In-store advertising

The ultimate eye-catcher. 


You know how hard it is and how much effort you have to put into attracting customers.

There are hundreds of tasks you and your employees need to complete in order to make sure that customers visit the store and go home delighted. While having enough stock, bringing in newly released products, and offering great customer service are mandatory when it comes to customer satisfaction, there is a problem. 

Customers are no longer paying attention while shopping.

Did you know that our attention span is narrowing due to the abundance of information?  

This doesn’t leave you with a lot of options to catch the (short) attention of your customer. You need to do something special since people no longer get distracted by simple, dull in-store displays. 

How can you catch the eyes of your customers? 

In-store advertising! 

In-store advertising helps you engage with your customers, capture their attention and provide the WOW factor. However, this happens only when it is done right!

82% of buying decisions are made in-store.

This means that while people might have a shopping list with them, it is not as important as the products they find in-store. They make their decisions after entering a brick-and-mortar shop. 

82% of buying decisions are made in-store.


You can make them change their mind and purchase more or you can make them frustrated and leave without any products. It is up to you and your in-store marketing strategy. 

Even when you are using old-school in-store advertising tools like displays, banners, or aisle blades, your sales will (slightly) increase. However, new types of in-store advertising solutions can help you make the most of your campaign and really lift your sales.

Apart from increasing sales, an in-store advertising campaign can help you: 

  • Increase brand awareness
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Engage with customers 
  • Convert undecided shoppers

Leverage impulse buy 

Impulse buy is common. Customers see a product, they like it, they put it in the cart and don’t look back. 


Even if they did not want to buy anything else, even if they don’t have the budget for it, impulse buy happens and it happens in brick and mortar stores mainly. 

Did you know that 68 percent of US consumers said their primary location for making impulse buys was “in person in a store”.

People want to see and touch products before purchasing them. Labels, colors, format, and display help shoppers make up their mind and buy.

Create a path for customers to follow

When it comes to eCommerce, you’ve probably heard about customer journey. Well, when shopping in-store, customers also go on a journey. 

If you create the right path, you can convince them to purchase more and to spend more on high-quality products. 

Displays and layouts can also help you attract the attention of customers while they go on their journey. Being disruptive is not a bad thing, it’s the only way in which you can make your customer switch off their auto-pilot mode. 

Product placement is essential

If you want to leverage impulse buy, you need to find the right place for the products in-store. Brick and mortar shops have the advantage here. While eCommerce platforms place products into categories, you can put them on actual shelves and arrange them in a certain way that is more appealing to the shoppers. 

There are different tactics that can help you encourage an impulse buy. 

For instance, one of the most common product placement tactics is putting small, easy-buy products near the checkout. These items need to have a really low price and be small purchases. Candy, soda cans, chewing gum, or tissues are the ideal candidates for a spot near the checkout. Easy to buy, small, and convenient. 

Another great product placement tactic is putting impulse purchases near in high-demand products. They need to be complementary products. For instance, if you know that most of your customers stop to purchase flour, you should also include some small baking trays or cupcake shapes. 

Use technology!

Do customers no longer engage with old-school in-store advertising solutions? Shoppers come in, buy, and leave? 

It’s time to put technology to the test. IoT devices can help you leverage impulse buy, lift sales, and engage with your customers! 

Give your customers what they want!
