With the market volatility in the Alabama market combined with aggressive competition, setting the right pole sign price has become more challenging than ever.
Without real-time data, retailers are forced to follow the competition immediately otherwise risking a loss in volume. With these market challenges in mind, Tang Mart's goal is to increase volume and ditch the "blindly follow the competition" mindset.
Whether it’s staying above, below, or matching, retailers we’re speaking with tell us that the competition is the biggest factor when setting the pole sign price and Tang Mart is no different in this case.

Even a simple strategy, when executed well, will significantly outperform a ‘follow the competition’ model.
