Retailreinvention

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.

There are only a few spots left for boot camp. Why haven't you registered yet?

Posted By Brenda DiVincenzo, Friday, September 4, 2015

ONLY A FEW SPOTS LEFT!

EVENT + SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY

 

 

This is the first in a series of immersion training boot camps on proven revenue business models, exclusively for IPI members.

  • Are you looking for a new, year-round profit model?
  • Do you have a slow season that needs a profit boost?
  • Have you always wanted to enter the event or sports photography arenas?
  • Do you dream of doing more with your current event or sports photography businesses?

Earn $2000-$5000 in monthly revenue!

 

  • You do not have to be a photographer or already be in the "image capture" business to add this model!
  • Take your retail and production expertise outside of the four walls of your building and apply them to an event.
  • Send any team member to represent your business.

 

Spend 5 days and a minimal investment.

Walk away with ALL of the tools and support to EASILY implement an EXTREMELY PROFITABLE business model!



 

Today's active lifestyles offer numerous opportunities to engage new customers and create new revenue streams. Whether it is young athletes learning competitive skills, non-profit golf tournament fundraisers or an annual half-marathon, these opportunities abound in ALL markets - even yours! Taking advantage of them is as simple as knowing how to find, approach, secure and execute them. Like all things in life, experience always has to start somewhere. This immersive boot camp is that point where your experience either starts (or is seasoned) with fresh, new age ideas that have proven profit potential to benefit your business.

 

While many learning opportunities include lectures, guest speakers, vendor presentations and round table discussions, they are lacking the hands-on nuts and bolts coaching. This intensive camp differs by offering classroom instruction in addition to THREE days of LIVE, actual photo shoots that are earning real money. See firsthand how to prepare, setup and execute three distinctly different events: a football team & individual photo day, a half-marathon and a YMCA golf tournament fundraiser. From loading the trailer to processing orders, every step is detailed for comprehensive understanding. Each day will include a recap of the event with plenty of round table discussion and Q&A.

 

Turnkey ● Easy-to-Implement ● No Guesswork

 

We expect this to be the most complete and thorough event + sports photography training you'll ever experience. Many seminars provide a lot of information and then leave you to go home and figure out how to put it together. We are providing a continued support system with regularly scheduled accountability and consulting via conference calls and one-on-one discussion following the boot camp. It will be easy to follow through and experience real results!

 

Whether this is all new to you or you've played in this pool before, the objective is to encourage you to complete your next endeavor using new found techniques to make it a wild success!

 

Members, please log in for more details on dates, location, content, instructor, price, registration, etc.

Imagine your community being obsessed with your beautiful location, remarkable team and new products and services - before November!

Posted By Brenda DiVincenzo, Tuesday, September 1, 2015
It's time to put the spotlight on your business 
and focus on customer experience.
  • VIEW our in-depth open house training video.
  • DISCOVER step-by-step instructions on how-to host an open house from inception to follow-up.
  • PERSONALIZE over a dozen editable event marketing materials.
  • EXCHANGE open house ideas on the Forum.

       



 
 
Accomplishing your goals is no longer enough. It's time to show off all of that hard work and build support within your own local community. This year we will be featuring all IPI member businesses as part of our IPI Member Network Global Open House Event, showcasing everything that you do, plus what is new and exciting about your business. An open house should be your annual spring board for the holidays, pushing you towards an early deadline for implementation and staff training on all new initiatives. 

IPI members from all over the world will hold open houses on or around the same week towards the end of October (ideally October 20-26). IPI will assist with global marketing of the worldwide open house event, with a multi-channel social media campaign (#IPIopenhouse) and a press release to industry (photo, retail, small business, etc.) media outlets. We'll provide you with an event toolkit for hosting a stellar open house event.

HENDERSON, Nev.Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IPIC 2015 brought together more than 400 attendees to embrace four days of cutting edge education, as well as unparalleled networking and innovation, including the forward-thinking business strategy, "The Vision Project."

The Vision Project program provides current and future IPI members with a complete licensed business model designed to embrace mobile imaging opportunities in an experiential and modern retail setting. The Vision Project is a comprehensive business solution that fully embraces commercial and consumer categories. Key components include community-building classes and events, local and national websites, packaging solutions, global branding and emotional marketing, store design and merchandising plan-o-grams, and operations training.

"For those members who want a formula to be successful in the photo imaging services world or those looking to start a new business, The Vision Project is a retailer's roadmap to a thriving business model in today's photo industry," said Ron Mohney, Executive Director of IPI.

Further, as both member engagement and customer experience were important components of this year's IPIC, IPI launched more than 40 new products and services, educational programs and marketing systems. They also revealed plans for their innovation engine, designed to continuously develop signature products and services and the systems needed to provide them to today's customer.

As the delivery vehicles for many of these new initiatives, the IPI Marketing Solutions Program (MSP) and Managed Marketing Services (MMS) experienced all-time high subscription numbers for new users, including those electing to participate in all four programs (MSP, MMS Email, MMS Social Media and MMS Digital Signage).

IPIC 2015 continued its tradition of unparalleled education through 45 University sessions, as well as focused buying opportunities with Supplying Partner Madness and the Trade Show. Structured networking events ran throughout the conference including the highly successful Instawalk (soon to be an event toolkit for members and their customers). There was also the annual 100-Day Challenge, a tactic to help members stay committed to executing the four days of learning and prepare early for the holiday season. Members from around the world will showcase their results at the end of October, as part of the IPI Member Network Global Open House event.

IPI launched its new video and live streaming studio system as it began year-round live broadcasting of educational events. IPI Vice Chairman Larry Steiner added, "With the hundreds of members around the globe that viewed IPIC programming live, and those continuing to view the recorded content, IPI demonstrated its long-standing culture of member engagement through education and the vast knowledgebase of our member Forum."

IPI Member Network - Revolutionizing the specialty photo and print industry as we mash-up mobile, digital photo, video, signage, home and office decor, and traditional photo into a new dynamic online and brick and mortar business.
