Are you in need of rescuing? Boot camp payment plan now available.

Posted By Brenda DiVincenzo, Thursday, March 10, 2016

 

 

July 9 + 10, 2016

M Resort in Las Vegas

 

  

 

 

 

DOES YOUR STORE NEED RESCUING?

DAY ONE:

Smart retailers realize that the average customer service experience is declining. It is actually easier to differentiate your business from the rest with quality service in a unique atmosphere. The first day will deconstruct this ideal shopping experience. What are customers looking for in this new Experience Economy?

Identify, understand, practice and master these key elements of customer expectation:

· Connect with the customer.The first impression is far more powerful than we ever knew. What can you do to create the best one?

· Connect the product with the customer.There is only one way that customers will believe you when you recommend a product; they must trust you. You are now in the "trust building" business!

· Create the feeling of ownership.The act of purchasing is often an emotional moment, providing the perfect opportunity for differentiation. Have your customer literally "fall in love" with your product and not leave without it.

· Connect the customer with your store.The lifetime value of a Starbucks customer is $15,000! What is the lifetime value of your customer? What if you could guarantee that once a customer buys from you, they would always buy from you?

DAY TWO:

The ideal connection-building process in your store involves your team. Only happy employees deliver great customer experiences. Whether you are an owner, manager or sales associate YOU have the opportunity to influence your culture and brand.

· What is culture?

· What are the specific tactics you can use to influence the rest of your team?

· How does your team's actions directly influence your store brand?

· What elements of store culture have been proven to affect customer shopping habits?

· Conclude with an implementable action plan for reinventing your store experience, culture and brand.
