Welcome to your Dubbo Chamber Newsletter - Badiya!
99 days till Christmas!! Have you prepared your marketing, sales, promotions? As much as we like to laugh at stores putting out Xmas decorations this early, it’s now that people start shopping in earnest. Don’t leave it too late.
Maybe start planning what you will do over the Xmas break, if it’s a quiet time for you? What will you work on - better procedures at work, fix up your website, think about refreshing your store? What would like to be doing different in 2015?

Would you like to have a dose of business inspiration and be challenged to take a look at your business model and where you’re going?
