Pop-up shops are becoming ever more popular. They’re ideal for business owners wanting to show locals a taste of their business offers online. Alternatively, you may just want to sell homemade goods whenever you have the time to make them.
A pop-up shop has tons of benefits including making money and networking. So, with more and more pop-ups popping up, how do you make yours stand out from the crowd? Here’s how to get customers flocking to you.
It’s not easy to get a pop-up shop to look exciting and engaging in a limited amount of time. You may only have an hour before customers start dripping into your shopping space. This means you have to know what you’re doing before anyone arrives.
Practice makes perfect. The more venues you attend, the easier it will be to set up without thinking too much about it. However, until then, it can help to practice a quick set up at home or even in your garden if you need more space.
When customers arrive, it’s important that they don’t have to search too hard for information. Clearly mark everything so customers need to ask as few questions as possible. You also need to make sure you can process payments quickly. What is payment processing?
It’s basically the card machine you use to take payments from customers. The last thing you need is for your card machine to fail you when customers are trying to make quick and convenient payments.
Influencers and pop-up shops go hand in hand. It’s a relationship that never fails to result in sales. Influencers want to get paid for their work and you want people to visit your shop.
Ask an influencer with your target market audience to visit your pop-up shop and create video content about your store and products. Advertise where you’ll be popping up next and wait for the results.
Whether you own a full-time business or you like to pop up on the odd occasion, social media can serve you well. It’s a great space for your customers and potential customers to browse through the products you have, look at reviews, and interact. If you have a small business, this won’t take up much of your time.
Be sure to keep your social media content fresh so you stay in the minds of potential buyers. It’s the perfect way to advertise your pop-up shop venues ahead of time and gather interest.
Location is vital when it comes to standing out. You want to be somewhere full of your target audience but not full of competitors. Think about how you can link with other businesses with the same audience but different products. The more you operate your pop-up shop, the easier it will be to choose the best locations.
