'Just Browsing at The Mall?
That's What YOU Think!'
I spent all day out of town at a conference today.
And I'll be in sessions every day through next
Before I headed off to bed tonight, I wanted to
direct your attention to an excellent article I
read on the plane on Friday.
It's in the weekend edition of the USA Today
newspaper, and entitled...
'Just Browsing at the mall? That's what YOU think!'
It's a useful article on the process some successful
mall retailers have created to 'LURE' customers into
buying from them.
The article contains MANY ideas that can be 'borrowed'
by any cart or kiosk retailer to enhance their success.
It's probably still on the newsstands if you act quick!
'As you step in the door of a retail store... you're probably being LURED to shop and spend
in ways so SUBTLE you probably don't know what's
happening to you!'
'Retailers know HOW you'll approach a store... WHERE you'll hesitate, how to affect your MOOD,
how to pique your DESIRES, how to PLAY to your
'EVERYTHING... is meant in some way to get you to... SPEND!'
The article goes on to detail several methods
successful mall retailers use to CAUSE customers
You don't have to have a STORE to have a detailed
PROCESS for creating sales... many successful carts and kiosks do the same
It's one reason products sold by demonstration, or
presentation, are often SOOOO successful.
The sales PROCESS for items like this is 'scripted'... from the moment a customer approaches your
cart or kiosk... to the moment customers they get the product
out of the bag at home.
'It's like a broadway musical'...
... marketing expert Deborah Mitchell is quoted
in the article...
... 'Nothing was put into that musical that wasn't
'It's the same in a highly orchestrated retail
Do YOU sell via demontration or presentation?
If not, add an element of demonstration...
...you'll sell more, and to more customers!
