After the shock to the economy by COVID-19, sales techniques are more important than ever to attract customers to your store. Whether they are gained by e-commerce or by crossing the threshold at your store locations, having a strategy is important. Loyal customers may chat you up through Facebook or other social media, but that may not be enough advertisement to make revenue to pay storefront rent. Getting new foot traffic amounts to displays and signs that are attractive enough to grab your potential customer’s attention. The choices to make your retail shop exterior stand out all range in the realms of visual devices.
Bringing in customers off the street means having a display that is unique and welcoming. Opening the business front door begins with creating curiosity. Getting your customer in the door means creating a clear brand from the display windows to the back service wall. This way your customer experiences direct contact with the emotional buzz that comes with product selection and sales. The singular attraction that you can make your store into amounts to a few simple additions.
Signage – Size matters. Focus on creating genuine interest in your product by choosing a sign that would grab a customer’s attention. Enhance the brand encounter with humor and artistry.
Displays – For popular retail communities, try creating a story in your front display window with a sense of whimsy. This approach is perfect to encourage impulse sales. Customers also are prone to linger a little longer between the shelves and at the cash register.
Lighting – Without another thought, tend to clutter and dust before customers spot the front door. Create beautifully lit displays to clearly see merchandise in an open organization. Use the strategies approached in a front window as a template in the rest of the store. Local commercial electrical services can enhance your store’s overall presentation.
Lastly, follow up with a customer as they walk through the door. This precarious situation can either hook or release a sale. The bottom line is to always aim for delivering a remarkable shopping experience. This includes nailing a sales delivery that comes after confirming customer interest at the front door. Having representatives ready can secure interest, a sale, or a word-of-mouth advertisement. Begin with an exterior that is attractive and welcoming to create interest in your product; after that, let excellent customer service follow through with a sale.
