Our assessment programs involve an interactive and fully personalized meeting between Diane Chiasson and your team. She meets you onsite and take a walking tour of your facility, look at your existing set up, and make an in-depth review of the current state of your operation.
During the tour, Diane evaluates your store's branding, interior design and layout, and discuss the logistics of merchandising including presentation, eye-catching displays and layouts, cross-merchandising, psychological reactions to color and texture, point-of-sales materials, signage, and lighting.
Diane also reviews your menu, and offer suggestions on how to improve the content, copywriting and design. She advises you on successful trends in the marketplace and how they can be applied to your particular needs.
Diane also discusses your promotional advertising and marketing campaigns, and reviews your current promotional plan. She helps you gain an extra edge on your competition, providing you with a step-by-step strategy showing you how to capitalize on your strengths.
