Wind chimes sell well year-round as a durable gift suitable for many occasions. Here are a few selling tips to make the most of your wind chime displays:
Always make sure your displays are kept full and that boxed chimes are readily available for your customer to carry to the register. Be sure to hang the chimes where your customers can touch them, feel the texture of the tubes and hear the incredible tones they produce.
Place your displays near a door, open window or patio where gentle breezes can ring them. If you don’t have a source of wind, place a small fan near the displays or play our Corinthian Bells Relaxation CD in your store. Make sure displays are in a well-lit setting using spotlights or a clamp mounted light at the top of the display, highlighting designer finishes and the overall quality of the chimes. Use our point-of-purchase cards or posters to let customers know which brands of wind chimes you carry.
Decorate chime displays seasonally and for special holidays to help customers visualize the wonderful gift they will be giving. Twinkle lights at Christmas, red hearts for Valentine’s Day and potted flowers in the spring add visual interest. Embellish your displays with bells and floral garlands to encourage chimes for wedding presents; they also make great anniversary gifts, too! Wind chimes are also popular gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, so highlight wind chimes with gift boxes for each of these seasons to maximize sales.
Your sales will remain strong through each season if you maintain healthy stock levels, locate boxed chimes conveniently, and place display chimes in an accessible location. In addition, seasonal décor will create excitement as your customers seek their perfect gift.
