Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Taking on Amazon and All Comers

When you are selling online in the clothing niche, you have already come to know that Amazon is the company to beat. Looking at the numbers over the past decade, Amazon has been comfortably selling 20 percent of all the apparel in an extremely crowded niche. While many retailers are resigned to the fact that Amazon is the retail giant to beat, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is trying to change the landscape. In only a three-year span, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has sold $250 million in women’s active-wear with no signs of slowing down

 

In order to get a clear understanding as to why Fabletics is shaking things up in the online apparel market, listen carefully to what Hudson says has been the foundation to the success of her company. Hudson says reverse showrooming and her company’s membership package are turning shoppers of her stores to loyal long-term customers. Look inside any of the Fabletics retail stores, you see something that might be considered unconventional in retail sales. Women are browsing all the racks, they are sitting and taking the Lifestyle Quiz, they are window shopping, and they are leaving the stores empty-handed after trying on leggings, yoga pants, and tank tops.

 

If women are leaving, who is responsible for the $250 million in sales of this athleisure brand?

 

The reason that Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is closing ground on Amazon has to do with the overall shopping experience. When these women leave the Fabletics stores after trying on all that apparel, they know exactly what they are doing. The Fabletics store instantly will upload all those items worn in the store to the online profile of the customer, so they now have the option to shop online and know exactly which size will fit them. Unlike shopping at Amazon and guessing and hoping your apparel fits, you go to the Kate Hudson’s Fabletics site and shop with the assurance you got the sizes already right.

 

In addition to the ease in which you can place your orders online, the Kate Hudson’s Fabletics customer receives numerous membership perks that only solidify their love for this company. Members are getting all their online orders shipped for free, they are getting deep discounts on all the apparel both in the retail stores and online, and they are set up with their very own Fabletics personal shopping assistant. The pampering continues at every turn when shopping at Fabletics, and this is without even mentioning the high quality of the apparel too.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)

Rocketship Education: What Every School Should Try To Be

The technological era has caused massive shifts across many different industries and fields, but the educational realm is, by far, one of the most significantly affected. As technology continues to advance, more and more schools are gaining access to digital resources. In schools all over the country, students are given tablets, computers, and other devices. This new accessibility is opening up a whole new world of opportunity for both teachers and students, but some are hesitant to embrace this change entirely.

To some extent, a level of hesitance is important; radical changes without justification won’t improve education. On the other hand, technology is capable of so much, and education is doing itself a disservice if it doesn’t play into the strengths of the modern computer. Thankfully, a strong balance has been struck: blended learning. Blended learning seeks to combine the two into one effective package. Many schools have implemented blending learning into curriculum, but one organization sticks out: Rocketship Education.

Rocketship is an enormous proponent of blended learning. According to Preston Smith, CEO and co-founder of Rocketship Education, they are “staunch advocates for the purpose integration of technology to support student learning and promote student agency.” Generally speaking, technology is great at giving students independence because it allows students to self-adapt depending on their strengths and weaknesses. Rocketship also emphasizes the relationship between teachers and parents, and technology gives a unique platform for this relationship. By keeping lines of communication open between all parties, Rocketship intends to make the classroom experience more transparent, unlike some traditional schools, which sometimes keep parents in the dark as to what their children are doing in school.

Rocketship schools are located in many states, but the San Jose location is doing a remarkable job of helping underprivileged youth. Along with low-income students, San Jose is also home to a significant number of ELL (English Language Learner) students. Because of the gaps these students inevitably face, Rocketship has worked hard to spread schools in San Jose. Since 2007, Rocketship has launched 25 of their charter schools in the San Jose area. By creating a safe ecosystem for these students, Rocketship sets an excellent example for schools everywhere. In a nation where the education gap is widening rather than narrowing, Rocketship does an excellent job of pioneering educational equality.
