The challenge


Established in 2004, Bariano quickly captured the hearts of fashion enthusiasts with its exquisite range of eveningwear and occasion dresses. With a commitment to delivering cutting-edge designs, quality craftsmanship, and personalized customer experiences, the brand swiftly gained recognition both locally and internationally. In the fast-paced world of fashion, staying ahead of the curve requires more than just an eye for design; it demands an exceptional understanding of digital innovation and consumer behavior. Bariano, an iconic Australian fashion brand, has managed to effortlessly blend contemporary style with technological sophistication, earning them a prominent position in the highly competitive industry.


As the digital landscape began to revolutionize the way businesses operate, Bariano recognized the need to evolve its strategies and embrace technological advancements to continue thriving in the market. Acknowledging that online retail had become a crucial aspect of the industry, the company embarked on a journey to transform its traditional brick-and-mortar model into an omnichannel fashion powerhouse.


To navigate the intricacies of digital marketing successfully, Bariano sought the expertise of a specialized marketing agency, JRNY Digital. Recognizing the agency's proven track record in empowering brands to thrive in the online landscape, Bariano entered into a strategic partnership that would become a defining moment in their journey towards digital expansion.


Join us as we embark on an immersive journey through Bariano's digital transformation, revealing the secrets behind its success and the lessons it imparts for fashion businesses aspiring to thrive in the dynamic and ever-evolving world of fashion retail.


Key problems

  1. ROI Justification from Marketing Efforts: Bariano struggled with effectively measuring and justifying the return on investment (ROI) from their marketing initiatives. This lack of clarity made it challenging for the company to determine which marketing channels or campaigns were driving tangible business results and which were not.

  2. Limited Understanding of Marketing Impact: Prior to partnering with JRNY Digital, Bariano faced difficulties in comprehending the true impact of their previous marketing spend. The absence of robust analytics and data-driven insights hindered their ability to gauge the effectiveness of their marketing efforts and assess whether they were truly generating revenue or simply incurring expenses.

  3. Lack of Scalability in Online Revenue: As the company aimed to expand its online presence, they encountered obstacles in effectively scaling their online revenue. Without a clear and methodical strategy for growth, Bariano struggled to tap into the full potential of the digital market and capitalize on the increasing trend of online shopping.

  4. Inadequate Digital Marketing Expertise: Bariano's in-house team lacked the specialized expertise required to navigate the complexities of digital marketing successfully. This limited their ability to capitalize on emerging opportunities, optimize campaigns, and leverage digital channels effectively to engage with their target audience.

  5. Fragmented Marketing Approach: The absence of a cohesive marketing strategy meant that Bariano's marketing efforts were often fragmented and lacking synergy. The company needed a unified approach that integrated various marketing channels and initiatives to drive consistent and meaningful results.

  6. Understanding Customer Behavior: Bariano needed better insights into customer behaviour, preferences, and purchasing patterns in the digital realm. This understanding was critical to craft personalized and relevant marketing campaigns that resonated with their audience and fostered lasting customer relationships.

  7. Competing in a Saturated Market: The fashion industry is highly competitive, and Bariano faced the challenge of standing out amidst numerous other brands vying for attention. They needed to find unique and innovative ways to differentiate themselves and capture the attention of their target market.

  8. Optimizing Online User Experience: Enhancing the online user experience was a priority for Bariano. They needed to ensure that their website was user-friendly, visually appealing, and provided a seamless shopping journey to increase conversions and customer satisfaction.

Addressing these key problems would prove instrumental in helping Bariano leverage digital marketing to its full potential and achieve significant growth in their online revenue.
