Stylish & affordable fashion with Proud Poppy Clothing

Published

on

Proud Poppy Clothing was launched in August 2019 when store owner Tara McKeon finally made the decision to just “go for it” after months of questioning whether the “dream” was even possible to make a reality.

An emergency nurse by trade, McKeon was coming to the end of her two-year maternity leave after the birth of her son Brodie, so it was a now or never moment. A decision had to be made. And the decision was that life was too short not to follow your dreams!

Pregnancy and life in general had seen her gain over 60kgs weighing around the 140kg mark, squeezing into size 22s and just feeling lost and sad. The cycle of not being able to find beautiful and affordable clothing as my body changed, whatever the cause pushed her more and more into her shell. Not being able to shop in “regular” stores. Avoiding people from her past like the plague. Missing special occasions simply because there was nothing nice to wear that fit. Tara was miserable.

Speaking to some of her petite friends it struck a chord that her size 6 friends were surprisingly in the same position – except being forced to shop in the children’s section. It became so clear that a store like Proud Poppy Clothing is exactly what the women of the world needed. An affordable and stylish fashion store that was for ALL women. A store that was welcoming, inclusive and most importantly somewhere that we could all shop together.

Originally the idea for Proud Poppy Clothing was an online store – the dream of sending out a few orders weekly. But it grew. And fast! There is now have a boutique store in Campbellfield, Victoria, a second store in Doreen on the way and post dozens of orders out weekly worldwide!

This is only the just at the start of her journey and are so excited to grow the range and what we can offer women all over the world. Something we never could have done without your love and support.

We have a beautiful following of over 65k of like-minded, positive women who we refer to as our family. Because that’s exactly how it feels. We support each other through all walks of life and we look dahm good while doing it!

Improving digital experience is everything

Published

on

All eyes are now on businesses as they navigate the online world.

Organisations are trying to optimise their website, social media and mobile applications to capture customers, and provide a flawless digital experience.

But, how can this be done?

“There is a real thirst for leveraging the data of customer behaviour,” Optimizely‘s Paul North revealed to Ticker News. “This is all a part of the customer digital experience online.”

North also spoke about the importance of the company’s ‘data core service’ – a free service for clients, to better understand customers and how it can help businesses to grow.

“We are getting queries from our customers, about what their customers are doing online,” he adds. “every touchpoint you ave with a customer is a chance to get to know them better.

“You also get the chance to understand them, the content they are interested in, and to enrich their experience.”

North also went on to detail why a personalised aspect is crucial in a fast-paced world.

“Everyone in the digital space talks about the three-second flicker,” he continues. “If you don’t have the engagement in real-time, you lose them to another digital property.

“This could be your competitor, or another service, or another avenue of interest that the end user may have.

“Our aim is to help organisations contextualise customer experiences in real-time using Artificial Intelligence and a data bank built up, and by doing this, the experience become relevant and contextualised, keeping people engaged with your brand.”

The way people train and take care of their body has significantly changed over the years, with bodyweight calisthenics becoming a popular choice for many.

Maximum Potential Calisthenics‘ Nathan Leith says there has been a boom over the past 12-24 months in the industry.

“There has been a decrease over the past decade of people wanting to go to the gym,” Leith points out on Ticker News. “They don’t want to build that huge, massive physique.

“A structural shift towards functional training has been seen.

“People want to stay mobile, build strength and learn a few more skills.”

Leith argues there are benefits for people to get into Calisthenics, as it appeals to anyone.

“There is no need for weights, or a gym,” he highlights. “It can be done outside and people seem to love it.”

“Anybody is able to do it, especially if people are able to do the moves and then improve on it.”

Leith also points out form and safety are paramount when doing the exercises, which is why they keep their class sizes small.

“People want to get their form and detail correct,” Leith adds. “Before anyone signs up, we will assess how people perform certain actions. and history.”
