4. Select a Professional 5 Axis Display
When we speak to dealers across the country, it becomes evident quickly that dealers all take pride in their showrooms. Maybe you’re the “Epic-Lounge” guy with the stellar VIP waiting area featuring the latest extravagances like a 4K big screen television, Keurig coffee station and mom’s old leather sectional. Or maybe you're the Picasso of merchandising, whose product arrangements are not only visual art, but emotional art – making the shopping experience memorable for your customer. No matter where you are on the “my showroom is an extension of me” spectrum, we know that each square foot of your showroom is important, because each square foot has the potential to produce cash.
As we spend time helping dealers gain momentum in lighting sales, we have realized one never-ending common denominator: Dealers with displays sell more lights. Period. So when you’re done facing that end-cap and reloading the brochures, Let’s look at what interactive lighting display options are available and how they can help you maximize your potential ROI (return on investment) on the square footage of your showroom.
