How Brick & Mortar Retailers Are Using E-commerce To Reach Customers Without Sacrificing Their Storefront

But what was once optional has become essential. While most brick and mortar retailers don’t get the e-commerce results they hoped for, some have found ways to reach their goals and even surpass their in-store sales.

How To Keep More of What You’ve Got – Tax Tips For Retailers
Guest Speaker, Lee Philips
When you add up the income tax (federal income tax and state income tax), sales tax, property tax, business property tax, franchise tax on your little company, and the possible new VAT tax, you know that between 50 to 80 percent of your annual income is taken away. That’s the first thing your asset protection plan has to address.

Day 4 Replay:

Managing Your Inventory So It Doesn’t Manage You
Guest Speaker, Paul Erickson
Inventory is the heart of your business. While we all think we are familiar with the basics of inventory management, but do we see all of the connections between SKUs and financial analysis? Starting with the basics, you’ll learn techniques and formulas to improve inventory turnover, cash flow, revenue growth, and gross margin. This program teaches from experience – not theory. Learn to control your inventory, increase your margins, improve your cash flow, and start making more money now.

Build the Right Foundation for Growing and Managing Your Business
It’s hard to create breakthroughs when you are stuck in the weeds. In this session, you will learn how to create the structure, the foundation, on which almost all great retail businesses are built.  Having the right foundation in place will make your life easier, your team more motivated and your business poised to take advantage of the opportunities that are constantly presenting themselves in this new reality we live in.

Guest Speakers At The [VIRTUAL] Retail Success Summit

One of the best parts about going virtual with the Retail Success Summit this year was that we were able to bring even more great speakers to the main stage. And for the FIRST TIME EVER you’ll get ALL the speakers’ sessions included in the video replay! The line up is packed with a ton of ideas, information, and inspiration – all designed to help YOU build a great business. They are all so different, all just amazing and all-important to hear…

We have been trying to get Randy to speak at the Retail Success Summit for years and this new VIRTUAL format has made it possible.

From the moment we met him in 2009 we were impressed by the tax planning and asset protection advice from Lee Phillips. He’s smart, he’s savvy, and he really wants you to succeed.

For over 35 years Lee has been helping entrepreneurs protect what they have built and keep more of what they have earned. Lee is a United States Supreme Court Counselor and has practiced law for over 30 years.

Josh Orr, founder of Streamline Retail, helps brick and mortar retailers launch and grow their online sales channels to increase revenue and drive more in-store traffic.
