SELLING SWIMWEAR

Last few month countries all around there is under serious pressure. Epidemy of new Coronavirus is spreading to every corner of our planet. We all are fighting against this invisible attacker. Being affraid that it will not enter into our houses or harm anyone of our dearest.

Ok, it’s May already, even in our country we can go normal shopping without restrictions. Wearing a face mask is not any particular restriction, more unconvenient measure. But last few months all stores, except those with food, were closed. Online shopping went very popular; all online stores were full of new orders. Even Etsy reported that online sells grew up to 30% in first Quarter of 2020.

Yes, I did online shopping in last few months, but what did I buy actually. Plants, shower gels, shampoos etc.

Clothes? No.

Things for holidays? No.

Things for jogging? No.

Underwear? Yes.

Things for in-house entertaining? Yes.

Swimwear? No. Why is that? Do we know whether we could go on holidays? Not sure. I did cancel some reservations for coming summer, because of travel restrictions.

Our shop sells Men’s Swimwear, so we are in the category “non-necessary products”. But we will survive. We are still alive and ready for the moment when restrictions will be cancelled.

I expected much more

from Facebook. I am going to describe my experience with advertising our shop and our items on Facebook. Promoted this social media as a big family, millions of fans waiting for items, waiting for promotions, waiting for shopping. But it wasn’t so. Yes, most likely our shop/page was promoted, but result was pure. Few new friends, few new fans, but far away from selling even one item through Facebook. Not one.

Facebook is obviously a media for promoting people with selfies, promoting people who only wait to be seen and to face the reactions for what they publish.

Yeah, you look great, what a fantastic body, so cute, you name what they’ve got. This is Facebook is really meant to be, for getting attention.

I have published promotion on Facebook every single week, sometimes even twice a week, promoting our shop on etsy.com and got only 1% of all visits. Single 1% from Facebook.

Yes, I will publish stories on Facebook, but I won’t spend single EUR for extra promotion, because it’s worth it.

My point of view. Period. Oh, yes, we are producing men’s swimwear. Regular swimwear, without anykind of suggestion to xxx or sex, just swimwear for ordinary men. And yes we got customers from all over the world, but not through Facebook. Maybe it will change, maybe.

Swimwear for Nudist ?

Do men who enjoy bathing without swimwear should have a piece or two of swimwear in their closet ?

First thought is, nudist men do not need swimwear. Why should they ? They bath naked, they walk around nude beach naked, they do cooking naked, they do sport naked.

But on some occasion even nudist men need swimwear. For example going to spa resort, when specific rules instruct visitors that nudity is prohibited. Sometimes even for rehab from physical injuries when it is really not propriate to do exercises naked in front of nurses or physiotherapists. In those cases men need swimwear. VittoriSwimwear got clients who are basically nudists but in such cases they need good-looking swimwear. They mostly choose boxer type, Storm is most popular. You can also find other models on etsy  shop

Don’t go shopping if you are angry

There are days when things are not going in proper way. Either you can’t find similar pair of socks, your wake-up clock was overslept, your butter is simply to cold to use on your not so hot toast. Not to mention moon position.

Still you need unstress yourself. Is shopping right way ?

I will give some reasons why shopping is not a good way to get releave stress.

  1. Most likely you are going to search a thing you don’t really need.
  2. Your pay day is not going to be soon and your wallet is empty.
  3. Your searched item is not on stock.
  4. Desired item is either in wrong color or in wrong size available.
  5. Still need to satisfy yourself with the purchase ?

Do not do it !

Rather go for a long walk, your mind will clear up.

Or even better swim a mile in your favourite pool, you will notice there are plenty of pretty people around you, observing barely nude body is a good way to relax. Beside that after swimming a mile, you will get into octopus mood. Why not use Royal Flush ?

First Experience with Marketing Expert

Each manufacturer or seller who starts with a production thinks about how to sell his products. Most likely you can’t be an expert for all fields. If you are good in thinking and management you probably do not posses skills for the marketing.

Same happened with me when started company and manufacturing Men’s Swimwear. I covered the management, logistics, finance, other of our company were responsible for design, website. Everything was set up, idea that burned in our minds long time was finally born, fabric was bought, production started, website with online shop was on air.

My anniversary of graduation came on the way, old school-mates gathered as each and every year. One among them was also marketing expert. You know the feeling, when you are young and restless; you expect everything should be done quick and immediately. I came to my “school-mate=marketing expert”, described him my idea and who wouldn’t, I asked him for a help. He answered only with one sentence: “I do not work with start-up or with newly brands.”

Of course I was disappointed. What is real challenge, to make a growth of the product with annual turnover with about 1 mio EUR by let’s say 10-15% or start with something new from zero. Obviously for my school-mate Vittori Swimwear was not a challenge for him. And I realized that I need to find different way, be patient and finally rely on my own feelings and on my own work.

Today after couple of years of that moment, Vittori Swimwear is not anonymous brand anymore; we sell our swimwear to 3 continents, USA, Canada, Australia and many EU countries. Our customers are satisfied and we develop new models. _MG_0293

Vittori & Tango

The Author of this blog is a tango dancer. Argentine Tango. Pashionate dance. Various techniques. Close Embrace is one of them.

index

In tight position, where two dancers are tight with their upper parts of their bodies. Where very short and exact movement by the men’s chests or shoulders are important where the lady or whole couple would go. Forward, left, right or just making various movements like ocho, colgada, volcada, gancho without leaving the spot. Observing tango and not knowing what tango is really about or from the side viewer’s eyes, tango looks like being provocative, sensual or even perverse. But for tango dancers like myself, tango demands just lots of concentration and quick thinking how to make lady dancer comfortable during the dance. Major credit is when she tells you at the end of the tanda, yes it was wonderful dancing with you, soon once again ?

Vittori swimwear is the same. On the first sight when mentioning that Vittori Swiwmear have push uppads inside it sounds provocative, little perverse. But with push up pad inside Vittori Swimwear are different, follows nature lines of men’s body. Far, far away of being perverse swimwear. Once Vittori, always Vittori, say our customers from Australia, USA, Canada, Italy, France, Scotland, Germany, Chile, Brasil and many more. Ready to discover why ?
