Country Road, Crowd Sourcing & Great Retail
Another great example of ‘Crowd Sourcing’ AND great retail here from Country Road.
Country Road know:
- their market
- that know that their customers are perfectly aligned to the brand
- they know that when they ask their customers what they want, they can develop that product and their customers will buy it
The other ‘great retail’ smart thing they did was understand that their core customer has favourite pieces that are the basis to their seasonal wardrobe. These products will not require their customer to think about the purchase, it will be a simple re-order. *You don’t think about buying your favourite brand of jam do you?)
They posted this on facebook:
