As December whips by us in the midst of holidays sales, you may want to consider setting some time aside to get ready for the New Year. I’m optimistic that 2017 will be a great year, and if you share my optimism, why not get off to a good start? Take a look below at some helpful tips to make sure you start on the proper foot:
Make a listing of all inventory. It’s a good plan to compile a spreadsheet complete with costs and dates so nothing falls through the cracks. Collecting all this data also will help tremendously once tax season comes around.
Once all of your inventory is in one easy-to-view spreadsheet, take a look at which of the items you may have overlooked. Think about revising descriptions, retaking pictures, changing categories, titles or running a sale. If you aren’t quite able to do these items before the end of the year, create a game plan to assist you to accomplish this in the first quarter of the coming year.
There are several on-line groups which will support questions relating to your niche store whether or not it's a specific problem or an unidentifiable find. Be a part of one or more! Let’s face it, we love what we do however typically our families and friends might not respect the difficulties we tend to encounter on a routine day. Sharing in a web group may also relieve loneliness and stress. There are social media sharing groups specializing in marketing your listings. Not only is this type of networking fun, it’s effective.
