  19. 19. 5 Key Elements of a Successful Retail Display Product Placeme nt Measured Results Elements of Retail display Promotion Props Akshata M 19
  20. 20. Product    Identify the purpose of your retail display. Of course you want to sell more products—but first, get specific. Base your purpose on your target market and clients’ needs. You do not need to display all the items in your product line. Narrow your focus to a few relevant choices. Limit yourself to three or five products. Odd numbers are more appealing to the eyes. Be sure to include a variety of price points. Also feature testers and samples. Products that allow interaction increase the opportunity for a sale because most clients will not buy what they cannot try. Akshata M 20
  21. 21. Placement  Map out the location of your retail display. Dedicate your prime real estate—generally to the right of the entrance—to the featured display. Most clients will look and walk to the right when entering a room. Akshata M 21
  22. 22. Props   The most effective displays use the 80/20 rule of design: No more than 20% of the display should be props. Let your retail products be the stars and the decorations be the supporting cast. Select props that support the message or theme of your display. Props also can be used to add variety in height, texture and color to your display, which will draw attention to the products. Give yourself permission to try different arrangements of the products and props. Akshata M 22
  23. 23. Promotion   Don’t assume that simply creating a display will increase sales. Plan your promotional strategy. Start by thoroughly educating staff on the products and purpose of the retail display. The visual nature of a new retail display also makes it perfect for promoting on Facebook. Post photos and share information on the benefits of the products, and invite clients to stop in to see the new display and sample the products. Take advantage of online chatter to spread the word. Akshata M 23
  24. 24. Measure results  The key indicator—and primary goal—of your display is increased retail sales of the featured products. Measure results by tracking successful sales and the characteristics of their respective displays so that you can repeat them in the future. Other indicators of success may be more subtle, but should not be overlooked. Comments from clients— online and in person—and time spent interacting with the product are all indicators that your display is producing the desired result. Akshata M 24
  25. 25. Strategic retail planning  This is the process of developing and maintaining a strategic fit between the retail organisation’s capabilities and its changing marketing opportunities.  It relies on developing a clear corporate mission, supporting objectives, creating a sound business portfolio, and coordinating functional strategies. Utpal B 25
  26. 26. Case Study- Shoppers Stop   About Shoppers Stop Shoppers Stop is one of the first retail chains started in india in 1991 by the Raheja Group. It now boasts of 27 retail outlets across the country and is one of India's largest retail chains, having expanded from apparel and accessories to home furnishings and books under the Home Stop and Crossword Brands. Other Brands under the Shoppers Stop umbrella are MotherCare, Desi Cafe, Brio, Nuance, Arcelia, Timezone and Hypercity. Utpal B 26
  27. 27. The Challenge  Executives at the Shoppers Stop Group noticed their sales falling into the 80:20 pattern with loyalty card customers despite being only 15% of the base contributing over 70% of the revenues of Shoppers Stop.  The Group realized that since they have data on loyalty card holders, if they could understand who the customer really is, what she buys, when she buys and why, they may be able to fine tune their offerings to provide the customer a better experience and increase their share of wallet.  Utpal B 27
  28. 28. The solution    Shoppers Stop conceptualized 'Project Drishti', a data warehouse and mining project in 2007 and launched it in 2008 way ahead of competition. The objective of the project was to streamline data obtained from customers across all its stores and loyalty programs and convert it into analytics that could be used for decision making. Project Drishti led to the Group being able to identify and understand their target segments across various stores and programs and create meaningful targeted campaigns for their bigger spenders. It also enabled the company to identify cases where multiple stores in the same city were losing business to each other instead of external competitors. While the sales increase and customer base expansion achieved by Shoppers Stop till date is important, what is most important is the fact that Shoppers Stop has equipped itself with the weapon for the future- "Customer Intelligence." Ad this weapon will keep it ahead of competition till competitors do a catch up and build Utpal B 28 smarter intelligence.
