Ways to Increase Retail Foot Traffic

As you see at the top of the page, this month's featured listing is a 2,800 square foot retail condo available for sale or lease.   When I speak to clients who own/lease retail space, their biggest concern seems to be how to attract new customers and keep current customers coming back.  Here are some recommendations to do just that.

Host a Workshop
In-house seminars and workshops are a great way to educate the consumer.  When consumers have knowledge, they are more comfortable and ready to make a decision to purchase something.

For example, if you own an optical store, you can hold a seminar on warning signs of visual impairments and treatment options available.  Have an optometrist on hand offering free eye exams to the first 10 people who attend.  Even if the consumer doesn't need glasses on that particular day, he/she will think of you first if the need arises.

Have a Special Sale
Consumers love bargains.  Offering special promotions for a limited period of time is a great way to boost foot traffic. Be sure to advertise at your store front.  I would say most importantly, take full advantage of the power of email.  Maintain a database of customers.  Contact them via email and inform them of the upcoming "limited time only" sale. Encourage them to pass it on to their friends so they don't miss out.  

Stay in Touch
Don't just contact your customers when you are having a sale or a promotional event. Follow up with them after they've made a purchase. Be sure they are satisfied. Send special offers if they refer a friend.  Keep them updated on topics relevant to your business or industry. Keeping in touch with your customers reminds them you care and that your goal is to build a long term trusting relationship.

Hold a Promotional Event
"
Promotional Events have to be really exciting and different; otherwise, people just won't come," according to Rick Segal, author of The Retail Business for Dummies. Be creative.
Maybe you can have a local celebrity or athlete make an appearance to sign autographs or hand out giveaways. Whatever you do, keep it fresh and exciting and keep the focus on your target market

Is your location aesthetically pleasing?
Not only should the landscaping at the entrance and exits of the retail center be appealing, everywhere in the center should be warm and inviting.  Are there benches for consumers to sit and relax and maybe have a coffee or an ice cream cone?  Is there ample lighting and security so consumers feel safe walking around when the sun goes down? Is your store clean and inviting; and do people feel welcome or intimidated when they venture inside? 

Work with fellow tenants
A great way to attract foot traffic is to work with your fellow tenants and offer special promotions/entertainment simultaneously.  Have a special Saturday morning sale from 9:00 am to noon and serve coffee, tea, and donuts to potential customers.  Hold a shopping center raffle.  Announce the winner in a central part of the shopping center at a stated time. If the consumer knows 15 retailers are offering "specials", there is more likely to be something he/she will be enticed to buy.

Last, but most important! 
The above are some suggestions for increasing retail foot traffic.  I think the most important thing to keep in mind when trying to keep customers and attract new ones is to always remember the power of customer service.  Your goal is to build relationships with customers so they want to come back and see you and encourage their friends to do the same.  Product knowledge and having an enthusiastic attitude goes a long way.

Benefits for Young Professionals to Jump on the Green Initiative

Get involved in local environmental groups. It is a great way to network while working together to make healthy changes for your local community. Walk to lunch with your co-workers. Take the steps instead of the elevator. Not only will you get your exercise in and relax your mind, you will reduce the smog in the area.

Show your employer you are interested in green initiatives in the workplace. Suggest green ideas that can save the company money and possibly attract new clients.

Realize your actions now have an effect on your future and the future of your children.

By acting responsibly today, you are helping to keep the planet healthy for the next generation.
