Felipe Montoro Jens Improving Northeastern States with Concessions Projects

There are a lot of concessions projects going on in the Northeastern states and felipemontorojens.com highlights a few. In an effort to avoid restrictions put on federal transfers a few Northeastern states are doing the transfers through a private initiative. This helps them tighten up their fiscal accounts without eating into their investments. An example of this is the Light Rail Vehicle Project from the Bahian government. It will replace the suburban train and benefit over a million people.

Continuing with using private relationships, the expert on Infrastructure Projects, Felipe Montoro Jens, said that a large concession signed with the sanitation company by the government of Piaui will help increase people’s sewage coverage.

In Maranhao, four prisons are being constructed and will house over two thousand inmates. The government is developing a public-private partnership to get this project completed. A survey taken by Radar PPP says that over twenty public to private contracts had been signed and they total over twenty-eight billion. This number makes them the second largest area with the South states having closer to sixty contracts according to Felipe Montoro Jens.

In Pernambuco, the sanitation sector is also getting into the game. The Sanitation Company is called COMPESA and is a part of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development’s initiative. They want to use these contracted private agreements to bring in more investors. The states are eager to find other models like these to be adopted and they have the World Bank that could work well with the future contracts.

Fabletics Embraces The Power Of Its Consumers

Fabletics is a well known athleisure brand that was started in 2013 by fashion forward actress and business woman Kate Hudson. The brand specializes in fitness wear that is functional, fashionable, and multipurpose. But the companies success is not just about their quality brand, they paid attention to the consumer trends and established themselves away from the traditional marketing machine and became a progressive consumer focused organization.

Fabletics began as an unconventional fitness clothing brand. The companies founders saw the rising interest in fitness for woman in the United States but there was limited fitness wear available. The team of Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg, founders of TechStyle Fashion Group, partnered with Kate Hudson to create a new line of fitness wear that was function based but fashionable for lifestyles outside of fitness. The pieces would be trendy, comfortable, and above all reasonably priced for the average consumer.

This was a fashion brand that had never been done before, so when it came time to decide on the marketing path for Fabletics the founders continued to forge their own path. Data has shown that more consumers are choosing products based on crowd-sourced reviews. Online reviews have become the new trusted word for consumers on goods and services. Fabletics used this information to create a review-centric marketing campaign that allowed the online crowd to have the power of their success. It was another progressive leap for the athleisure brand and helped grow the company by more than 200% in its first years. As online review sites continue to grow, Fabletics embraces its customers opinions and recognizes the power and influence it brings to their brand.

While Fabletics has forged a new path in athleisure wear for woman, one of its greatest success features is its partnering founder Kate Hudson. She is a well known American actress who has proven that she can grow and run a thriving business with the best of them. She was not handed a ready made success to be the face of, rather she had to work with her team to overcome several setbacks and complications in the beginning. One of her greatest attributes for Fabletics is that she truly cares about the product and the consumers.

Hudson was very passionate about making sure that the brand provided a strong message of self beauty and empowerment for all woman. She wanted a variety of clothing pieces that worked for all body types and made women feel comfortable and beautiful while expressing their individuality. This has been a core value for the company and is the pride and center of all the designs she views. The Fabletics website provides an online tool to help customers view looks and pieces that appeal to their personality. The Lifestyle Quiz allows people to answer a few questions about themselves then filters the pieces that would work best for them. It’s just another consumer focused tool that Fabletics has to give their customers the personal touch they deserve.

Lime Crime Up And Coming In The Beauty Industry

From L.A. to Beijing, Lime Crime, the newest of competitors in the beauty space, has started to make their mark. The goal of selling their brand in China has proven to be no small feat. Strict requirements from the Chinese government have given the beauty company a fair share of obstacles to over come.

China’s regulations changed the game for how Lime Crime was to market and distribute their products in a country where there was a very high demand for their goods. It was out with the old and in with the new, as the company chose to find an alternative ways to market their beauty products.

Mandates from the government required that all cosmetic goods being sold to the wholesale market, must first be tested on animals before they are presented to the public. As a vegan brand the company whole heartily disagrees with this practice. Products being shipped from the United States could avoid being tested on animals but would be costly to the company because of complex transportation logistics, duties and taxes that would add additional cost to the consumer. There also was the hurdle of employing customer service representatives that would be able to handle a foreign language. On top of these hurdles the company discovered that counterfeits of their most popular products were being sold all over the country.

Lime Crime found a solution in teaming up with Revolve an e-commerce fashion platform to market their goods. Their ability to service the same consumer base made them the perfect partner. Starting with a seed audience through social feeds the company started to build a following. As new customers found them online they were encouraged to purchase the product through Revolve’s e-commerce platform. Fans of the product were also given exclusive access to the launch of new products early. Word of mouth carried the news and clients flocked to the site.

Working with a broad variety of influencers, both well known and lesser known the company also built it’s following on through their social media following. Choosing to stay true to their values they have succeeded against the odds.
