In today’s busy, cluttered world, brands have just a few seconds to make an impression. Fail to capture the ounce of attention that makes us linger in front of a product, and they’ve lost a potential customer.
Before you even touch the product itself, brands have the opportunity to draw you in with their packaging. If a product is a full-length novel, then its packaging is the condensed, SparkNotes version, helping you decide whether you want to investigate further and commit to a purchase.
But shoppers aren’t only judging a book by its cover. They also want to know what the cover is made of.
“Packaging is increasingly the intersection of two major trends: e-commerce growth and concerns around climate change.” – Mike Newman, CEO of Returnity, a company that custom-designs reusable shipping bags and boxes. He notes, “Consumers continue to increase their e-commerce spend. At the same time, they are more aware of and concerned about the resulting packaging waste, resource consumption, and climate change it creates.”
As online competition heats up and shoppers expect products and brands they buy to align with their values, packaging is adapting accordingly.
How do you make your business stand out from other competitive brands? BestPack has a few suggestions to improve the way you package your products as well as your environmental impact.
