These days, it feels like running your own business requires more time and effort than ever before. You have to manage all the day-to-day operations and invest time into the little details that keep your business up and running. At Apricot Lane, we know a thing or two about that, which is why, when you take advantage of our clothing boutique franchise opportunities, we go out of our way to make sure you have benefits from our resources and expertise. So, let’s take a look at three common hiccups of clothing store ownership and how we can help you manage them.
Marketing Your Business
Clothing boutique franchise opportunities are like any other business opportunity in that, once they go from opportunity to reality, they need to be marketed. After all, you can’t expect to do business unless people know you are in business. You’ll want to let your community know all about you and your store through channels that are available to you, and we are here to help. At Apricot Lane, we make sure all of our franchisees are prepared to do business! Our in-house marketing experts know just what it takes to spread the word. We have years of experience promoting new boutiques, and we’ll help to design and implement campaigns across a variety of channels that will reach hundreds of potential customers in your area. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to make sure none of our franchisees go it alone and that every one of them are poised for success.
Gaining and Keeping Customers
Growing and keeping a customer base is hugely important to any business, and we know that. We’ll help you win customers over with your uniquely curated inventory of the latest and greatest runway-inspired trends. When you partner with us, you’ll be providing your customers with a shopping experience that’s more akin to what they’d get from a luxury brand than from a typical store in the mall. That’s because our team is always researching the latest trends, which you can then offer your customers soon after they’re seen on the runway. Your customers will love knowing they can find styles like the ones they’ve seen in magazines and online right in their local boutique! Not only that, we have a wide network of suppliers that help us access our inventory at great prices, which means you can provide your customers with great deals on the looks they love. And that’s what will keep them coming back for more!
Surrounding Yourself with the Right Team of People
Business owners often think they can go it alone. But realistically, nobody can do that, which is why it’s crucial that owners surround themselves with the right team. From the moment you sign on as a franchisee, Apricot Lane makes sure you receive intensive and ongoing training and support. Our training program has been perfected over the course of 26 years. We have been teaching and preparing all of our franchisees—those with and without retail backgrounds—in all aspects of operating a successful retail store franchise. Our training program is designed to be comprehensive, which will help you build strong and effective habits to implement in your franchise.
