A Message from Our CEO
“It’s hard to believe that it’s almost November already! With the end of October only days away, the holiday season will officially be upon us. One of the most important holidays for small businesses across America is Small Business Saturday. Each year, the holiday falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year it is November 24th. Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to attract new customers and to showcase your business. If you haven’t started gearing up for the holiday, now is the time.
Take a few minutes to sit down and plan your Small Business Saturday Strategy. Make sure to set realistic goals so you are prepared come November 24th. Focus on providing a great customer experience by ensuring you have enough staff members to tend to the increased number of walk-ins and new customers throughout the day.
Here are a few suggestions for ensuring the day is a success for your business:
- Stock up on inventory so you don’t run out
- Plan promotions
- Ramp up your marketing efforts to get the word out
- Employ extra staff
- Extend your hours
Small Business Saturday is a huge opportunity to grow your customer base, so don’t miss out by not having enough capital. Fordham Capital can help your business with the funding you need for a successful holiday season. “
REVIEW OF THE MONTH
Fordham Capital Helps Client
Get Her Business Back On Track
Recently Fordham Capital was contacted by small business owner, F. Jackson. She had a very complex problem. Ms. Jackson’s company was in a difficult situation financially and she was close to bankruptcy. Howard Gelfand, Partner at Fordham Capital, reviewed her application and paperwork and came up with a solution that saved Ms. Jackson both time and money. He explained, “As partner of Fordham Capital, I try to help as many small to midsize businesses as I can by offering flexible and tailored financing options that can be funded very quickly with minimal paperwork. I understand firsthand the obstacles that businesses like Ms. Jackson’s face when looking to obtain the funds they need to grow. In her case, the situation was very convoluted. She had 5 different loans with 5 different companies. 5 different debits were hitting her account every month. I knew Fordham could help her by consolidating her debt. I’m so happy we were able to help Ms. Jackson get her business back on track.”
Ms. Jackson echoes the sentiment, “Howard Gelfand is not only professional, but a miracle worker. Our company was in a tight situation, close to drowning. Fordham provided an oxygen tank. In our situation we were up to 5 positions, just shy of a year from personal bankruptcy. Other companies promised to consolidate, but I got caught up in their false promises. My trust was pretty much gone when Fordham reached out to me. However, Mr. Gelfand assured he could work with us and true to his word we were funded after two days. Thank you to Howard and Fordham Capital!”
