"But the best thing we did to improve the customer experience was adding a washing station to the ront o the sales loor. The reason is simple: When customers try, they usually buy. We have them select their avorite ragrance and we give them a really wonderul hand scrub massage. Who doesn't want a bit o pampering? It is the single best thing we do that converts to sales." Ultimately, any extra touches, no matter how small they seem, that indulge customers' senses help create the total experience. And that's what customers will remember–and it's what will keep them coming back. "Experience is currency, and customers are surprised and delighted when they ind something cool and interesting, especially when they can insert themselves and share on social," Gonzalez explains. "The more you can add elements o discovery and education to create those 'aha' moments, the more impressionable you'll be to customers–and create those opportunities or them to think about you even when they walk out the door." ■ Tracy Morin is a reelance writer and editor based in Oxord, MS. STUDIES IN SCENE SETTING Studies show that slower music will cause your customers to buy more. Audio and video marketing company Spectrio, in an article on how music affects shoppers' behavior, points to several studies with interesting findings. For example, the company reports that most studies have found "slower, more leisurely music causes shoppers to spend more time contemplating their purchases and enjoying the atmosphere. It also leads to a significant increase in sales. Up-tempo or fast-paced music encourages quicker shopping and fewer purchases." However, Spectrio also notes it's important to know your customers and tailor your tunes to the ones that resonate best with them. Meanwhile, LUX magazine reported on a research project "designed to measure the impact of light on customer buying behavior," finding that "customers spent more time in the areas lit with warmer light settings than those with cooler ones." LUX also reported that research shows stores should employ high-contrast lighting for retail areas, diffuse general lighting, pinpoint accenting in shop windows and wide-area backlighting of shelves to create a space where shoppers will want to linger—and are more likely to purchase.
