One thing we’re finding with our apparel plan calls is that many affiliate owners find apparel to be a chore. It is just another task to do and because it ranks so low on the priority list, it is the easiest to skip or delay. Unlike other tasks, this one is different because it involves revenue. By skipping or delaying a retail item, you are giving yourself a pay cut for the year.
Let’s do quick and conservative math….
Say you sell 50 shirts per order and you plan 6 orders throughout the year….
50 shirts sold * $12 (profit assuming the shirt cost $13 each)= $600
600*6= $3,600 of net profit.
The simple trick to make retail a priority is to make a goal for the yearly profit from apparel. What will you do with an extra $3,600? Will you take your family on a vacation? Will you donate it to your favorite charity? How about paying down that business loan? Set a goal for using that profit somewhere. Set a quarterly check in reminder to hold yourself accountable and to check your progress.
