Ways to Encourage Customers to Nibble on Add-On Sales

  • Show Off the Product: Retailers who use their products in their live-animal displays typically sell more hideout inventory.
  • Shake up the Shelf: Merchandising edible hideouts near other consumables can spur consumer interest in the product line.
  • Get Talking: Use shelf talkers and product packaging to attract attention to the category.
  • Educate Often: Informing customers that their pocket pets need these products to complete their habitats helps increase sales.
  • Keep Up on Changes: Look to manufacturers for up-to-date information on ingredients, styles and new features of these product lines.
