Succeeding in the retail market where there is so much cut throat competition is tough. If you want to rule in the retail market you will have to differentiate yourself from your competitors and work on a clearly defined retail networking strategy. End users of the retail business are party to a fast changing cycle of trends and fads.
Here are some time tested tricks VestaGMS use to help your business win the game.
Customer is the king
This has been often repeated down the years but still is worth listening to seriously. Customers who are coming to you need to be treated in a way that will make them chose you over and over again inspite of the thick competition. You have to provide a level of personalised service that will make people want to write positive reviews on yelp or tweet about it. Treat your customers as the most important person on earth and they are sure to return to your store again.
Use great marketing materials
Retail networking is of no use if you do not have the support of a good store front and relevant marketing materials. Great looking storefront displays, attractive signs and discount offers are the three things that will get people inside your store fast. Try using words like last chance, heavy discount, early bird offer, last two days and “free offer” near your store front. These word combinations are great customer attractors.
Stay on top of trends
This is especially true for the retail business. You have to know what’s hot and what’s not in the market if you want to run your store successful. Study the market, read newspapers, market journals and have a keen eye on consumer behaviour. A successful retailer is almost always a good judge of shopper behaviour.

Keep your customers inside
Your customer will enter your store if the store front is good and you have great retail networking skills. After this happens your job is to keep the customer inside the store and inspire him/her to make a purchase. Always place discounted items at the back of the store so that the customer has to walk past all the regular priced items first. Your store interiors must reflect a consistent theme that is attractive to the customer.
