Q: Does Marketing Work?
A: Yes, marketing can be effective in promoting a product or service, attracting customers, and increasing sales. However, the success of marketing efforts depends on various factors such as the target audience, the quality of the product/service, and the chosen marketing channels.
Q: How Do I Choose The Right Location For My Store?
A: One crucial factor to consider for a scrub store is whether vendors or manufacturers will allow the store to open an account. One common challenge faced by new store owners is selecting a location, only to discover that a vendor will not open an account with them due to the proximity of a competitor already selling the same brand. To avoid this problem, it is recommended to research the location and contact vendors beforehand to inquire if opening a store in that location would prevent them from opening an account with them.
Q: How Do I Determine What Inventory To Carry?
A: In short, the recommended strategy is to stock the most popular scrub brands, such as Cherokee, Healing Hands, Med Couture, Kindthreads, Barco, Zavate, Wink, and Maevn. However, for a more comprehensive answer, it is suggested to book a consultation with Scrub Store 101, and they can provide further assistance and guidance.
Q: How Do I Set Prices For My Products?
A: You can conduct research online, or we can assist you. It's suggested to avoid being the cheapest in the market unless IMAP (Internet Minimum Advertised Price) requires it, and likewise, avoid being the most expensive. Aim to set prices that are in the middle range. To determine the right price, take the cost of the product (for instance, if the cost of a top is $10), and multiply it by two, which gives you $20. This pricing strategy is known as "Keystone." Then add an additional amount to that, such as $1.99, resulting in "Keystone plus $1.99." This pricing model is widely used in the industry.

Setup an email marketing system, 6. Build your marketing tool kit (group brochure, business cards, handouts, catalogs, product samples), 7. Advertise.
