Garden products supplier Forest Garden adds videos to sales armoury

Forest Garden is urging retailer customers to utilise the company's 23 new videos to help boost sales.

The lifestyle and product focussed videos, can be accessed from Forest's website at or via the company’s YouTube channel (Forest Shows You How).

Forest Garden customers can also download the videos from its marketing suite portal to embed on their own websites, or add to video and TV displays instore to further drive interest and educational content at the point of purchase.
The new video content – ranging from one to six minutes in length - features buying guides, practical hints and tips, step-by-step installation guidance, inspirational style advice and information, all led by Matthew Biggs.

Forest’s entire product portfolio is catered for including sheds and fencing, arches and arbours, gazebos and pergolas, furniture, decking and trellis, grow-your-own essentials and the latest range of log cabins. 
Forest marketing manager Andrew Bendall said: "Retailers are under increasing pressure from consumers to provide more content for their websites and social media activity.  By introducing this selection of digital assets we hope to help provide our customers with useful content that reflects in improved sales, whether in store or online.

"Additionally, we want to help to inspire the consumer, enabling them to make an informed buying decision, as well as supplying them with other information such as post-purchase maintenance and optional extras to encourage add-on sales.
"Our digital content is ready and waiting for retailers to take advantage of.  We’ve already had fantastic feedback from those that have already started to use content both online and instore, and hope to see many more retailers coming on board."
