How a baby travel brand used NearSt’s tech to increase footfall

Founded in 1999, Baby Travel has been an established player in the baby products market over the last few decades. As a specialist in baby high chairs, buggies and strollers, the team at Baby Travel pride themselves on stocking luxury brands such as iSafe, iVogue, Marvel, ZeTa, Optimum and more. Their in-store services include car seat installation as well as a dedicated customer service team to help parents find the perfect travel equipment for their children.

The Challenge

With big players like Mothercare deciding to close their doors at the end of 2019, but baby products remaining high in demand, Baby Travel wanted to make sure they were competing with online competitors and reaching shoppers searching for baby products in high street stores. The owner at Baby Travel, was specifically searching for ways to increase footfall to their showroom as he knew many travel baby products are to be tried and tested before being purchased.

The Solution

In a bid to continue spending smartly on advertising, Baby Travel found NearSt through Google Merchant Centre trusted Local Feeds Partner list. Baby Travel signed up and connected their Shopify system to NearSt in minutes, allowing them to show their in-store products across Google to shoppers searching for them nearby in a bid to increase footfall to his showroom.
