"As Good As It Gets" — IRTA's Solmar Resort Convention Site

The International Reciprocal Trade Association has a reputation of holding its annual conventions at top-tier, first class resorts, and this year's all-inclusive Solmar Resort in Cabo San Lucas may be the best ever!

"The Solmar is a legitimate 4.5 to 5.0 star resort — it simply doesn't get any better than the Solmar — this is a barter industry convention you definitely don't want to miss," says IRTA's Executive Director Ron Whitney.
IRTA's 36th Annual International Convention is happening from September 17 through 19, 2015. The resort is being offered at the amazing 3-day/3-night rate of $559 cash and 500 UC trade per person, and there are shoulder rooms* available to extend your stay 3 days before or 3 days after the convention. You won’t want to miss out on this year's amazing convention.

Lost-Customer Recovery Represents Wise Company Investment

Lost customers represent a substantial profit drain for most firms. Every year, the average company loses 20% to 40% of its customers. When a longtime customer defects, the negative effect on profit is substantial, because in most cases the profit contribution of a mature customer is dramatically higher than a newer one.
And don't make the mistake of thinking that a longtime, high-value customer is easily replaced. Research shows that every market space has a limited number of high-end customers.
In his book, All Customers Are Not Created Equal, Garth Hallberg points out that for most categories of business, one-third of the buyers account for at least two-thirds of the volume. "The high profit segment (of buyers) generally delivers six to ten times more profit than the low profit segment," he explains. "Moreover, they are critical (to your business); not only because of their profit contribution, but also because of their relatively small number."
Although most companies consider lost customers as dead-end opportunities, with no hope for revival, many of these lapsed customers are simply dormant and awaiting resuscitation. A study by Marketing Metrics found that the average company has a 60% to 70% probability of selling again to active customers, a 20% to 40% chance of selling to lapsed customers, and only a 5% to 20% probability of a successful sale to a new prospect.
Get smart about reactivation, and estimate what your lapsed customers are worth in future purchase potential. Identifying which customers represent the most long-term value is important for wisely prioritizing your win-back resources.

What's The Best Location for Your Business?

If you're preparing to open a food or retail business, finding the proper location might just be the single, most important thing you do at startup. In the retail world it's said the three major decisions you will make are location, location, location. Of course you need a winning product, too. But how will anyone know what you have to offer unless you get them through the door?
Although there are sophisticated location analysis tools available that include traffic pattern information, demographic and lifestyle data, there’s another much simpler and effective way to determine a superior venue.
Where you should locate can be very straightforward … quite simply, the best place to be (with few exceptions) is as close to your biggest competitor as possible. That's because, while foot traffic is obviously crucial, landing the "perfect" customer is far more crucial. By being in close proximity to your competitors, you can benefit from their marketing efforts.

Keep in mind that your successful competitors chose their locations based on the ideal demographics of a particular area. And in many cases, they've also devoted large portions of their advertising budgets toward driving traffic to their store. With that in mind, it stands to reason that locating near your competition can be a big plus for your business, especially when armed with a winning product.
