Buy me a coffee or tip me on or .
Tai Hua Supermarket had renewed new contracts with all theirsuppliers. The new rates were cheaper, but Tai Hua Supermarket also allowedthem to hold promotions.
Tai Hua Supermarket gave them an excellent position todisplay their products and also help them to showcase their products in aspectacular way to attract customers. The suppliers were also allowed topromote their products in other ways. For instance, Lehaha was having apromotion for their latest product. Milk Tea.
There was a 2 meters giant poster of the Little Tigers and ayoung model. The Little Tigers were holding a cup of milk tea each and offeringto the female model. The female model was smiling and did not know which tochoose.
Just the Little Tigers poster was enough to attract lots ofshoppers. There was also a table beside the poster, and there were many smallcups on it. The scent of milk tea was everywhere.
These were not the only things that attract shoppers. Behindthe table, there were a few young and pretty girls. They were all air stewardesstrainees. They were standing there, attracting shoppers.
One of them was holding a microphone: “Lehaha’s latestproduct, Taiwanese Bubble Milk Tea. A new beverage which you all have nottasted before. Come and look at this cup. Can you see the black pearls? Caneverybody smell the fragrance of this tea? This is Lehaha’s newest product.U.Loveit Bubble Milk Tea!”
A good promotion cannot only have people standing theretalking about the product. There must be an insider among the crowd!
A bespectacled man asked. “I had tried Taiwanese milk tealast year when I went to Taiwan. Is your milk tea authentic?”
“It is not up to me to say whether if this tea is authentic.You see this sign here? Free sampling! Let’s invite this gentleman to have a tasteand see if it is authentic.”
Some milk tea was poured into a small cup of about 50ml.This was the smallest paper cup available in the market.
The bespectacled man took a sip and opened his eyes wide inan exaggerated manner: “Hmmm…… This is the taste. It is exactly the same aswhat I tasted in Taiwan! Delicious!”
After saying that, he drank two cups.
The second insider among the crowd appeared. “I thought itis milk tea? What are you chewing?”
“Pearls. This is Bubble Milk Tea, and there are pearls init. It is delicious. But it’s a pity that this Bubble Milk Tea is not availableelsewhere in China.” The bespectacled man said.
“Is it really that delicious? Are these free samples? Let metry one cup.”
“Ok. Sir, place come over and try.”
“Wait, if I do not like the taste and do not buy after Idrank the free samples, will I be allowed to leave?” The second insider asked.
There some shoppers who wanted to try the samples, but theyimmediately stop. That’s right. If I tried the sample, then I will have to buyit. What if this product is costly?
“Rest assured. We will not force anyone to buy. Even if wewant to do that, the supermarket staffs will stop us. This is China, and we areall reasonable people. Everyone has a different taste. I do not dare to claimthat everyone here will like it. It’s normal for some people to prefer tea,milk, fruit juice, or carbonated drinks. Don’t worry, and just try it.
After the second insider tried the sample and swallowed thepearl, he said: “This taste good. Oh, why are there different color packagingfor the tea?”
“These are different flavors. The one you tried is theoriginal favor. We still have fragrant yam, red bean, wheat, chocolate, coffee,etc. These different colors stand for different flavors. There will surely onefavor that suits your taste.”
Fragrant Yam was just yam. But just yam does not soundattractive. So it was named as fragrant yam.
“Can I try one more cup?”
“Of course. Change the paper cup for this gentleman. This willprevent the taste of different flavors from mixing together. If there is anyoneelse that want to try our samples, please queue up here. If you like ourproducts, you can purchase them over here. We are having a promotion now. Buy 2and get 1 free. This promotion is only for 3 days……”
The salespeople kept promoting the milk tea, and those airstewardess trainees poured samples for the shoppers. When the tea was used up,they will open a new packet and use hot water to make the milk tea in front ofthe shoppers.
The other shoppers who passed by, saw many people queuing upfor the free samples given out by pretty girls. They were also curious andjoined the queue.
Someone once said that if 5 people were standing in a row,passers-by will join in and start queuing without knowing the reason. Mostpeople will think that there must be good stuff or bargains if people queuedup.
Now, more and more people were queuing, and the long queueattracted more shoppers.
Some of the shoppers tried the milk tea and liked the taste.They heard that there was a promotion now for the tea. Although 2 RMB for a cupof Milk Tea was too expensive for many people, there were still shoppers whofelt it was a good deal. After all, this was Taiwanese Milk Tea, and it wasdelicious.
Most of the shoppers who bought the milk tea took 4 cups.With the 2 free cups, they will be able to try all 6 flavors.
The milk tea on the shelves was cleared quickly, and thesupermarket staffs restocked it immediately.
Feng Yu smiled when he saw the long queue in theSupermarket. There were more people interested in such promotions than in the future.
The production cost of this milk tea was 50 cents per cup.The supplier rates given to Tai Hua Supermarket was 1 RMB. Even if thepromotion and marketing cost were added, the total cost was less than 1 RMB.Tai Hua Supermarket’s retail price was 1.80 RMB. This was to let the shoppersfeel that it cost less than 2 RMB, and it was 20 cents cheaper than places.
In this cold weather, having a cup of hot beverage feltgood. Also, this milk tea smells really lovely, and many shoppers who did notqueue up for the samples also bought a few cups because of the promotion.
Most of the customers who bought the milk tea were youngadults. They had just started work and were not interested in saving money.They like to try out new things. Another group of customers was young parents.They bought some for their children.
These parents only treated milk tea as a regular beverage.This was better than giving their children cold carbonated drinks in this coldweather.
After the supermarket closes at night, Lehaha staffs and thesupermarket staffs tally their total sales for the day.
When the figures were tabulated, the staffs could notbelieve their eyes. They counted again twice to confirm if they had gotten theright number. Today’s promotion had created an extraordinary sales volume.
How many cups of milk tea were sold in all 20 branches? Thiswas only the first day. There were still two more days before the promotionends. 3 days later, there will not be any promotion staffs stationed at thesupermarkets. But the buy 2 get 1 free promotion was still ongoing. This willlast for a week. The sales of this one week should be more than what theyforecast in one month!
The sales potential of Tai Hua Supermarket was astonishing!
