By being observant and researching a little you are able to get an idea of where to place your kiosk and who tends to frequent that area. This can help you decide what to offer and how to present it. If your area has a large teen presence, you may want to offer tech related products or cosmetics. It may be beneficial to your business to partner products like tech and cosmetics at one kiosk or maybe sunglasses and jewelry. More options = more sales.
Be creative and daring. Unique and hard to find items will catch more eyes and bring more traffic. Also, be sure you are not offering the same products as other kiosks nearby. Remember to do your research and know your target market – following these guidelines will help make your kiosk successful.
