A short post from me after coming across this retail gazette post on an Amazon forum entitled "Quiet or Technical Issues?" (Azon login required for sellers).
If you trade online and have noticed a severe drop in sales you're not alone.
According to Retail Gazette sales decreased by 1.3% in September and this was the worst decrease since records began.
The BRC advised that Brexit is to blame with consumers gloomy about making purchasing decisions.
Seller forums on Amazon also tell a story with many sellers reporting up to 60% down on this time last year. For many there is no sign of the ramping up of sales for Christmas usually experienced at this time of year.
In fact sales growth has once again fallen into the red.
So what can you do if you are experiencing a lull in sales on Amazon, Ebay and your own websites?
Look at your costs carefully. What can you make an instant daily saving on.
I'm sure there are many things but one I'm personally bound to mention is the massive saving that my brands have made on shipping.
By using the Tracado system to eradicate using Recorded Delivery for the most part I have seen around a 95% saving on what I might otherwise be spending...
...whilst at the same time actually increasing the perception of service by our customers.
