In-store communication

A strategic lever for retailers

In-store communication is a key element in the success of any retailer. It is essential for a brand to know how to communicate effectively with its customers, in order to inform them about the products and services offered.

The objective of in-store communication is to encourage customers to buy, but also to build loyalty. It is important that in-store communication is consistent and aligned with the company’s values. It must be visual, adapted to the target audience, interactive and engaging, in order to arouse customer interest and encourage them to purchase.

Your company’s communications must be omnichannel. It’s very important to deliver a consistent message across all your channels simultaneously. This does not mean that the message has to be one-size-fits-all; it can be personalized or contextualized, but it must never be contradictory.

POS devices to boost your store’s impact?

Store front design

Your store’s windows and facade are its first points of media contact, and using them effectively can increase visibility and drive traffic. It’s crucial that the animation of this star medium is correlated with the commercial action plan. This gives the customer a strong indication of the rotation of the offer and the nature of the commercial highlights.

Flyer distribution and street marketing

Digital marketing allows for more precise and targeting of recipients and easier measurement of campaign results. They are many regulatory constraints on the distribution of flyers in the public domain, as well as the distribution brochures and advertising flyers in mailboxes.

The distribution of printed advertising remains an effective option for generating in-store traffic, but digital marketing offers additional advantages in terms of targeting and impact measurement.

POS diplays

Once you’ve convinced your prospect to visit your store, it’s important to dress up the aisles you want to highlight using POS.
Point-of-sale advertising represents all the advertising means and supports used to promote a product, a brand or a brand name. POS advertising are essential because they allow you to get a marketing message across very easily and in the right context.

These include: posters, brochures, touch screens and interactive kiosks, banners, gate advertising, shelf stoppers, printed and digital price tags, and displays.
