12 Reasons Why You Need an In-Store Competition

There are numerous well-known brands that have harnessed the power of in-store competitions and promotions to further promote sales. Then there are brands which are yet to tap into this powerful marketing tool, with reasons ranging from a lack of shopping behaviour knowledge, a doubt that promotions have an influence on purchases and an unfamiliarity with designing, implementing and managing in-store competitions.

Regardless of the reasoning, the fact is that in-store competitions have been known to increase sales substantially when compared to standard brand punting, with the below 12 potential outcomes:

  • Increase sales and profits,

  • Enter new market spaces and spread your reach,

  • Positively influence buying behaviour,

  • Encourage brand switching,

  • Create brand awareness,

  • Encourage new product trials and purchases,

  • Enhance consumer desire for your product,

  • Market your products without discounts or price cuts,

  • Reward brand loyalty,

  • Generate positive perceptions about your brand through exciting prizes,

  • Create a database of consumers for direct marketing, and

  • Generate positive word of mouth.

Keep in mind that the prizes you offer play a pivotal role in the success of any promotion. If your prizes do not illicit excitement within your target market you will not reap the full benefits of running a competition.
