Money Making Merchandizing

A seminar that could just as easily be called “How to Sell More Stuff Without Spending a Lot of Money,” spend two days discovering how to make the most of limited resources and get your front-line staff involved in creating an exciting retail environment that generates sales.

Key Takeaways

What You'll Learn...

  • Get actionable tools for creating the kind of in-store merchandising that leads to sales!
  • Engage everyone in your organization–from leadership to the front-line–in merchandising your products and services so that customers WANT to buy!
  • Explain the difference between marketing and merchandising and why each is important.
  • Document specific ways to differentiate your business and a plan to reinforce that differentiation.
  • Increase sales by identifying at least one missed opportunity.
  • Develop a network of peers to call upon for support, to share in successes and get past roadblocks. Laugh out loud, have a-ha moments and realize that lots of well-meaning and well-run organizations face the challenges you do.
  • Tour Zingerman’s Deli and Zingerman’s Bakehouse for a behind-the-scenes peek of how we do things here.
  • Eat delicious breakfasts, lunches, snacks and treats made especially for you by several Zingerman’s businesses. Attendees rarely leave hungry...
