To help small businesses take over the fashion industry!
We imagine a future where wasteful, excess inventory is a thing of the past, and brands are stocked with profitable, sustainably-made products that consumers actually want.
OUR CORE VALUES
Merchandise management is HARD, but we make it easier by providing merchandising consulting, coaching, tools, and resources for boutique owners. We take great care to live up to our promises on deadlines, deliverables, and results for our clients. We’re meticulous, calculated, and treat every project as if our own business were on the line. We are a small business too, and we celebrate wins – and overcome challenges – together!
We believe that uniqueness is the key to driving innovation, inspiration, and success, and are committed to creating a culture of belonging, where everyone is welcomed, respected, and valued. Equality, diversity, equity, access, and inclusion across race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, orientation, identity, ability, and experience are vital to that commitment. We hold ourselves accountable by identifying and eliminating barriers or prejudices from our business practices, and by enforcing policies like Equal-Pay-for-Equal-Work, and Zero-Tolerance for discrimination.

MEET THE FOUNDERS
We are a pair of ecommerce junkies, with over 20 years of retail & ecommerce experience between us. In 2019, we were inspired to start FOMO agency because we discovered how many small fashion brands had no plan, no tools, no data access, no sales targets, and no idea how to launch their fashion businesses! Knowing that these elements are the foundation of a wildly successful online brand, we started servicing the businesses that need us most.
