How to Get the Most Out of Early Buy

May 24, 2012

For Magnet Works retailers, it’s time to take advantage of our best promotion of the year – our Early Buy program. These are the biggest benefits of Early Buy:

  • $500+ order – Net 45 and free freight*
  • $1,500+ order – Net 60 and free freight*
  • $3,000+ order – Net 90 and free freight*
Full, but not over-stuffed display

A full, but not over-stuffed display is much easier for customers to shop.

But there are more ways to get a better return on your Early Buy investment, without necessarily spending more money!

1.) Break It Down into Multiple Shipments The amount of extended dating you qualify for is determined by the combined total of your Early Buy orders. That means you can break your Early Buy into multiple shipments! For example, you can write two $250 orders instead of one $500 order and still get Net 45 dating and FREE freight. This approach will keep new product arriving in intervals, instead of all at once. Your fixtures will stay full, rather than over-stuffed. And it will improve your cash flow because you have the potential to sell through your first batch of product before the next invoice comes due.

2.) Sync Your Shipments with the Seasons If properly planned, each of your shipments can help transition your store and your customers through the seasons. For example, you could start with a shipment of fall leaves and florals. Then follow that up with a Halloween shipment, and next, Thanksgiving. Then you could start bringing in Christmas designs and eventually birds and snowmen to finish out the winter. By taking the time now to plan out your inventory and purchases, you not only save money, but you free yourself up to focus on sales, marketing, and displays when the seasons arrive.

3.) Stock Up on Heavy Stuff Each Early Buy promo level includes FREE freight, so this is the best time to stock up on those heavier items like garden stakes, flag poles, yard stakes, and ornamental posts. I recommend that you add them to your first order AND to your last order, so you can maximize the savings without sacrificing too much storage space.

4.) Back Up the Hot Items If you love an item on our best sellers list, chances are it’s going to be a great seller for you. So back it up by adding it to your second or third Early Buy order as well, not just your first.

5.) Contact Your Local Sales Rep Not only will reps help you identify best sellers by design and category, but they come to your store armed with tons of helpful experience and resources. They can help you flesh out your Early Buy inventory plan or develop a sales and marketing strategy. As our reps would say, you can’t NOT do this! If ordering for Fall/Holiday will be on your To Do list eventually, it makes good business sense to order early and take advantage of all the great benefits.

Retailers, what did I leave out? What would you suggest to a retailer new to our Early Buy program? How do you break up your shipments? Please share your thoughts in a comment below and feel free to ask questions.

Yard DeSign + Flowers = Irresistible Mother’s Day Gift

April 25, 2012

Want to offer your customers an irresistible Mother’s Day gift?

Try combining floral themed Yard DeSigns or BreezeArt garden flags with a healthy bunch of Mother’s Day flowers. It’s a simple way to take these products and any potted flowers to the next level.

Yard DeSign with coordinating flowers

To create this easy promotion, all you need is:

Yard DeSign and BreezeArt garden flag with cello wrap and ribbon

For retailers who sell flowers, this project should be a breeze. But if you don’t sell flowers, consider partnering up with a local garden center or flower shop to purchase and sell coordinating potted flowers for Mother’s Day.

Make it easier for everyone.

Set up a space where you can customize your Yard DeSigns on-site while your customer waits. Have several plants and stakes staged with cello wrap and bows pre-cut. Keep the self adhesive numbers and a bowl of soapy water nearby.

When the customer is ready to buy one, follow these steps:

1.) Peel numbers off the sheet included with the sign to reveal the adhesive backing.

2.) Dip the number in the soap and water solution and slide the number into position.

3.) Gently blot the excess water with a paper towel when all numbers are in place.

4.) Attach the magnet to a yard stake, wrap the whole thing in cello wrap, and tie a ribbon around it to mimic a giant lollipop.

Mother's Day Yard DeSign

5.) Stick it in a pot of beautiful coordinating flowers, and you’re done!

Your customers will be thrilled to find such an exceptional, yet easy gift, and their mothers will be blown away!

Remember, helping to create unique and memorable gifts is what keeps the “Special” in Specialty Retailer and builds long-lasting relationships with your customers.

What Mother’s Day promotions will you be running in your store this year? What custom gift combinations have worked well for you? We’d love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and questions in the comments below.
