The only thing not taken into consideration and often forgotten is the shipping process. The shipping process is the weak link in the majority of businesses. In this article you will discover a few tips that will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars annually.
It does not matter if you are an Army of one working from your kitchen table, or you are a multi-billion dollar corporation — we all face the same problems as business owners. The rising cost in delivering the product to our clients. The cost of packaging which includes custom shipping labels etc. continue to rise. Most business owners simply pass the cost on to the client. We all know that it is only so long that you can continue to pass the cost on before we start loosing clients.
This isn’t just a problem with a few businesses. This problem is a global problem and if we want to survive, we have to change the way we think about things.
Some business owners will continue raising prices, while others will start to cut back on staff. Because of the panic and fear of loosing what you have worked so hard for most business owners are missing what is right in front of them.
Although there are a lot of solutions I am just pointing out one extremely small one that you can leverage instantly. You can easily cut some of your costs by implementing a more economical shipping process. The question is were do you start?
I have put together a few simple questions for you to answer. Do not worry if you do not know the answer to all of them. For now it is ok to guess.
- How much ink/toner/ribbons are you currently using monthly.
- How much does your printer cost you monthly?
- How much are you paying in customized shipping labels monthly?
- How much volume are you shipping monthly?
- Should you be automating your shipping process?
These are the exact questions that we here at Label Rack ask our clients when we go in to consult with them. Most of the time they have no clue what the answers are to the questions.
