What’s the FAM Into?

Rachael recently bought…

A pair of lifting wrist wraps – they help me lift heavier because they support the weight when my grip strength starts to go. Very exciting stuff!

Adrienne is listening to:

An audiobook called Pretty Little Wife. It’s a thriller. I tried actually reading the book a few months back, but never could get into it. Yet, the author’s second book was so good I couldn’t put it down. So when I saw the audio book was available from my local library, I decided to give it a second shot and listen to it rather than read through. So far so good!

Foot Traffic Drivers

Need helping getting more people to your store?

Here’s an idea…

Host an Egg Fest Grilling Competition

Spring and summer have distinctive fragrances, and few things smell more like the new seasons than the inviting aroma of food fresh off the grill.

To capitalize on the delectable past time that is equal parts delicious and for many, obsessive, consider hosting a local Egg Fest grilling competition at your store. What is an Egg Fest? Perform a simple “green egg competition” Google search and the results will yield hundreds of articles and events for people itching to enter local competitions to showcase their culinary talents.

Partner with a local charity and commit all entry fees, ticket prices and a percent of purchases to the featured charity.

On the hunt for more foot-traffic-driving ideas?

Pick up a copy of Kinsley and Quinn’s #1 Amazon bestselling book, “Come Back to Bed: Attract More Foot Traffic and Make People Fall in Love with Your Store.”
