While online shopping has become prevalent today, consumers will still visit physical stores. The simple reason for this is that they sense unique value in them. Thus, we at IDA Ryogokudo will use our unique expertise to support makers who are considering retailing at a physical store.
Consumers express the wish to try a tester before buying
We want to approach customers who have been unreachable by online/TV shopping
Consumers who dislike retargeting ads say that they want to shop at the store
We don’t know which type of store and area is right and the required quantity for first delivery
We don’t know what type of storefront promotional material would be effective
While checking the product being considered for storefront retailing and using testers, we will listen and learn about your brand concept, aspirations for the product, and target demographic. We will also confirm current retail channels, sales performance, and other, and provide advice on issues that may occur, as well as optimum timing for storefront launch.
Once it has been decided to sell at a store, we will explain about optimum retail channels and other. We will decide which companies among our clients (including variety stores, GMS, and drugstores), area, number of doors, and the required inventory quantity for the initial round of sales, while considering product pricing and other.
Our company will secure the required space and fixtures for storefront sales, produce POP, etc. and launch storefront sales. After that, we will obtain information about sales and purchaser demographics on an ongoing basis. If there is need to change the pitch at the storefront, we will try out different measures with a medium- to long-term perspective, such as adjusting the display and/or executing a campaign, continually offering proposals for the best method to both the maker and retailer. Through this trial and error, we will establish branding.

Company D asked us for advice on how to sell at stores, but didn’t have storefront promotional materials because they had only sold products through mail order. Promotional materials such as POP are needed when selling, so we started by suggesting that they strengthen this and then worked with them to develop a sales strategy.
