TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 828 – Why Free Things Are Amazing

Tribeology: Learn It. Do It. Profit. Decide who you want to work with, attract them, and sell them things they want to buy! It really is that simple.

Saturday: Try This

This totally made my day.  I’m totally serious, I had a happy grin because I got this for free!

If you wear contacts you know what this is… travel size eye solution!  BUT there’s also a new contact case inside.

Anytime you get a new contact case it’s amazing!  I equate it to getting a new toothbrush at your visit to the dentist office…

But NO tooth drilling here.

I happened to stop at my local convenience store to get gasoline and soda.  That’s when I saw it… an entire table with a bunch of stuff on it.  Just random health and beauty aids laying on a table with a sign in magic marker that said, one free with purchase.

This made me buy MORE stuff like chips…

Ya know, I’m still a little exited about this!

I’m sure they were re-merchandising and not wanting to throw stuff out – but it was awesome!  Like a little surprise party… you should try this.  If you have stuff to get rid of just throw it on table with a note that says “One free with purchase”

That’s it.

Have Fun!

I love this idea. It’s the ability to set the stage and create a fun memory.

This photo is actually from a restaurant – but there’s a long narrow hallway on the approach to the main dining and host stand.

It’s the perfect opportunity to set the stage.  As a reminder “set the stage” is the time to draw your customers into your experience.

One of the best examples of this is an amusement park ride at Disney World.  The waiting lines wind around and around but at the same time they use lighting and sound to help you get into the spirit of the ride.

This hallway set a quirky vibe by having oversized scrabble pieces on the wall… it’s the opportunity for customers to spell words, take photos, in essence… be quirky, too!

How can you help “set the stage” for your customers?  Can you theme signage, use words on your website that draw or direct your customer to the right experience…

At the marina we offer a bottle of water and orientation session to help our customers make the transition from the hustle of driving to the relaxation of a boat ride.

Set the stage!  Try This!

On a recent trip to Disney I came across this board full of pins… It’s a Ship’s Wheel designed board to match the theme of the hotel…

The clever part is, it’s to promote the pin trading program of the Disney Parks.

The ironic thing is… there is no sign describing what to do, what the board is for, it just happens to be there.

The only suggestion is that you restrict to two pins per guest per day… I find it clever because you are not required to put a pin on the board to take one, however, that would be the idea of the program.

It doesn’t cost money to take a pin.

Although it is at the entrance to the gift store where you can buy more pins, it’s not in the general area of the pins.

The board is just “there” – it exists.  And people use it.

I love the idea because Disney actually made a product that consumers buy that is fun, engaging, and only used on vacation… I mean you don’t pin trade at your house… just at Disney… and it builds a solid tribe of people who are recognizable throughout your vacation.

But this concept of the free board of pins.  How can you use that?  They do it at the grocery store with free samples…

How can you utilize a free sample at your business… a free guide, a free top 10 list, a free _____ – figure out the way to get people “hooked”!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 810 – Only Seven Oranges for Sale…

Saturday: Try This

Have you ever been to the grocery store and seen the big huge display of oranges?  They stack them up… pyramid style and they look fantastic.

Someone took great care to fill up that huge display – they light shines on it perfect.

NOW… have you ever been to the grocery store on a Sunday evening?  The big shopping of the weekend is over and that once dominant display is reduced to 7 oranges and you think….”I’ll pass”

They are amazing oranges – but the expectation is to find a HUGE display – so to only see 7, you think, “they must be yucky… no one else wanted them”

Now what if the display looked like this

Those seven oranges look pretty amazing!  AND if you’re at a restaurant that sells lots of cakes and cookies, it gives you the customer a great healthy option!

Displaying your merchandise is key to your success — both online and off.  If you’re online take care in your photos… The photos need to tell a story and often it’s the thing that stops people and gets them to read your headline and even body of the description.

Just remember – it’s all in the visual.

Look around your store and at your website — determine if your 7 oranges look like the last 7 oranges at the grocery store – or like the seven in the photo above!

Try This!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 804 – Clean Your Restroom!

Saturday: Try This!

 

This is one of my favorites!  I love clean restroom… they make a huge difference (well… to me).

How can a clean restroom make you money?  If I have a nasty gross experience at a restroom, I will go out of my way not to go back.

WORSE.  And this drove my husband nutz… we were on a road trip, stopped at a wayside rest – and I was so grossed out, we had to go to the next store with a restroom, which was like across 4 lanes of traffic.  Yeah, he was “super” happy to accommodate my request.

hahahahaha

He was not.

But my point is, people that stop for restrooms are more likely to buy stuff!  Use the space on the walls to pre-sell stuff.

For example…

This stop at the restroom was so confident, or cautious, about their restroom they set up a text system.  If you don’t have the system in place for a text… what do you have?  I mean people are using their phones in the restroom.

Shrug if you want, but you know it’s true.

If you can’t do text… you sure can do an email.  I’d say phone – but most people are not going to phone you, but they sure will send an email!

As for the other sign, get a fleet card!  OK, most people are not businesses – however, it mentions car washes and that let’s you know there’s a car wash right on site.

DO IT

Wash your car.

Anyway, clean your restroom – it’s super duper important!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 798 – Cheers to Helping People Drink!

Saturday: Try This!

How can you make shopping easier for your tribe?  For me… provide Diet Pepsi — but if you can’t do that, make it easy to still consume Diet Pepsi while I shop your product/services!

How cool is this idea?

Target has a full basket of beverage holders for your use on your cart.  Now… part of this has got to be to prevent spills in the aisles… haha — but what a great idea!

Buy a beverage from Target – and they even have a way for you to easily consume it.  It’s a great idea.

How can you do this?

One way we make things a little easier for our customers is to have “cheaters” at the front counter.  If someone is writing a check or signing a contract we want them to see!  I picked up several pairs at the dollar store.  So for one dollar, we provide a great service to our customer to help them better enjoy their shopping experience.

Take a look at where your customers have discomfort.  When do they make a big sigh…. did they forget something… send a reminder… have the “thing” they forgot… there are lots of ways you can make your experience better.

If you’ve got an idea to share… put it in the comments!

Try This!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 792 – Don’t Try This!

Saturday: Try This!

I love visiting the whole Disneyworld resort.  The parks are fine – I’m not really into them… but I absolutely love visiting the hotels.

That’s probably strange.

But hear me out — it’s a great way to see how to create a theme and have total immersion.  By total immersion I mean the menu items, the attire worn at the front desk, the flowers, and furniture…

You are completely dropped into a theme.

So for this Saturday you can use the “try this” tip as creating a theme from start to finish.

BUT

I wanted to share an opposite of “Try This” and make it a “Don’t Try This”

Look at this photo…

We walked down the hall toward the restrooms and on the left side was this space…

Anyone recognize it?

YES!  It’s an old phone bank.  I actually remember visiting this hotel when they had payphones on the walls!

But now it’s this… a strange space with blank panels in the areas where the phones used to be.  But that’s it.

Why?

With the careful attention to detail it seems odd to have a void.   It could be closed off for storage… it could have chairs or benches as a waiting area… I mean there are lots of other things.  But this?  It’s just unused void.

Take a look at your business and just see if you’re void.  Maybe it’s on a webpage or even your brochure.  But use the Disney experience as your guide and…

Don’t Try This!
