After what started as an off-the-cuff idea (whilst studying a Bachelor of Business-Marketing at Melbourne’s RMIT University) to re-package tampons so that they’d stop rolling around in her handbag, her 'Moxie’ brand of purse-worthy women's personal care products are now a familiar sight at major retailers around Australia and also around the globe.

'She did it too' - Mia Klitsas

In today’s episode of 'She did it too' we chat with friend and fabulous entrepreneur Mia, founder of Moxie tampons.

Creating an iconic business common to many of our bathrooms, Mia’s brand goes beyond feminine hygiene products.

Starting at the young age of 21 Mia’s marketing mind and passion to bridge pain points in the market saw her create a globally recognisable brand.

Moxie stands for more than just a product, during her mission towards success Mia had the devastating realisation that what many of us see as an inconvenient product to buy is in fact a luxury for many living in developing countries.

With a heart motivated to make change Mia shares the story of how she uses her business as a platform for incredible initiatives.

Mia Klitsas - Moxie

Play

In this episode we chat with the co-founder of personal care and hygiene brand Moxie. You may recognise it as the brand of tampons in the cute, pink tin packaging that's on the shelves of major retailers in Australia and also around the globe. The brains behind the brand is Mia Klitsas, who was just 21 years old when she thought of repackaging tampons into a tin container so that they would finally stop getting lost in the bottom of her bag. Guys – stick with us, coz we think you’ll also get a lot from this chat too! Mia shares with us her story on transitioning from working at one of the largest tobacco companies in the world to doing her own thing, how she lost half a million dollars worth of stock in the UK, and about her passion for social entrepreneurship – driving an initiative that provides women around the world with access to clean sanitary products. There’s so much to love about her, and the thing we admired about her the most is that she’s tenacious, she’s comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable by breaking down taboos, and she sends a very clear message that you can do good business as well as do good in the world.

How to turn a grudge purchase in to a purchase women love to make with Moxie’s Mia Klitsas | #413

Play

Imagine selling a product that half the world needs. Once they start buying it, they can’t stop, but have to keep on buying it … for decades. It’s taxed unncessarily. You can’t outright advertise it. And the market is dominated by global brands. How’s that for a business and marketing challenge?! It’s a challenge that today’s guest, Mia Klitsas, of feminine hygiene brand Moxie has to take on every day. Join me as she explains exactly how she’s done it, and the wins and losses she’s had along the way. Plus I reward a couple more listeners who share their marketing insights in the Monster Prize Draw.

“We’ve learned how to compete on brand – it’s the one thing that, if done right, can’t easily be replicated or taken away from you.” - Mia Klitsas, Moxie

There’s loads more tips and insights just like this that will help you build that beautiful business of yours into the empire it deserves to be. Hit the PLAY button above to listen now, or subscribe free to hear the full interview.

If you have questions about how to build a strong brand in a crowded marketplace then you’ll get your answers in this interview, plus Mia and I discuss many other business and marketing related topics:

  • Where’d the idea from Moxie come from?
  • How’d you get it to market?
  • Why the name Moxie?
  • Does she lobby government over the Tampon Tax?
  • How did she secure distribution in Australia’s largest supermarket and pharmacy chains?
  • What has she noticed about the change in consumer buying habits over the years?
  • What’s the most effective marketing Moxie does?
  • Why did she launch a subscription model?

Mia is a Melbourne based entrepreneur with a passion for social entrepreneurship and women's rights. Her Moxie brand of women's personal care products can be found at Woolworths, Coles, Priceline and Chemist Warehouse. And in an Australian first, Mia recently launched the cheekily named Moxie Box Club, a fully customisable online subscription service for women’s personal care products. What Mia has achieved is no mean feat given just how dominated the women’s personal care category is by huge global brands with extremely deep pockets.

Here’s what caught my attention from my chat with Moxie’s Mia Klitsas:

  1. I love how Mia said she’s a big fan of failure. As she said, when confronted with it, you should ask yourself “WHat’s the worst thing that could happen?”
  2. I couldn’t agree more with hyer view that we should all work harder at injecting massive amounts of personality in to your marketing messages. If you want to see how this is done then check out the video at the bottom of Moxie.com.au - it’s hilarious.
  3. I’m impressed that Mia is so active responding to her tribe on social media. I think the big lesson here is that business owners should get more involved at the coal face with their customers.

But the marketing gold doesn’t stop there, in this episode you’ll also discover:

  • Two more lucky listeners share what marketing is working for them, and in return I give them a prize or two
