    I like the most that you’ve united them by tag Relatively Inexpensive!:) Sounds very honest.

    You didn’t mention pricing though. In fact, exactly the right pricing strategy that allows you to respond quickly to all market fluctuations, is a very powerfull tool that can noticeably increase your sales.

    There is Competera – relatively inexpensive platform – that will track your competitors prices, promotions and assortment, and notify you when it’s better to raise or lower price for each of your products. If you want to know more, feel free to leave us a message on our website 😉
