Asos is an England-based online store specialising in fashion and cosmetic, founded in 2000 and headquartered in Camden Town, London. Asos offers a big lineup of brands, over 850 of them, as well as clothing and accessories under its' own brand, all shipped both to the United Kingdom and internationally, with multiple fulfilment centres in the UK, the United States and Europe.
ASOS was founded in 2000 by Nick Robertson, Andrew Regan, Deborah Thorpe and Quentin Griffiths. Originally, ASOS sold replicas of clothing from TV shows and movies - which is where the store got its' name for, as it originally was an acronym for "AsSeenOnScreen", with the tagline "Buy what you see on film and TV". However, as its' portfolio was expanding, both the tagline and the acronym's meaning became obsolete, leaving its' branding with just the acronym.
In 2004, ASOS started offering women's clothing under its' own label. From 2008 to 2010, ASOS used to offer kidswear, most of it also under its' own label, however, kidswear in general didn't turn a huge profit, which led ASOS to focus on its' core young adult fashion market.
ASOS started expanding its' borders, with international sites opening since 2010, in Germany, United States, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, China and, formerly, Russia. Around the same time, ASOS opened additional offices in the UK, the US and Australia.
With ASOS's main focus being online sales, they've also been focusing on online marketing, specifically for young adults. In 2009, ASOS claimed they had a 1:8 ratio between Twitter followers and Facebook fans respectively; complete with over 10% of sales done through email marketing. In 2012, the company launched #DIGIDATING, a game show series starring AJ Odudu, advertised as an Internet dating show with backstage drama involved. In 2017, they've launched an advertising campaign which encouraged Instagram users to post videos of ASOS products they've bought and feature them on Instagram Stories, under the hashtag #AsSeenOnMe. This particular campaign was a success, with 3 million people from the UK interacting with the advert video. ASOS also has a YouTube channel that features shows like Sneakers in 60 Seconds and How to Style, Face + Body, all hosted by famous fashion influencers.
The company also operates ASOS Marketplace, intended for "independent brands and vintage boutiques", of which there's over 900 from over 90 countries represented, most of them from the United Kingdom. ASOS have also partnered with Thrift+, a clothes reselling company, , that allows its' customers to provide second-hand clothing in exchange for Thrift+ credits, an ASOS voucher or a donation to charity. A similar charity-based partnership exists between ASOS and DPD.
For regular customers, ASOS offers its' yearly Premier membership, which claims to provide an all-year express, "hassle-free" delivery to its' subscribers.
