Mainstreet Australia provides support to Traders Associations to ensure they have the confidence and ability to positively contribute to the success of their main street or retail precinct. This includes professional development opportunities, and access to a library of articles and resources and Conferences.
Here are two interesting videos from the recent Mainstreet Conference - along a few points of interest to think about.
Enhancing the experience economy - WATCH
- People buy experiences not just products/ services - be less transactional and more experiential focussed
- Traders who resist change will struggle, those who embrace it will thrive
- It's never too late to create a new routine or ritual - for yourself or your customers/ clients
- Traders are our local celebrities/ influencers - share your personal and business story
Conscious and sustainable solutions - WATCH
- Don't just replace plastic straws with paper straws - go straw free
- Encourage use of Keep Cups again - use has dropped since COVID
- Discourage plastic bags - don't just automatically give them out
- Share your story - tell people what you're doing
