  1. 1. In an increasingly intensifying marketplace, you have to differentiateyourselves from your competitors. Here at MPC, we understand acompanys most valuable asset is their brand.The bigger a company grows, the harder it becomes to ensureconsistency at every point of the consumer journey.Effective merchandising will enhance a brands exposure and increasesales. It is also extremely important for protecting and growing marketshare.Recent research shows that 20% of the decision to purchase is logical andbased on facts and 80% is emotional. This illustrates the importance ofan attractive and well executed merchandising program.A successful advertising campaign can prompt consumers to actively visitretailers, but once there, if they cant find the product they are lookingfor, or a competitor has a display with more impact, the time and moneyspent on advertising and developing the brand is wasted.Retailers are also feeling the pressure. Many require merchandisingsupport plans as part of their review process and to support ranging.Showing you have a strong merchandising team produces gains in sales,but also in space, position and displays offered by the Trade.
  2. 2. The retail world is a fast paced and ever-changing environment.When a product hits the retail stage, this is the time when it canbecome difficult to control consistency through all the variouspoints of presence. This can be due to a number of reasons•the sheer number of retailers,•product slow to shelf•franchisees with their own ideas•the POS and product being poorly displayed .Something as simple as cleanliness can have a huge bearing on ashoppers experience with your brand and thereby effect sales.Without a team of dedicated specialists, merchandisingcompliance can be as low as 52%. This means that 48% ofretailers may not be reaching their sales potential.Outsourcing a team of merchandisers means you can avoidsituations such as this, and your sales and marketing teams canfocus 100% on driving sales.
