    We’re seeing more designers opening retail showrooms, and retailers delving into the designer side of the business. Whether brick-and-mortar or e-commerce, how does playing in both the retail and design spaces open up opportunities in the home design market? These hybrid designers/retailers share what works best for them and how to be successful in both retail and design channels. As part of Home Design Business Think Tank: Maximize Your Profitability! We’ll explore the facets of growing a successful interior design business and home furnishings retail as part of a series of four panels — from the categories and opportunities you should be considering to ways to make money outside of client interaction.

  • Using Financing to Retain and Attract Customers in Uncertain Economic Times 10/14/2020

    11:00 AM - 12:00 PM | IMC-DesignOnHPMKT Webinar via ZOOM

    Speakers: Mike Rittler - TD Bank

    Event Type: Educational, Webinar

    Mike Rittler

    Across the business world, 2020 is a time of uncertainty brought on by the global pandemic, upcoming election, tariffs and trade wars, and market volatility. When there's uncertainty, consumers may change the way they spend their money, particularly when it comes to big purchases like furniture. For furniture retailers, the one constant focus will remain attracting and retaining customers and fostering customer loyalty. Mike Rittler, General Manager of Retail Card Services, Personal Lending and Business Development for TD Bank, will outline why offering financing can be a way to achieve this, as well as discuss new and innovative financing tools, such as waterfall financing, that can help drive sales through year end and beyond in the new year. Through extensive work with many of the top furniture retailers in the industry, Mike has developed unique expertise in supporting them in their journey to foster customer loyalty on all sides of the market cycle. Key highlights will include: Quantitative insight from polling of furniture retailers, highlighting their views and key concerns for the year ahead; How financing can get new customers, particularly millennials, in the “door” (Or on the website, in these virtual times) by offering flexibility and the opportunity to afford a purchase where they otherwise may not; Ways financing can be used to drive repeat business by maintaining contact with the customer and offering data that can be used for targeted sales efforts; and new financing options beneficial to furniture retailers, such as waterfall financing which can provide access to financing options from multiple lenders at once.
