Episode 62: Amanda Fleischer of Hooray House Studio
Today I'm speaking with Amanda Fleisher retail expert and owner of Hooray House Studio. While Amanda is in the services game now, she's been up close and personal with retail since she was a teenager. She’s run corporate retail spaces, owned a brick and mortar by way of a pop-up shop (before pop-ups were even a thing) and has had success with online selling platforms for years. Amanda has seen it all and so, has dedicated her current business to sharing this knowledge with brick and mortar stores.
She started Hooray House as a way to support and teach business owners who might not have anyone to help them save their friends and families (and we all know that this isn't really enough). Through strategic business coaching Amanda provides people with real-life business advice designed to make their brick and mortar profitable, systemized and even more beloved by customers.
And here she is, generously sharing this advice with us today. We talk about what types of selling people respond to best, finding valuable collaborations and how Instagram can be used to snag repeat customers. She shares her tips for getting really good at "retail math" and why it's important to get comfortable with looking your numbers. Amanda shares a ton of valuable information and I loved my time nerding out with her on retail. If you find that this conversation helps you in some way, please share it with a friend. I would greatly appreciate your help in growing our little brick and mortar community. Enjoy the show.
Don’t forget that I’m available for consulting work. I’m scheduling clients for late May and I’m offering everything from one hour strategy sessions to long term consulting projects. Email me at (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info on the process. My goal is really to provide your business with value in a way that makes sense for you, so let me know how I can help!
