Did You Know That Hundreds Of Retail Stores Across Canada Are Expected To Close By The End Of 2017?
Dear Retail Business Owner:
As you may know, online shopping in BC is expected to double in the next 4 years which pressures retail owners to create and manage an online shopping presence.
In the lower mainland especially, retail businesses have had to deal with many struggles that call for immediate action to manage an online presence. In fact, quite recently shoppers have shifted from making 1 monthly purchase on average online, to 6.5. Meanwhile, purchases at brick-and-mortar stores dropped from 7 visits to just under 5.
So, with this in mind, let me ask you some important questions…
Have you been losing a lot of sales and revenue, due to this sudden,“online revolution?”
If not, are you frustrated because you’re not making the kind of money you know you deserve? You’re working too hard, too long, and with little financial return?
Or maybe you are already experiencing some success with your retail business, but with that, you’re dealing with a lot of stress and frustration because you don’t know how to take your retail business to the next level. Do you feel like that?
If you answered yes, then let me tell you why you should attend the Retail Leaders’ Summit…
….but before I do that, let me show you why you’re not currently getting the results that you want for your business.
There are a couple of reasons only…
1.You’re Doing Everything Yourself:
Chances are, you started a retail business so that you can control your own destiny in life and spend more time with your family. However, chances are you’re far from experiencing that and you’re now “stuck” in your own business. Your forced to do everything yourself and chances are you work the most hours in your own business.
2.You’re Alone In Your Own Business
This is what keeps most retail business owners from freeing themselves up from their business. Chances are you’re not sure on how to develop the right structures and systems to systemize your business so that it runs without you.
3.Want To Transition To E-commerce But Don’t Know How:
You know how vital e-commerce is and how it’s impacted consumer’s day to day lives. However, with E-commerce being a challenging task, chances are you don’t know how to make that transition into e-commerce. In fact, you could be losing out on a lot of sales and revenue as we speak since you haven’t shifted from e-commerce…
4. Tried E-Commerce But Haven’t Found The Success You Want
Maybe in the past, you did try e-commerce and did get a couple of sales, but it hasn’t really gotten you the success that you know you deserve.
If this sounds familiar to you, I understand how you would feel. Which is why I invite you to join the Retail Leaders’ Summit, where our speakers will show you how you can solve all the problems you’re facing in your business so that you can take it to the next level.
After attending the Retail Leaders’ Summit, you will be able to transform your business with many valuable getaways and learn many lessons such as:
- Our retail professionals will share their success stories and expertise with you so that you can implement it in your own business.
- You will get to connect personally with our speakers and ask questions specifically about your business
- You will learn proven structures and systems to free yourself from your business so that you have more time for what’s most important for you
- You will discover the skills of building an A-level team of employees
- Do you value online marketing but you’re confused on how to use it to bring the highest ROI for your business? You will discover the step-by-step strategies on leveraging online marketing through your website, local SEO, Facebook, Instagram, and much more
- And much more!
In addition to these powerful strategies and tools, you will be in an environment surrounded by other like-minded retail business owners like yourself.
By surrounding yourself with positive action-oriented people, you will propel yourself to new heights and truly…
You Can’t Help But Succeed!
Each attendee you’ll meet is operating at their own level. Some are just starting out, and others are already experiencing success with their business.
Networking with this broad range of members provides you with a powerful combination of experience, JV opportunities, and knowledge that will propel your success.
It has been said that one connection could mean everything for your business and life, which is truly the case with this summit!
Transition Into E-Commerce Even if You Don’t Know How To Get Started…
Since E-commerce has been on the rise for the last couple of years, you will also learn the step-by-step strategy on transitioning smoothly into starting and managing an effective and efficient e-commerce platform.
Now you might be thinking, “Yes, I understand that e-commerce is really valuable. But how can someone like me with no technological or marketing background succeed with e-commerce?”
The strategies our speakers will reveal about starting an e-commerce business works regardless if you have no clue how to get started. We will show you how to do it, regardless if you don’t have the technical background and show you how to do it FAST and EASY!
