With USD 500 thousand generated, the Brazilian Footwear renews its partnership with Joor

The participation of 17 Brazilian brands in the digital platform Joor through a project carried out within the Brazilian Footwear generated around USD 500 thousand in direct sales.  The success made the footwear exports promotion program set up enrollments for a second edition. The program is developed by the Brazilian Footwear Industries Association (Abicalçados) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).  

Named “BrazilianFootwear.com powered by Joor,” the project follows the digitization trend observed in the market. Abicalçados' Trade Promotion Analyst, Ruísa Scheffel, points out that Joor, the fastest-growing B2B fashion platform in the world, enables direct sales to major international players, through the most innovative sales management tools in the market. "The platform allows companies to digitize their entire sales process with the customers, increasing business possibilities in an entirely digital way," she assesses, also emphasizing that companies that join the second edition of the project will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive digital event during Joor Passport, which will be held between August and September.  

The brand Paula Torres, which has been exporting for two years, sees the platform as a way to conduct deals and promote the brand. The company's director, Viviane Fabrício, highlights that the platform gave rise to negotiations that evolved with buyers from the United States, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. "In addition to drumming up business, the platform helps to promote the company, which is relatively young in terms of exports,” she assesses. According to Fabrício, the brand is proactive in the platform, constantly updating and registering new contacts.  Paula Torres is one of the brands that renewed its participation in the second edition of the project. 

Pegada's International Business Manager, Alex Fernando Klein Engelmann, says that the brand attracted new customers, especially from markets in the United States, Canadá, Australia, Italy, and Spain.  “Digital events, such as the platform, provide opportunities for us to work more agilely in the international market, and with lower costs," he assesses, noting that Pegada will participate in the second edition of the project.
