Buying Decisions Made Easier
iDEA has a series of Buying Tools to assist retailers in making monthy title buying decisions.
Each month a panel of expert video retailers and successful store buyers participate in a discussion of upcoming DVD releases. They offer their opinions on which titles to buy and which to skip, and suggest purchase quantities for video stores based on a variety of criteria, like box office performance, star power & overall "rentability" compared to similar past movies.
You can now watch the Buying Guide Webcast on our new Hidden Gems YouTube Channel!
They also makes recommendations of lesser-known new releases with appealing artwork, actors and filmmaking that they believe will be strong renters... a.k.a. “Hidden Gems.”
Note: A title recommendation is not a guarantee of performance; retailers should ultimately decide product purchases based on their own market situation.
