2022 AVN Best Enhancement Manufacturer Wicked Sensual Care is shining its Retail Employee Spotlight on Alexis E. of Newman, Georgia’s Starship Enterprises. Located at 029 GA-34, this popular retailer currently has over 115 4.6 out of 5-star reviews on Google.
Whether it is to recognize the inspiring track record of a hardworking sales associate or to salute the exemplary contributions of an educator or gifted customer service specialist, each month a new superstar of the pleasure products space is interviewed for the Wicked Sensual Care newsletter.
A creative free spirit, Alexis was initially drawn to the inclusive atmosphere Starship Enterprises provided. ”I got into adult retail for the environment. I was able to be myself, to express myself freely. I felt comfortable being open to my peers and trying my best to help others feel the same way. I love helping customers realize that the things we do are normal and nothing to be ashamed of.”
“My specialty is showing people products they didn’t even know existed,” she continues. “I love showing them new lubes and sensation gels, things they never would have chosen for themselves or considered before. Opening those doors for them is super rewarding. It makes my customers, and myself, feel like they are getting the most out of their time in the store – and in the bedroom.”
Alexis doesn’t hesitate when asked about her favorite part of the job. “The best thing about my job is being able to educate customers on how to be safe and healthy during their intimate times. When you take the time to educate your customers, not only does it make them feel more comfortable and willing to communicate their needs to you, but it gives you a sense of purpose and makes me, in particular, feel like I am doing something worthwhile.”
Those working in the retail sector of the pleasure products space are invited to nominate employees and colleagues who continuously exceed expectations and deserve recognition for their ability to position themselves as product and industry experts. A superstar may be nominated by sending their name, store name, location/city, store social media handles, and a brief paragraph about why they deserve to be a superstar (photograph optional) to [email protected] Superstars may also self-nominate. Like Alexis, the next
Retail Superstar will be profiled in Wicked Sensual Care’s monthly newsletter.
“Knowledge is power and for our retailer partners, thorough product knowledge is key,” observes Wicked Sensual Care Sales Director Jennifer Brice. “It is difficult to effectively sell to a customer if you can’t show how a particular product will address their individual needs. An employee like Alexis knows it is important that customers understand the value of the product, how the product should and can be used, and what products work well together. Thank you for all your hard work, Alexis, we appreciate you!”
