|We want to help you effectively sell Buttendz, so we pulled together our top 7 tips for driving sales. Let us know if you have any questions.|
|Check out our new application and removal videos on YouTube.|
|1. Drive home that all Buttendz are reusable. Make sure your staff knows this – it is a huge selling point and can help a customer get the most out of their grip. Familiarize yourself with the application and removal videos.|
The tendency may be to encourage customers to have to repurchase the grip for immediate sales, but there is a greater benefit in showing the customer the benefits of Buttendz and how grips help them save more money than choosing tape. They all have teammates, parents, and hockey friends that they can relay this to, helping to boost your sales.
|2. Make sure customers know how to apply their grips. Buttendz application spray is not a glue and is not the only solution that can be used to apply the grip. Our spray is an alcohol-based lubricant that helps the grip slide on the stick and dries in a couple of hours. |
If a customer is out of spray or had a malfunctioning spray bottle, they can use hair spray or dish soap with water to apply the grips. These will work the same and help save them money and easily reuse the grip without needing spray bottles.
|3. Offer to apply the grip for the customer. And, always point them to our website or YouTube channel for application and removal help.|
Note: Do not cut off grips that get stuck or seem difficult to remove.
Some grips will be more difficult than others to remove or apply due to the tackiness and/or size of stick, but eventually they will come off with more soap and water. DON’T USE PLIERS OR KNIVES TO REMOVE.
|4. We offer a 60-day warranty for free replacement. This is a one-time replacement so the same customer can’t keep returning grips that are torn during application or the first couple months of use. Be sure to take a picture of the damaged grip and ask how it happened and replace it on the spot. Then, email this to us and we’ll send you a new grip with your next order.|
|5. Give us some feedback on what you need to drive sales. For example: Display suggestions(wall poster/window decals/end cap signs/etc.)…be specific! Social media content (marketing assets are stored here)We want to help you sell through these grips and make money so we both benefit from the partnership.|
|6. Drive sales with your display. Make sure to have at least one stick or stick end with a Buttendz grip applied for customers to feel. If they can’t feel the grip while shipping or at the checkout counter, they won’t know how great it feels compared to tape.|
|7. Highlight the benefits of choosing a grip over tape. Players get improved feel for the puck, better shot power and accuracy, and it saves their gloves.|
