All about my online boutique....
I opened my boutique only 2 months ago with a dream to provide women with the most modern, sexy and fashionable clothing at affordable prices. I started my boutique with next to nothing and took a leap of faith to achieve my goals. I spent months sourcing the hottest fashions in Australia at the best prices so that I could forward those great prices to my customers. I also wanted a way to give back to the community so every chance that I can I donate some of my clothing to local charities such as womens homeless shelters etc. So what is my dream? I dream of one day running one of the biggest online boutiques in Australia and being able to donate a significant % of my profits into charities, be it in money donations or clothing but this will not be possible without more customers and profits. I watch the large boutiques growing every year and reading articles about the millions they have made that fincial year however you never see anything about them giving back to the charity which is just sad to see such big companies lining their already very deep pockets without giving anything back to the world.
Why do I need funding?
Unfortunately because I started my business with very little finances, the expansion of more stock has been very slow while trying to get my name out there as well. I would like to expand my stock range to be able to provide more choice for customers, because of course a customer is going to be more engaged and more inclined to share with friends and family an online store that has many many different styles then a clothing store with a minimal range. Each week I receive emails from the wholesalers with new arrivals, sale items etc however I have found that I seem to be missing out on a lot of styles simply because I am not local to them and am unable to visit and purchase in person so because of this if I can raise above and over what I have put down as the target amount I will be travelling to visit them in person to make sure that I get the best styles.
Do I have what it takes?
I know that I have what it takes! You may call that over confident but I call that determination. I have worked incredibly hard for everything that I have in life, I have never had handouts or help from friends or family but in return this has made me an incredibly strong minded woman and every goal that I have ever set for myself I have achieved. What makes me stand out from other boutiques? The fact that I will be giving a specific % to charities would make me stand out immensely. There is nothing that makes you feel better then buying something for yourself except when you know that your helping out others at the same time and this will appeal to a lot of customers. As well as having incredibly marketable products I also post worldwide so that I can expand my customer base. I also have very competitive pricing which you will be able to view on my website.
What are my future goals?
I would love to design and have my own clothing line manufactured. Having my own collection produced would mean lower prices again and cutting out the middle man which in return would attract more customers, bigger profits and more % going into charities in need. I will also be looking for potential investors with discussions of serious returns, if this would at all be of any interest to you I would absolutely love for you to get in touch with me, be it via my website or facebook would be absolutely fantastic.
So where can you view my store?
I would absolutely love for you to visit my facebook page, website and instagram just so that you have a chance to see what I have achieved in such a short time and how much potential my business already has.
