1.Get your pricing right

I think this is where a lot of people trip mainly because they want to make a quick buck and forget that customers are very picky when it comes to the items that they buy. We've decided to break the process down using the steps below:

— Which customers are you targeting for your offerings: Rich individuals that won't hesitate to splurge their money in expensive clothes or middle class citizens that survive by their 9 to 5 jobs that barely covered their monthly expenses?

— The above questions is important because it will allow your to tailor make your prices according to your target market.

— Let's say you want to sell for the middle class. This means that your items must be affordable and of average quality to provide value for your customers.

— The strategic price you set for your offering must not

only attract buyers in large numbers but also help you to retain them.

2.Marketing is the backbone of the business

This is a very complex machine that requires years of trial and error in order to master but the main principles remain the same - it's to get the word out there that your business exists and it's the ultimate solution to your customers worst problems.

— What is the story behind your brand? Nothing sticks to people's head better than a relatable business story. This can include your humble beginnings, your footprint in the fashion industry and where you business is heading.

— Word of mouth is the lucky charm that will allow your business to take off beautifully. In simple terms it refers to free marketing that you get from satisfied customers. When they get a better service or product that adds value into their lives they won't hesitate to share their amazing stories with friends and family members.

3.Don't underestimate the power of social media

We are living in a very interesting world that has simplified the process of acquiring customers and promoting your business. I mean we have more businesses with websites that we have in newspaper advertisements. This says a lot of the transformation that is continuously taking place in the business world.
