How often you are checking performance of your store?
Like a child, the business was born and gently and carefully, you nurtured it to growth. Like a mother who daily looks after her new born baby, noticing new signs of growth, you monitored every detail of your online store.
Months later, your figurative baby - the online store can now walk, and you became like a busy father you decides to take trips, watching your business from afar expecting profits.
Just like the start, your online store should be treated like that baby by a mother till the very end. No mother waits till month end to give
attention to her child because this can be fatal to the child just as it can be to your business.
How can daily reports help your business?
Day to day comparison
Daily sales report gives direct daily comparison.
- Did you do better on Saturday than on Sunday?
- Why was Saturday better?
- Is there something we did on Saturday that caused the increased sale some can repeat it on Monday and Tuesday?
Your daily sales report would help you to answer such questions and help you to make more sales every day. The goal in business is ultimately to make sure that today is always better than yesterday.
Codes develop bugs over time, and traffic could exceed bandwidth, just like a conventional store, maintenance is a must.
Maintaining a store that is supposed to be up and running 24 hours a day might seem confusing. A comedian once asked why stores that are open 24/7 and 365 days a year have locks (I think I only saw them use those doors in a zombie apocalypse movie).
Maintaining an online store can be easy though when you know exactly when you can run a maintenance check without losing customers.
With your daily report, you get to know at what day during the week you have the least customers and with that information you can schedule maintenance around that time minimizing profit loss.
You wouldn’t want to bring down your site for maintenance on black Friday now would ya?
Your daily sales reports can help you follow market trends.
- What are they buying?
- Who are buying?
- How much are they buying?
This data shows you the general behavior of your customers and help you plan according to it.
In any way you look at it, the best way to know and help your business stay alive is to monitor it daily.
It helps you find new ways to further rake in the profits and keep customers happy. You get to monitor your figurative child , where every day brings something new and each challenge becomes an interesting experience to learn from.
Who doesn’t love counting money? Who doesn’t like the hope of counting even more money? I guess we all love money.
Your daily sales reports can keep you in the loop of how much you are making, compared with your set goals, and if you are not hitting your target, you get motivated to strive for more.
Let your daily report be your morning dose of intense motivation.
This is a great challenge when you see that revenues was increased significantly, you could earn even more in comparison with yesterday again and again.
It will become more and more interesting every day to manage their own business. This is like to raising a child. Every day brings something new and you will be in the center of events with daily reports.
Keep the pulse of the business under control, and it will gratefully respond to your attention.
