03:48 “The idea that you can give a physical presence to your brand and then have that bring them as an incentive onto the website is something I’d really like to challenge people to have a think about.”
08:48 “Picking out someone that is in a similar business model that is agile as you and has a strong social and digital presence can really pay off. And those partnerships are again something to put back in the hat.”
09:59 “It’s not just the function of the voucher. It’s about who you’re partnering with and how you can incorporate it. And further to that point, the really good partnerships actually co-brand the labels.”
12:10 “If you localize your subscription, you start off really well and can grow from there. You still have to go up against the big companies but you have a really good footing to begin with.”
13:53 “I think there are a few things they’re doing well. They’re making their customers the heroes. And they are doing that through storytelling. If I’m a subscriber to naked wines, I’m an angel. And through the storytelling, we’re helping the winegrowers.”
