a scientific approach is required

The first step in checking and improving sales in your store is to know how many customers are coming in through the doors. If you do not have a control state as a point of departure, it is impossible to say which changes actually produce results. You can certainly use your experience and ask the staff, but relying solely on this type of information does not produce a sufficiently accurate result for those who really want to be thorough and develop their business. To succeed in the retail trade, a scientific approach is required.

SOUNDS GOOD. I would like to get in contact.

Explore the Current Situation

Start by measuring how many visitors the store has. The more days you measure, the clearer the visitor pattern becomes. Maybe you have already started counting how many men and women pass through the doors, or look at how many are children and adults, respectively.

Capture rate  = (Store Visitors) / (Passing by the Store)

If you want to take it one step further and measure the stores capture rate (access rate) you need to measure the traffic outside the store. When you have booth the inside and the outside figures the capture rate gives you a percentage number to work and measure against. What entrances works best? How are changes outside and inside the store affecting the capture rate?  The capture rate can also be used in our staff planner.

Not everyone needs this information, but when such information is needed, it is a good opportunity to measure it right from the start.

Conversion rate

In addition to measuring how many people stepped into the store or passed by, it can be interesting to find out how many of the visitors actually bought something in the store. This is called conversion rate (% of sales of visiting customers) and this have proven to be a very effective method for productivity increases. Many projects over the years have yielded significant revenue gains for retail stores. 

Seeing where in the store visits are made, and where it is empty, offers invaluable information for anyone working on maximising the space. If you look at how the visitor moves (visitor flows), you suddenly have a huge potential to increase the quality of the visit and increase sales around the store.

Did the rearrangement contribute to any changes in the conversion rate?
