Experiential Retail: Renew In-Store Experiences & ProvideThe Ultimate CX

New-age consumers crave unique and memorable experiences. They prefer to walk into a mall and shop at a branded showroom rather than order the product online each time. Why? The sensory and social experience is in itself a form of entertainment.

Walking into a brand’s showroom with a full-sensory immersive brand experience and the social aspect of personalized service delivers a wow factor. Customers are craving social interaction. They are looking to be entertained. Provide them with the experience they’ve been looking for and knock it out of the park with a renewed take on what it means to shop at your store.

Customer experience (CX) is a cost that is difficult to put a price tag on. When you compromise on activities that impact CX, there is almost certainly a negative effect on long-term brand value. Providing immersive experiences communicates a brand’s commitment to delivering a better CX via innovative sensory experiences. Go the extra mile with these omnichannel immersive experiences and give your brand a key differentiating factor in the retail market.

Reinvent What An Immersive In-Store Experience Is For Your Brand

When a customer enters the brand’s showroom, how do you make the experience new, compelling, evocative, memorable? How do you make a fan out of the walk-in customer?

Retailers must look for ways to swap passive installations, marketing, and signage for moreengaging and immersive experiences.

Immersive in-store experiences are memorable. Customers talk about them, share them with friends, and keep coming back for more.

Reactivate Your Brand Through Engaging Visual Experiences

How can you create dynamic experiences to excite your customers? Try a potent combination of personalization, vivid storytelling, vibrant graphic displays, and spice it all up with a dash of technology! Let’s look at a few ways we can help you create an engaging, immersive in-store experience for your fans.

1. In-Store Graphic Displays: Trigger Sensory Emotions

The moment customers walk in through the door of your brand showroom, you have a tremendous opportunity to introduce them to products in an immersive way. Lightboxes and large-format graphic displays provide a modern canvas to paint a picture of an environment to heighten the product’s value.

For example, you can use vividly printed wall panels and stunning backlit ceiling-hung frames to create the perfect setting that immerses the visitor in your brand’s story. Seamless displays that extend from the walls and across the ceiling can create an illusion of being in a different world. Add complimentary soundtracks (audio) and scents (smell) to heighten the experience even more!

Immerse shoppers in an ambiance that puts them in the right mood and influences their decision to purchase. And that’s how immersive experiences that heighten the senses can extend reality, enhancing the store environment with out-of-store scenes. Retail can leverage this as a new and exciting way to connect with customers.

2. Integrate QR Codes: Add Interactivity into Visual Displays

How do you introduce interactivity into in-store displays? It could be as easy as adding QR codes to the signage design. Customers can use their mobile devices to scan the code and it takes them directly to the information that will help them decide to make a purchase. Whether it’s product information or video, in-store coupon or promotion, or a loyalty program, shoppers can use QR codes to interact with displays. Connecting shoppers with relevant content through a QR code immerses them into a whole new store experience. One that can be unique and only available when physically in a store.

Pro Tip: In order to make sure codes work correctly, you want to make sure that print quality is outstanding.

3. Live Demos and Product Samples: Experience the Brand

Display products innovatively and encourage customers to interact with them.Offer in-store demos, personalized suggestions on which flavors or product variants will suit the individual customer or the current season. Show them ways to use the product innovatively.

When customers see how your product is used, they associate your brand with a memorable experience, enhancing recall and pulling them back to revisit your store.

Lead visitors throughout your store with eye-catching wayfinding signs. (We don’t want your customers wandering around the store aimlessly!) We create display solutions, store layout ideas, and wayfinding signage that encourages visitors to participate in the brand experience. That translates into more sales and higher revenue.

4. Modular Pop-Ups: A Visual Treat!

Create modular, changeable display systems for synergistic products or brands within larger retail spaces or big-box retail stores. Also known as pop-up stores, these temporary retail displays combine out-of-the-box creative ideas and high-quality visuals to create an eye-catching experience for the shopper. We design and deliver modular fixtures that can be easily reconfigured and moved from store to store or used for new product launches.

5. Instagrammable Moments: Capture the Customer’s Imagination

Turn every walk-in customer into a star! Create an ‘Instagrammable’ wall—a feature wall with vibrant graphics (and your branding!) that serves as an enticing backdrop for selfies and memorable snaps your fans will love to share on their social media accounts.

Create displays that inspire shoppers to post stories, photos, and videos of their memorable moments interacting with your brand. User-generated content of this kind is one of the most valuable pieces of content your brand can boast of.

We create full-wall graphic solutions, including continuous graphic displays that extend from the walls onto the ceilings—providing the customer with a truly immersive experience. These experiential retail activations focus on creating meaningful connections and build long-lasting relationships with customers.
