Helping Consumers Spend... With You

How many times have you gone into a store to look for a gift without knowing exactly what you want? Exactly.

It's well known that part of a sales person's job is to help a customer make a purchasing decision., but at traditionally busy times of the year- like Christmas- there's not always the staff available on the shop floor to do this. Here's where a strategically placed Point Of Sale product video display can help.

Why not play a visually stimulating, sequence of thought-starters? Gift suggestions could be grouped into the types of typical recipients- Mum's, Dad's, older relatives, age-groups of kids, co-workers, etc. Or bracketed into price ranges- "Gifts for under $10/$30/$50/$100 ".

These needn't be detailed advertisements for product, just a hand-full of suggestions for each recipient, or from each price group, to get the customer thinking. You've helped your customer solve a problem and made sales you might have missed out on.
What a great customer service!

Anyway,the benefits to your business are:
- It's not reliant on how motivated or available the sales team are.
- You have complete control over the delivery and content of the message.
- Capitalizes on your external marketing
- Your business makes more sales.
