate Hudson wants to encourage Fabletics members to keep moving, stay healthy and wear clothing that is affordable, looks great and offers fit and function.

Fabletics’ entire line is designed and produced in-house at the company’s large L.A. headquarters. The active wear brand is able to create numerous new styles each month and pass the savings on to VIP members. When a shopper joins subscription membership, they will save up to 50% off regular pricing and earn points towards free loyalty items. The first outfit for new VIP members costs just $25 with free shipping. Plus, VIP members can shop Kate Hudson’s closet each month and buy the actress’ favorites.

As a VIP member, the shopper always has the power to shop or not shop every month. It’s easy to opt out, too. A VIP logs into her account to click on the “Skip the Month” button by the 5th of each month, and then she won’t be charged.

If a VIP fails to take action by that window of time, then her credit card will be charged $49.95 on the 6th until she cancels.

White Shark Media Checks In With Customers Consistently

The best thing about service that people get from White Shark Media is that the people in the office are willing to check in with customers often. Customers who come to White shark Media are looking for better web pages or marketing, but that does not mean that they are going to get instant results. White Shark Media tries to give customers their best results, and that requires a lot of tracking and overtime. The staff lets customers in on that work ethic, and they make a point of updating people often.

The updates that customers get will come from the staff at regular times, or the customers can actually ask for the updates that they are looking for. When this is necessary, the staff will set aside time that lets them call over to a customer who is looking for an update, and that will help the customer get something on the schedule. Customers get a lot of peace of mind out of this, and White Shark Media is happy to offer the service.

A reporter from Glass Door says that the service also comes with updates that are visual. Customers want to see the results of the service that they are paying for, but it is hard for them to show what they have done without any visual aids. The visual aids that the staff shares can come over in an email, and the staff will even explain what they have done. The explanation is really valuable, and it prevents confusion for the client. The staff is willing to explain so that everyone is on the same page as the work continues.

The visual aids that show designs that have been done can be adjusted if that is what the client wants, or the staff can keep going on with their work. There is going to be a record of what the staff has done, and that is going to make it much easier for the staff to move on with their work.

The clients know that they have gotten what they paid for, and the staff knows that they are on the right track. This is a lot easier than asking people just to wait until the process is over at White Shark Media according to true report from Top SEOs. No one should have to wait that long, and it helps when the staff is able to schedule regular times for the client. This is much easier for everyone, and it gives clients real value.
