ROI of Visual Merchandising
While is widely accepted that coaching and training for visual merchandising is an effective approach to increasing the number of customers who come into the retail store, the challenge is how to credibly measure the impact of the coaching and training program on business results. In fact, many may wonder if it’s possible to credibly measure the impact of visual merchandising training and coaching program and report return-on-investment.Indeed, it is possible to measure the impact, and in working with Retail Coach, you will have access to the ROI Methodology™ approach through our partnership with Bloom Coaching Institute founded by Lisa Edwards.
