In an era where 62 percent of Americans own pets, and the majority view their pets as members of the family, it follows that a dog kennel should be a fairly successful business model. However, the success of a dog kennel is contingent on many factors, including the size of the town you live in and the amount of competition in your area. Smaller towns inevitably have slower economies, making it challenging for kennels to stay open year-round. For larger cities, there are often so many dog kennels to choose from, it can be a constant challenge to compete. Here are some tips to improve the revenue of your dog kennel, no matter the challenges you face in the industry.

Are you looking to create a spooky haunted house this Halloween? So eerie, your friends will have nightmares for weeks? So scary, your haunted house will be the talk of the town? Planning a truly terrifying haunted house is no easy task, especially if you’re on a budget. However, if you start prepping early, you can craft a petrifying experience that will send shivers down the spine of all who dare to enter.

Start with a Theme

Every haunted house needs a great theme, so you can create a compelling ambiance that will immerse visitors in a petrifying haunted dimension. Whether you opt for a haunted asylum, a living graveyard, or a live chainsaw massacre, that parts up to you. Choose a theme that’s scary, will resonate with your desired audience and age group, and will be easy to create based on the resources you already have on hand.

The average teacher spends about $500 out-of-pocket on school supplies every year. This is largely due to a shortage in school funding. Many teachers want to provide a superior classroom experience to students, but find themselves unable to afford all project supplies via the strict school budget alone. Yet, with the modest income teachers are already earning, they shouldn’t have to spend their own money on supplies. Here are some tips to provide an exemplary classroom experience, while remaining well within your tight budget.

The rate of online shopping has been rapidly growing. It’s estimated that today, about 46 percent of all holiday shopping is conducted online. For general shopping, estimates are even higher. The Wall Street Journal claims that shoppers make about 51 percent of their purchases via the web. So, why are so many shoppers seeking out the digital realm, and what specific benefits does it offer? 

Shopping Online Can Help You Avoid the Holiday Chaos

Estimates show that online shopping is slightly less popular over the holidays than for everyday items. This makes sense, as many folks are often in search of that perfect gift, and it involves a lot more browsing and store hopping to find it. However, for those who know just what they’re after, shopping online can reduce a lot of holiday stress.

Have you ever wondered what impact pricing has on sales? Studies show that pricing actually plays a significant role in the number of products you sell, but not always for the reasons you think. Many small businesses think that lower prices will incentivize sales, but this isn’t always the case. Here is the complete guide to pricing, so you can price every product to sell at maximum capacity. 

Pricing Is a Marketing Tactic

Pricing is about a lot more than profit margins. Pricing is a marketing tactic in and of itself. When products are priced in a way that optimizes consumer spending, it results in increased sales and better ROI. As with any marketing tactic, the key to success is to get into the minds of your customers by examining customer data. For pricing, this process is simple. You can test various price models alongside one another to see which type of pricing fares best among customers.
