Getting Ready for the New Year Part 3

If you missed Part 1 of Getting Ready for the New Year, you can find it here and Part 2 here.

There are 2 things I like to do at the end of each month/quarter/year.



1) I look over my data to see what it's telling me.
2) I like to spend some time thinking about what worked and what didn't work during that time frame.

Here are some questions to ask yourself.
☞ Are there products that are blossoming? Plan to make more like them.
☞ Are there products that haven't taken off? Look to see what's going on with the product. Maybe the description is off. Maybe it needs a new cover. Maybe it needs some marketing. Maybe it just isn't what people are looking for.
☞ Are there things you are doing that seem to be a waste of time? Try to streamline the process with a system or maybe forget it and try a different approach.
☞ What did you do that worked well? Plan to do more of that.
☞ Are you using a plan and your time wisely? Remember that being productive and being busy are 2 different things.
☞ What's bringing you the money? If it isn't in the path of revenue coming into your store, do you need to be doing it? Maybe something just isn't worth doing at this moment.

You don't need to do everything under the sun just because it looks like other sellers are. You need to see what your data tells you and find what you think will be best for your store at the moment you are in.
