Additional Notes

  • Lower than usual number of Picks in relation to skips for samples launched thus far in November
  • 8 styles were submitted by me for Picks
  • All fall within the upper right-hand quadrant on the graph, meaning these styles had a higher than average number of pick votes and pick comments per day
  • Those styles submitted for picks were fit and flare styles, sleeveless, and solid with one added detail to the style (for example: embellished neck, lace, pleating)

Comparison of BTB vs. Non-BTB

  • For the year 2013, products launched on-site that were BTB had an avg. sales velocity of: $354.63
  • Compared to non-BTB products launched for sale on site that had an avg. sales velocity of: $270.93
  • Interesting to think about when comparing the number of styles launched (BTB vs. Non-BTB) for the year 2013
