How to Grow Your Inventory-Based Small Business and Live to Tell the Tale

Regardless if you’re in wholesale or retail, you will likely agree that inventory tracking can be complicated. Unfortunately, much of the success of your business lies in inventory, too, making accuracy, maintenance and selection a crucial aspect of your small business that you just cannot sweep under the rug. Therefore, it may be high time to start treating inventory, not as a necessary evil, but the possible be-all and end-all of how to grow your inventory-based small business.     The key is in breaking it down into small, bite-sized pieces that you can easily manage and organize systematically, rather than tackling it piecemeal when the spirit moves you. Consider the following components: Your inventory management There’s no doubt as to the importance of solid inventory management. The real question lies in  doing it right. One legitimate concern is, of course, the question of how much inventory should  you carry at any given time. While the basic answer lies in the law of supply and customer  demand, there are actually more factors to consider, such as shelf life, seasonality, storage, and  cost.     This is where inventory control comes in. As labor-intensive as this task might seem, there are  always ways to simplify. A way to do so is by investing in inventory management software.  When implemented right, a good system not only helps you track inventory but it will also  potentially boost your bottom line by streamlining the process. And with a streamlined process,  everything else really just falls into place. Your storage Storage is a significant factor when it comes to inventory management. Know that different  products have different turnover rates. Moreover, certain products may require special storage  conditions. So while some products are okay in your basement, for example, others may be  better suited in climate-controlled self-storage or even a warehouse. There are really no specific  hard and fast rules when it comes to inventory storage, but there are best practices, [...]
