LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CommentSold, a leading live video commerce platform, today announced a new customer milestone: Whiskey Skies, a women's fashion retailer, has reached over $10 million in lifetime live selling GMV on the CommentSold platform, utilizing multi-casting live selling capabilities to drive sales across social channels, owned website and app. The achievement comes as the enthusiasm for live selling in the fashion industry is growing, with apparel and fashion dominating as the most-watched category in live commerce programming.
Founded by Joanne Vitale in 2016, Whiskey Skies was built on a vision to make trendy clothing, home decor, and accessories accessible and affordable for women of all shapes and sizes. Starting small, Whiskey Skies aimed to provide quality pieces while staying true to its core mission. By focusing on sustainable growth strategies, Vitale credits her company’s success to emphasizing slow and steady progress, rather than chasing fleeting trends.
With CommentSold's state-of-the-art warehouse management tools and advanced shipping and fulfillment capabilities, Whiskey Skies has seen unprecedented growth; the business has scaled from an operation in Vitale’s home to a 7,000 sq.ft. warehouse. “We couldn't be happier with our partnership with CommentSold. They've helped us take our business to the next level, with the ability to efficiently manage our warehouse operations and fulfill orders quickly and accurately,” said Vitale.
The CommentSold app has also had a tremendous impact on Whiskey Skies’ success. The combination of a user-friendly app with a private sales channel, along with seamless integration with social media channels, has helped to cultivate the brand’s highly-engaged community of women. Live selling with social integration has proven an efficient customer acquisition channel, as 45% of its first time customers have come from a single social media platform.
"At CommentSold, we're constantly looking for ways to help retailers stay ahead in the fast-paced world of e-commerce. Our direct integration with social media channels is a game-changer for brands looking to reach a wider audience and capitalize on the latest trends. We're excited to see our customers, like Whiskey Skies, experience rapid growth and success through social media platforms," said Gautam Goswami, CEO at CommentSold.
