Christmas is celebrated all over the world and there are many exciting things that everyone is anticipating here, the Filipino Christmas rush. We’re fast approaching the end of the year, and there are a number of things that business owners have to stay on top to best manage their businesses.
Now is the perfect time to map out your preparations in order to drive the most revenue for your business. If you’re a retailer, but not quite sure how to get your store ready, here’s 7 things to get you going!
1. Set Your Holiday Store Hours
The first step is to look at and familiarize yourself with the holidays coming up and decide which ones are important for your business and to your customers. The most effective mall hours done in the Philippine setting usually starts late in the morning and ends at latest eleven in the evening.
It’s also smart to study what the competition is doing because some store owners began their holiday sales campaigns in the early days of October! Speaking of the Christmas rush, many people are more into work and are more likely to have heavier work schedules allowing them to spend time shopping later than the usual.
2. Hire More Part Time Staff and Train Them
If you’re one of the many businesses looking to hire seasonal employees in the next few weeks, it’s high time that you start looking, selecting and training people now. Remember, you’re competing with a lot of other stores for talent these days, so the sooner you get started, the better.
With the use of multiple training tactics and tools, you can easily facilitate learning and help your staff pick up and retain information and skills more effectively.
If you can possibly offer new opportunities for full-time employment at your business, be sure to let your fill-ins know. This could encourage them to be more invested in your company.
