Retail Styling Seminar Topics Include

How to Style Customers with Amazing Results

Often what separates a personal stylist from a salesperson is who each one is advocating for.  Customers will often be distrustful of salespeople because of where their allegiances lie.  Unlike salespeople, personal stylists are paid by clients, not retailers. 

In this seminar, Bridgette Raes illustrates the importance of giving salespeople training in styling to empower build trust, engage, and up-sell customers.   

How to Set Up Styling Services at Your Retail Location

Brick-and-mortar retailers are fighting with online retailers to bring foot traffic into their stores.  To set themselves apart, many stores are offering appointment-only in-store styling services for a more personalized and curated experience and experts are citing that a showroom style shopping service is the way of the future. 

This seminar will give a retailer the nuts and bolts of starting an in-store styling service at their location.

Empower and Inspire Your Sales Team to Produce Profits

From private label and brands to beauty, gifts, accessories, handbags, jewelry, and more, this seminar will give you tips to efficiently serve your clientele, increase sales and create a more robust and personalized experience with your customers.
