Why Spruiking is Back

Spruiking is back. Customers are hungry for personal contact and social interaction. The ancient art of spruiking is a low cost way to create atmosphere and draw more customers to minor and major retail events.

Gone are the days where you can just fill a shop with stock, place a sign out the front and wait for the customers to come flocking in.

It’s not cheap to lease a space in a good location in a high performing shopping centre.  Once you have secured that location what are you doing to ensure that all those potential customers are noticing you?

It’s back to basics if you want to engage your customers

Retailers are looking for innovative ways to attract more customers into their stores.

Engaging a professional Spruiker during your peak trading periods to draw more customers your way, will leave your staff free to make the sale.

Teach your staff how to spruike too!

What if every staff member in every store had the confidence to spruike?  How much difference could that make to sales even on quiet days?

You could do even better if you invested in a good portable PA system and teach your own staff how to spruike.

Then on quiet Tuesday’s (and any other quiet time when they are wondering what to do to fill in the day) they could potentially increase customer numbers and sales by jumping on the microphone and drawing attention to your business.

Spruiking and engaging your customers to stay in your store or shopping centre longer is a cost effective, fun way to increase sales.

A good Spruiker can easily generate 10 times his/her fee in additional sales with the right product and proper planning.

Spruiker Hire has developed a 2 day workshop that is designed to help you increase your profits through better use of the down time in your shop.

The Training Plan – Engagement is the Key to Success!

The key to the course success is lots of engagement to build staff confidence.  The content is interspersed between and through breakout sessions to reduce the intensity of delivery of so much information in such a short space of time.

More and more retailers are turning to online selling to save their businesses and yet at the same time, they are ignoring the obvious opportunities that are walking right past the door every day!

How many customers walk past your door?..and what percentage of them walk in?

Spruiking is back!  Spruiking is a cost effective solution for capturing those shoppers that already love coming to your store.

Your customers are hungry for personal contact and social interaction.  The ancient art of spruiking is a low cost way to create atmosphere to minor and major retail events.

Train, motivate, inspire and enthuse your staff with a fun ½ day of Spruiker Training at one or more of our Retailer Training Days.
