Always remember People have Five Senses, not just one. Revealing the 5 senses which influence the display of Virtual Merchandising are :-  Sight, Sound, Touch, Smell and Taste. Especially most of the visual merchandiser practise, “THE RULE OF THREE” rule which is explained in detail below.

  • THE RULE OF THREE

In creating displays, most visual merchandisers will often refer to the rule of three, which means that when creating a product display, try to work in sets of three. Based on how you’re arranging your products, you’ll want to have three of them side by side instead of just one. For example, if you were arranging things by height, you’d have items that were short, medium, and tall.

                    Our eyes are most likely to keep moving when we’re looking at something asymmetrical because when we see some symmetrical or balanced. The Rule of Three will keep your customers’ attention longer on your product displays. This also alludes to the “Pyramid Principle,” where if you have one item at the top, and all other items “one step down,” it forces the eye to look at the focal point and then work it’s way down.

In the earlier twentieth century, as retail business started to grow, it became important for establishments to have a visual display of goods in order to attract customers. The store’s windows were usually used to creatively display the merchandise. As years passed artistic window displays made a part of the overall design of the store. In the later years artists like Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol created window displays. This art eventually developed and took form of Visual Merchandising.

In early 2017, Amazon launched a high-profile marketing campaign for its home assistant system Echo. According to its hundred-video-long advertising series, Amazon Alexa Moments, Echo allows users to ask home assistant Alexa a variety of things, from “Alexa, play ‘My Girl’” to “Alexa, what time is it?” But crucially for retailers—and perhaps unsurprisingly, considering Amazon’s  e-commercial origins— many of the videos show Echo users asking Alexa to order products off the internet for home delivery.

  • Digital visual merchandising brings a new way of interacting with your audience through in-store display, mixing modern techniques with the core skills and values of Visual Merchandising. A digital visual merchandising scheme can increase footfall and encourage ‘shareable moments’ on Social Media.
  • One further benefit of digital visual merchandising is its versatility; rather than having to stick to the same display throughout a campaign or season, the elements of a digital merchandising campaign can be revised seasonally in line with your latest marketing campaign.
  • Digital visual merchandising brings new life into window displays, incorporating techniques such as Augmented Reality or QR codes to provide an interactive experience for a store’s target audience.
  • An example project, handled by our sister company FormRoom, is the H&M Capsule Conscious Lounge at Oxford Circus. The lounge featured an interactive selfie booth with a variety of angular mirrors, as well as a touch screen from which shoppers could read information about H&M’s Conscious Collection and pick out their favourite outfits.
