Make It Easy

B

ack-to-school shopping is in full swing. Whether your customers shop in-store or online, the key is to make it as easy as possible for them. According to The National Retail Federation (NRF), back-to-school spending is expected to total $36.9 billion this year, so it’s essential to be prepared

and amp up your back-to-school marketing strategy. One way to get started is to ensure you have bright window displays that attract shoppers as they prepare for the school year. As you greet customers, you could also mention discounts and show them where back-to-school items are located. Creating a back-to-school area with school-themed merchandise arrangements labeled clearly, organized, and color coordinated, would also be a nice touch. In that area, you could offer a school beauty bundle. Bundled products make it easy for customers who may be in a rush or looking for a discount. Boost sales by ensuring your website is mobile-friendly. More people are shopping online because it’s convenient and time efficient. Enabling the abandoned shopping cart feature on your site, making sure your call-to-action buttons are compelling, and optimizing images to load quickly, can help your customers shop easily. Check out “Enhancing The Customer Experience” on page 10 and our OTC Book Club Bold Questions: Business Strategy Edition on page 35 for more ideas. Our August issue focuses on Kid’s hair care products and accessories. For hair accessory inspiration, check out what Dream World offers in our MarketPlace on page 12 and “The Best in Children’s Hair Care” on page 24 for hair collections and products. I hope you have a successful back-to-school season and that you treat yourself to something nice for all of your hard work.

4 BUSINESS TIPS BY LISA APOLINSKI, CMC

When the pandemic hit, the shift to virtual meetings was a blessing. Employees could still continue to work.

Colleagues were able to collaborate. Conferences and training could still happen. And virtual connection was better than no connection at all.

But the surge of virtual meetings was not without issues.

According to a recent survey, since the start of the

How To Get The Best Of Both Worlds

pandemic 50 percent of employees have one to three

hours of virtual meetings per week. And while complaints were frequent

on the amount of time lost starting a meeting due to technical difficulties,

still a little over half of employees prefer virtual meetings, while just under half prefer in person ones.

Perhaps due to the availability of online meetings, this survey also found that from 2020 to 2021, the number of meetings attended by workers has gone up nearly 13 percent.

a hybrid meeting would seem like the perfect combination. The trick, however, is to plan on combining these two modes of engagement to have the best outcome rather than a happy (or not so happy) accident. Here are four tips to get the right combo from the start.

1. Incorporating Virtual Participants In Unique Ways The idea of combining virtual and in person does dictate which meeting venue leads and which venue is folded into the mix. Simply putting up a large screen on the side of the conference or meeting would be akin to having people call in on a conference line. Instead, use a moderator both

Sponsored by Andis Co.

Back-to-School Tools By Andis

Envy® Adjustable Blade Clipper The Envy Adjustable Blade Clipper is great for all-around cutting on both wet and dry hair.

Perfect for using in the dorms, the magnetic motor on this clipper stays cool and runs quiet.

Slimline® Pro GTX Trimmer The Slimline Pro GTX Trimmer is the ideal tool for the student on-the-go. Because of Its cordless design and compact size, it can easily be tucked into a backpack for weekend road trips.

Best of all, its popular wide GTX stainless-steel blade with deep-tooth pattern feeds hair faster.

BEAUTY AMBASSADOR BY ALLYSON LEAK

THE POWER OF PEACE It’s no secret that stress is becoming a major health problem in today’s society. Stress can have negative effects on the mind, body, and spirit. It has been proven that chronic stress can impact both our physical and psychological well-being, which can lead to an increase in anxiety, insomnia, and even high blood pressure.

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining awareness of your feelings and thoughts in a non-judgmental way. It can help you stay in tune with your mind, body, and spirit so that you know what you need for mental peace and when you need to prioritize self-care.

What role does inner peace play at work? When you are less stressed and anxious, it allows you to have more clarity and flourish creatively at work. Practicing mindfulness can also increase your emotional quotient. Having a high EQ can make it easier to see solutions to problems and handle situations with coworkers in a harmonious way. Here are a few mindfulness activities that you can start incorporating into your daily or weekly schedule to help you unwind a bit.

Not getting enough rest can contribute to stress. It’s not only about getting in bed earlier, your sleep routine is important, too. Set a timer and allow at least 20 minutes of unwinding time before you decide to go to bed. You can put on an essential oil diffuser, listen to a sleep meditation, or read a book (about a soothing topic).
