Tips for Melbourne Gift Fair

The Melbourne gift fair kicks off today. Here are my updated tips for retailers shopping the fair.

  1. Have a budget. Stay within it.
  2. Have a buying plan, to ensure you are buying to the goals of the business.
  3. Buy knowing that you are not your customer.
  4. Know that your buying is the first step to attracting new traffic to your business.
  5. Write on each order your delivery timing requirements.
  6. Write on each order any promises made, so the order fully documents your expectation. These could include exclusive territory, returns etc.
  7. Write on the order whether you accept backorders.
  8. Write on the order by which time the order is cancelled if they are unable to supply.
  9. Photograph every order placed.

If you are going to the fair, have a great time!
