No not that C word....what on earth are you thinking? I’m talking about Christmas peops.
This signals the start of several things for me; firstly summer is officially over and Autumn is well and truly on its way. Personally I don’t mind Autumn even though I’m a summer fan (the hotter the better)....but Autumn has a some magic there that takes me back to my youth. Secondly, the shops will be changing their stocks soon and the decs will go up way too early as usual (or am I just getting grumpy?) and the TV ads will gear up for the festive season.
Anyway the point is this – the C word indicates a busy time for many businesses and for some an essential time to get things right! Planning is the key for both sales & services. I guess no-one wants to think about Christmas in September, but the truth is we have to.
Whether you are a shop, online sales, wholesaler or whatever your business, plan now, cream some profits and I have to say, I believe this year will be the best for a while as business in general appears to be on the up.
Here’s to that trend continuing eh.......and a happy pre C to you!
