Promote your Retail Products & Enthusiasm with Free Demos | Episode 6

We are diving into how and why product demonstrations can increase profits and customer satisfaction.

I do get push back from retailers about this because they assume they will be giving everything away for free and their customers won’t want to buy/act/signup.  But in reality you are sharing your enthusiasm and passion with your customers, giving them the confidence to use the products on their own … and maybe sign up for your workshop, custom services or store events.  It is a marketing tactic. 

One of my coaching clients/retailers was very skeptical about putting in the effort into free demonstrations in her store. She ended up selling $800 in paint products alone

The same techniques, strategies and marketing tactics can work for all kinds of retail products not just paints and brushes.

Giving demonstrations totally worth thinking about for your retail biz. It’s how I built my creative retail store and won over my customers. To help you master the art of demos,  I have a freebie for you my best tips and tricks for giving a paint demo. Make sure you download it and try it out
