Detail - Indicateurs de performance

Flying a plane is like running a retail business, it requires a dashboard and key performance indicators to drive a better business.

There is no other way to make your boutique or E-commerce business more profitable.
You may reach your goals by luck however, one day, it will go wrong and you will have no data to know what went wrong, when it went wrong, who got it wrong and therefore how to fix it.

Gestion du temps et des priorités - Citations à méditer.

ARTICLE MIS A JOUR

What will break or make your business succeed is time and priority management.
How do you rate yourself?
Do you regularly procrastinate tasks which are important in the business and do yu just focus on the easy ones, the ones you love doing or those which are urgent but not important?

Let's check what other Business people say about Time Management and let's review some other great quotes from business leaders or successful people ...

Douglas Reid - Xerox Corp
"Management has the responsibility to explain to the employee how the routine job contributes to the business's objective. If management cannot explain the value of the job, then it should be eliminated and the employee reassigned."

Anthony Robbins- Motivational Speaker
"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you 've always gotten."

Richard Branson - Founder Virgin Group
“One of my favorite tricks is to conduct most of my meetings standing up. I find it to be a much quicker way of getting down to business, making a decision and sealing the deal. When given the opportunity I often like to take things a step further – literally, with a walking meeting.”
“I think the number one thing that I take with me when I’m traveling is the notebook… I could never have built the Virgin Group into the size it is without those few bits of paper.” “If you have a thought but don’t write it down, by the next morning it may be gone forever.”

Comment les USA deviennent un cimetiere pour les marques Europeennes

We had an insightful conversation with a British Client just recently.
As we were talking about the USA, he stated
"The USA has been a graveyard for UK Brands".

He was right, 100% right.
Why so many failures? Why can't we find the true reasons for this situation?

We have a thorough understanding of the USA, field experience and many contacts and let's share with you why the business owner compared it to a graveyard.

Croyance - J'ai toutes les compétences pour devenir un jeune Créateur

La plupart des jeunes Createurs pensent posséder toutes les compétences et expérience nécessaires pour établir leurs marques et la bâtir au niveau mondial.

Souvent, ce que nous oublions c'est que pour créer et lancer une Marque de Mode profitable il faut
* devenir un "Business Designer" c'est-à-dire être un Créateur gestionnaire et manager. 
* aborder la marque comme un Business et non comme un hobby

En l'absence de ces 2 points, la London Fashion Business Academy permet à chaque Créateur de posséder plus de 25 ans d'expérience internationale avec les différents acteurs de la Mode.

10 Règles d'Or pour réduire vos remises - et augmenter votre marge commerciale!

When you have more items on sale rails than on the rest of the floor, there are a number of things you can do, however, rolling your eyes and blaming the increasingly unpredictable weather or economy shouldn't be one of them.  

The only rolling going on should be you rolling up your sleeves and taking serious action.  If you want to make more money from your stock, it's time to start working in a different way.

Please note that the comments below refer to a multilabel store however the logic applies to all mono brand stores.

Etats-Unis: Comment augmenter les ventes?

The USA Market offers every Brand an opportunity for success however it can reveal itself as a difficult market if you refuse to learn how it works.

We will share what we have been abe to do with people to help them grow sales in the USA in less than 4 hours.

As Fashion Brands were fed up to go there unprepared and therefore losing thousands of dollars, they have asked GFM how we could help.
We came up several years ago with the "#USAWorkshop" which delivers to your Team and yourself what you need to know before you go.
You will learn the mistakes that other brands have made and there is much more to say than what this blog post can ever take!

The best quote we were provided was
“This workshop is the Rolls Royce of Fashion information on the US market”
