In today's increasingly digital world dominated by low-price competitors, brick-and-mortar retail businesses must find innovative ways to engage customers and differentiate themselves from online competitors. One strategy that has proven to be effective is the offering of in-store classes and workshops. These experiences provide customers with unique, interactive opportunities that cannot be replicated online, thereby increasing customer engagement and loyalty1.
The Power of In-Store Classes
In-store classes turn casual browsers into active participants, creating a deeper connection between your customer and your brand. Furthermore, these classes not only educate customers about products but also provide an experience that builds customer loyalty and sets you apart1.
Studies have shown that businesses, on average, can make up to 21% or more of their revenue outside their core offerings, including classes and events, and this trend is expected to grow. What can you do at your store that can’t be replicated online or at a big-box store?
