Retail Therapy, Shopping Tips, Word of Mouth -


There is nothing like a day of retail therapy. However, if you shop offline you have to deal with traffic, travel time and other shoppers. Shopping online is a great way for you to get the perks of retail therapy without any of the drawbacks. To make things even better, here are some online shopping tips.

When shopping for a product online, take the time to read reviews. Try finding the same product on different sites to read as many reviews as possible. Reading many reviews will help you get a more general idea of whether or not the product you are interested in meets high standards of quality.

Browse and compare products and services before making your decision. It pays to comparison shop different products and brands unless you are determined to get a particular one. Choose one that has all your desired features, but compare price points as well. Check out your favorite online retailers since they have new products available regularly.

TIP! Make sure that when you make a purchase online, you are aware of if the site is secure or not. You do not want your information being compromised in this day and age.

Word of Mouth Grows and Sustains a Brand

TIP! Be careful in regard to the online stores that you consider buying from. If the web store is poorly designed, full of misspellings, and overall fishy, you should take your money elsewhere.


Word-of-Mouth for Johnny Cupcakes:

Its unique designs piqued the initial interest from locals, but Johnny Cupcakes has grown majorly by word-of-mouth. Whether it's the novelty of the bakery-themed stores, the personal packaging, or the winding lines for a product release, the brand is always generating positive buzz from fans.

Word-of-Mouth for Stussy:

TIP! Sign up for the website's newsletter if they have one. Many times stores will give you a discount or some type of deal when you sign up for their newsletter.


Throughout its history, the brand has chosen to ignore marketing--relying instead on the influence and recognition of its fans, both big and small. Stussy never had to tell others it was a cool brand, everyone else was already doing it for them.

Word of Mouth for Ugmonk:

Sheldon maintains an open line of communication with his fanbase and relies on organic user-generated content to spread the word about Ugmonk. Through this business model, Ugmonk merchandise has made its way into 62 different countries.

TIP! Before shopping from a store that is new to you, find out what the store's reputation is like. You can usually do an online search and find out what others think of the business.


Word of Mouth for Charity Causes:

Life is Good donates a portion of every purchase to a cause, making every purchase feel like a small badge of honor. Fans proudly wear the Life is Good brand as walking advertisements to their friends and family everywhere. Additionally, the brand backs causes in a way that requires all participants to rally up supporters--anyone who didn't know about Life is Good certainly will now. Their commitment to raising money for charitable causes guarantees brand awareness. By aligning the Life is Good brand with the conviction that exists in everyone, it endlessly expands the brand's potential to not only succeed but to also do good.

WODPOW.STORE Currently, as of Oct. 2018, have started a diabetes awareness campaign launching a t-shirt design which is overlaid with the expression (a battle cry mantra) "Die or Beat These" which is in the WODPOW.STORE collection series. Proceeds from sales will go toward the "Street Cred" event scheduled for the fall of 2019.

They are rallying their efforts and calling others who suffer or has those whom they care about health stricken conditions that are plaguing people around the world and more prevalently children who are obesely over-weight. 

Word of Mouth in Advertising:

TIP! If you are not sure whether or not an online store is reliable, contact their customer service. Ask a few questions about the products, the payment method and the shipping.


BustedTees relied on traditional advertising by placing ads onto CollegeHumor's site. Considering BustedTees and CollegeHumor shared the same audience and similar content, this move worked tremendously well.

In addition to using creative advertising these companies offer the extra attention in customer support through their product fulfilment by advertising If it (t-shirts) doesn't fit they would offer free exchanges for all customers, so there will not be any additional cost for any exchanges being made; this providing easy and fast service.

Word of Mouth is a Statement

TIP! Try to make online purchases only with companies you are already familiar with. Chances are, a store you go to on a regular basis probably has a safe website.

Finally, while clothes make you appear interesting, your personality is what really draws people in. Flirting gently, being an all-around pleasant guy and being helpful around women is a Cool-like way to be while being cool, tough and not sensitive is a James Dean-like approach to hanging around with the guys. Shrug off the rudeness of others. It's not worth your while to chase compliments or confirm people's nastiness by stooping to their level.

Again, making a statement and staying with simplicity, the more common choices for wearers included white t-shirts: It never hurts to have a number of these in the wardrobe, freshly laundered and pressed, ready for wearing. The white tee is very versatile too – it looks good under jackets (especially the leather kind) and by itself. And muscle cut polo shirts, obviously, to show off the muscle work and generally look rebellious and cool.

Regardless of words from mouths, one should choose products that one would enjoy.
