IT’S TIME TO ORGANISE YOUR
FASHION BUSINESS, GROW IT AND
BECOME MORE PROFITABLE. OUR INDUSTRY INSIGHTS CAN HELP YOU…

Selling direct to stores boosts revenue growth and international brand exposure

Embrace our retail business planning expertise to identify opportunities for
development.

Selling direct to stockists is great but bulk selling means smaller gross profit margins and often overtrading. Stockists, especially those with international presence, will demand low prices, sometimes charge your business to be in their stores and can encourage potentially gross profit destroying promotional deals, however, if you act accordingly this can be avoided.

Well negotiated arrangements and great relationships can make a brand in the fashion industry.

We can help you map out a deal in line with your financial situation and objectives.

We can help you connect online outlets to your bookkeeping systems.

Selling online is great as your business can operate with a lean cost base. However, building brand recognition entirely digitally in a highly competitive market requires a big marketing budget meaning there is still value in a traditional retail store for that all-important brand recognition.

We understand both traditional and digital retail so ask us for guidance.

Selling online is best for gross profit margins.

“Just having satisfied customers isn’t good
enough anymore. If you really want a booming
business, you have to create raving fans.”

– Ken Blanchard

Let us help you manage your
stock takes and inventories.

In our experience, those companies who have a handle over their stock inevitably grow and succeed. Monitoring underperforming stock lines and making sure ‘out of stock’ notices are avoided when large orders come in means cash continues to flow through the company.

We can help you manage both your cash and stock planning.

Control your stock to grow and succeed

Organisation is key to
rapid growth survival

We can help you manage
cashflow and administrative
growing pains

It seems an unusual problem but rapid growth can be a huge headache. If you are stocked in the biggest stores you will be invoicing large sums but do not expect big companies to pay for at least 90 days. To fulfil these orders, you will need to get stock in at a considerable cost, especially when gross profit margins are tight. A company in its early days will struggle to get credit terms beyond 30 days, this leaves a two-month gap between stock you have purchased and money coming into the bank.

We can help you to plan for purchase and survive until you get paid!
