What are your customers looking for when they shop online? A bargain of course. The best possible articles of clothing at best possible prices. Customers will continue to shop around and only come back to you if your price is lowest. Do you offer your customers some kind of bonus if they shop with you such as FREE SHIPPING, A PERCENTAGE OFF SALE or COUPONS towards their purchase? Does your website offer a newsletter with Internet specials only? What is your "Return Policy"?
By year 2010 online apparel spending is expected to reach $28.4 billion. So if you are in online apparel business, you want to treat your customers right.
What is everyone buying? Well, I notice a real trend in replica designer apparel and accessories. It doesn't have to cost a million bucks, just look like real thing. Customers are also looking for designer apparel. I have also noticed whereas you would think most people would be searching for ARMANI or super popular main stream brands, to my surpise most customers are looking for less known yet highly fashionable designer names such as CHETTA, FUBU , GLAM SOULS just to name a few. So, if you operate a discount apparel website and you want to keep your customers happy, don't only offer mainstream designers because your customer will end up shopping somewhere else. A happy customer is a repeat and good customer.
