In a recent post on July 1, 2009, Bebe Bella Designs has been privileged to be featured in a blog on the CuteKid’s website. Throughout this article, they have included a variety of the outfits and accessories that have been very popular with the public. Our clothes are made with simple elegance in mind and are always very fashion forward. We are excited to see that others have been enjoying the products as much as we have and are looking forward to making more comfortable clothes for babies and parents alike.

Keeping your head, hands, feet and neck warm during the cold winter, especially here in Minnesota, is something we all know is imperative to enjoying the long winter months. Trying to take an infant or toddler out in the middle of winter can be a challenge, but if you have the right gear and comfortable accessories, it can be a great time. With Bebe Bella’s soft and warm hats, mittens, scarves and booties, we can make those winter months bearable.

Melissa Sachse, founder, entrepreneur, and mother, understands how important it is to surround your child with the most comfortable and affordable clothing possible. As we all know, putting a child in uncomfortable, scratchy outfit can lead to a miserable day for child and parent. Melissa has created a line of clothing and accessories that will please the child’s senses and still give the parent’s stylish clothing for the families on the go.

A few weeks ago I wrote about key factors that influence why sales reps choose to represent your brand.

Those factors include:
• Good marketing; Branding
• Exclusivity of product
• Appropriate price points
• Focus
• “It” factor

Those points focus on your product. Some other key points that influence why a rep might work with you, or might continue to work with you, focus on, well… you.

The Rep Relationship

I often receive phone calls from people in the kid’s industry. Usually from recruiters, sales managers, entrepreneurs or moms soliciting advice and ostensibly, building their network. These callers speed through the “niceties” portion of the call and, after their lightning-fast self-introduction, I often don’t know the name of who’s calling me, or why they’re calling.

Over the last decade or so, I have noticed a very discernible pattern. It seems that our primary target demographic, moms, has embraced technology with a fervor, becoming one of the most prolific and powerful groups on the Internet…yet those of us on the ‘commerce’ side, (retailers and vendors), have for the most part seriously lagged behind. Before we can move forward, we must understand where we’ve been, and why we were there.

I spent this past weekend with my family and while I intended to write a blog about networking, it never happened. Instead, as the weekend progressed, I thought a lot about the funny things my family says that have turned into our own personal catch phrases. I thought I’d share some of our family favorites with you today.

Mom: “I’m a little chilly.” (usually said when everyone else is sweating bullets)

Dad: “What?” (whenever anyone tells a joke related to being hard of hearing, which he is)

Before I start this blog, I want to note that I will be moving my weekly blog to this location on the Giggle Guide. Being involved with social media since 2003, I can honestly say that it is about time that a platform like The Giggle Guide has finally come to be. I urge everyone involved in the various related trades and industries to jump in with both feet and get involved!

We send special baskets full of new product to the media every spring, and we’re already seeing spectacular results! Baby Couture’s new issue is featuring no less than four of our items – one pair of eco-friendly leather sandals from Pedoodles®, one bath toy from Elegant Baby®, and one headband and one hairclip from No Slippy Hair Clippy®. Check it out – Tori Spelling is on the cover.

Lately I get calls almost daily asking me to rep a line. Most often, my answer is “No Thanks,” followed by a genuine “Good Luck!” This response leaves a lot of frustrated designer/manufacturers out there who often hang up the phone maybe feeling a little bitter at yet another refusal.

Almost every Web site I visit has an About Us page. It’s a personal touch on a website and one that I visit on almost every site I browse. What most small business owners or marketing directors forget when they create this page is that this page is for a specific, targeted audience. The About Us page is a concise summary for your brand, explaining why you felt compelled to start a business, why your products should get a piece of a consumer’s disposable income and why you should be trusted to deliver on your promise.
