Finding a balance? How to juggle the options of promotion and just plain offering a great shopping experience. I wish it was clear, like putting a sign up or taking it down. However it's more like what color, what size, what should it say, what font should we use, what's the message, where should we put it.....get my point?
It is an exciting time for me to be exploring the options of social media and gather some knowledge to promote HiHo more aggressively. The map is changing everyday. I'm trying to develop a plan, much like the plans I draw for floor moves and lists of merchandise I make for themed displays. Although these tools are behind the scenes and often not as apparent to customers as my displays, they are part of the balance of the business.
More importantly is the balance of family and work. A much harder balance for me to strike.
