    Invisiblely, around this fast-rising industry, a larger “live broadcast economy” is taking shape. It is understood that a series of new types of jobs created by the light of the wind have driven about 4 million jobs this year, including people with disabilities. And there have been more than 600 first-line e-commerce anchor incubation companies that have grown up on the Taobao live broadcast platform, and Hangzhou Jiubao has also become a “professional anchor camp”.

    But professional anchor talents are still scarce, and the positions of assistants, operations, investment promotion, and quality control are even more scarce. “Today we talk about the ability of live streaming and digitalization. This is also a challenge, so we will incubate these industries. Xuan De said.

    So, Taobao Live will launch a 10 billion support plan in the future to support Taobao Live. Except for the talent cultivation standard industry, a larger amount of investment will be used for technology upgrades, based on the combination of future video technology and 5G technology to make the experience more futuristic. “The technical system behind live broadcast is very complicated,” Xuande said, in addition to investing more effort into platform governance to protect consumer rights, the last indispensable is to convert more traffic into Taobao live broadcast.

    Lululemon ’s secret to obtain ultra-high pricing power is worth learning from all emerging brands. When the consumption level of a country / region rises, this brand with warm vitality will have good upside potential. Over the past 3 years, lululemon is one of the stories that has grown rapidly in the retail industry because it has created the “athletica” trend (sports and leisure).

    High-viability community marketing, so lululemon did not lose much market share during product problems and management turmoil. After 2016, it improved its performance through supply chain changes, regained its foothold, and It broke out in 2018. After a high base in the North American market, lululemon began to move into multiple categories, develop menswear and personal care, and sought to increase overseas.

    But the biggest challenge in front of lululemon is that the men’s sports market is already full of players, from Nike, Adidas to Under Armour, as well as outdoor brands such as Archaeopteryx, Columbia, North Face. Lululemon’s brand positioning is still feminine. As can be seen from the name Lulu Lemon, this is very different from UA, a muscle-related brand, and lululemon’s pricing is significantly higher than competitors, which may limit the upward space. .
