Can your packaging reach out and touch someone? Can the consumer smell it? Does the visual design draw attention to the product? Does it capture the brand and product message in a way that engages your target demographic?
Are you confident it will cut through the clutter of marketing messages and point of purchase distractions to reach people when it counts?
What if you could answer yes to these questions and increase your packaging’s return on investment? Would you be interested? Read on, my friend. This stuff is mind blowing.
Visual Differentiation Is Not Enough
With so many products fighting for attention on a declining number of store shelves—thanks to Amazon, other e-tailers and warehouse clubs—it’s critical for your product to stand out, and visual differentiation is not enough.
Martin Lindstrom’s groundbreaking research detailed in his book “Brand Sense” discovered that 83% of all commercial communication appeals only to one sense: our eyes. Lindstrom then explains how the most successful brand managers use strategies to integrate packaging that appeals to all five senses—touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound.
