How To Set The Perfect Environment For Making Sales

Share This Post

Do you sometimes feel there are hundreds of shops just like yours? That your sales conversion rate each day is simply a matter of luck? And that if only more customers had dropped by, you could have sold way more?

Well, the truth is that it’s way more up to you than you think. There are many ways to attract customers and this includes definite actions you can take to create just the right environment.  First, you want to get more customers to step into your store and next you want to create the right atmosphere for sales to happen. Recognize that there are often psychological or imaginary barriers to people making buying decisions.

To help you deal with these imaginary barriers I have drawn up a list of solutions, and so increase your sales.

Dress right for the part
Current research supports the correlation between the way you dress and what you represent. As a representative of your products, you would need to dress according to your brand. It may sound strange, but your physical appearance is a sure give away to your customers about how you feel about your product or service.  A neat, classy look is a sure way to project the image you’re trying to sell to your customer – that of a successful business person – and this will also help you to move around with greater more confidence.

Scent Your Space
Many store owners already understand the power of scents as a way to invite people to their shops and even particular items. It’s thought to work so well because the sense of smell is most directly connected to the parts of the brain responsible for processing emotions. So if you feel you’re not doing your best in this particular area, think about spicing things up a little –  and see the amazing results for your business.

Tip for tomorrow morning
Go and buy your store’s hallmark fragrance to create the right mood. If it works for giants like Abercrombie & Fitch, Victoria’s Secret or The Body Shop, it will surely work for you.

Smart Organizing
Although you have your preferences about where to place your best selling products, there is a definite science to placing products in retail stores. But that’s not enough. Do your customers have a place to experiment with the product? Can they feel, touch and try it out? Do you have a demo stand? These are some of the aspects you need to think about while (re)organizing your store.

Tip for tomorrow morningArrive at your store 15 minutes earlier just to think what products you would like to have and where – from the customer’s perspective. Allow your thoughts to freewheel before you take your next step.

Play The Right Music
It’s always important to keep yourself and your staff bright and on the go. However, your favorite upbeat music might not lead to the results you were hoping for with your target customers. Research has shown that consumers shop longer and make more purchases when they’re exposed to the right musical match. For instance, if you’re selling upscale products, the best choice is probably classical or jazz.

Tip for tomorrow morningStart trying out the many music platforms out there to select the vibes you want for your store. The enhanced mood will inevitably generate sales.

Use Your Free Time
It’s not always about what you do; sometimes it’s about what you don’t do. Instead of interacting with your smartphone while there’s no traffic in your store, why not start taking advantage of this time to re-organize or rearrange your products, learn more about your products and try them out. This way your customers will never surprise you with questions you can’t answer or descend on you when you’re not ready.

Tip for tomorrow morning
Start writing your business plan for next year. Just thinking about this topic will make your creativity wheel spin and trigger some innovative ideas.

“To Whom It May Concern,

Let me take a moment,out of my very busy day to review my experience of Sebastian Chaviano.
Sebastian is a dream customer service/technical support person. He’s extremely professional and nano-second responsive in every interaction. We’ve even worked on a chronic issue where I learned that his perseverance and patience are also outstanding. Over my 33 years of working in Silicon Valley, I’ve rarely met someone as easy with which to work as Sebastian.

That said, over the past 3 months of getting to know Nova POS, for the first time, I’ve also worked with Frank, Jeffrey, Jose, & Tomer – all provide the immediate service and answers I’ve required. You have a great team at Nova POS. Keep up the good work.”


My name is Mert Firat, and I am the proud owner of multiple flourishing retail chains in a rapidly expanding big city. Since 2008, Nova has been a cornerstone of our ability to operate in a such a fast-paced urban environment. The top-notch customer support team at Nova has consistently exceeded my expectations, ensuring any and all concerns are promptly addressed. The live-support feature has been a lifesaver on several occasions, with expert assistance just a click away. The user-interface of the software is incredibly easy to learn, operate, and teach new employees. This hassle-free experience is imperative for the entire company,  from the CEO to every newly hired employee. What has truly set our experience apart are our account manager and technical support manager, who have been a game-changer in streamlining the process and finding creative solutions. We could not be happier with Nova, and would not be here today without the outstanding experience we’ve continuously been having for the past 16 years.

Kind Regards,
