POP Display Ideas for Customizing Stock Floor Displays

Posted by Jim Hollen on Feb 7, 2017 2:30:00 PM

We are only a little more than a month into 2017, and it is already turning into the year of “I need it yesterday.” With compressed timeframes, less visibility, and fewer resources, retailers and brands alike are under the gun to implement merchandising programs faster than ever before.

Point of Purchase Design and Effective Visual Merchandising

Posted by Jim Hollen on Feb 2, 2017 2:30:00 PM

Often referred to as the “Silent Salesman,” visual merchandising and point of purchase design associated with retail displays should physically, mentally and even emotionally attract the customer all the way to the purchase point. Because of this, retail displays are not likely to be effective if they happen by chance. Rather, they should be the result of great thought, planning and design, based around the business, its products and the desired connection with the customer. With effective point of purchase design, retail displays can create a significant edge over the competition.

POP Display Conversion and Store Design

Posted by Jim Hollen on Jan 31, 2017 2:30:00 PM

When it comes to POP display marketing, “the squeaky wheel gets the oil,” is the big take-away.

Consider this: 2,473 shoppers were surveyed in a study of supermarkets by Citeman Network. Thirty-eight percent of the shoppers responded that, when they entered a supermarket, they always purchased an item they had never bought before. Why? Because the item was prominently displayed.  This speaks volumes about the importance of Point of Purchase marketing.

Combine this with the fact that, according to stasticbrain.com, the average American’s attention span has dropped from 12 seconds in the year 2000 to just 8.5 seconds in 2015 and, again, you can see that POP marketing has become not just a great marketing tool, but a real necessity. POP displays—in the form of last minute attention-getters and impulse strategies, are now the key to addressing ever-shortening attention spans. Taking convenience and combining it with an impulsive marketing strategy, creates a win-win for everyone, particularly when a certain brand or discount item is highlighted.

Wood Displays Continue to Grow in Popularity in Retail Merchandising

Posted by Jim Hollen on Jan 26, 2017 2:30:00 PM

Wood displays are continuing to grow in popularity for a number of reasons. First, customers are increasingly looking for POP displays that are authentic and natural. Second, the cost of wood displays manufactured in the USA is comparable to wood displays manufactured overseas, and the lead time is shorter. Third, the price of wood has been relatively stable over the last several years and is less likely to fluctuate wildly like we have seen with other materials like metal, aluminum and plastic as we documented in our recent blog entitled “Point of Purchase Displays: Supply Chain Chaos in China Creates Pricing Uncertainty.”

POP Displays and The Benefits of Secondary Placement

Posted by Jim Hollen on Jan 24, 2017 2:30:00 PM

If you are a brand, you know the importance of where your product is placed in a retail store. Counter display space by the checkout register, for example, is likely to generate more sales than if the same display were stuck in a dark corner in the rear of the store. Many brands starting out are given an opportunity to provide a freestanding display to help prove to the retailer that the brand deserves a permanent location within the retailer’s planogram. What often happens, however, is there is a sales drop-off once the product is placed inline since it is more difficult to stand out among the many other products in the gondola shelf lineup. POP displays, when used as secondary placement, can be effective in boosting sales and building brand awareness.

Check Out These Cool Eco-Friendly Bamboo POP Displays

Posted by Jim Hollen on Jan 19, 2017 2:30:00 PM

We always jump at the chance to design and manufacture POP displays out of bamboo. Bamboo is widely recognized as one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly materials on early. Bamboo’s properties are absolutely mind-blowing. What other material can grow 44” in a single day? Compare that to your typical hardwood which might take 50 years to grow to maturity (vs. 6 months for a bamboo tree). How about this one: The root system of a single bamboo tree can extend more than 120 miles- greater than the distance from New York City to Philadelphia or San Diego to Los Angeles.
