BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (PRWEB) December 19, 2015
With a consumer-goods career spanning more than 23 years, author Regina Blessa releases her practical approach to ensuring a retail store’s success with consumers in the new book “No-Fail Retail: Merchandising Techniques for Stores” (published by iUniverse).
The book, a simple, practical and illustrated guide, explores topics like merchandising techniques, retail promotions, consumer perception, impulse buying, store environment, visual merchandising, customer care and promotional workforce.
Blessa is founder of IEV, a retail studies institute that leverages the power of merchandising, shopper marketing and customer management to clients and students. In that capacity, she has worked with the world’s leading companies, such as Pfizer, Bayer, Coca-Cola, Walmart, Nestle, Kellogg’s and Colgate.
An excerpt from “No-Fail Retail”:
When we pay more attention to advertising than to merchandising, and consumers get to the stores and don’t find the products that were advertised, we won’t just be missing a few sales. We’ll be throwing away all the money spent on manufacturing, advertising agency and media, serving up our customers on a platter to our competitors.
