Window displays can play a large role in generating the enthusiasm and browsing behavior of shoppers. Great displays can generate store traffic that would otherwise be lacking.
As Barry Rice writes for ShutterCo, a leading provider of shutters in Dublin, Ireland:
“Some fashion brands have gained a reputation for their impressive window displays, most notably high-end brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel. They go the extra mile when it comes to attracting shopper’s attention.Whether they have effective storyline type displays or they simply let colors or their clothes do the talking, these brands ensure they turn heads with their window displays.”
“It can be a task to get window displays right. In fact, window dressing is an art in itself which requires a lot of experience and of course, attention to detail. In our infographic we outline some of the most impressive window displays over the past few years that have rocked the world of retail. We provide details on each: what is depicted in the display, where it is located, and why is it so effective.These inspiring designs will make you look at window displays in a whole new light — from Bergdorf Goodman to Chanel to Apple.”

All of us need to understand our roles and functions in the companies for which we work. We should want both our bosses and peers to view us in a favorable light and perceive us as great colleagues.
As Officevibe notes:
“Let’s face it, we all have been around (or have been) someone in a workplace who just doesn’t want to be there. You can see right off the bat what type of traits disengaged employees have just by talking to them in the office for a bit. Now, by definition disengaged employees are people who don’t care for their company and have no intention of helping it grow; so they can be quite harmful if they’re within your office.”
Don’t let yourself fall into the negative roles highlighted in this infographic.

In this era of cost-cutting and price discounting, it has become harder for many firms to price their products in a profitable manner. Yet, this can be done!
As McKinsey’s Jay Jubas, Dieter Kiewell, and Georg Winkler report:
“Companies often overlook pricing as a driver of earnings growth, instead defaulting to cost cutting and other measures. Here are five steps to growth through pricing.”
- “Provide meaningful transparency into pricing data — Pricing managers often lack a clear understanding of how profitability varies among regions and product lines, and they know even less about how it can vary among individual customers or transactions. Yet these all have an important influence on pricing and sales decisions.”
- “Understand what customers really value — For all the sophistication provided by advanced analytics to master a complex array of prices, the price of a product or service ultimately depends on how much a customer thinks it’s worth—that is, ‘value pricing.’ The best companies augment pricing analytics with detailed customer insights to identify all the key buying factors that determine how much a product is worth to a given customer, understand how those factors compare with competitors’ offers, and quantify the value created for the customer.”
- “Move from sales reps to ‘value negotiators’ — Determining the best price means nothing if sales reps can’t convince customers to accept it. For this reason, it’s critical that sales reps have important pricing capabilities, such as sound judgment to manage time, negotiate thoughtfully, and adjust pricing guidelines in order to maximize value and minimize the risk of customers defecting.”
- “Provide on-the-job training to build confidence — While most companies understand it’s important to build the pricing skills of their people, few move beyond basic training in classes or online. Successful companies, however, use adult-learning techniques, such as experiential learning, to embed the new skills in the front line.”
- “Change the culture – In our experience, even the best pricing programs will fail in the long term without a deliberate commitment to overcome the entrenched habits and shifting priorities that doom most change programs.”
