Haroon Hussain is consulting with Ego.co.uk as head of development

Ego is an online eCommerce Instagram brand that has gained 1.2 million Instagram followers in its first two years of trading. We hear how Ego was able to effectively scale during this surge in business:

“Data definitely guides all our decisions, but I think especially in the fashion space, you need some kind of gut approach to making decisions. At the end of the day, it’s all about being fast-paced, if you completely rely on data you’re going to be digging mountains of data and the dangerous thing about data is – it can be something that’s in the eye of the beholder, they’ll see the answer they want to see in data.”

Haroon explains the importance of combining technology with marketing to create exponential growth in eCommerce. In the fast fashion industry – good marketing and a strong product are key, but understanding the technology of eCommerce and using the aid of consultants is imperative for brand growth.
