Update Your Home Decor Business
Home Decor retailers pay attention to trends in the industry because customers often want to see items in the store that they have seen online. Most consumers today will have spent time watching home improvement shows and exploring social media for ideas before they ever step foot in a brick & mortar establishment.
If your business does not have any type of online presence or your staff is ignorant about the products they sell or your sales floor hasn’t changed much over time — you need to update your home decor business.
Be Online Without Being Overwhelmed
With ChainDrive, adding an online channel to your business does not require adding a warehouse full of replicate inventory just in case someone buys something. Inventory data is integrated so an online order can be taken from the same inventory that is in the store and instantly updated at POS.
Every business today is expected to have a website. If you aren’t ready to sell from that site, Web Marketplace integration lets you sell on third-party sites easily. If you don’t have staff that can keep the site updated, hire a professional virtual assistant for a few hours a week to get started. Your customers are online, so you need to online. But your online presence needs to be a priority or that online presence will make your business look out of date.
Reward Staff For Expertise
Many home decor items are investments that people make after much thought. Sales staff that know about style, pattern, color, and material can validate the shopper’s research. Arming your staff with mobile devices that access inventory details equip them to answer questions correctly.
It’s important to accurately divide commissions among multiple employees within the same transaction. That makes sure that staff is appropriately rewarded for their efforts.
Lighten Up Your Sales Floor
Does your sales floor reflect the current trend in home decor? Is it well-lit, so people can see colors accurately? Does it feel spacious and clean? Take some pictures of the space and look at them critically. Often a photograph will reveal clutter and needless items that can go.
Other clutter items for retailers are needless management processes. If your software doesn’t integrate every detail of your unique business and enable analyzation of your own historical and real-time data, you can’t be sure that your updates are optimal. ChainDrive for Home Decor Retailers is designed to keep your business current and profitable.
