My client is a company that sells luxury clothes and jewellery via social media and chats. The fundamental difference between my clients and companies in a similar industry is that rather than asking their customer to come to them via website or app, they go to their clients and provide them a service via the apps they already use. The company has already produced spectacular results finically. Double digits revenue, low overheads due to no need for inventory and 100% growth. They even have extremely low return rates of 5%. To put this is comparison, Traditionally online retailers who sell clothes have a 50-60 return rate. Impressive I hear you say ?

While they are focused on luxury clothes, their vision is to create the next generation of internet commerce, interacting on a one-to-one conversation basis with their clients via their personal shopping assistants, rather than on the online catalogues.
