Gotchas in Packaging Strategy and How to Avoid Them
Your customer makes quick decisions from the multitudes of products on the shelf, with the bulk of the decision often happening before they’ve read more than a few words from your product label. Color, imagery and shape are therefore powerful tools to convey quality, value, and the product’s ability to meet the consumer’s needs and pain points. Packaging is also key to customer retention, as these same features promote an automated grab-and-go purchase for repeat customers.
