Tackling Bulky Goods Shipping – Mike Williams

I don’t know about you but personally, I always struggle when it comes to shipping big items. I know so many of my clients have issues with things just as simple as decent sized light fixtures because the general points system or general queries can’t actually guarantee that they’re going to get there in one piece or even take them in the first place. I know here in Australia, Australia Post won’t do anything more than a meter. So that’s your three feet. So if you’ve got a really tall lampshade that doesn’t come down into pieces you’re kind of screwed when it comes to getting it to your customer. So I brought along Mike Williams from you ship to talk about how we can get those big pieces of inventory to our customers in a really quick way and in a way that they’re going to arrive safely.

How To Choose Which Products To Promote During the Holidays

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfxlE3iP4CI&feature=emb_title When it comes to the holidays, there is no better time to maximise your sales and fill up your bank account. A large number of retailers do the majority of their trade during the holiday season, and for some stores, up to 70% of revenue is generated during this time. Whether the holidays are your lifeblood, or they just provide a nice little boost, making sure that you secure every possible sale is a must. So let’s talk about how you can choose the right products, in order to maximise those sales. When it comes to choosing a product to promote, my top 4 go-to categories are: A High volume/high turnover product If a product already turns over quickly and it can be expected that this has the capacity increase then this is where I love to start Why? The product has already been tested by your market, and they clearly love it. Creating a promotion around a high volume product should focus on adding benefit, through bundling and complimentary product upsells. You shouldn’t need to discount a product that already sells well. A High margin product The holy grail of retail is a product with a high margin.
