Other important elements in a musical instrument store
Having a wide variety of brands is also essential. Variety of brands, and variety of models within each instrument and each brand. It is important to cover the wide range of clients that we mentioned at the beginning of this article.
As we have said, the human team is essential to any store of musical instruments. The relationship with the client is key.
They must be specialists and be well trained to solve the doubts of any buyer. In addition, they have to love music. The ideal is a special. Otherwise it is not possible to sell this type of products well. Working on something that motivates, and more if it is music, is going to cause the store – client relationship to increase exponentially.
The figure of workshop specialists is something to keep in mind. A music store must necessarily have a good workshop with specific personnel such as string luthier, luthier-wind mechanic, piano tuner-technician, with professional capacity for repairing and tuning instruments.
It is not only about selling, but about giving a professional response to problems that may arise during the lifetime of the instrument. This is even more important if, as in our case, the music store also has a musical instrument rental service. The tuning to make the sound impeccable, is essential.
Finally, the store of musical instruments and all those who work in it must be convinced that you always have to contribute the maximum … and that you can always do something more. There has to be constant innovation and improvement in processes. In all fields. If something works well, you have to find a way to make it work even better.
