The Importance of Attractive Packaging for your Business

Packaging is very important and it could mean that everyone buys your product, simply because they liked the color, size, or letters, or no one buys your package, and ignores it completely because it does not stand out. Your company may be selling the best product in the world, but if the package is unattractive, your product will sit on the shelf and eventually be returned back to your factory, causing a great loss for your business.

With marketing and social media advertising, a product will definitely have a lot of advantages to sell, but a memorable user-friendly package can do a lot for a product. Many companies overlook the importance of packaging, focusing only on the product, but not including high-definition images and instructions on the box, and many potential buyers may not understand what the product is, and move on to buy the competitors' products, all because the packaging was not attractive or eye-catching.

There are companies who focus on packaging and attract loyal customers because of brand loyalty. If your product happens to be a few extra dollars more than your competitors' product, but the packaging is attractive, your loyal customer will opt to buy your product.

Any business, small or large, needs to reach out to its customers with unique and captivating strategies in order to build a huge consumer base and this is where product packaging stands very important. For small business owners competing with big players, investing in packaging and good labeling can also be a good marketing initiative in business branding. Packaging influences product satisfaction, impacts shopping behaviour, and motivates consumers in global markets and therefore quality packaging technique is essential for a product to perform well in the market and hence benefit the business.

My name is John McCabe and I am the Marketing Manager of MS Packaging, a packaging solution provider across UK. I have created this infographic which revolves around the impact of packaging on products and consumers.
