As we take a look outside the windows here at Synergy Merchant Services headquarters in Toronto, we can’t help but smile. It appears as if there isn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining brightly. Gone are the dog days of winter, here are the glorious days of pre-summer. (You may call it “spring”.)
When the weather changes and things are looking brighter, it is difficult to not think of the changes that one can make to truly enjoy the season. Very obviously, your winter boots and coats will need to be put away in favour of t-shirts, shorts and runners. But, more importantly, there are other changes that are necessary to help prepare for the rest of the year.
As a business owner, you are, no doubt, thinking about the ways in which you can utilize the beautiful weather to make your business more welcoming to customers. Something as simple as keeping your front door propped open can be deemed a greeting to passers-by, who will be more likely to pop their heads in to your store.
A special “spring sale” is another good idea. Nothing like welcoming the season by clearing out items that are better suited for the season that has just past. Even better, offering customers special discounts on items that are best used in summer is sure to grow your sales.
Restaurants, for example, are now able to open up their patios to offer patrons the option of eating indoors or outdoors. When the weather changes, it only makes sense for your business to change along with it. The main problem, it seems, is that many business owners feel unable to prepare for the changing seasons as they lack the appropriate funding.
Our funding specialists once spoke to the owner of an auto body shop who complained that he didn’t have enough supplies to meet the demand of the customers who wanted to tint their car windows before the summer started. Considering himself an owner of a “smaller garage”, he still wanted to make sure that he could compete in his industry.
A merchant cash advance – we are proud to say – is the quickest and easiest way for small and medium-sized Canadians businesses to get money. This client of ours put his cash advance to good use – thus, making himself more money then he would have had he not received the funding.
The possibilities are endless. It’s all about being able to keep your business up with the times. Or, in some cases, the weather! As the warm spring weather becomes more and more apparent, your customers’ needs will change to fit the season. How can you meet those needs?
