Forest confirms investment in digital assets to further enhance retail sales

Forest Garden have launched new digital assets in the form of a whole host of new videos via its YouTube channel, to ensure garden centres are armed with a wide range of retail tools to drive sales, as well as offering consumers access to valuable information to help them throughout the buying process 

Digital assets being launched at Glee will feature lifestyle and inspirational content combined with product focussed videos for Forest’s entire range including sheds, trellis, arches & arbours, pergolas and fencing.

The new videos ensure that retailers can provide consumers with the information they need to help them buy in confidence, making sales easier.  Each of the new videos have been created to inspire the consumer, allow them to make an informed buying decision and supply them with other information such as post-purchase maintenance and optional extras to encourage add-on sales.

Each video will be made available for retailers to embed as part of their own website content, as well as for use within any in store digital merchandisers.  Hosted on Forest Garden’s YouTube channel, the new videos will accompany others that have been well received amongst an engaged audience, with over three-quarters of a million views in total. 

Andrew Bendall, Forest Garden’s Marketing Manager, said: “Retailers are all under pressure to provide more content for their websites and social media marketing, yet many have neither the time nor facilities to put this into effect.  By increasing our selection of digital assets we hope to help provide our customers with useful content that reflects in improved sales, whether in store or online.” 

Forest’s most popular video is currently ‘How to Build a Shed Base’ with over 200,000 views, followed by ‘How to replace a damaged or rotten fence post’ with over 150,000 views to date.  Andrew added: “This not only demonstrates the popularity of our content, but the demand for specific advice that suppliers such as ourselves are best placed to provide in order to fully assist our retail partners.”
