PRLog - March 27, 2014 - FORT LEE, N.J. -- Every retailer wants to take part in the multi-billion dollar bridal and baby gift market, and with MyRegistry.com's functionality, they can join over 500 other e-commerce sites and become part of a global gift registry network. MyRegistry.com is the premiere destination for universal gift registry services and gives customers the flexibility to choose items from any store in the world—whether it's a local mom and pop shop with no website or a national chain superstore. In addition, MyRegistry.com eliminates the burden of returning and exchanging unwanted or duplicate gifts. When a retailer adds the universal gift registry functionality to their website, they’re adding to their bottom line and therefore, will ultimately increase sales. Giving a customer access to MyRegistry.com strengthens the retailer's ability to gain registrants, which adds to their customer base and leads to more conversions.
Here are five reasons every merchant should have the MyRegistry.com widget on their site:
1. IT’S WHAT THE CUSTOMERS WANT
More customers will register with a retailer when they offer a Universal Gift Registry because it gives users the flexibility to add gifts from any store in the world, starting with their store, onto one cohesive gift registry. No one wants multiple registries or wish lists; it’s much easier to manage and use one registry for all stores and occasions.
2. EXTRAORDINARY MARKETING OPPORTUNITES
Giving customers the chance to utilize MyRegistry.com gives the retailer the opportunity to reach out to this new customer base. The information they receive from these new registrants gives them the capability to directly market to them with eBlasts, discount opportunities, sweepstakes and social media postings. These tools are extremely powerful to help increase registry business, store branding and ultimately, sales and profit.
3. INCREASE YOUR BRANDING AND VISIBILITY
MyRegistry.com uses branding in every place possible--starting with new registrant emails to logos appearing next to each registered product on a registry. It’s extremely important for new customers to discover brands and to have logos imprinted in their minds. Logos of smaller retailers will appear in the same manner as giants such as Target and Amazon, which lends to credibility and visibility.
4. PROVIDES REGISTRANTS WITH TOOLS TO SPREAD THE WORD
MyRegistry.com gives registrants tools to let family and friends know about their registry. Using e-nouncements, as well as our popular Facebook and text messaging apps, registrants will maximize the number of visitors to their registry, giving retailer’s products more exposure to potential buyers.
5. HELPS OPTIMIZE RETAILER’S ONLINE BUSINESS
MyRegistry.com provides reporting on their Merchant Dashboard that helps to manage retailer’s inventory. By tracking all customers who have opened registries and all gifts added to any registry from their website, retailers will have the data to better understand customer buying patterns and product preferences.
