You finally have a better, smarter and more successful way to run your clearance sale. You are feeling peaceful, relaxed, in control and lately, you are sleeping so much better, because...
You have a plan, a road map and the perfect vehicle to get to your destination:
A store with the right kind of fresh inventory, at the right time
The freedom of paying yourself a CEO worthy salary and to buy the kind of inventory your customers are hungry for
A team that works together towards a common goal
You have a Passion and it is not your fault the results are missing
You became a store owner because you have a passion, and you have a desire to share that passion with others.
You feel like you are working so hard - and you are - and yet you are not seeing the results you keep hoping for.
Your store (and backroom) is full of inventory, and your bank account is running on empty.
But hear this: It is not your fault.
Because while you were learning about running a retail store, no one told you that there is a science to moving your inventory out strategically and profitably.
Listen, you wouldn't have made it this far if you didn't have some serious grit and determination.
What you didn't know (until now) is that you are making some very common mistakes, which are keeping you stuck with way too much inventory, a near empty bank account and vendors calling for payment...
As hard as you try, every season the hole gets a little deeper, and a little harder to climb out of.
But it doesn't have to continue this way.
The time to make a change is now.
There is another way.
One that is tried and tested and has been proven to work with hundreds of my private clients.
They are retailers who just like you, struggled trying to move old inventory and pay their bills. Making many of the same mistakes, which hurt them and their profit margins.
Until they made a change. By following the RETAILMavens Clearance Sale formula, they now have the tools and the road map to breeze through each clearance season, making more profit and moving more products.
... to go into your store, the first day of your clearance sale, feeling confident and in control?
Your merchandise has been rearranged to entice the best sale shoppers, and the right markdowns have been taken on the right products, ensuring that your profit margins are protected.
Your staff is prepped, motivated and ready to reach your sales goal (oh and that’s an exciting sales goal) - together as a team.
Your online store is set up to take full advantage of shoppers browsing online sales.
Your marketing has been purposefully planned and executed to reach more people and build genuine excitement around this sale.
And your customers are lined up, ready to clear out your inventory...
I'm Cathy, founder of RETAILMavens. I have been exactly where you are now. I found myself with a store (and then two, and then THREE) full of inventory and the end of the season looming.
My account was drained and vendors were calling me for payments I didn't have. There were days I just felt like crying. I kept working harder, but my situation just didn't get any better.
Until I realized the mistakes I was making. Mistakes that were robbing me of the profit I was striving for.
I started studying consumer psychology. I tested, then analyzed, then tweaked the results until I finally had the exact steps to run a consistently successful clearance sale. Season after season.
And the relief I felt was immense.
When I finally sold my three stores (so that I could focus full time on my true passion - Helping indie retail owners make more profit and get better sleep), I started implementing these secrets with every client I worked with.
And they have all seen the same success I enjoyed for so many years.
But I realized that helping my private clients just wasn't enough. It is such a challenging time to be a small, independent retailer right now.
Yet it is also a time ripe with incredible potential, if you know how to navigate it correctly.
It is more important than ever to fine tune your clearance sale and to not carry the heavy burden of excess inventory.
That's why I have made my Clearance Sale Secrets available to everyone.

You Have Questions - I Have Answers
Is RETAILMavens Clearance Sale Secrets geared towards online stores as well as brick and mortar stores?
Yes, the scientific inventory strategies we teach apply to both online and brick and mortar stores. E-commerce stores have to keep their inventory fresh and clear out old stuff too, right?
Online stores follow the same process for best success, the implementation is just a bit different. The worksheets are more geared for brick and mortar because of what's involved in running that type of business.
But ALL retail needs to follow the scientific inventory strategies we teach in order to make the most sales and profit from your inventory purchases.
Cash is tight, I'm worried about spending more right now
I understand, I was there too. But what you are doing right now isn't working, you wouldn't be here if it was. And continuing on this path will only make things worse.
This program was designed to bring you the cash you need. But in a strategic way so you don't erode your profit margins and deplete your best sellers.
That means you will keep more of the money you earn and move out the stale inventory that is tying up your cash.
The secrets you will learn will pay for this program many times over, starting with the very first time you run your clearance sale.
And once you buy it, it's yours to use over, and over again. Rinse and repeat. Every season. This is one investment that will keep bringing you returns every time you use it.
What if it doesn't work for me?
The stakes are high, I know. You stand to lose a lot if you can't turn things around. That's why I tested this program with hundreds of retail owners like you (including myself), with every type of store (maker stores, gift stores, clothing stores, toy stores, shoe stores and many more). And it's because they have all seen such success that I am now offering it to non-clients.
If you follow my steps. It will work.
In fact, I am so confident it will work for you, that I'm willing to guarantee it with my 30-day Money Back Guarantee.
I'm already juggling so many things, I don't have time to learn a whole new process
I get it. Store owners are the hardest working people I know! I was one too, and I now have the honor of working with them every day.
That's why I designed this program to be easy to digest and quick to implement.
Each module is short and to the point. Leaving you lots of time to take action.
The Action Steps in each module will keep you focused on the most important things you should do next.
And once you have run your first clearance sale using my RETAILMavens Clearance Sale strategy, you will know exactly what to do next time! Saving you even more time.
