Next, I was interviewed by The Examiner author A. Michelle Blakeley about, “20 Real and Effective Ways to Market Your Online Business, Offline” and she included a suggestion I gave on behalf of VULGAR CITIZEN:
Pop-up shops can provide great press and presence
I arrange pop-up boutiques all over Southern California with plans to execute more outside of the state. Due to my business being based online, you are robbed of the in-person consumer interaction that brick and mortar stores often take for granted. Fortunately, these pop-up boutiques have been ridiculously valuable to the growth of my business. Consumers are able to speak directly to me about why this boutique is unique and feel/see/touch our products in order to recognize their high quality. Had I not made the decision to take my boutique on the road, I am not all that sure we would have survived simply because not enough of the right people were aware that VULGAR CITIZEN existed yet. Good old fashion word-of-mouth from the in-store events does a lot of the promotional work for me. Vel Jones, @vulgarcitizen

Thrilled that with this latest pop up opportunity and article, one of the ways that VULGAR CITIZEN markets itself can provide assistance to other companies.
