Becca Brown is such an enthusiast about her brand and products that you see why Solemates are a girl’s best friend.
Who’d a thunk that heel caps would be such a big thing right? We’ve all been to grass party events, and weddings where your heel just sinks down and you know your shoes are ruined…. or need an emergency trip to the doctor.
Becca and her co-founder Monica had the same experience over and over until they had their ah-ha moment…..and grass events were never the same again!
Tune in and listen as we chat about how they started at night and on the weekends, got on Shark Tank, didn’t take the deal, pursued sales on their own, are now in over 10,000 stores and still do the sales themselves. Whew!
Like many engaged entrepreneurs, especially Trina Turk, Becca talks about how important customer service is and how on top of it they are all the time. They pursue PR, celebrities and most of all sales.
Becca Brown & Monica Ferguson are the Cofounders of Solemates, a line of footwear solutions. Known for the flagship product, a patented heel cap that prevents high heels from sinking into grass and getting stuck in cracks, Solemates creates products to make you more comfortable in your shoes.
From blister prevention to odor elimination to comfort, Solemates has a solution for every shoe frustration. Solemates are available in CVS, DSW, David’s Bridal, as well as on Amazon and the company website (www.thesolemates.com).
