A Message from Our CEO
“With October approaching, the temperature dropping, and the lazy days of summer behind us, now is the ideal time to get ready for the 4th quarter. By this time of year you should have a pretty clear picture of your business goals for the remainder of the year. If you don’t, it’s not too late to put together a plan so you can end the year strong. Set aside some time to think about what you have accomplished in the first 3 quarters of the year and what you still would like to accomplish by the end of the 4th quarter. It is important to get organized, set goals, and to get focused as the busy holiday season will soon be upon us.
You can read more about our Top 3 Ways to Gear Up for the 4th Quarter below.”

Fordham Capital’s Top 3 Ways
to Gear Up for the 4th Quarter
The 4th quarter is rapidly approaching and now is the time to start planning for the holiday rush. Here are our top 3 ways to gear up for the 4th quarter:
Stock up on inventory
Sales are always booming during the holiday season. You don’t want to run out of products, supplies or equipment at the height of the holiday rush. Make sure to stock up now so you are ahead of the game and don’t fall behind on your inventory.
Hire holiday staff
Prepare now by making sure that you have enough employees to keep up with the demands of the holiday season. If your busiest months are November and December, now is the time to start posting job ads and begin the hiring process. This will ensure that you have hard-working and dedicated staff on hand when the rush begins.
Increase marketing efforts
Avoid missed opportunities by increasing your marketing efforts for the 4th quarter. Ramping up your activity on social media or creating a new email marketing campaign can help boost visibility and sales.
One of the largest challenges in gearing up for the 4th quarter rush is securing funding for your business. We can help! Over the past ten years, Fordham Capital has provided over 3,000 small-to mid-sized businesses the short-term capital they need to grow.
