Motivational speaker Mark Hunter, “The Sales Hunter,” will show retailers and vendors how they can maximize their price and avoid using discounting as a sales strategy during his educational session to be held at the 2011 Global Shop Show in Las Vegas March 28-30, 2011.
The session, titled, “Full-Price/Full-Profit,Yes, It’s Still Possible,” and sponsored by Stevens Point, Wis.-based National Association for Retail Marketing Services (NARMS), Hunter will discuss how discounting has become a strategy too often used as a tool to build sales; resulting in conditioning the customer into believing there is no reason to pay full-price. Hunter will explain how techniques being used by others may be applied to benefit both retailers and suppliers and result in a more profitable industry in both developed and emerging markets. The session is slated for 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, March 29.
