Get Your Book Sales On Fire!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

No matter what you do, changing up your Walter Foster book assortment drives sales. When Foster’s sales team works with you, our art supply retailers, to make display changes, the following month generally produces a 15% or greater sales increase.  The folks at Walter Foster have found that changing a minimum of 10% of the titles twice per year is the ideal way to accomplish this sales growth.

Take a look at the attached BOOK SALES ON FIRE information. It could help you and your MacPherson’s sales representative grow your book sales this back-to-school season.

For more information, contact your MacPherson’s Sales Representative.

Big Idea: Art Supply Stores, Claim Your Google Search Results!

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

ypBack in the day new customers looking for local products and services let their fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages.  Those days are not quite over, but consider this; over 80% of people are now using web search engines to get their local shopping information.

google-places

That means Google, Yahoo, Bing & Yellowpages.com are a new consumer’s gateway to your store. To underscore the point, Google according to comScore/TMP, grew its local search market share from 15% in June 2008 to 26% in June 2009. As these numbers grow, are you getting your rightful piece of the local search traffic? All of these sites want to offer the most useful and accurate information as possible, but gone are the days when a sales rep from the phone company would proof your listing and help you sort out the best image approach that’s custom tailored for your store. The good news is that a basic listing for all the most popular search sites is free. That allows you to write your story, post photos, videos, store website link, operating hours, services offered, and more. The possibly not-so-good news is you are required to “pump your own gas.” More to the point, if you want the best results, you’ll have to do your homework. Getting this simple and free listing right has the power to make or break a retail business dependent on the local market.

Here is a basic check list for turning this opportunity into something huge:

1. Business Information on the Web Must be Consistent, Accurate, and Up-to-Date

Google relies on information it finds on the Internet to improve the relevancy of their results. Customer reviews and mentions of your business information on the web play a big role in how Google ranks listings — it is important that Google associates them with your business. Inconsistencies in how your local business is presented online can make this impossible, which in turn can significantly reduce your local search visibility. Risk factors that can trigger inconsistencies are change of address, phone number or business name.  At the end of the day you want to eliminate all inconsistencies.

2. Claim and Verify Your Business Listing

Amazingly, most local business listings have not yet been claimed. Hey, it’s free to do, so there’s no excuse. We’ve provided links to the top search sites below. Google relies on business owners to keep information up-to-date and accurate via Google Places.

3. Categorize Creatively to Increase Your Search Results

Proper categorization in Google Maps is essential to matching consumer needs to your store’s unique mix. It can make a difference between a poor listing and a great one. Google will suggest categories as you type and you will have to use one or more of those predefined categories to classify your business. Examples that fit classic art materials stores are: Art Supplies, Painting‎‎, Drawing‎‎, Crafts & Kids‎‎, Graphic Arts & Cutting‎‎, Paper‎‎, Board & Films‎‎, Books & Video‎, but you can also create custom categories such as art instruction, encaustic supplies, urban art, spray paint,  graffiti, etc. When choosing custom categories think about the words a customer would use to find a specific type of product or service you offer.

4. Your Store’s Description Entry is Important

The description field should be used to emphasize what is unique about your business and to inspire trust. All that, in less than 200 characters! Having something remarkable about the business in the description is a must. Maybe you have the oldest company in your town, or your staff features practicing artists. Take great care with this critical field.

5. Pictures and Videos

Images and videos are ideal tools for making listings compelling and bringing their conversion rates up. Google allows 10 images and 5 videos to be added to your listing. Some types of images that would help your listing in many ways are: Company logo, key brands carried, pictures of the store, logos of trade associations like NAMTA you belong to, any video of the store or interviews, etc…

6. Details (Hours of Operation, Payment Options, Additional Details)

7. Coupons Get Results!

Coupons are a great way to promote products and services, however in Google Maps they are possibly the only reliable way to track business generated by your Google listing. It doesn’t have to be fancy:  store logo, one time discount, a place for the customer’s name and email address plus a disclaimer like “one per customer, only” will cover the basics.

8. Spread the Word

Even Google recommends this one. Strive to get your local business information mentioned on other web sites:  local art societies, Facebook or any trusted website. Google claims that they rely on mentions of your business information on the web to improve the quality of search results. That means the more mentions of your business on the web Google associates with your listing more certain they are that your business is real, in operation, and important. Google rewards this with greater local search visibility.

9. Get Reviewed

Reviews and Web citations (mentions of your business) are extremely important for similar reasons. Encourage reviews on Yelp, Google, Yahoo, Bing or other search engines and make it easy for people to review you. Make it a part of your routine to ask for reviews from happy customers and point them in the right direction. You can also ask for reviews in your email signature, business cards, on the bills you send out, etc.

10. Consider Using Special Marketing Services

Offered by Google and others, services like AdWords can optimize your search engine results to get noticed more. This can be especially valuable if you are located in a large metro area where there are many choices in art and craft supply retailers.

Here are a few more online resources for claiming your store’s very own Google business listing:

Google Places How To and Support Guide

Add a Google Places Listing

Google Places Start Page

Bing local listing center

Bing Listings How-To Guide

Add a Bing Listing

YellowPages.com

Add a Yellowpages.com Listing

flaxsf

If you’d like to see a great “real life” example of claiming your Google Business listing, type “art supplies, 94103” into the Google search box. This mirrors what a consumer living in San Francisco’s zip code 94103 might do if they were looking for their options for buying art supplies in their neighborhood.  Note that the top unpaid choice is Flax on Market Street. Now click on the More Info link next to the store name. You’ll find concise description of what makes this store unique, photos, videos, reviews, and more. Now that’s helpful and compelling!

The Green Zone for Winter BTS

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

endcap_greenzone

Located in the centerfold of the just-released MacPherson’s Winter Buyer’s Guide is a new feature  – the Green Zone! This special section was inspired by retailers who asked us to share our ideas for “green” end-caps. A team of green-leaning MacPherson’s employees got together and developed end-cap suggestions, downloadable signage, vendors’ inspiring stories and more. See pages 40 and 41 in the Winter Buyer’s Guide or log on to www.macphersonart.com/greenzone for details. Have other great ideas? Let us know! We’re in the business of helping customers succeed.

New Items Program – Select Lines to be Centrally Stocked

Monday, June 22nd, 2009
elgin-new-facility-front-door-and-docks-1
MacPherson’s has just implemented a new program to help improve in-stocks on new items. Going forward, select new items that are UPS-able will be centrally warehoused in our Elgin, IL Distribution Center. What does this mean to you if your normal DC is Atlanta or Reno? If any of these new products are included on your order, they will automatically be split from the PO and sent separately from Elgin. Whether the order is entered via PDA, EDI, Online Express, phoned in or faxed, our system will split your order into two shipments. Because of Elgin’s terrific geographic location orders should be reunited at your store with very little delay. The two order numbers will be the same, differentiated only by the usual beginning letter designation that indicates the shipping DC. For example, N1234567 will be the portion shipped from Reno and E1234567 the portion shipped from Elgin. More good news! The Elgin order will be sent prepaid and you will not be responsible for freight! The remaining portion of your order will be shipped from your normal DC, subject to our current Freight Policy based on the order value of the combined orders.
This new service will allow us to make a smaller inventory investment while we gauge the true nation-wide demand for new products and lines. We will continuously monitor the demand so that the new items can be added to your usual DC as soon as it is warranted. Our simple goal is to provide higher fill rates through better forecasting and lower inventory carrying costs.
Look for for this new message on your your order confirmation and invoices:
Your order included items not stocked in your default warehouse. We have split your order so that these items will arrive from our central warehouse at no shipping cost to you. Your order will arrive on our order numbers NXXXXXXX-XX and EXXXXXXX-XX.
New lines that are or will soon be centrally stocked in our Elgin, IL DC are:
New BORDEN & RILEY paper items
New CAVALLINI items
New CRAYOLA items
Daler-Rowney’s new Langton Prestige paper
New DAVINCI BRUSH items
ENKAUSTIKOS
New WALTER FOSTER books & kits
GAMBLIN Etching Inks
New GINGKO PRESS items
New KOLO items
New LETRASET items
New MOLESKINE
Pantone Replacement Sheets
SCHMINCKE
