Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 28 November 2013
In a recent blog post, Debra Jamieson - sales and marketing director at UK Point of Sale - offered a range of tips to home and DIY retailers looking to maximise sales in what has become a particularly challenging and competitive market. She noted that retailers have only a brief - and potentially crucial - window in which to catch the shopper's attention.
"Statistics from POPAI show that marketers only have 0.9 seconds to convince shoppers to see their promotional displays and, when there could be thousands of displays – big and small - in a single store, retailers must think carefully about how to effectively grab the shopper’s attention," she observed.
Ms Jamieson also added that the most successful DIY retailers that UK Point of Sale had worked with made use of point-of-sale displays to maintain a coherent and unique branding while simultaneously promoting individual products. In addition, Debra pointed out that outdoor point-of-sale displays and offers should be adjusted according to the prevailing weather conditions.
She also stressed the importance of using directional signage to help customers find their way around DIY outlets - which, she noted, can sometimes be confusing for some customers - and suggested that accessories such as supergrips could be used to ensure promotional messages are clear and easy to read for shoppers as they're walking along the aisles.
