Forever New had a digital focus Pre-Covid also with over 15% of the revenue coming from e-commerce and a strong digital first CRM program. That upfront effort made it relatively easier for Forever New to identify the right customers to target to push sales during the lockdown. This showcases that a brand needs to prepare for the winds in time of calm to succeed even during a crisis.

Once the Covid-19 lockdown started sales for all fashion brands moved from the physical stores to e-commerce. Then all the focus was shifted to e-commerce to generate the maximum revenue.
While that shift was hard for most brands (including Forever New), 3 things enabled Forever New to maximize revenue from that shift toe-commerce:
1. Their e-commerce sales were already greater than 15%. That meant thebusiness processes were ready to handle the e-commerce sales.
2. The marketing team was aligned to generate revenue for the brand, either offline or online. So there were a lot of learnings from running campaigns to generate e-commerce sales from store customers.
3. A 360 degree customer view was already prepared using Xeno’s CDP, allowing Forever New to visualise each customer’s behaviour across e-commerce & physical stores.
