Suomalaiset naiset veivät neulomolaisten sydämet

Neulomo pyysi mittoja ja vartalokuvia. Mitä he saivat? Yhteensä 825 mielenkiintoista, hämmästyttävän rohkeaa mallihakemusta, täynnä upeita ja yllättäviä tarinoita, jotka nostattivat niin naurun kuin liikutuksen kyyneleitä silmiin. Kiitos teille kaikille! Tämä haku ei jää tähän. Kun Nokian Neulomon myyntijohtaja Marika Snellman lisäsi Facebook-päivityksen mallihausta, hän kuvitteli saavansa reilut kymmenkunta hakemusta. Seuraavien päivien aikana sähköpostiin kuitenkin […]

Mikä ihmeen ennakkomyynti?

Ennakkomyynti on herättänyt jonkin verran kyselyjä, ja koska aiomme käyttää tätä toimintamallia tuotannossa jatkossakin, päätimme avata ennakkomyynnin toimintaperiaatteita!   MITEN ENNAKKOMYYNTI TOIMII? Ennakkomyynnillä pyritään varmistamaan se, että kaikki halukkaat saavat tuotteen. Tässä on myös suurin ero perinteiseen tuotantoon nähden: perinteisen tuotannon haasteena voi olla, että kysyntää on enemmän kuin tuotteita on valmistettu. Ennakkomyyntituotteita valmistetaan siis tilausten […]
