Is Your Data All Over The Place? Take Control!


With the economy in the dumpster, it's more important than ever to
take control of all of your lists. It could be the thing that gets
your business through any tough time. Plus, you might miss out on
sending email campaigns to certain recipients just because you forgot
about them, which means less revenue to you in the long run.

Do you have your lists in more than one of these places?

* VerticalResponse
* ACT, FileMaker, Salesforce or any other contact manager QuickBooks
or your accounting system
* POS Systems
* Shoeboxes and fishbowls of business cards
* Spreadsheets
* Sign Up Book

Retailers: Great Internet Retailer Survey


Internet Retailer published their Holiday Sales Survey recently. It's
a pretty comprehensive survey that might give retailers out there some
ideas for the holiday season. It was surprising to me that most of the
retailers they surveyed had sales revenue of less than 1 million
annually. That really speaks to the smaller retailers weighing in
rather than Target or Walmart.

The top three take-aways were that you should start marketing early,
should include gifts with a purchase and include lower priced items in

the assortment you offer. Reducing prices across the board was also a
big one.
