Well, not always!
A jaw dropping, amazing product could be completely overlooked if it doesn’t grab the consumer’s attention right away. It is the unique and beautiful packages that get noticed. If you haven’t already thought about your product packaging, now is the time to get your creative juices flowing.
Never underestimate the power of flawless, branded packaging!
What Counts as Packaging?
Packaging isn’t just a dull brown cardboard box that the postman leaves outside your front door. It can encompass everything and anything that comes with your product when your customer has it in their hands. Have you ever slowly pulled on an attractive ribbon to reveal a stunning product inside a pristine box or read a handwritten note as you unravel neatly packed tissue paper? Every element of this packaging will have been carefully considered by the brand to enhance the customer’s experience and add value to the product.
Choosing Perfect Packaging
There are many elements that define great packaging that is going to appeal to your customers. Your perfect packaging should be able to add value, portray your brand positively, keep the product safe and identify the contents. If you are looking at your current packaging right now and it doesn’t hit all of these points, it might be time to reconsider your branded packaging.
Perfect packaging can come in an array of sizes, shapes and styles so use your creative flair to find the ideal pouch, pod, packet or pocket to make your product even more special, and then decide how you will brand this packaging to make it part of your product identity.
The Beauty of Branding
If you are running an independent business or a larger scale company, you have the opportunity to make your products stand out from every other competitor in your market. Putting a personal touch, such as your brand, onto your packaging will take your business to the next level and an improvement in the overall experience of your products will lead to an increase in recommendations and sales.
It is so important to play to the strengths of your brand. For example, if you are a beauty company who creates vegan and all-natural products, you might want to consider branded eco-friendly packaging to match the ethical side of your brand.
If you create an enjoyable experience for your customers, it is likely that they will want to share these moments on social media. We all know how powerful these platforms can be for emerging businesses, so keep this in mind when choosing your packaging too. And always ensure that the product packaging design you choose is clearly part of your brand!
Stunning packaging means more sales for your product. It really is that simple!
Every consumer loves to be intrigued by a quirky and unique design, so why not challenge yourself to exceed their expectations? As soon as you find the brilliant balance between practicality and creativity for your branded product packaging, your items will be selling like hot cakes in the shops and online!
