A list of seemingly endless custom options are available at Saint Louis Closet Co. to ensure your new closet system is both functional and beautiful, both space-saving and eye-catching.

Saint Louis Closet Co. Pantries!!

Second to the master closet, pantries are on the top of homeowners’ lists to organize with customized shelving and accessories; this is no surprise since the kitchen is often considered “the heart of the home.”

Where does everyone wind up at a party…in the kitchen. According to Closets Magazine, when touring model homes, visitors spend more time in the kitchen than any other room in the home.  Saint Louis Closet Co. has noticed that with the increase in popularity of purchasing in bulk from large box stores, there is more and more focus on storage of foods, paper goods, and even excess dishes and appliances. Saint Louis Closet Co. custom closets can truly make a difference in your pantry.

Maximizing your kitchen pantry with corner shelving, platter dividers and adjustable shelving for the varied size items stored in pantries can make overall kitchen storage simpler. Chrome pull-out wine racks store wine bottles at a 15-degree angle to ensure corks remain moist in storage. Pull-out chrome baskets in various size are perfect for paper goods, chips, and recycling. And don’t forget tray shelves and basket-rimmed shelves for canned goods and small boxes.

Once you’ve realized there’s a place for everything in your Saint Louis Closet Co. pantry…then everything will be in its place in your kitchen!  Saint Louis Closet Co. offers free in-home design consultations for all areas of your home. Call us at (314) 781-9000 or visit us online at www.stlouisclosetco.com.

Business Tips from St. Louis Small Business Expert Jennifer Q. Williams

Small Talk on KTRS Tune into KTRS 550AM on The McGraw Milhaven Show and to hear owner Jennifer Q. Williams talk Small Business.  Being an award-winning business leader in the St. Louis Business Community for over 24 years, Jennifer will talk Small Business!! Tips on getting your business started, turning an idea into a business, what tools you need to start, run and grown your Small Business.  According to SBA Small Businesses make up 99.7% of all employer firms.

7/5/14  St. Louis Small Business Expert, Jennifer Q. Williams discusses with McGraw Milhaven on How to Get Business, How to Get Your Phone to Ring.  Tell people what you have that others don’t, send out press releases on a regular basis, remember customers need to hear your company name 5-7 times before they remember.  Make sure to stay on top of your competition and know what they’re doing.  You want to Target Market the small surrounding area your business services and Blanket Market the larger surrounding area for name awareness.  Constantly work on, revise and grow your marketing plan to change with what’s working and not.  Don’t forget Social Media.

5/15/14  St. Louis Small Business Expert, Jennifer Q. Williams talks with McGraw Milhaven about Blogging, Facebook, Twitter and Newsletter Ideas for Small Business.

Blogging, Facebook and Twitter are great ways to generate business and turn existing customers into repeat customers.  Some key components of this type of communication:

1.  Don’t sell…this is a great way to disseminate information in a non-sales way.  No pressure and offering great helpful information.  Save your sales for your sales force and your brochures.

2.  Connect with and keep in touch with past clients.  This form of communication will keep your past and existing customers thinking of you, even when they don’t need your services…referrals!

Great topics to consider…Be an expert on your product or service, Review a book or product your customers would find helpful, Highlight new products and how they can help, Top 10 Lists, How to Articles, Take a survey and share your results, photos, feature new employees, promote specials, host networking events, etc.

4/24/14  St. Louis Small Business Expert, Jennifer Quinn Williams talks about Creating Raving Fans for your Small Business not just satisfied customers!  book, “Raving Fans” by Ken Blanchard and Sheldon Bowles.

“Your customers are only satisfied because their expectations are so low and because no one else is doing better.  Just having satisfied customers isn’t good enough anymore in today’s competitive marketplace, you have to create Raving Fans.”

The cost of getting new customers in the door is getting more and more expensive everyday.  Let your Raving Fans do the work for you.

Decide what you want for your business and it’s service…discover what your customers want then deliver that plus!

WHY?  Studies show that a satisfied customer will tell 2-3 people about his/her experience with your company.  A dissatisfied customer will share their bad experience with 8-10 people and some will push that number to 20.  But here’s your real opportunity…an unhappy customer will become extremely loyal if you fix their complaint and do it quickly. 80% of these customers will come back to you if you’ve treated them fairly.  That percentage rises to the upper 90’s if you respond immediately.

Everyday you have the chance to transform your mistakes into returning customers and everyday you have the chance to go above and beyond and create Raving Fans.

2/5/14 St. Louis Small Business expert, Jennifer Williams talks about the importance of Mentoring in Small Business.  Define Mentor – An experienced or trusted advisor!  Six tips to finding the right mentor:

1.  Determine your needs, remember your needs will change as your business grows.

2.  Take time to network, not only to generate sales, but to meet potential mentors.  This will help you decide who and what you need.  Great places to network include women’s events, chamber events, local speaking engagements, etc.

3.  Listen MORE, talk less!  Given your enthusiasm about your particular business or product, it may be hard to listen and take advise from someone outside your industry.

4.  Be ‘mentor able’ – Be willing to consider other ideas that may not match your opinions.  Look for other opinions and be willing to think outside the box.

5.  Be flexible.  Don’t assume a mentor will have to stick with you for the entire life of your business.  Mentors can come and go based on your needs.  Some mentors may help you with future planning, some may help with advertising, and some may just be there for you to bounce ideas off of.

6.  Thank you mentor!!  They don’t want money, but their time is extremely valuable, so please let them know you appreciate it.

Small Business Talk with Jennifer Williams

Tips on getting your business started, turning an idea into a business, what tools you need to start, run and grown your Small Business.  According to SBA Small Businesses make up 99.7% of all employer firms.

10/17/13 #SMALLBIZTALK show tips:  Define your target customer – be specific!  Don’t just say “all women.”  Say “all women, ages 35-60, who own a home, live in the Metropolitan St. Louis Area, with a household income of over $60,000.”  This will allow you to better target your advertising and allow you to grow your product offerings to a specific market.  It also helps you keep on track with business plan, marketing plan and growth plans.  Create a BRAND…this does not mean design a logo – although having a logo is part of it.  A BRAND is the entire experience a customer has with your company from the beginning to end.  It includes everything from how you answer your phone to your employees uniforms and vehicles.  Your website, your logo, your stationary and business cards, your advertisements, the music played in your business, etc all work together to create and maintain your BRAND.

71% of Americans view small businesses more favorably than any other institution in America because they are seen as a positive influence on our country.  Why do people like  Small Business so much?

1.  Their services and products are often unique and their customers are very defined.

2.  Small Businesses are also often regarded as being involved with their local communities and give back.

3.  Small Businesses are agile and can change with the times quicker and adapt to the changing economy and customers needs faster than large businesses.

9/19/13 #SMALLBIZTALK show tips: Great overall resource, visit SBA.Gov for help and guidance for all small business questions.  A Small Business is a business that is privately owned and operated, with a small number of employees and relatively low volume of sales.  Government determines small based on industry, sales, etc.  Small Business Administration stats show 1/3 of all new businesses fail in first 2 years due to lack of funds, lack of planning, growing too fast and competition. Prevent failure by the following steps: Be clear on why you want to start a business, determine your type of business (ie: manufacturing or service), research and write a Business Plan, determine who your customers are, set in place financing, sales and marketing – get your customers.
