Once a product makes it to market, many people truly believe they have hurdled the hard part. And in a lot of respects, they’re right. The discovery was done, the market analysis was conducted, competitive research reviewed, trial runs completed, Q&A finished, pricing, manufacturing, branding…there is so much that goes into even just getting a product to market. So congratulations on making it this far. That really is quite an accomplishment.
But we’re here to tell you…now is not the time to slow down. Because there is more work to be done. How products are marketed once they hit the retail shelves is one of the most important (and we actually think fun) parts of the process.
If you sell products in a convenience store, it’s important to really think about the typical customer who’ll be shopping, as well as the transaction type they’re likely expecting during their visit. First and foremost, displays should be, you guessed it: convenient.
So what does that mean to you? We’ve got some great ideas to help you take your product from shelved to sold-out, simply by implementing C-store counter displays.
If you’re selling food products, you don’t need us to tell you just how important it is that your tasty treats are displayed on an effective and proper food display stand.
But how do you find that perfect display that’s just right for your delicious items?
Great question…we believe wholeheartedly that not all displays are created equally. So read on to learn everything you need to know about selecting the perfect food display that represents, and more importantly, sells your brand.
Typically, your display is going to be one of the first things your customers will notice when browsing your retail space. But even if it’s not prominently placed (meaning, at the front of your marketplace), it still (perhaps even more so) needs to be a show-stopping sight once your customers find their way to it inside your store.
In the world of retail, creative displays can be the name of the game. Everything from size, to placement, to what product you showcase can affect your overall profit. Knowing not only what to display, but also how to best display it, is important. And, like most things in business, you need to weigh the cost factor. Is bigger and fancier and showier always the best route? Not necessarily. Sometimes, it’s the simple things that get the job done.
Check out our top 3 fave simple but effective retail displays that we recommend for 2018.
Simple display #1: The pallet display
From clothing to cat food, the pallet display is the ultimate in simply-designed displays. Completely customizable, you can modify everything from the shape and size to the wrap and messaging. And they’re available with merchandiser trays and interior support structures when you need something heavy duty. If you have a product to display, you can pretty much count on it looking brilliant on a pallet display. And the best part is pallet displays can even be stocked and shipped ready to go. From warehouse to store floor, ready to sell. The pallet display might just be our favorite display option.
WHY DO WE LOVE THEM? Pallet displays are practical in design without being over the top. They’re also great for a wide-variety of items, but still easily customizable.
Retail displays can be the showstoppers every retail establishment needs to set them apart from the competition. And boy, is there a ton of competition out there these days.
With online shopping trends on the rise and no end in sight, brick and mortars need to do everything they can to be better than the shop next door. In 2017, nine major US retailers closed up shop, claiming bankruptcy…and that’s in addition to the previous nine that did so in 2016…
18major retailers have filed for bankruptcy in the last two years! Think about that! Do you know what it takes to keep your doors open?
Today, retail establishments have to be better, brighter and busier than ever to ensure success in the physical market space. Have you ever thought about how your retail displays can help you do just that? More to the point, have you thought about how displays are a part of the equation? How long do you keep your POP retail displays up? What are the tell-tale signs that a display is old and tired? When (and how) should you roll out new displays?
