How to design your showroom to impress customers
No matter what industry you are in, one thing remains true for all customers. Customers will enter your showroom and want to experience the product for themselves. Your showroom needs to be appealing and shine the best light on your products for customers to view.
Lay out of a showroom
While designing your showroom it is important to think about how this will impact the customer’s experience with your products. Take your customers on a journey. Categorize your products into departments, and place sections so that one leads to another. At the end of the journey the checkout counter should be placed, at the back of your showroom.
Fully experiencing products
Make sure your customers can fully experience your products. Lay out samples to be viewed of products that are usually boxed. Creating displays that show the uses of your products and welcomes visitors to interact with them is beneficial also.
Easy over the counter purchases
Make it simple for customers to purchase items through your showroom. This could refer to having a salesperson actively ready for assistance at all times in the showroom. This could be different for every business, experiment and brain storm of ways that make over the counter purchases as simple and inviting as possible.
If you use window displays in your showroom, try to use them as a sneak peak into your business. Make them look inviting and professional from both inside and outside views.
Make your showroom comfortable and inviting to customers by putting some effort into it. Make sure the room is designed and decorated well with good lighting and overhead music. This contributes to a customer’s positive view of your company from the way you present yourself through your showroom.
Encourage staff to provide assistance
Make sure individuals staffing the showroom have a good knowledge of your products to readily answer questions when customers ask them. Also try and make sure they are friendly and easy to talk to. This will ensure customers feeling at ease and enjoying visiting your business.
Collect contact information
Be sure to set up opportunities to collect email addresses from customers visiting your store. Emails are an effective marketing strategy and are likely to bring in future sales from potential return customers.

Building a Warehouse as an Investment
Buying or building commercial property as an investment can be a great strategy, particularly for those looking for a consistent stream of income.
In the article below, we look at the return of investment of commercial and industrial properties and then take a look at how you can start investing.
One of the strengths of commercial properties as investments is their high rental return. While residential properties return only 3.4% of their overall value per year, industrial properties return about 8.1% of their total value yearly.
That’s a huge difference in a reliable stream of income.
So what’s the catch? There are a few. Let’s go through them:
Rental Income Risks
As always, a greater return indicates a greater risk. In regards to industrial properties & buildings, the high rental return relies on finding a reliable renter.
Residential properties are generally filled by tenants extremely quickly, but it can take months to find an appropriate tenant for a warehouse or factory space.
In any town or city, more space is allocated to residential building than industrial building. Finding a property to build on can be more difficult, and the council will likely hold you to tighter regulations before giving you building approval.
However, there is some goods news here. If you’re working with a trusted and experienced builder, they will understand regulations like the back of their hand. A quick phone call will give you an idea of what you can and cannot do. In these situations, your builder is your most important contact.
More good news: fewer people are building industrial properties than residential properties. This means you can often get industrial land for a better price, particularly if you choose your location strategically.
More Specific Needs
When building an industrial property, you’ll need to consider a number of requirements a tenant is likely to have:
- Access to highways.
- Space for heavy machinery.
- Appropriately large access points.
- Access to industrial utilities.
The location of your building is often extremely important, because location often provides value to the business operating out of it.
You need to make business as easy as possible to conduct from your space, so you will ideally find a place close to suppliers and other important networks.
Industrial properties tend to increase in value slower and steadier than residential properties.
Whilst residential properties have greater potential for capital growth, they also have a greater risk of going backwards.
How Much Does It Cost to Build An Industrial Building?
The average cost to build an industrial building is $166,065 AUD for the engineering, fabrication and installation of the building.
Site preparation, civil works, utilities etc are all additional costs.
For large factories over $400m2, the price can range from $100,000 – $400,000.
