What areas of your store are your customers drawn to? How long do customers spend in each area of your store? How does your store layout, product selection, and staffing affect sales revenue?
Do you know the answers to these questions? If your response is no, do you know how to get the answers?
Two of the potential retail technology solutions you need to investigate are heat map technology and full path analysis.
A heat map will provide you with a detailed understanding of traffic throughout the store. Knowing how customers navigate the store, what products draw attention, which areas tend to be the most frequently visited, and which departments are cross-shopped, can reveal where to focus marketing efforts and design concepts.
When it comes to B2C advertising and marketing, the behavior of your customers is one of the most important factors to consider when your aim is to optimize and improve your sales. Ines Gregoria, Decibal Insight
Full path analysis helps retailers analyze the overall shopping trip by providing a detailed understanding of the customer’s entire experience. This helps determine how each store’s layout, staff interaction, product selection, and pricing affects overall sales.
