Sourcing and Shipping
How much time do you spend in your day-to-day business sourcing items and shipping them out? For online sellers, printing packing slips and going to the post office are some of the most time consuming tasks. There are a few ways to combat these time munchers, though:
• Create a schedule. You should only be packing orders a certain part of the day and, if possible, only certain days during the week so the remainder of your time can be devoted to growing your business.
• Pay for pickups. There’s a good chance you could save a substantial amount of time (and time = money) running to the post office if you simply schedule to have packages picked up. Simply print your labels at home and set your packages in your new “out-going” mat by the door!
