Most certainly, says Nicole Leinbach-Reyhle, Publisher of RetailMinded.Com.
The publisher of RetailMinded.Com, Leinbach-Reyhle will be a featured speaker at the forthcoming Independent Retailer Conference March 1-4 in Las Vegas, NV.
She joined AustinHill’s BigWorld of SmallBusiness to talk about the conference, and about the ways in which small business owners can survive, and thrive.
“This is a really fun experience for independent retailers of all categories. It’s an opportunity to engage and connect with people who know what they’re talking about, and who can deliver some seriously valuable information to independent retailers.
Surviving as an independent retailer can be a daunting task in an economy dominated by big box stores, but Leinbach-Reyhle is up to the challenge. “What do independent retailers need to do to remain competitive? They’ve got to remain engaged in their communities, they’ve got to remain visible, and they’ve got to remain relevant to their consumers.”
One important factor for remaining relevant and competitive is to effectively manage customer data, she says. “I can’t stress enough how important data is for independent retailers. What traditionally was accessible for larger businesses and big box retailers is now very accessible for smaller businesses to apply in nearly every category of a business – social media, inventory management, and so forth. The independent retailer conference addresses all these issues, helps provide solutions, and helps business owners realize that they don’t have to do all of this alone, there are great professionals who can help you.”
