Our first few years in business brough with it incredible amounts of stress around this time of year.
You have people that get their orders in to you in plenty of time, and can complete them in November.
Then you have the procrastinators. The people that place an order on December 24th, hoping to have it back by the 25th for a present.
The only way to control the procrastinators is for you to take charge. Set your deadlines – AND STICK WITH THEM.
Don’t take orders after your set deadline with any type of a promise. If a customer places an order after your deadline, they are the one’s at fault.
Use your ordering date as your policy – adhere to it – and make your customer in charge of getting the order to you on time!
