How to Increase merchandiser salary-Guide steps by step

We all know that this Industry still needs to revamp in terms of Organized way because we have only a few export houses who are dealing with everything in a  legit way.

but most of them are just using these loopholes to manipulate the system to make maximum profit by using these loopholes because there are no options for the people where they can approach to get resolve these issues.

A hard and bitter truth is -Due to the above statement the Employee’s scalability is very less compared to the company assets addition in their Portfolio.

Each department of the export houses is very important to execute any orders from Initial Inquiry to Final Dispatch of shipment.

1-Why Merchandisers are not able to scale their careers.
In our education system. you’ll never be taught this as a
subject “Mindset” building.

next level Merchandising Hierarchy.
8- Conclusion.

1-Why Merchandisers are not able to scale their careers.
In our education system. you’ll never be taught this as a subject ” Mindset ” building.

When someone enters into the world Job. you are all guided with a few important statements” work hard  but never told work smartly”

Give your 100% dedication but never look for rewards for yourself.

Generally, you always heard that our Industry season starts from August to Jan every year, After Jan most of the workplace started evaluating every department that how much work is still balanced with the Team and till how many months this work will be with them.

Based on that, they’ll start scrutinizing the manpower by showing them their shortages, rejection, quality issues & most importantly creating an atmosphere to fear a loss in every season.

So nobody will come up to them to ask them about their promotion(Hike in Pay).

If anybody would have taken this bold step to tell them, they’ll do their hike but this would be rare.

The reason why I’ve given the above narration is because of the below points.

Never leave your Hike for the sake any other person mistake

If you have worked hard whole year. Always ask them to increase your pay . That’s your right

2- Lack of confidence

Most of the time  “Fear of  Job loss “ will be the major reason that bound the person not to ask to get Hike.

It was happening because all the merchandisers were not tracked their performance and orders execution results. If you have all data with you, you can ask them based on the facts that you have documented with you.

Must do reverse costing after shipment. Through this way, you will be able to do an analysis of the profit and loss statement in your orders executed and you’ll find the error & their proper solution in your hand for this buyer.

Via doing these above steps. you will become more confident than others.

3-Not have their Goal defined

you must have your destination defined for yourself because if that is not defined then you must have short time goals like  2-years  goals.

Most of us never defined it due to this. You’ll never achieve the next level in your carrier.

Never Negotiate on your salary package but if you are dedicated & genuinely doing hard work.

4-Always be Trapped in Future Appreciation.

This is the most appropriate tool used for the employees who so ever are seeking & hoping growth in their current remuneration after your successful year of hard work & gave the best result for them.

Never agree with this trap. why would you compromise your prize for the sake of those ones who always do mistakes & say sorry?

because of those ones why would you suffer?

Identify yourself & reward yourself with these kinds of gifts.

5-First Scale yourself then look for others

Being a merchandiser! you should care first yourself as you are here for the job because you are getting paid for work done.

Help others but never compromise your benefits for someone who is your colleague or Indirectly put on your shoulders.

As our Industry is completely Un-organized because of the loopholes benefits most of them always show their companies at a loss just for their employees but their turnovers increase year on year to fetch the buyers with whom they’ll want to work.

6-Respected your Hard Labor Reward as well.

Since our childhood. you never realized that rewards will make you more efficient and do more hard work to achieve your next goal.

Everyone is here to make profits via others. In the same way, if you’ve to reward yourself, like a trip, go on a family vacation, visit some places with your dear ones.

This will ignite and build your confidence to achieve new heights in your carrier and rewarding yourself will enrich your mental statement to work harder and grow more quickly.

7-Track your whole year & Keep records to Evaluate for Scaling yourself to the next level Merchandising Hierarchy.

All the merchandisers are working very hard day & night. They don’t even care about the timing, their first priority always is to complete work and get the operations streamlined so, nothing will disturb their work & it continues to move on to the next successful point.

you all need to monitor yourself & your orders to do a quick evaluation of the performance which will be getting monitored once the year is completed.

A simple hack to this –Do keep track of the orders which you handled like. Initial costing/ Mid costing/ Final Costing / Reverse costing /Profits margins/track of your component costing.

This will help you to figure out your profit & errors areas where you need to work. Through this way, You have the exact number in your hand to evaluate yourself to specify your growth in terms of HIKE in your pay scale.

Never sacrifice your promotion for the sake of others’ mistakes. Keep yourself updated with records as per the orders handled and Make Theories on the orders which you shipped & Learn from mistakes.

I know this will be very awkward to make a theory based on the orders that have shipped but this will help you to start documenting your journey & this will become an interesting document which you can showcase while in the Interview.

Who knows this will take the shape of a Book which will be selling like hot selling cake.

Nobody knows what will be tomorrow but if you start doing this after some time you will see the results automatically in your life.

8-Conclusion-

In this article, I’ve tried to explain to you why most of the merchandisers were not able to achieve the levels of Merchandising Hierarchy.

Clearly explain the steps through which you will be able to overcome the traps & hurdles.

Rewarding yourself is the biggest gift that you can gift yourself for achieving new carrier heights.

Mindset and confidence will be the two parts of a single coin.

Start Saying No if someone is not giving you value exchange.

No Fields Found.

What is merchandising

As per google, this word “Merchandising is clearly indicating that it is a process to do promotion and display goods and sell them to the customers.

Do you really agree with the statement for merchandising?

If  Yes then, please take some time to think about your present profile.

I am not here to discourage anyone because I was also in the same situation when I was working as a merchandiser.

It is clearly a myth which was set in our mind. The older (spent time in work) will be considered a much more experienced person.

Above statement will decide your remuneration and designation but this isn’t applicable to all.

Believe me, this is just a myth which is in our mind. Nowadays everything is just done in a few clicks the only need is to upgrade your skills and ready for new technologies adoptions.

Do you really work as a merchandiser as per google definition?

No, not at all. 

It is very common to all of us that you’ve interviewed for your “Domain”  specifically but actually you’ll not work on your domain. 

It might be any reason but this is a real fact.

Due to such busy work in merchandising(Day to day work) you’ll forget to upgrade yourself in terms of the new skills development.

Once you’re on job most of the time would be passed away while doing follow ups but as usual it is the most irritating job for you all but this  has to be done at any cost.

I am not talking about me, it is applicable to all of us because we often believe that the company in which we are working will be  our best and last  company.

But truth is “NOTHING IS PERMANENT”

As soon you’ll understand fast it may not hurt you in the long run.

Have you ever realised that after a long hard work of the whole year. When time comes for the reward for the hard work which you did  for the company not up to mark as you are expected. Sometimes it will not give to everyone.

Moral of the statement is

 “Never Hesitate to ask for your reward if you had given your hard

labor to ship all the consignment on time

Nobody has revealed the truth that “Merchandising and Marketing” is two sides of a single coin.

 One side tells you the story of the whole work from “Query to final shipment”  and the other side will lead  you to “promote your product in a manner that it will become buzz” and set in the mind of people that this is something they are waiting for so long.

Every merchandiser has this ability and they can do it much more than this but due to security nature they’ll drop the idea to experiment it .

Since our childhood we’ve been taught that you’ll need to do a job but nobody ever met any person who told you to start something your own while doing your job and even most of the companies also not allow anyone to do this.

It doesn’t mean that I am against “JoB” it is the very easiest way to start earning but when you start something  your own that is really very tough because Starting will be very fascinating  but as soon the venture will move further ahead  it requires more attention & do all maximum by own.

But in Job !

You don’t need to  think whatever the task has been allotted to you,finish it & keep it calm till the new task or project will be not allotted to you.

In a job you’ll restrict yourself to earn more based on your capabilities  but whereas on your own you have many opportunities to earn more as per your capabilities.

Above statement is just to boost your confidence to take a step & start something for you.

Let’s talk about merchandising

Have you ever heard of Digital Merchandising? If not then start doing research this term 

Soon you will find some new answers for your self.

As you all are living in a very fast era where everything is very fast. On the next day a new technology invention is in progress to change human life and change the working culture of any Industry .

Lot’s of research is going on related to our Industry. Nobody  knows someday any new software will come (AI based) . This software will do 50 merchants’ work in just a few clicks .

If this happens, it will shatter your dream into PCs and on that day you will realise if you would have upgraded you with new skills it might harm you today.

Through this article I am going to explain you all the working planning of Initial tech-pack to final shipment be ready to learn.

This journey will be continued  for the next part ……

Time Vs Money


 Why I am saying this! Time Vs Money?

What is Essential for you Time Or Money? Balancing is not easy for Everyone.

This is not a story of you my dear. It belong to me also. Earlier, I was also in the same position in which you are in.

It can’t change my life in a few days. Still, I am learning & implementing the learning in my life and day to day my life is becoming as I wanted to be.

The reason, I am comparing this time vs money is because time always has much value but in this material world people always prefer first money but money is just a medium to buy to things.

From Money, you buy everything but can’t buy time. Once time moves ahead than no one can able to get back that time.

Gear up, yourself and think what you can do better for yourself because if you haven’t stepped might be it become very late. After couple of year ahead you will also say this “Kash Maine Kuch Suru  Kiya hota”. 

Once the time moves on! Nobody can change the history if possible then only you can improve your present so, your future will become better for the upcoming generation and for you too.
