Delivering personalized experiences to customers has become essential for driving revenue and creating a lasting impact. With advancements in artificial intelligence and visual merchandising technology, retailers now have the tools to empower their visual merchandisers in delivering targeted and relevant experiences to local customers.

A visual merchandiser’s goal is to make an impression that lasts without actually having to plan for hundreds of individual stores. AI-enabled campaigns, automatically tailored per region, are a revolutionary tool to generate store-specific success.

AI has emerged as a game-changer for various industries, and retail is no exception. Visual merchandising at its core is a creative art that presents products in a captivating way to a specific audience. However, the art often gets lost by an overwhelming amount of stores to plan for, unless you have endless hours to plan on a granular, localized level.

Visual merchandisers can greatly benefit from AI-powered visual merchandising platforms. By leveraging AI integrated with merchandising solutions, retailers can analyze vast amounts of customer data, including demographics, preferences, and buying patterns, to gain valuable insights into regional markets. And, the best part of all, save countless hours of manual work, allowing the AI to automatically personalize each store location.

Localization is key. One-size-fits-all approaches are no longer sufficient in today’s retail landscape. For instance, stores in colder climates do not need a flashy swimsuit display in the front of their store, and warmer climate stores would not benefit from a giant snow gear display. Every region has its unique cultural nuances, preferences, and shopping habits.
With AI solutions built into their workflow, retailers can design and implement campaigns specifically targeted at local markets. This empowers visual merchandisers to create experiences that resonate with customers on a deeper level. By understanding the local context, retailers can curate assortments, window displays, and in-store experiences that align with regional tastes and preferences.

The AI ROI is limitless. Personalized experiences are a key driver of customer satisfaction and loyalty. With access to retail solutions that leverage artificial intelligence, visual merchandisers can seamlessly tailor their strategies to match the desires of customers in each region. By presenting customers with relevant and personalized offers, retailers can drive sales, increase conversion rates, and foster long-term customer relationships. While revenue is growing, visual merchandisers save countless hours of manual work figuring out store specificities and communicating individual plans to specific locations.

Visual merchandising goes beyond aesthetics. It’s about engaging customers and leaving a lasting impact. With retail solutions leveraging AI, retailers can gather real-time data on customer engagement and response to specific visual merchandising campaigns. This valuable information can guide visual merchandisers in refining their strategies and continuously improving the customer experience.

One Door’s visual merchandising platform incorporates AI to streamline visual merchandising efforts, giving them time back in their day to focus on the art, not the logistics. One Door’s Smart Containers feature allows visual merchandisers to automatically localize their plans, while they’re planning them, so there are no workflow interruptions, and ease of mind knowing that each plan will be assigned and communicated appropriately, with no extra manual work. And, of course, One Door’s platform offers analytical feedback, so you can know that your automatic localization is working.

While personalization is crucial, visual merchandisers can be overwhelmed with the additional tasks of catering to every single store. The beauty of AI lies in its ability to automate and streamline processes, reducing the burden on visual merchandisers while enhancing the work they’ve completed. AI-driven software and platforms can assist in visual merchandising tasks, such as planogram creation, space optimization, and product placement recommendations. With AI-powered analytics, retailers can measure the impact of localized campaigns, identify successful tactics, and adapt their approaches to achieve even greater results. By automating routine tasks, visual merchandisers can focus on creative aspects and spend more time crafting unique and engaging experiences for customers.
