POTENTIALLY IMPROVE YOUR BOTTOM LINE BY OVER $20K / ANNUM
Retail is a game of inches not miles!
Have you considered how much you could improve your bottom line if you take the lead of the petrol stations and offer a low cost item every time you make a sale?
Studies show (in 7-11) that 64% of customers will say YES to “would you like a Kit Kat for only $2” when completing a sale. Do the maths, if you have 100 customers a day, and 64 say yes, multiplied by 7 days a week, multiplied by 52 weeks a year, that’s 23,296 units! This small change can make a HUGE impact to yearly sales and your bottom line!
