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. 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?
Here’s an idea…
Offer click-and-collect. Shoppers love the convenience of buying online, but shoppers also like instant gratification- so marry the two! Offer products online that you have in-stock and in-store and limit those purchases to in-store pick-up. It accomplishes the sale and gets the shopper into your physical store where you can create connection and show them in-store only products they may not have seen online.
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.”
