Selling via Social Media

Venus Fashion

Updating the social feed for millennial growth

Venus was founded in a 1980s dorm room. And two decades later, it had grown into an international fashion company with a thriving mail-order business. But as more of their potential customers began to favor online retailers, they needed to catch up with the times. With a robust e-commerce platform already in place, Venus asked On Ideas to prove that social media could create new revenue platforms.

Social Media Makeover

Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter open a direct dialogue with customers. But they can also drive sales. Venus had social presence, but they lacked the right approach to realize its potential. We quickly executed a strategy shift with new, social-specific content, influencer campaigns, landing pages, and fresh editorial.

On Ideas partnered with several key social influencers around the country to target Venus to a younger audience. Afterward, we introduced their new plus-size line—something impossible in traditional media for the same budgets.
