Packaging – a Major Factor in the Sale

December 16,2022

Donald Trump just released a major announcement, honestly, he is so funny. But we are serious. We decide to release a major announcement the same day. That is the packaging – a major factor in the sale.

Packaging is a critical factor in the sales of a product. It serves as the first point of contact between the consumer and the product, and can significantly impact a consumer’s decision to purchase.

How does packaging significantly affect the sale?

Effective packaging should be eye-catching and visually appealing, as it needs to stand out on store shelves and attract the attention of potential customers. It should also be functional, protecting the product during transportation and storage, and making it easy for the consumer to use.

In addition to its practical purposes, packaging can also serve as a means of communication, conveying information about the product’s ingredients, benefits, and branding. Clear and concise labeling is important, as it allows consumers to make informed decisions about the products they are purchasing.

Effective packaging can also differentiate a product from its competitors, setting it apart and making it more appealing to consumers. It can even serve as a marketing tool, creating a memorable brand identity and establishing a strong connection with consumers. 

How to get the most out of the packaging for your business?

Before you decide to seek outside help with packaging, it is important to provide the proposed supplier with clear guidelines on what you can afford, the quantity you will initially need, and you are currently expected to reorder cycle. Some suppliers may disqualify themselves because they are too big or too small for you, depending on the information you provide.

Experts are great, and I never shy away from hiring a good person whose services I need. But you should know that there are many places to go for packaging ideas. I myself like to shop at the cosmetics counter in department stores. (Cosmetic marketers are very innovative packages. How else can you charge so much for water and other obscure ingredients? If you don’t like the idea of hanging around the cosmetics counter, attend a packaging trade show or related industry trade show. Remember, you don’t necessarily have to see packaging for products similar to your own. Innovative packaging ideas that sell socks may also sell clocks.

We should not overlook the features in this discussion. Remember, packaging should inform and catch the eye of the consumer in a crowded store environment. I’ve seen many examples of dazzling packaging that ignores what’s inside the package. This is a mistake. In any case, your packaging should clearly communicate the potential benefits of your product to potential buyers.

In addition to marking the consumer and explaining the benefits of the product, the packaging must also protect that product. Depending on the nature of the product, the need for functionality may override the need for aesthetics. If your product is glass, your packaging needs to better protect the fragile stuff in the first place. (Light bulb packaging comes to mind. Point-of-sale considerations may also have a huge impact on your packaging. If your product is typically sold out of the box and not removed (usually for lower priced products), then full color, unique, easy to understand packaging that displays the product to the best effect may be the right packaging solution.

More importantly, be sure to place your company name and logo prominently on the package. It’s a free way to build your brand. This is a quite valuable thing to do in the long run.


In conclusion, packaging plays a crucial role in the sales of a product. It serves both practical and marketing purposes, and can significantly impact a consumer’s decision to purchase. Besides, we need to follow some meaningful tips, for example, packaging should be eye-catching, and design your company name on the package.
