LAS VEGAS, June 17, 2020 /PR Newswire/ -- On the heels of state lockdowns and economic uncertainty due to COVID19, entrepreneurial Americans, with the lingering taste of luxury goods still in their mouths but a newfound practicality for all things financial now on their minds, have never been more in tune with dabbling in the resale market, both as buyers and sellers. And no one is more seasoned in the luxury secondary market space than MARQUE, the country's largest wholesaler of authentic luxury goods that they have sourced from around the world.
Today MARQUE announced the launch of Marque Mentor, a fee-based online platform that provides to members direct insider access on how to launch and grow a luxury resale business. Created and managed by successful industry professionals, the platform teaches all the ins and outs of brands and products, authentication, marketing, and fulfillment. Membership also empowers subscribers with access to MARQUE's wholesale program and dropshipping services. Most of all, the platform connects members with industry professionals and influencers via webinars, one-on-one virtual office hours, and other content to help members grow their businesses, whether the member is just starting out or looking to scale.
The $24B luxury resale market, growing at a faster pace than the primary luxury market, appears to be on track both to survive economic recessions and to feed into consumer trends for sustainability and a more circular economy. While buyers will always be fickle, business remains surefooted for sellers who understand true value in long-lasting luxury labels and can parlay the resale of such goods into a viable business.
MARQUE Founder and President Quentin Caruana said, "As we continue to adjust to a new normal in life, many people have resorted to adjusting and balancing their work and home life, so having a profitable business that can be flexible is ideal. The Marque Mentor program was developed so that we may educate the membership base on how to launch and succeed in the luxury resale business by combining and sharing the experience of industry professionals."
Marque Mentor is the brainchild of Caruana and Deanna Thompson, author of The Beginners Guide to Luxury Handbags and the creator of Closet Full of Cash, the first and only blog dedicated to the luxury resale industry. "The lack of education coupled with the abundance of misinformation online makes it an uphill battle when trying to launch a resale business. We have connected with the best of the best on Marque Mentor to help guide and teach you everything you will need to be successful from building a website, bringing in product, authentication and more. Having access to industry professionals would have been a dream come true when I started my businesses," said Thompson.
With technology at the fingertips of a new budding group of entrepreneurs who have now adjusted to the new normal of working at home or even from a smart phone, Marque Mentor will lead the way to providing them with a virtual support system to help them grow their luxury resale businesses.
