Brand Power: How Netting Some Recognisable Names can Boost Business.

Brand power. It’s undeniable. The recognisable swoosh of Nike or the immutable stripes of Adidas: powerful titans of visual language and a testament to consumer’s affiliation for the familiar.

A familiar swoosh is as imperative as a familiar, friendly face – the customer knows they are in familiar territory; they know what to expect and what they’re in for. It lends credence to your brand, your friendly face.

Making the Case for Out-of-Season Stock

      Comments Off on Making the Case for Out-of-Season Stock

It’s massively important, if not fatally critical, for a store to keep on top of the seasons and latest trends. Last year’s trends are this year’s problems, as your business will suffer as your customers will look to recreate their favourite celebrity looks elsewhere.

There is a case to be made, however, for out-of-season stock. Selling big parkas in the summer at discount or throwing bikini’s in the sale at winter can be a clever ploy at thrifty shoppers, looking to perpetually purchase in a state of discount as they lag 2 seasons behind for all their clothing buys.

Moreover, options are never ill-advised – some customers might be heading on holidays to different climates for instance.

Like most things in business, it’s about balance (not the financial kind, the normal kind). Obviously you want to maximise shelf space for the shiny new stuff, but leaving a little room for your faithful jackets that have served you well through the winter might not be such a bad move!

Tips in Design for Summertime Marketing

Use Bright Colors

Hideously obvious yet invaluably headed, the use of bright, popping colours is a summertime staple in marketing. Everything is simply more saturated and bright in the sun, and communicating this through your marketing bridges the gap between customer association and action.

On-Site Shoots

Be it the beach or the boulevard, summertime shoots are perfect for evoking those sunny vibes and demonstrating your product out on a field test so your customers know just how good it looks in the sun.

Company Culpability: Why ‘the customer is always right’ still holds true

      Comments Off on Company Culpability: Why ‘the customer is always right’ still holds true

Some might say there is an increasing entitlement in this world. That people want things now, not later; new, not old and flawless, not flawed.

So what do you do as a retailer if this reality holds true?

You raise standards. You meet expectations. You deliver now; you make sure it’s new; you make sure it’s flawless.

If you don’t, someone else will. In the age of Amazon, you better make sure your customer experience is a product-perfect, snappy-delivering never-ending satisfaction machine, or the only deliveries you’ll be making is your ass to a boot.

Remember: everything you do is for the customer – to make their experience as convenient and effortless as can be to stay competitive.

That is the only way to win their patronage.
