DEALERS: What Are Your Seasonal Strategies?

1_PULSE.2NDPING.JULY

This month’s Pulse Report survey asks dealers how they manage the seasonality of their businesses, and what services and tactics they will employ this fall to generate offseason profit amid greater economic uncertainty. It also asks about expectations for sales activity with the upcoming fall boat show season.

Launched by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Baird Research, the Pulse Report survey monitors monthly retail conditions. It includes the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, which tracks retailer confidence.

Soundings Trade Only partners with Baird to disseminate the survey and report the results in the print edition of the magazine each month.
