How to Best Use Display Boxes

Display Boxes

Many businesses work hard to make as much money as possible. Retail operations often try to come up with inventive ways to attract more customers. Many manufacturers spend a lot of money trying to convince consumers to buy their products. There are many ways to spend money marketing a product. Some of the methods can be very expensive, but there is a basic tool that both retailers and manufacturers can use that is not that expensive. The use of display boxes is a great way to promote and market a product when it is used the right way.

What are they

The first thing that a business needs to know is how the display boxes are different than other boxes. The boxes used for display are designed to hold the product inside of it and are like a shelf for the product. These boxes can come in different sizes and shapes. They can include print and graphics on them to explain what the product is or to otherwise market what they are holding. The boxes can be freestanding or they can be counter top display boxes depending on the product and the space that is available. The displays can often be refilled or easily replaced when the product inside of them has been sold.

Ways to Use Them

Once the idea of the boxes is understood, it is important to know how to use them. A display is only effective if it can be seen by the consumer. The placement of the displays is very important. Most businesses will place the displays in areas where there is plenty of traffic. If the display looks good, people will stop and look at it. Large standalone displays are often placed at the end of aisles and counter top display boxes are often placed near a register where customers may be standing around.

The goal is to get a person to look at the display and make an impulse buy. Many people may not have thought about what is inside of the boxes, but because of the display, they make the purchase. If a box is placed where it cannot be easily seen or where there is not a lot of traffic, it will not be effective.

Manufacturers and businesses have been using boxes for display for many years. As long as they realize the best ways to use them, they are an effective and inexpensive marketing tool.

Boost Your Business with Cardboard Displays

Cardboard Displays

Many businesses are boosting the sales of their products by turning to cardboard displays. The idea of making a product stand out on a shelf is not something that is new. Businesses have long studied the impact of product placement on shelves and how it translates into higher sales. Most people realize that a product at eye-level sells faster, even if it is not the most popular product. It is because people pick what they see in front of them.

While it is best to be on a shelf at eye-level, not every product can claim those spots. That means that many products have to turn to other ways to attract the potential customers. There are many different solutions, but one of the best is the use of custom display boxes.

What Are Custom Boxes

Before a business decides to use custom display boxes for their products, they need to find out what they are and what they can do. The custom boxes are the packaging that the product is in. The product is shipped in the box. When it arrives at the business, it is stored until it is ready to be used. At that time, it is brought out to the place where the product will be displayed. Instead of taking the product out of the box, the box is opened up, and it acts as its own display on the shelf. That gives the product inside additional space to attract customers. The box can have colorful designs, graphics or other things that can help it attract the eyes of potential customers.

The custom boxes can be big or small. They can be a standalone box, or they can be something that sits on a shelf. They are often perfect for placement near a register. All of these things help make the product inside of the cardboard displays more attractive and make it more likely that a customer will choose it.

Who Can Benefit?

Both the business that offers the products inside the custom displays and the business that uses these custom displays can benefit from their use. The displays often can get a customer to make an impulse buy. They may not have planned to purchase what was being displayed when they came into the store, but they were attracted to the display and chose to buy it. It increases the sales of the business and the product, so everyone wins.

  • Where to place it – In part this will depend on the size of the display. Small displays are often placed near the register. This is the perfect place, because a person is often forced to wait in line and will have the time to see what is being displayed. If the display is too large for this area, any other area where customers are likely to stop for a few seconds are usually best. Near the restrooms or by a customer service area are common places for them. No matter what the displays should be in an obvious location to get the best results.
  • The graphics – There needs to be a message to the POP display cardboard. It should identify what is in the display and it should be able to excite the people that are looking at the display. The sales made by the displays are impulse buys and in order to get them, a person has to feel like they are getting something special. That can be achieved through great graphics.
  • Sturdiness – The display needs to be sturdy enough to last for a reasonable period of time. If the display looks old and worn out, it will not work. A display that looks like it is strong will attract more people to see what is being offered.

Paperboard Display Strategies That Increase Sales

Competition for customer dollars is fierce and the battle only intensifies as the struggling economy and climbing prices eat away at their cash. In order to boost sales, store owners and managers have to get creative in how they present both the layout of their store and the displays they use to attract customers to various items.

Here are some successful strategy ideas from Instabox for using corrugated displays to attract customers and increase sales.

Catch Them at the Entrance

In today’s helter-skelter world, people are pressed for time and constantly rushing through one activity just so they can rush to another. When shopping, people tend to go straight to listed items, pick them up and hurry through checkout.

However, that is bad news for store owners. In order to slow people down, you want to catch their attention with bright, attractive displays at the entrance point(s) of your store. Displays that work best include seasonal items like key Christmas electronics, or products that encourage customer interaction such as plants to touch and smell.

Create Destinations

A store that simply consists of aisles can make people feel like mice running through a complicated maze. This sensation causes people to move through quickly in order to find the exit, much like the mouse in the maze.

Again, getting shoppers to slow down is a key element in boosting sales. Therefore, give them destinations at the ends of aisles by utilizing displays of discounted items. People that know an appealing paperboard display awaits them at the end of each aisle will slow their movement through the aisles.

Break Up Monotony

Corrugated displays also make great mid-aisle arrangements that slow shoppers down. Customers tend to rush through store aisles and only scan for the products they need, particularly if the aisles are long.

However, by placing an attractive paperboard display here and there throughout your aisles, people tend to stop and look at those particular items being offered. Once they stop at the display, they also tend to more closely look over the shelved items in the display’s background.

Use Warm Shapes

Researchers have found that people are attracted certain shapes over others. Two of the shapes that both attract people and set them at ease are circles and U-shapes. Use this to your advantage by either choosing corrugated displays designed with these shapes or creating those shapes in the display’s background.

The Power of Product Display Boxes

Whether you are displaying your product in a store, an office building or a residential property, you want to be sure that the display is eye-catching, attractive, durable, easy to access and, most importantly, conveys your best image to potential customers. Display boxes come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs and can be paperboard displays or cardboard displays, depending on your preference.

Display boxes can be designed for countertop displays, stand-up displays or as countertop shipper displays which are countertop displays that double as shipping boxes and can be delivered pre-constructed and ready for loading. All of our display boxes can be designed with the colors you request and printed to your specifications. These boxes are perfect for point of purchase products.

Sure, you can store your products in a box next to the counter, but it could get lost in all of the other clutter there, or diminished by some other product’s striking box. Imagine your product, sitting on the counter in a brilliantly colored box with your company’s logo stretched across it, holding your products in neatly stacked rows. That image sticks in a customer’s mind and leaves them with the impression of a company that cares about its product and its image. They will remember your brand.

Brochures, maps and other paper products can easily get mixed up or overlooked without the perfect display box to separate them so each can be easily viewed, picked up and taken for use. With the right countertop display box you can have a stadium level arrangement with multiple pockets that will allow customers to see all of your paper offerings at a glance without having to sift through them to see what you offer.

Stand-up displays are perfect for those busy locations that need a show stopping display to attract attention to your latest offering. But it also must be durable to withstand customers brushing by it or shopping carts nicking it. With corrugated cardboard stand-up displays, you will have both. These stand-up displays come in all shapes, sizes and designs.

You can have displays with a desk-like feature to display your product on a flat surface. They can be made with stacked cubbyholes for small toys, or can look like newspaper boxes, or you can get stand-up displays that will hold several different books. With a large variety of styles, there is no end to the creative ways you can display your product so that customers can spot it from a distance when roaming the store. Of course, all of these display boxes, whether shipping, stand-up or countertop, can be custom made in the colors you choose and with the design you decide will put your best foot forward to the retail community.
