Ten years ago, selfie sticks were not a popular item found in every store. However, once the year 2014 hit, this item shot up in popularity. Selfie sticks became so popular that many attractions, such as museums and art galleries, altered their rules to discourage selfie stick usage. Now, Bluetooth selfie sticks are the newest version of this popular item. By understanding why the Bluetooth Selfie Stick rose in popularity, you can learn more about your customers’ pain points and become a better salesperson for this product.
Ease of Use (No Cords/Cables)
Even though this selfie stick uses Bluetooth, it does not have cords that customers will need to plug into the wall (like a ring light). It's easily portable and convenient since it works with nearly every type of phone. Customers can place their phones in the holder and take pictures via the selfie stick or shift the product into a tripod form for a hands-free experience.
Great for Snapping Pictures of Groups
Group selfies are not easy to take from a regular phone, as most people cannot extend their arms long enough to get the right angle. By extending the selfie stick or using this product as a tripod, customers can get an ideal picture every time. By being able to distance themselves from the camera, it expands the number of people who can comfortably join in the picture. No more people cut out of the pictures because customers can get the correct distance away from their phones.
Excellent Travel Accessory for Solo Travelers
Traveling solo is great, but taking solo pictures is not typically easy. This selfie stick is easily portable, as it can condense into a small size. Plus, picture-taking taking much easier as customers can easily achieve the best angle for photos (or videos).
What’s the difference between the original selfie stick and the Bluetooth version?
The primary difference between a standard selfie stick and a Bluetooth version is the ease of use. While using the original selfie stick, customers still had to manually press the button on their phone camera. Bluetooth selfie sticks include a button on the handle and, in some cases, a remote that customers can click to take photos. Because of this feature, Bluetooth selfie sticks have risen in popularity quickly.
Why you should consider including it in your storefront
Selfie sticks are not only for travelers but also an excellent choice for vloggers, bloggers, group photos, and other occasions. Since they're convenient and easy to transport, they make a great impulse buy for people who enter your store. Bluetooth selfie sticks are great for various customers, not only a select few.
The selfie sticks are also a great way for customers to stabilize their phones. Since the selfie stick holds their phones firmly, customers can get their videos or photos without worrying about their phones dropping out of the holder.
The versatility of this product, along with its high profitability as an impulse buy, are great reasons to keep this item near your cash register.
