If you have staff that work for you, it’s very important that you help them be productive employees. Making sure that your employees give their all is extremely important, especially when you consider the fact that you are paying them.
4. Reduce Stock

If you currently have a large stock of product and are spending an arm and a leg to keep it in storage, you should seriously consider cutting back on your stock. Analyze your records and figure out how many purchases happen within a specific amount of time and then try and keep your stock level fairly equal to the amount of purchases within that time. Of course you should give yourself a little bit of breathing room. The last thing a marketer wants is to run out of the product they are promoting.
