Services Provided by G.A. Wright
G.A Wright can help you conduct a major sales promotion event by referring an on-site consultant to plan and manage the execution of the promotion. In addition, a number of other services are provided which include the expertise to:
- Analyze the location, inventory, physical characteristics, sales history, market potential and competitive environment of your business to determine its viability and value.
- Address your business objectives of opening a new store, closing an existing store, increasing the market visibility of the business, moving to a new location, eliminating an overstock, or generating additional cash flow.
- Recommend a plan that includes the best timing for a major sales promotion event, the anticipated return, and the resulting impact on the business as well as any other options or courses of action you may want to consider.
An analysis is conducted to determine you store's sales history and trend, the competitive environment, and the demographic profile of the surrounding market area. Recommendations for a sales promotion event are made in view of these overall market and business conditions as well as an evaluation of the physical attributes of the store.
Through evaluation of your store's sales and financial history, and on-site inspections, a sales promotion plan is formulated. This plan identifies the target market, media, and merchandise to be sold. It outlines the ideal method of advertising and promotion, details the actions needed to optimize results, and develops a time line. The planning process begins at the time of the on-site inspection and is completed by the sale consultant. Monitoring of sales throughout the event, results in plan modifications that keep the process on course.
"The promotion plan you use is by far the most effective I've ever seen. It is obvious that each detail has been thoroughly researched and carefully thought out. You have given us a program that we will take great advantage of in the coming years."~G.A. Wright Client - Du Ell Sporting Goods
Once the store sales promotion plan reaches the implementation phase, a full range of marketing support services assist you in the conduct of an efficient sale. Advertising, creative services, point-of-sale promotional materials, exterior signs, direct marketing, a frequent shopper program, and fulfillment of all necessary materials to support the promotion are provided.
