Branding Drives Sales

Did you know that people spend more time viewing and interacting with a pizza box than the combined time spent with advertising, signage, building and service staff combined? Here’s the math:

Clearly, what that box says matters, so make it memorable and sharable.

With a thoughtful selection of packaging and a deliberate presentation of your product, you control the experience. Consider what you want your customers to think, feel and do with your product. It’s not only a chance to “wow” but also an opportunity to promote your business by creating an unusual experience people want to return to.

In fact, the value of a strategic brand experience extends far beyond the customer into residual marketing effects. Customers and your product can go viral. Even after the customer opens the box, they may opt to share the moment with their social networks. This invaluable endorsement separates you from competitors and creates a lasting impression.

Your brand is always communicating. So, say it in a way customers love to experience and share.

An interesting package creates a “wow” experience with your company. People love to share happy moments and come back for more.
