Dos Marcos Show. Are Mark and Mark splitting up? Not exactly, but I am co-hosting a new show with Mark Kinsley —The FAM Marketing Show! Today, the guys are chatting about the concept of the new show, how you should apply it, and whether or not the Lord works through pineapple pizza.

Research Data. How do people think about sleep? It’s an interesting question with a surprising result. Based on our exclusive research conducted in partnership with Nationwide Marketing Group, research showed a majority of people believe good sleep is due to proper sleep aids and exercise, and has nothing to do with their mattress. 😳 Find out how you can counteract this myth.

How Do People Think About Getting Good Sleep?

Here’s a tidbit from the research we did in partnership with Nationwide Marketing Group.

We asked more than 2,000 recent mattress buyers how they achieve good quality sleep, and mattresses were at the bottom of the list while sleep aids were number one and exercise number two.

What can we do? Make sure your marketing connects mattresses to the life-changing benefits of great sleep. Don’t assume people understand that a mattress has a massive impact on their sleep quality. Remind them that we spend a third or our lives on that sleep surface, so it better be a good one.

Foot Traffic Drivers

Need helping getting more people to your store?

Day Camp

Host a family fun day camp at your store. Partner with local food vendors and active community partners to create a memorable family day. Is biking big in your area? Host bike and trike (or recliner?) races so kids of all ages can participate. Do you have a big foodie community? Host a taste testing event or a mock chef cooking show where families have to make a dish using special ingredients within a certain time frame (this is also a great way to showcase some of your appliances). Make it a fun event that members of the whole family can enjoy!

On the hunt for more foot-traffic-driving ideas?

Pick up a copy of Kinsley and Quinn’s #1 Amazon bestselling book, “Come Back to Bed: Attract More Foot Traffic and Make People Fall in Love with Your Store.”
