Four Hidden Psychological Factors that Influence Consumer Purchase Decisions

Understanding the psychological underpinnings of shopping behaviors can help your company target potential customers more effectively. Experts in the field of marketing have conducted numerous studies involving the motivations and key values at play when consumers purchase items in the retail environment. These analysts have identified four basic factors that can affect the buying behaviors of consumers.

#1. General Environment
Consumers in attractive and well-lit retail environments typically are more apt to make impulse purchases. It is for this reason that a well-designed end cap display for stores can often boost sales to an impressive degree. In less attractive surroundings, however, these displays may not have the same impact. Tailoring your displays to the environments in which they will appear can help you maximize their impact in the diverse retail marketplace.

Five Signage Solutions to Complement Your POS Display Stand

In the retail environment, point of sale (POS) displays are a high visibility method for attracting the attention of consumers. As a result, the POS display stand tends to receive the lion’s share of media coverage and in-store acclaim. Retail signage, however, can be just as important in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for your customers and in providing them with the information they need to locate items in stores and establishments. At Creative Displays Now (CDN), we specialize in providing you with a full range of signage options designed specifically to suit the needs of your company. Here are five of the most popular items in our comprehensive range of signage options.

SOLUTION #1: Hanging Signs
Suspended on wires over large-scale displays of your products, hanging signs provide your company with added reach that extends from one end of the store to the other. Bright colors and scintillating movement can be real eye-catchers that can enhance visibility for your product lines and can boost your overall sales in retail venues. Using large fonts and consistent color choices can also increase the drawing power of these marketing tools.
