Why your packaging is just as important as your product

Packaging

As the brand manager, you are all too aware of how packaging influences consumer response to your product. Yet just how much influence packaging has in consumer decision-making is often underestimated. According to a 2019 Ipsos survey on purchasing decisions affecting customers, most people interviewed agreed that packaging design (72%) and the materials used to package (67%) strongly influence their purchase choices.  

Often, purchasing choices tend to be more emotional than strictly logical. The visual footprint of a product’s package generates emotions, which in turn lead to decisions. In the battle for customer’s attention, what are the factors that lead to emotional choices towards one product or the other? One of the most important is the product’s “feel”, the combination of graphics, shapes, and textures that shapes the product’s appeal. Your favorite brands have one factor in common: they are all memorable. That is why innovative technologies and customization are the new battlegrounds of retail and e-commerce, and at the forefront of people’s holistic and constantly evolving perceptions of goods.
