Inside Fashion Brands’ Secret to Smooth International Expansion
Navigating pricing in a new market
When entering a new market, one of the key elements for a brand to consider is setting the right price, relevant to the country you’re addressing.
Are your competitors’ t-shirt prices consistently 10% lower in the US than they are in the UK? Entering a new market with this data in mind will make the transition significantly smoother, avoiding the guesswork of pricing your collections based on manual research, which is inevitably prone to error.
A specific category could be popular in one market, while being minor in another, therefore your home market pricing strategy may not be the ideal one internationally. This is precisely where Retviews comes in, as a brand’s biggest ally when expanding globally.

A new market could mean a shift in assortment
Pricing your collections to perfection internationally is key, but another vital factor is getting the right assortment structure when expanding into new markets.
Considering the differences in style and consumer behavior across different countries, your assortment will likely need a shift when entering new markets.
