Co-Founder and Chief Community Officer Peggy O’Flaherty advised Small Business Trends,”Mavely is a brand new way to store direct-to-consumer brands which make life a wee little more joyful. By focusing on brands which are female-founded and accountable, Mavely closely curates a shopping experience unlike any other.

When you share & invite friends to shop, you BOTH earn back together. The goal? Earn back on your influence, authentically recommend products, and drive the discovery of innovative brands.”

Instead of supplying yet another cash back or influencer platform, Mavely targets interactions that are genuine. Because the group is indeed passionate about assisting women owned and accountable brands, the neighborhood provides a whole lot of special features to help individuals return.

O’Flaherty states, “We allow for individuals who earn on their shopping and on their authentic sharing. We have a community of women who are giving that extra earning back to their favorite charity.”

Biggest Win

Getting some early media.

O’Flaherty describes, “Immediately 12 new investors came to the table, intrigued and eager to further our mission and product. Helping brands acquire customers at a lower cost, while helping women discover, cool new brands is our perfect marketplace.”

Biggest Risk

Changing the business version.

Originally, the company started with a multi level marketing supply business design. That contributed to plenty of early expansion. However, the group believed it did not match with their final assignment long term. So they chose to change their version, though it meant a few stagnation for a brief period.

O’Flaherty states, “The biggest risk was a short period where our growth plateaued and even fell back in user base. Then when we found a better financial model, brand message and product the growth turned into a positive direction.”

How They Got Their Name

After several alterations.

O’Flaherty describes, “Originally we were Million Moms, MyFavorite Things and now Mavely. Our community is filled with Maven, women who are knows for something unique in their circle of friends and followers.”
