Retail digital signage is an essential tool to attract customers and boost sales. Here are specific suggestions on how retailers can use a variety of digital signage solutions to spruce up their stores this Mother’s Day.
1. Create a mesmerising Mother’s Day theme
Jazz up your retail store with a celebratory Mother’s Day theme. Think pink and purple roses, hearts, floral hues. Catch the attention of passers-by and create maximum impact with mesmerising, eye-catching store-front digital signage displaying a warm Mother’s Day message or video. In addition in in-store décor, a video wall can play heartwarming clips of mothers with their children, or videos of children wishing “Happy Mother’s Day”, to further enhance the ambience.
2. Curate a Mother’s Day gift guide
Help shoppers decide on the ideal present by rounding up your best Mother’s Day gifts. Curate a gift guide and make it readily available on in-store tablets or shelf-talkers. Group gifts by persona, price, and category. Increase average basket size by recommending complementary products and upselling.
3. Improve product visualisation
In addition, in-store tablets facilitate purchase decisions by improving product visualisation and showcasing product demonstrations., while increasing customer engagement and generating product interest. Besides showing product functionalities and benefits, tablets can also display associated product options and availability.
4. Launch new products and promote sales
Harness the capability of digital signage solutions to draw attention with vivid imagery and stunning displays. Make mums feel extra special! Utilise retail digital signage to announce the launch of new products and special promotions in celebration of Mother’s Day.
5. Design a social wall
User-generated content is a great way to build brand awareness. In fact, research shows that 44% of shoppers are influenced by social media when making purchases. Build a social wall in your store and create hype about the latest products or hottest trends. Display Twitter, Facebook and Instagram channels where your customers are having conversations to increase engagement, encourage followers and likes, and build brand loyalty. Infuse your social feeds with Mother’s Day-inspired imagery and weave in product recommendations.
6. Implement a countdown timer
Did you know? 48% of people shop for Mother’s Day in the last week before the actual day. Hence your retail strategy will play a crucial role in the success of your last-minute sales.
