Are you struggling to make money from your retail kiosk? Are you looking for more ways to increase the money you get from your retail kiosk? Whichever position you are in I highly suggest that you keep reading and implement the following four ways to get more money from your retail kiosk. This will put more money into your hands from the retail kiosk pos system.
Location, Location, Location
Whether you have a mall kiosk currently or are going to be opening a mall kiosk or even if you are an independent retailer, the very first thing you need to think about is your location. You can have the very best products and the very best services but if you are in a location where there is either no traffic or you are only seen once or twice then getting more money out of your kiosk is very difficult. Think about who your customers are. Think about what they like and where they would hang out in the mall and position your mall kiosk in that location and if at all possible set up a 2-3 mall kiosks in other locations they would be. This will increase your traffic and you will pull in more customers that initially have an interest in what you like.
Speed and Efficiency
Some kiosks retail software is old school and it makes a very slow check out. This hampers on productivity. If you already have your retail software and you can already see that its slowing you down, think very seriously about upgrading to new kiosk pos software that has the speed and efficiency you need to take care of your customers and keep them from waiting in line for more than. Also be sure to have your people trained on this software and that it becomes second nature to them. Strive to have staff that are quick and accurate. In my experience customers like someone who will take care of them with speed and efficiency.
Staff It Up One
One thing that I have never liked, is waiting at a busy retail kiosk or retail pos, and having only one person manning it. It is very important to make sure you are well within labor costs. When your customers are at the point of sale ready to check out and they are the 20th person in line but are very impatient chances are they will set their stuff back down and walk away. To fix that you need to make sure that you are staffed properly. It is always better to be over staffed then. You can always send people home.
Make Business Personal
The most important way and best way that you can make and continue to make money from your kiosk is get to know your customers by name. Be sincere and take the time to talk to your customers when you can at the retail pos. I promise you that customers will be impressed, and they will not only come back for repeat business but bring their friends and family back to your retail kiosk.
