Hot Spot Community Ignites Stripes' Brand Launch with Advocacy, Trial and Direct Consumer Connections

Stripes, a fast-growing holistic menopause solutions brand founded by actress Naomi Watts, aims to empower women to embrace midlife and to take away the stigma, shame, and anxiety of experiencing menopause. To fuel awareness, trial, and advocacy for the brand’s launch and beyond, Stripes created the Hot Spot community as a dedicated space for consumers to connect with the brand and find support in navigating their midlife journey.

Here is what they say…

“Naomi [Watts] wanted to disrupt in the market. She thought about how to create a brand where women will feel confident to talk about menopause, and create and empower a community to talk about it. And that’s what we did. We co-created Stripes from the beginning and the brand is doing really well today.”
