1. Understand Sales Basics And The 4Ps
The basic foundation of selling is to provide the customer with the 4P’s: Product, Place, and Promotion. A good sales promoter understands this but also knows the 4Ps of the product in-depth: price, purpose, production, and promotion.
As required, a good retail promoter should have extensive knowledge of the product. The promoter should also be familiar with the entire product line and the category of products that it falls in. They should also possess knowledge of competitors’ products.
Good retail promoters know how to effectively promote a product in the perfect position for in-store promotions. They will place their table in high shopper density areas near the product and in high shopper traffic areas so that your promotion will be seen easily by customers. Also, good promoters will know the rules for the placement of specific goods so that they always operate within the retailer’s guidelines.
Price is the most important factor in a customer’s purchase decision, so it’s important to ensure that your product is priced competitively. Price knowledge is important for this reason, as customers will often ask about the amount of discount offered by a retailer and how frequently a particular product is offered at a discount or promotional price.
Beyond these essential skills, good retail promoters know how to improve the customer experience and how to ensure that each promotion is a success. Good retail promoters enjoy being around customers while they are shopping, in order to build strong relationships.
2. Have a Deep Insight into The Product
A good retail promoter is skilled in explaining the benefits of the product, its features, and specifications, as well as highlighting its benefits over competitors. Promoters also need to be able to answer customers’ questions and point out the differences between products.
3. Offer Competent Advice
In order to increase the chances of a sale, retail promoters need to be able to give good advice about products. The more informed the customer is, the better their decision-making process will be and the better they will feel about buying from your store. You can do this by providing advice on things like storage, shelf life, and the effects of the product. You can also seek out the customer’s opinions about your product – even if it is something as simple as whether or not you should stock their favorite cereal!
4. Demonstrate Excellent Customer Service
Customers will remember a friendly sales rep over an indifferent one. An effective retail promoter will be able to pick up on the different types of customers, tailor their attitudes to fit that of each particular customer, and listen to the customer’s needs. Make sure to listen to your customers and be able to assist them with their biggest problems or concern. Above all, a good retailer provides a positive experience for every potential customer.
