‘Tis the Season for Daily Merchandising

by Smart Merchandiser November 12, 2015 0 Comments

The holiday season is the highest inventory turnover time of the year. As inventory levels change, so should your eCommerce store. Time and time again, we stress the importance of moving items with low inventory to the bottom of the page so that such products are not taking up prime spots on your online store. This is even more important during the holiday season when the hottest items can be depleted in a matter of hours. This is why it is recommended to merchandise your online store daily this holiday season. In addition, trends are constantly changing.

by Smart Merchandiser September 22, 2015 0 Comments

Finding just the right present to give to that special someone is often the toughest part of the holiday season.

This scenario is played out in the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas movie, Jingle All the Way. In the movie, Schwarzenegger has his heart on finding his son a Turbo Man action figure, the most popular toy in town, which is sold out everywhere. He goes on a mission to find the toy and stops at nothing. Do not make your customers go through the same mission to get your products this holiday season!
