Getting organised for the busy season ahead
On the Make Episode 4 - on getting your business organised for the busy season ahead, a solo episode with me, Josephine Brooks
This episode I talk about how you can get organised over the summer months to prepare for the busy season ahead. For most makers and designers the last four months of the year are generally the busiest. In fact, Amalia from the Botanical Candle Co. who I interviewed for episode 7 (coming soon) mentioned that 80% of their sales come in the last four months of the year, highlighting just how busy those last months of the year can be.
IN THIS EPISODE WE COVER:
Decluttering your workspace
Having your kit and machinery serviced or cleaned
Reviewing your website and product listings
How are your product images looking?
Getting your accounts together
Setting an income goal for the rest of the year
Touching base with your wholesale contacts
