3 Promotion Strategies for Retailers to Make You Stand Out

In the Retail, Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) and Fast Casual industries, you need to change campaigns frequently and seamlessly. At C2 Imaging, we know what it takes to roll out a multifaceted promotional campaign. Our unique internal network, nationwide production facilities, and decades of experience mean that accurate point of purchase (POP) kits deliver to each of your locations on time without question. However, we understand our commitment to excellence is fruitless without your effort in planning and kick-starting each campaign. 

Here are some ideas to help you stand out from competitors and elevate your next campaign to new heights.

1. Take the chance and get wild with your marketing ideas. Add dimensional elements to the design of your standard posters, window clings, and counter cards. Shapes command attention. Consider large format 3-dimensional displays for your windows or floor space. 

Your signage shouldn't be the end to the fun. Incorporate gamification and contests to spark interest. According to Neilsen, 66% of the U.S. population are considered gamers. If you can tie your brand appropriately with gamers, do it. 

Don't forget to include social every step of the way. Social contests and sweepstakes are always an excellent way to grab attention. Plus, think about how consumers can use social while in the store.

2. Take it to the streets! Boost local sales with events centered around your campaign. That means empowering your field marketing crew with the event materials to grow excitement. Roll up in style with a cleverly wrapped vehicle promoting your campaign. If your buyers are highly-targeted, consider an exclusive VIP experience.
