Numbers You Need To Know And Watch In Your Business To Be Successful

The most successful product-based businesses are metrics obsessed.  You can't manage something that you don't measure.  If you can't measure something, you have little chance of improving it.

To grow your business, you need to focus on two areas.

1-  Setting the right key performance indications, also known as KPI's and then tracking their metrics.

2-  Make sure that you have an analytics system in place to measure all these metrics as accurately as possible.

Today on the Product Biz Made Easy Podcast, we are talking about numbers you need to know and watch in your business.  Listen here.

How To Design Your Products Around The Trends

One of the things that helped my candle business be so successful was designing my products around the trends.  I spent a lot of my time watching trends both in fashion and in home decor.

Have you ever wondered how all the retailers know what the trends are?  You walk the mall and see all the same colors in the windows?  Well, it doesn't happen by accident.  If you have a product-based business and you wait until you see trends at retail it is too late to make products with those trends.  By the time you get products made, new trends will be out.
