The Importance of Store Communication in a World Where Communication Is Key

It’s 2017 and you would think by now that we’d understand communication more than we understand anything else, mainly because we use it every day. Sadly, that is not the case. We’re still learning how to communicate more efficiently in a world where technology is at our disposal.

There are a plethora of different types of communication, whether it be in friendships, relationships, or work, but today we’re going to focus on store communication. You might be asking yourself, why is store communication SO important? Well, for starters if everyone isn’t on the same page then there is room for error.

When something goes wrong, especially within a store you have to deal with the, “he said, she said” dilemma if nothing is left in writing. Again, another reason why clear communication in this environment is a necessity. Here are some tips on how to boost your stores internal communication.

Invest in Store Communication Tools

You can find a tool to help improve your store communication just by doing a quick Google search! There are so many tools out there that allow you to communication to all of your employees through one simple platform. For example, Retail Zipline allows users to send emails, documents and reminders to each employee, creating a space for everyone to communicate efficiently and effectively.

Download Chat Apps

The first app that comes to mind is Slack, arguably one of the best professional group chat apps among top professionals. It’s quick and easy and you can access it right from your cell phone. You can even create different group threads based on topics you need to discuss, happy chatting!

GroupMe is also another app you can use to keep in contact. It allows you to create different groups and send events, reminders, and react to each others messages.

Conduct Weekly Meetings

This might sound obvious but having weekly meetings will allow you to create a more efficient environment for your retail team. Sure technology is great but nothing beats a face to face conversation, especially when dealing with issues.

With all of these tips, improving your stores internal communication should be a breeze. They say communication is key and if everyone is on the same page, you can all move towards your main goal, making the store the best one out there.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
