Increase Your Point of Purchase Sales
The latest research is surprising. Consumers are making purchase decisions in retail stores at an even higher rate than we thought previously. If you’re not doing POP, you’re cheating yourself a chance to seriously boost sales revenue.
How do you create a sales advantage in retail stores such as Walmart, Costco, Sobeys, Shoppers Drug Mart, Canadian Superstore, Canadian Tire, Longos, Staples, Best Buy and others? Try temporary corrugate POP displays – displays that make product accessible, disrupt routine and grab attention, build engagement and drive sales.
Winners Make Things Happen
POP means you’re stepping up to the plate to make things happen. Do you need the ultimate in display creativity to really jump up sales? Not really. Just making product accessible to shoppers in-aisle is enough to get results. However, simple doesn’t mean amateurish.
Can you capture attention and build engagement when your product sits anonymously on a shelf, crowded amongst competing brands where your unique selling proposition is drown in the noise? Of course not. You need to stand front and center away from competitor’s products.
From health supplements to electronics to kid’s toys, chocolates, soap, and pharma products, POP displays are presenting products more assertively to shoppers. Take a look at a few coroflot floor displays to visualize what’s possible today.
