Sales per square foot, one of the most important and closely tracked indicators for brick-and-mortar retailers, is highest for retailers who deliver a better customer experience. The retailer with the highest sales per square foot, more than double the average of the 12 largest retailers, spends no money on advertising. Instead, it runs regular in-store product demonstrations and sampling events. In-store demos is a proven retail marketing strategy demonstrated by successful retailers who sell the same or very similar merchandise as their competitors but get more traffic, sales, and profits.
