For our second #ShopfloorEngage Favourite we will be looking at this conversation from Hobbycraft Bath which is in regards to a stock enquiry from a customer.
In this conversation Hobbycraft Bath's customer Paddy has reached out to the store with a photo of an advent calendar that he made using Hobbycraft's Christmas fabric last year. Paddy has then enquired whether the store have anything similar in stock this year.
This is a good example of how your customers can use a platform such as Twitter to quickly reach out to their local store and enquire about stock before making a visit.
Being able to use Twitter in this way can save time on the shop floor, as well as eliminate the need for a store telephone, as customers can use Twitter to contact the store.
Why is this our #ShopfloorEngage Favourite?
This is our #ShopfloorEngage Favourite this week for a few reasons. One being that this conversation has potential to be turned into a sale for the store. Store colleague Lucy could now offer to put some of the fabric aside for the customer to pick up and purchase at a time convenient for them.
We also like the use of photos to show the customer what items are in stock; Paddy seems pleased with the initial response from store colleague Lucy.
Lucy has also ensured to use personal sign-offs throughout the conversation which is great as this enables the customer to know who they are talking; it also enables a rapport to be built up between the customer and the store.
