Attending Glee, the leading garden and leisure industry show, was a great opportunity for Nathan Dodd to spot trends and anticipate products that will come onto the market in the near future.
The customer is the most important part of any business. Without sales, any business will go bust very quickly.
That's why M&M Timber is breaking with tradition and, instead of launching a raft of new products, will use Glee to judge what the market thinks about the company and what it has to offer.
Of late, M&M has been closely monitoring the rapidly changing buying patters of you, the customer.
And that is why they are particularly interested in what a leading retailer such as GardenSite with its garden centres and online shop has to say when they meet up at Glee.
Robert Hall from GardenSite points out that
'We're on the front line, the conduit between a supplier like M&M and the customer. So the feedback we receive is very important to M&M in developing their business strategy.'
With their sights set squarely on the future, M&M want to get a clear understanding of where the market is going so that it can redefine its product offering and marketing.
It seems that the public have welcomed subtle changes that have already been introduced.
The Home & Garden range of products has been refined and made more competitive. It is now more 'customer friendly', specifically designed to take changing consumer patterns into account.
With this in mind, GardenSite is happy to share its customers' views with one of the country's leading timber and garden product suppliers, and very pleased to continue to offer their products online.
