In-Store Promotions with Retailer’s Gift Baskets!
The main reason we are awarding KidShow Gift Baskets to retailers is to help them provide in-store promotions that will provide customer appreciation, increase store traffic and sales. We hope that retailers will take the gifts back to their store and plan a promotion with the Gift Baskets as a prize for their own customers. Retailers can conduct a free raffle, community fund-raiser, coloring contest, beautiful baby pageant, essay contest, jelly bean counting contest, or any other creative ideas that retailers want to try to build excitement in their stores! Following the events, we will post the retailer’s contest, and lucky winners, in The Giggle Guide™. This is a promotion that emphasizes and celebrates the generous teamwork between participating manufacturers, the KidShow Las Vegas and attending buyers to help retailers build their business through in-store events.
See and Hear Us at Vegas Kids at World Market Center, Las Vegas
Leesa and I have been invited by the World Market Center to present a business seminar during the Vegas Kids market on September 15. The Giggle Guide™ will present, “Web Sites: Optimize to Maximize.” The presentation will provide user-friendly tips on how to motivate repeat online visitors. We’ll guide you through today’s Internet buzz words – Optimization. Search-Engine Rankings. Tags. Dynamic Content. Streaming. Discover how to take what works for you and adapt it to your Internet audience. The Internet can multiply the power of “word-of-mouth.” This is an informative, yet non-techie presentation. Retailers and manufacturers are invited to attend the free sessions.
