But how do these POS displays really help in a product promotion?

  1. Draws customers’ attention

How BOOST Stand-Out in the Supermarkets?

BOOST™ Optimum, a product designed to address the needs of the aging body, with a particular focus on filling in the nutritional gaps for those who are 50+, is making an impact on its customers in one of the busiest supermarkets in the Philippines by using a free-standing display. Here are the reasons why:

#1 Custom Design Free Standing Display

Look at how BOOST leverage its custom design free-standing display. The cylinder structure is perfect for the shape of its products. The branding color is totally maximized in the design. The gold accent calls attention to people in the ages 50+ and tells something about taking care of one’s health. Its benefits are clearly seen in every row.

#2 The Story Behind the Celebrity Endorsement

The featured models are already in their 50s. But did you know what’s more surprising about them? Both actors were in the 1984 youth-oriented comedy film Bagets (which is a local colloquial term for “youth”). In a way, the tagline “Lakas Maka-Bagets” effectively stirs their customers’ memories. The other co-actors of the film were encouraged to have a simple reunion after publishing the ad so, the customers’ attention was fully hooked! Since they share the same age, watched the same movie, and the same vibes. What a smart advertising move, isn’t it? The point here isn’t about the celebrities’ endorsement but the story behind the promotion. So in every product that we promote, let us try to create a story our customers can relate to.

#3 Product Usage

See how did they maximize their products on each row? They displayed various sizes of the product to market to the customers. As a result, people will know that their product comes in different size containers. Notice where they placed the rack – on the aisle of the same nutritional drinks. The position of the products also showed its uniformity and orderliness.
