Training Project for small business of Pontevedra “Plan a tu medida I, y II”
Year: 2010 and 2011. Location: Pontevedra, Spain. Title: Project for the Provincial Council of Pontevedra.
A pioneering project to provide on-site advice and training for small shops in Pontevedra. The made to measure Planning I and II course was delivered 60 businesses across the province of Pontevedra. Spain.
In order to help small businesses, the Pontevedra Provincial Government launched the "Made to Measure" Plan in the second half of 2009. A training activity designed and delivered by MARKETING-JAZZ with an innovative format: Offering free tailored advice in Visual Merchandising to 20 previously-selected stores with an interest in differentiating themselves through the image and presentation of their product.
The training project was developed in three stages:
- During the month of September a customised report was prepared assessing the image of each establishment. This document also included recommended actions and creative proposals to improve each shop.
- In October, two specialists taught 5 hours of onsite training in each of the shops, teaching how to improve product presentation with their own resources.
- In December, the same Visual Merchandising specialist visited each shop to check how the traders followed the instructions. The plan works!
