Retail Expert, DeAnna McIntosh of The Affinity Group International and Retailing Evolved

“Large retailers and brands are run by their merchandising departments.

There’s a major disconnect in the small business community, as the majority of businesses I speak with have little concept of what merchandising is. It is the missing critical piece in their business strategy and I utilize speaking platforms and our consulting services to close that knowledge gap. 

I empower them to drive their businesses strategically.”

Retail and E-commerce Seminar Topics

Merchandising 101

Merchandising is the buzz word that no one is talking about. It should be the core focus of all product – based businesses: defined as having the right products (at the right time), at the right price, at the right place, with the right promotion, with the right people.

Retail Is Not Dead. It Has Evolved.

Continuous innovation and differentiation is essential to surviving the ever-evolving retail landscape. Key focus areas include customer service, selling space, events, brand partnerships, customer loyalty programs, and their assortment.

The E-commerce Shopping Experience

Just because your shop is online does not eliminate the critical need for a defined and conversational customer journey  through your site. You, in fact, have to be even more creative on how to reach and retain your customers since you lack a  physical presence with the customer.

Create The Perfect Product Assortment

There is a science to merchandise buying and planning for sustainable profitability. Assigning and analyzing attributes help you gain a deeper understanding of your current sales trends.  The combination of sales analysis, trend forecasting, and knowing your customer intimately results in the expert curation of your product line.

The Brick & Mortar Shopping Experience

Brick and Mortar stores have to provide an experience to entice customers off of their devices and into their stores – and cultivate that experience long after they walk out of their door and are back at home.
