Learn how to succeed with your product and your brand. Your customers will be thrilled, proud and come back to do more, spend more. Ian will address how can people be so interested in gardening (More American households (91 million) are involved in gardening than ever before) and so shy in spending (is less than two months cable for most of those households)?

Ian will specifically address:

  • … how success creates customer loyalty.
  • …how to make the most of an interested, educated, time-conscious consumer who does research on-line prior to shopping and then visits your store.
  • … how to leave a customer feeling more confident and excited knowing that the products they bought were tailored to their needs.
  • …how the progressive retailers are moving towards “Solution Selling” with tried and true examples of how even small incremental sales of more “tie-ins” can build out the consumer’s basket AND make them happy!
  • …how to sell the whole “success kit” of hard goods with the plant material!

Many garden centers are so busy running their business that they neglect a social media presence. If you count yourself among this group, you might want to reconsider. Over 70% of businesses report gaining new customers through Facebook alone. Take an hour out of your Arett Show visit on Monday, Sept. 11th… and while you enjoy lunch, attend a beginner’s social media workshop.
