First Impressions Do Matter!

Coach hands Seven Seconds

It takes seven seconds for customers to make the first critical decision about your product. Years of product design, development and marketing often come down to a mere seven seconds. In the retail world, that's a small window of time to capture a shopper's attention.   Once you've won these valuable moments of attention with the right story, you may win another two minutes, five minutes or even twenty. Keep in mind, the first seven seconds will make or break your story.   Are you still with me?

Therefore, it is evident retailers must incorporate visual merchandising strategies to attract customers to their stores. When designed properly, visual merchandising will not only make your store more attractive, but will also entice foot traffic and encourage impulse shopping. Having a well-designed store will stimulate repeat sales and grow customer brand loyalty.   What are the basic elements of visual merchandising in retail? Visual merchandising is all about the look and feel of your store and brand. It takes into account elements such as overall appearance and layout, uniforms, signage, illumination, point of sale materials and packaging.
