Starting a family business hasn’t been easy. We’ve had our up’s and down’s. When we decided to start a gift shop in Miami, Florida – we knew this was where we wanted to raise our family and it was the type of shop we wanted to have. Adorable Necessities began as a small shop but soon we took over a larger space. Our customer base grew over the next six months as customers told others about us. It was exciting to see our business develop. But it was also a bit intimidating too.
One of our growing areas has been shipping gifts. As a gift shop we see the majority of our customers in to buy gifts for their family and friends. For every reason you can think of – birthdays, holidays and “just because.” We love gifts! But now we have a number of customers who ship gifts to their family and friends. And we just couldn’t do it without our tracking labels. They’ve truly helped keep our business in the black so to speak.
With tracking labels you know exactly where your package is at all times. This is a great convenience as you ship a package. Best of all, you don’t worry when the package is out of your hands. So many times when you ship something – a tiny bit of you does worry as you hope that package reaches the right hands okay. With a tracking label you know for sure everything is going to be fine. And if there is any type of problem, you’ll know where the package is at all times. This is a tremendous business tool for anyone doing any type of shipping to their customers. If you’ve got inventory going out that’s dollars you just can’t afford to lose. Whether you are a big or small business – you’ve always got to do what you can to stay in the black.
I think our tracking labels give our customers great peace of mind as well. I know our customers have seen them and I think they are pleased to see tracking labels on our packages. They haven’t said anything, it is more the expression on their faces. They know we are a serious and professional gift store business handling our products in the best way possible. Most importantly – they know that birthday gift to their aunt a few states away is going to reach her on time and be tracked as it gets there. That there is nothing to worry about.
Starting our own business has been very exciting in so many ways. My wife can be home for the kids when they get home from school. We have more control over our days and overall schedules. This is more the life we wanted to lead. But there have been many things we’ve needed to learn along the way to be the best business we could be. Little tips like getting great tracking labels. It sounds like a small thing but it makes a big difference – to your business and to customer satisfaction. I don’t think we’d to as much business without them!
