The typical product lifecycle leads to as much as 33% of products going unsold. Another 33% is marked down at or below cost. Turnover in the product lifecycle accelerates awareness and builds demand and brand through scarcity, minimising the amount of product that ever reaches the first markdown and targeted disposition of the inventory that creates more profit.
Pre-sales create scarcity and a feeling of exclusivity for brands’ most passionate fans. Pre-sales also provide invaluable insights into how customers will react to new products, images and descriptions, which informs marketing and merchandising to improve full-price sell-through in the middle of the cycle.
Product drops have proven to be essential when it comes to serving loyal customers, creating brand buzz with exclusive prices. Product drops create an irresistible sense of urgency that drives your customers to want to buy new arrivals.
ESW makes hosting high volume, limited product sales a seamless experience that ties directly into your existing ecommerce platform.
