As workforce challenges, supply chain issues, and inflationary increases continue, many businesses are looking for ways to reduce costs and become more efficient.
Here are five ways the Retailers Association can enhance your business and save you money:
1. Free human resources attorney
If you’re unsure how to handle a situation with one of your employees, Chris Hoyme with the Jackson Lewis law firm is available for free to answer your basic HR-related questions. This $565 per hour value is available at no cost to Retailers Association members – be sure to tell them you’re a member! Call Chris at 1-800-729-1441 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org .
2. Reduced cost shipping
Fuel surcharges and higher labor costs have increased shipping costs for many businesses. Retailers Association members can receive 40% off of shipping costs with FedEx Express and 30% off of FedEx Ground. Enroll for free at sdra.org and start saving money today!
3. Music Licensing
Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, event venues and other businesses that play music for their customers are responsible for purchasing a music license so singers and songwriters receive compensation for their work. Through our relationship with BMI, Retailers Association members receive a 20% discount on their BMI license agreement.
4. Dental Insurance
With 1.8% unemployment in South Dakota, many businesses are looking for ways to attract and retain quality employees. Some businesses are offering enhanced benefits, including dental insurance from Delta Dental. Retailers Association members receive preferred pricing for this cost-effective benefit.
5. Social Media Marketing
Advertising your business is more important than ever, and reaching potential customers on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and other forms of social media is a must. Through our partnership with Black Hills Social Media Marketing, Retailers Association members receive a quality service at a discounted rate.
These are just a handful of the money-saving services offered through the South Dakota Retailers Association. To learn more, call our office at 605-224-5050 or navigate to the Membership tab and click on Member Services.
