Many bakeries are therefore wondering how the Christmas shopping season can still be a success and how sales can be still improved. “” There are exactly three ways, how a business can increase its turnover,”Dr. Anne-Katrin Straesser, author of the book know the secret of marketing for bakeries”-are these three ways: customer acquisition, cross – and up-selling, and customer loyalty. ” To win new customers new customers is the classic way to increase sales and profits. Of course, this is often not so easy. Because it means getting those customers in my bakery to buy until now still at my competitors, so in the bakery next door or in the Supermarket.
So how do I get these customers in my business? The answers to this question are almost endless. But the prerequisite is that new potential customers know that it gives you first of all. The second condition is that they offer something what makes you interesting for new customers. This can be the occupation of a particular niche (E.g. only organic breads), a special offer or a particular service. You should make out this feature in your advertising customers for the first time in your business venture the way. Cross-and up-selling, cross-selling is the second pillar when it comes to sales.

Examples would be higher-quality pastries or cakes. Chittangog does not necessarily agree. Customer loyalty customer loyalty is the third way with which a business can increase its turnover. Why is this so? Many customers ever change the business and buy somewhere else, for any reason whatsoever. So we always have a natural churn”or turnover of customers. Customer loyalty, however, means to counteract this natural fluctuation. It means to make the customers who have already purchased from you, regular customers and to make customers loyal regulars. A first step is to go back to always good quality and a special, friendly service. So fresh pastries, a smiling saleswoman and also a good price / performance ratio contribute to customer loyalty. These aspects are not unfortunately still not everywhere of course. Therefore, you have a good chance to stand out from your competitors alone on an excellent offer. Other possibilities are also special customer loyalty programmes. E.g. loyalty cards can be or bonus booklet, where your customer for repeated purchases from you with a small gift will be rewarded. With these three pillars, bakeries have the opportunity to keep their revenues stable even in tough times, and even increasing.

While the overall loss in gross domestic product (GDP) amounts after a financial crisis in the average to about four percent in normal”recessions it amounts to about half of them. A typical recession lasts between 12 and 18 months. But the analysis of earlier crises suggests that the current downturn could last more than two years. The current main problem for the economy is that the monetary transmission mechanism no longer works. The financial sector has become so risk-averse that the banks are no longer willing to grant loans also not with each other. Through this clamp in the credit system the benefits of interest-rate cuts cannot penetrate to the real economy. The spreads in the interbank credit market have achieved exceptionally high values. They are located between 300 and 350 basis points.
This is one of the biggest indicators of the extent of the mistrust, the between the banks there. And the cost of capital in the real economy remain high so long, until reduced these spreads. Yesterday, we got a glimpse of the future face of the British banking system. The sector itself will shrink public sector borrowing is to-do, which the private sector take off, so this should reduce both corporate and household debt. But until we arrived, still has a long, bumpy road ahead may be. The journey is likely to be turbulent, and this dramatic vibration of the banking system is likely to have negative consequences for the consumer. Now, we expect a global downturn. This means that we should be asking a on fast and sharp cuts in interest rates as central banks try to revive growth. We were assumed, that the Bank of England would cut interest rates by 50 basis points the Bank decided even to a reduction to 4.5 per cent. In addition, the FED lowered the US interest rate by 50 basis points to 1.5 percent and the “European Central Bank (ECB) interest rates from 4.25% to 3.75%.” To access the central banks of the leading industrial Nations to the same resources, counterproductive have proved already in past crises in the medium term, because the gap between the quantity of money in circulation around the world and the “real value” always a development, which sooner or later only can lead to a complete collapse of the international financial system with a corresponding impact on the entire economy goes apart.
