Dirty Touch Screens in Electronics Stores Keep Customers Away. Increase Sales with This Quick Tip

The Big Box Challenge: Keeping Touchscreen Floor Samples Clean

We’ve touched on how dirty your phone screen is before, but it bears repeating: DEVICE SCREENS ARE DIRTIER THAN TOILET SEATS. If you look down at your phone right now, there’s at least three finger smudges, questionable crumbs, and an eyelash for good measure.  Think about how often you play on your screen in between trips to the bathroom, gym, office, and dinner table.  Dirty touch screens are as common as cat pictures on Buzzfeed. Imagine you work the electronics department of a national retailer.  If your phone is grosser than a toilet seat, then the display tablets and phone screens in stores are the edge of a port-a-potty on Sunday night of Lollapalooza. Sticky, unnaturally warm, and questionably smelly.  Nice visual, right?

On an unrelated note, this is extremely smart.

In stores with a high level of foot traffic, dirty touch screens will keep customers away, guaranteed.  A close look at an iPad Mini Retina screen typically  reveals Dorito stains, greasy fingerprints, and remnants of a recent crime. Glances at Surface Pros and Thinkpads reveal similar states of scum.  A typical customer will not walk out of your store with the best experience to share with friends and family.

Smudges make a $300 product look like a high school science project.

It’s challenging enough that buyers come in the store to play with the tangible product and maybe make a purchase online later.  But when they are turned away by the filthy appearance and greasy feeling rather than a smooth, responsive screen…Well, it’s a tough realization knowing that a great customer just walked out after a poor first impression.

It’s not just the screen that gets dirty, either. It’s highly recommended you clean the entire device.

So what can be done to continue improving the experience your customers have?  Well, you offer something huge that an online E-tailer doesn’t: tangibility. Face to face customer service.  An environment for qualitative product research.  Here’s how you can make the most of what you offer and eliminate dirty touch screens for good.
