Bobbi Orris became a Retail Sales Promotion Consultant 25 years ago. She’s been doing work for our clients ever since. Last year she told me a story you might like.

Bobbi went through our new consultant orientation in 1993. She was convinced my program wouldn’t work. But, she needed a job and we offered her one. So … she worked for a dance store … then a bridal store… then a department store … then on and on. She was bringing in big crowds of shoppers and huge sales for our client’s stores. … Even she was amazed! Problem was … she still didn’t know why it worked! Then one day she was in Mall of America looking down on the amusement park … watching crowds of customers in stores. All of a sudden it dawned on her. We attracted shoppers because we made shopping fun … fun for customers, fun for employees and fun for store owners. Didn’t make any difference whether we were doing a grand opening, stock reduction or a store closing. It was always fun. The shoppers came in droves and the stores minted money.

Once she figured out why it worked, she really got excited. Started creating her own Special Events.
More stuff to make it fun for shoppers. She became our Queen of Special Events. No! … You can’t have her in your store. She’s too busy with our clients.

Small retailers who are succeeding, typically sell a very high quality product, they market to a niche customer, and they provide an extraordinary level of service that the “big box” stores can’t match. They make their store the place to be and understand the numbers behind the business. The advantages and the knowledge you can gain by knowing your market, knowing your customer and building a strong financial strategy, may help you rise above your competition in ways you never thought possible. Retailers, you must learn to Bury Your Competition…. Yes they deserve it!

Fight where you can win! Identify where you CAN compete. Pick your battles wisely and set up a plan to determine your store’s strengths & weaknesses.

Know your market: You can dominate your market when you define your physical market. Generally your customers will come from a 5 mile radius around your store. Use data to define your market area. Map the locations your customers come from. Define your market as the area with the greatest concentration and contains at least 75 percent of your customers. Once you define your area, spend your marketing dollars in that target area only.

Know your customer: You must know how customers found out about your store. Record their name, address, email and phone. Consider tracking purchases by customer. Find out how they want to be contacted. You can do this at check out by training your staff to ask the right questions. Know your business: Stay financially sound. Control your expenses and solve problems quickly. The financial information you keep on your store tells the story of how your business is doing.

Control your inventory: Inventory control is the single biggest reason that retailers fail. Sustain your gross margin and track your inventory turn over rate.

How to Conduct a High Impact Sale

A Detailed Plan
A four-day high-impact sales event takes a great deal of planning and coordination. Success depends on all elements of the sale being well-integrated, and precisely executed. Everything must work together.

Advertising must be timely and powerful in order to get customers lined up at the door. And that’s just the beginning. You must also get those customers into the store, get them browsing the merchandise, put products in their hands, and ring up the sales on the register. Advertising, merchandising, pricing, signage, sales assistance, and checkout procedures must all work together flawlessly to generate an exceptional volume of sales.

This guide provides a plan that produces exceptional results for retailers who execute it
completely and correctly.

WARNING:
YOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO CUT CORNERS AND LEAVE OUT IMPORTANT
PROGRAM ELEMENTS I ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO.

If you do not implement the sale according to the plan I have outlined, it will not produce the results you expect. One of the reasons our full program with an on-site consultant works so well, is that an experienced professional who knows how to make the program work, is on hand to ensure every step of a complicated campaign is implemented correctly.

Our regular program calls for a campaign that lasts as long as eight weeks and generates sales volumes that reach two to three times normal sales over thateight-week period of time.

“We know that we could have done most of these things ourselves. But it was all the facets of the program being tied together and done thoroughly that made the promotion so successful. Besides, we were so busy with sales we would never have had the time to follow through the way our consultants did. We were amazed a promotion could run so long.” G.A. Wright Client–Gayle Chinn

The sale plan described here calls for four selling days. It starts on a Wednesday, with a
pre-showing for preferred and local customers. The pre-showing is advertised with direct mail. On Thursday, the sale opens to the general public and is advertised in the newspaper or with other mass media. One of the secrets of attracting door-buster crowds is creating curiosity by closing the store for one day during the preparation period. So Tuesday, before the Wednesday pre-showing, the store should be closed. Signs are placed in the windows announcing the date and time of the sale opening.

The first day’s revenue will more than make up for any sales lost by closing for a day. The pre-showing is an opportunity to reward your best customers. If you have a significantly large preferred-customer mailing list, you may want to mail only to that list. However, in most cases, it makes sense to supplement your preferred-customer list with a local residential list.

You want to be able to advertise that everything in the store is on sale. It’s important to offer all merchandise at prices slightly below market. It isn’t necessary to discount significantly. The objective is to lower margin while increasing the rate of sales enough that total gross margin dollars actually increase.

Detailed guidance concerning the implementation of each aspect of this sale program is
provided in the following pages. I recommend a four to five week planning period prior to opening day. This is generally a sufficient amount of time to obtain all the necessary materials and to produce and place all the advertising.
