Hook, Line and Sinker
Do you know your target audience? Recently my family and I took a trip to the LEGO store in Downtown Disney. As we were walking up to the store I noticed several Lego stations outside. My children were immediately drawn in. Each section had Legos to build with and was an instant hook for those passing by. There were children and adults all playing.
Not too far from the door, I noticed a girl built entirely of Legos. I wasn’t quite sure who her character was supposed to be, but my girls knew and ran to her side. To the left of her was a Lego Hulk. This grabbed my son’s attention and I must admit my own. Who doesn’t love the Incredible Hulk? Those two Lego statues acted as a line drawing us inside the store.
Near the center of the store was another Lego station complete with Lego statue and Lego merchandise. As I looked around I immediately thought the setup was well thought out. It appealed to the store’s target audience, children, as well as their parents. The store offered a fun and inviting atmosphere. As individuals made their purchases they were guaranteed the excitement of recreating more Lego fun at home.
