Promote your shop

If you work in the trade you know how important it is to promote yourself and the products and services you offer.

ACT and Cytech offer retailers a number of ways to increase promotion of their stores. If you work in the trade read on...

Improve your Experts promotional listing

The Experts specialist retail community, brings together a growing number of consumer sports and leisure websites to help consumers find invaluable information and advice about a variety of sports and leisure activities and the specialist businesses that enable participation.

The Experts  

If you are a retailer in the Creative, Cycles, Outdoor Pursuits or Snowsports market you can benefit from free promotion to hundreds of thousands of consumers every month.

Combining these specialist sectors under one community will generate additional consumer traffic - now over 4 million consumers per annum - and any future additions to The Experts community will extend the reach of businesses.

To be an expert you need to be a specialist business that will equip consumers with everything they need; products, services and of course expertise.

The detail of your business's promotion is down to you. The more you insert about your business the more likely you are to benefit from consumer searches.

To make even more of your listing you can create additional features to promote your shop, including Cytech accredited staff.

Display Cytech certificates

It sounds obvious but many Cytech accredited stores either do not display certificates or hide them away where customers cannot see them.

To get maximum benefit from your investment in Cytech, display certificates behind the sales counter or elsewhere on the shop floor.  Customers can recognise that you have invested in people and service and you can refer to them when talking about the service you offer.  Plus of course staff feel proud to see their achievement on show.

We recommend printing the certificate using the following specification:

Size: A4
Paper: 250gsm smooth uncoated
Printing: 4-colour

Display the Cytech logo

Why not add the Cytech logo to your website, marketing literature, advertising or company vehicle?  To display the Cytech logo you must have at least one member of staff with a Cytech technical two qualification or higher.

Email us to request the Cytech logo.
