Stop “desperation re-ordering” once and for all!

NOTE: Would you like an emailed QuickTIP like this in your inbox every Tuesday morning? If so, subscribe HERE for free!

There are only three routes to higher profits:  1) Raise your prices or 2) do additional work or 3) get more efficient.  Or even better do all three at the same time!

So now let’s focus our QuickTIP’s on “gitting ‘er done”… more efficiently! For example…

Examine your chemical and supply re-ordering procedures.

restock your chemicals on timeOrganize your chemical and supply shelving with a label-maker. On each label include:

1) the item and brand name and…

2) the inventory level to re-order at plus…

3) how many bottles, etc. to re-order and…

4) where to normally order the chemicals from. (You already know where I would suggest!)

Now make this part of your weekly routine to check stock levels and re-order. This cuts the dreaded “Desperation Ordering” and saves you money on shipping costs. And of course I (cough-cough) recommend ordering your chemicals HERE and supplies HERE! 🙂

In your start-up phase toward building a Critical Mass Business (CMB) likely you personally will be monitoring your inventory and re-ordering product. But “inventory control” probably is not one of your “highest and best uses”. So eventually you’ll want to delegate this task. Here’s how to do it…

Successfully delegate your inventory and re-ordering procedures by “making it easier to do it right than do it wrong”. Say what, Steve? Yep, you should develop a written Weekly Inventory Sheet to guide your employee’s routine. OR …

If you want routine “personal service” just reach out to your Jon-Don rep and ask for a friendly “restock call” on the phone number and regular schedule you choose!

Now don’t you have some organizing and labeling to do?
