HomeRetail Display BlogWhat Makes Store Displays More Effective?

Effective store displays are like a stationary salesperson who is always on the clock. Attractive to the eye and effective at turning a potential buyer into a loyal customer, store displays are key to product and retail success. Store displays can be used for many different reasons, including promoting new product lines, showcasing a product relaunch, advertising a promotion or sale and demonstrating the uses of a product.

What Makes Store Displays More Effective?

We have all seen effective store displays and probably some that were not very effective. So, what makes a store display effective?

  • Balance: Balance doesn’t always mean symmetrical, but humans prefer balanced displays and may bypass a display that seems messy or out of balance.
  • Focal point: The focal point should be your product, and everything about the store display should complement your product packaging and the sales environment in which the display will be.
  • Simplicity: Text should be easy to read both in size and font. Words should be limited to the most important message you want to share with potential buyers.
  • Colour: Large blocks of colour are more effective typically than patterns, which can quickly overwhelm the eye.
  • Level: The height of a display is key to its success.
