Focus Your PROFITABLE Growth with the Retail STRATA:G® Wheel
In The ROI's view, the key to survival in retail is not profitable lines of merchandise, nor even profitable stores.
Instead, those retailers who will survive and thrive will be those who have the most profitable customers!
The Four (Only!) Ways Retail Businesses Grow
Before you get too far down the road in planning another store, adding new merchandise lines, or some other expansion, you first must decide on your fundamental growth strategy.
Why? Because your growth strategy and your tactics must align.
Are your profits hiding in plain sight?
The typical accounting package lists expenses in alphabetical order. From Advertising, to Auto Expenses, then Bank Charges, and so on. Lines and lines of separate expense items, all detailed to the penny. How useful is that?!
Is this designed to inform? Or, to confuse and confound? No wonder few retailers will spend much "quality time" with their financial statements.
And even more for ROI Members!
