Visual merchandisers play a very significant role in the sales and profitability of the retail stores.

Every progressing technology had considerably changed our shopping habits and behaviours; from the way we interact with our favourite brands to the way we research what to buy. With the internet at their finger tips, today’s shoppers are very savvy about your products, the prices and your competitors. If you don’t give your potential customers the opportunity to get what they want, then they can easily go to one of your local or international competitors.

First impressions are very important on the high street, and you get one chance to make a good first impression on your shoppers. You need to decorate your shop front to attract and lure customers into your store, and your high-street shop needs reflect your brand’s culture. It needs to provide the customer with a unique shopping experience.

Don’t forget there are probably thousands of ecommerce sites and online store ready to steal your business. Make sure that you give your customers something that they can only get in your store. Do remember to personalise their experience. Every customer wants to feel valued, unique and cared for when they enter your high street shop. So give recommendations based on their previous visits where possible. In doing so, not only will you expand your visual merchandising site to a personal shopping experience, but also you will position your brand as a trusted provider. Consumers turn to brands they trust first, those they have had a positive experience with, and over time this becomes a habit. Optimising your visual merchandising will have a positive impact to your brand as well.
