Top 4 things you MUST know about selling Archies Thongs

1. ARCHIES THONGS HAVE A TIGHTER STRAP THAT CAN BE STRETCHED: Archies Thongs are designed with a tighter strap than normal thongs, however, if the strap is too tight, it is very easy to decrease the strap tightness by stretching the strap and toe pole with your hands in the sections where it feels too tight. When a customer tries the thongs on, you should always ask them how the strap feels and stretch if for them if required. In fact, when we sell the thongs at Events, it is common that we pre-stretch up to 50% of all the thong straps either before or after the customer tries on the thongs so that the strap is more suited to their foot shape. Customers absolutely love this as they feel they are getting a more tailored service!

    2. ARCHIES THONGS ARE A REASONABLY NARROW FITTING THONG: In terms of fitting and width, Archies Thongs are a reasonably narrow fitting thong so do not be concerned if the outside edge of your customer’s foot hangs over the outside edge of the thongs as this is the normal fit for Archies Thongs. The most important thing is that the thongs are comfortable and the orthotic sits in the correct position on the foot.

    3. SNUG FIT IS BEST FOR ARCHIES THONGS: In terms of fitting and length, a tighter / snug fit where there is minimal room between the end of the toes and the end of the thong is best as if you go too big terms in terms of length the orthotic does not sit in the correct position on the foot.

     4. HOW TO RECOMMEND THE THONGS - WHAT TO SAY: Archies Thongs more or less sell themselves, however if you want more people to experience the extreme comfort of Archies Thongs and the potential benefits that the design offers over typical thongs, then there some important things we recommend to do and say. Obviously, the more people that are aware and educated about the issues of the design of typical flat thongs and the advantages that Archies Thongs potentially offer over these other thongs, then the more people will take up your recommendation.

    If you have the time to spare, we simply suggest that with each of your customers that the therapist or store owner says something along the lines of, 'Did you see the Archies Thongs out there on the display stand? They are the most comfortable thongs I have ever worn in my life and they are much better for you than flat thongs. Do you wear thongs at all?'. If they say yes, then you can go on to educate the patient as to what the problems are with normal thongs and how the Archies Thongs Design addresses these issues. If they say ‘I don’t wear thongs’, then you can ask ‘How come you don’t wear thongs?’. Very often you will find that Archies thongs solves these problems and they will be thankful that you have pointed this out to them. Customers also absolutely love the idea of wearing Archies Thongs as an in and around the house slipper to save walking on hard tiles and floorboards, especially if they are orthotic wearers!
