Great design and display can motivate people to make a purchase. When items are merchandise correctly they capture the attention of people who would otherwise pass straight by.  

Visual Merchandising is a critical element in your marketing strategy, it is the thing that inspires people to stop and buy.

I can show you how to attract customers and increase sales by applying the art of Visual Merchandising to present your brand, products and services in the most effective way.

Visual Merchandising is a form of aesthetic science. It is a silent sales technique that attracts attention and generates sales…”

Research carried out into what is visually appealing and insights into why people buy has resulted in the formation of  VM rules and principles. This ‘best practice’ needs to be followed in order to generate maximum interest.

The same VM rules and principles can be applied to all products, displayed in any situation.

In retail environments, VM includes the shop windows, interior displays, merchandising of the stock, promotional signs and graphics.

VM also relates to objects displayed in pop-up shops, on stall holder’s tables at markets, on exhibition stands at trade fairs, and in photographs used on websites, for e-commerce and on social media. These are all in effect substitute ‘shop windows’.

If you’d like to merchandise your brand, products and services effectively, I offer a range of services and training packages designed to suit your needs, level of skill, and budget…
