Getting Real: Bridging Online and Offline Shopping Experiences

With multiple social media platforms, online stores, brick-and-mortar locations, pop-up shops and radio and television commercials, both established and potential clients interact with your brand in more ways than ever before. Whether you’re working on your digital presence or your in-person brand and mission, continuity is key.

What is an Omni-Channel?
An Omni-channel brand experience makes sure that your brand, and the general shopping journey for your customer, is consistent and intuitive across all platforms—so customers can easily find what they’re looking for. It matters because there are now more ways than ever to shop, and customers will always use whatever form is most convenient for them. If they don’t live near a brick and mortar location, they’ll shop online at their computers. If they’re not near a computer and want to shop, they’ll take their business to your mobile site. And if they can’t find what they need in one channel, they’ll try another. Be prepared to close the sale no matter what.

With summer right around the corner, your store is sure to get more foot traffic than ever. But how can you turn people who just “wandered in to look” into long-term customers and clients? Surprisingly, your store layout may have more to do with it than you think. With more ways and places to shop than ever before, customers will be loyal to brick-and-mortar stores offering personal attention, convenience and above all, ease. Custom displays for retail can make a world of difference in your customers’ shopping experience. Read on to find out how to effectively incorporate displays into your floor plan.

Custom Retail Display

Make It Easy On The Eyes
Displays for retail are beneficial not only for your store (as easy, clean ways to organize bulkier products), but they also help customers locate the items they need the most. We recommend placing some of your store’s most popular items (don’t forget to update them each season) in bright, bold custom retail displays. And don’t be afraid to have a little fun in the process! If there’s a holiday or big film premiere coming up, why not order a customized display in the shape of an Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or movie character? It will not only show shoppers you’re with the times, but you could actually use your displays as a point of advertising. If they’re good enough, maybe shoppers will want to take selfies with them. Think of a hashtag and encourage your customers to post their pictures by featuring your favorites throughout the store.

Counter Displays — The Gear Store

Bring a sense of adventure to your gear counter display. If you run an outdoor gear shop (or if you’ve ever shopped at one) you know that often, it’s what you don’t buy that can be the difference between a fabulous trip and a complete nightmare. Forgetting to pick up an extra carabineer can squash the chances to climb. On the flip side, finding an item at the last second in the checkout line that combines several pieces of gear into one could mean eliminating the need to buy several heavy items that add extra weight to a pack. What’s the secret of successful outdoor stores? Two words: counter displays. Read on to learn more.
