The Resilient Retail Game Plan Episode 89

Managing Different Revenue Streams with Fiona Fawcett

Podcast show notes

Throughout the course of this podcast, as part of my many presentations and in discussions with numerous clients, I’ve talked a lot about the importance of multiple income streams. In a world that’s constantly changing and with ever-evolving technology that repeatedly lowers the barriers to entry in regards to reaching your current and future customers, it’s vital that we all keep on trying out different things and looking at different ways of promoting our products – in doing so we can all hope to build and run an effective and efficient business.

In episode 89 of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, I speak to illustrator and founder of Plewsy, Fiona Fawcett. With a background in Graphic Design, Fiona started her business back in 2015 with the help of The Princes Trust, and after initially starting her small business journey selling wholesale, she’s now added direct-to-consumer to her list of revenue streams and is a perfect example of a business owner who has embraced different ways of selling to great success.

In this podcast, we discuss the importance of compartmentalising your time and how invaluable training yourself can be to the resilience of your business. We also discuss the renewed energy we’ve sensed around trade shows (post-lockdown), the value of interacting with your customers face-to-face, and how a hybrid model of selling offline and online is the future for a world where people want to buy less from big brands and more from people.
