5 Promises Every Retailer Has to Make For New Year

Share This Post

We’ve been through alot this year…
Spacecraft Juno reached Jupiter, UK leaving EU in Brexit, Scientists found the gene that’s linked to ALS, and of course – Trump was elected.

As retailers and also as individuals, every new year brings us to a crossroad. We feel the urge inside to decide if we rather stick to our path or perhaps change our ways. This feeling usually vanishes as the routine starts to kick in again pretty quickly.

This year, maybe it’s better if we take this early year motivation and start changing our way of thinking. It may be easier said than done, but still… all we need to do is to promise ourselves that this year, we’ll do all the efforts to make it even greater. Here are 5 promises that every retailer can relate to, and by holding these, you’ll know you did your best towards a successful new year.

Start fresh
New year is just an excuse to throw away all your bad habits. This is something that you can do all year long, but it’s harder to find the right anchor or starting point for that without a specific date. That’s why new year is a such a great time for that. All of the past failures can be treated as lessons to the future; All the mistakes, misunderstandings and bad vibes can be left behind. Starting from scratch by all means!

Make new habits
There’s no time like the present to start working on all of the things you ever wanted to change in your daily business routine. From morning meetings, creating weekly goals into making detailed reports that will increase your business performance in any aspect. Usually we all know what we should do, but never find the time to actually start doing it.

Talk to your staff
Your employees are the beating heart of your business. They handle with your customers all day long and they know much more about your business than you think. Talking to your staff and hearing their opinions is vital if you wish to improve as a business, and towards establishing better relations between employees and managers.

Analyze your successes
Obviously, not everything went perfect in the previous year. But you’ve probably done some things right. Try to find what you did best and see how you can improve in those aspects even more. Strengthening your strengths is one of the best ways to grow your business, and also as an individual.

Set your goals
Where do you want to see your business in 2018? Take this state of mind and see where you can place it in the present. Every business needs a vision, and if you can set exact goals that will walk you through on your daily tasks, you’re probably already halfway there.

All in all,
There are many ways for success. Some business owners already live by those rules anyway without any effort, and some still have a journey to make before they will emphasise these practices as a way of living.

We all have our strengths and better sides, we just have to keep it as an ongoing mission to keep moving forward with a positive attitude, along with a constructive way of thinking.

“To Whom It May Concern,

Let me take a moment,out of my very busy day to review my experience of Sebastian Chaviano.
Sebastian is a dream customer service/technical support person. He’s extremely professional and nano-second responsive in every interaction. We’ve even worked on a chronic issue where I learned that his perseverance and patience are also outstanding. Over my 33 years of working in Silicon Valley, I’ve rarely met someone as easy with which to work as Sebastian.

That said, over the past 3 months of getting to know Nova POS, for the first time, I’ve also worked with Frank, Jeffrey, Jose, & Tomer – all provide the immediate service and answers I’ve required. You have a great team at Nova POS. Keep up the good work.”


My name is Mert Firat, and I am the proud owner of multiple flourishing retail chains in a rapidly expanding big city. Since 2008, Nova has been a cornerstone of our ability to operate in a such a fast-paced urban environment. The top-notch customer support team at Nova has consistently exceeded my expectations, ensuring any and all concerns are promptly addressed. The live-support feature has been a lifesaver on several occasions, with expert assistance just a click away. The user-interface of the software is incredibly easy to learn, operate, and teach new employees. This hassle-free experience is imperative for the entire company,  from the CEO to every newly hired employee. What has truly set our experience apart are our account manager and technical support manager, who have been a game-changer in streamlining the process and finding creative solutions. We could not be happier with Nova, and would not be here today without the outstanding experience we’ve continuously been having for the past 16 years.

Kind Regards,
