Keeping up with the latest trends is essential to success in the clothing industry. To beat your competitors, you'll need to learn how to use social media, fast fashion, and the supply chain to your advantage.

The Increasing Importance of Social Media

Research from the Pew Internet Project shows 74 percent of Internet users also use social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Perhaps even more importantly, 89 percent of people between 18 and 29 years old use social media.

This creates multiple opportunities for companies to reach new customers. Some of the most effective opportunities don't even cost anything. While retailers can advertise their products on social media, it often makes more sense for them to encourage shoppers to post reviews on their own timelines.

Many companies experience seasonal fluctuations that can make them extremely busy during some months and very slow during others.

Over the last few decades, larger companies have acquired a vast number of independent third-party logistics (3PL) providers. To some extent, this makes sense. As supply chains have become increasingly global, larger 3PL companies can presumably offer more comprehensive services. While this approach looks smart from one perspective, it has become clear that many organizations can get better services from mid-tier 3PLs. This is especially true when it comes to shippers that serve niche markets.

If you're uncertain whether a Tier-II 3PL is the best option for your organization, consider how these benefits would help you find greater success.
