The value of good packaging

The value of good packaging

Differentiating from competition is essential for a brand to be profitable and more attractive to our audience. From the moment our customers decide whether to buy our product, until the moment they take it home, the impression that our product causes will influence them. That’s why is necessary to give packaging the importance it deserves, since it is the first contact that our customers have with our product.

 

Packaging can help us to increase sales

Packaging is the traditional “boxing or wrapping” of our product. Any product can be wrapped in cartons, paper, plastic … It’s important because it’s the first thing our customers see, and of course, if it is an original packaging, it will attract more attention than a simple carton. What does this mean?

A marketing strategy is not limited to an advertising campaign or a catchy slogan. This means that even the smallest detail can become a marketing tool for your company. That’s why packaging is part of a marketing strategy, an element that shouldn’t go unnoticed.

It is not only important for those products sold in stores, but for those that are acquired by electronic commerce as well. The packaging is the presentation that we give to our product, so if it is not attractive or is neglected, our customers may prefer the product from our competition. Therefore, good packaging can directly affect the sales of our company.

While building your brand or branding, it is very important to highlight your design and what you want to transmit with it. That is why packaging is part of our brand image, as it transmits feelings to our customers. In addition, making the packaging of our product attractive can play in our favor, as it will make consumers remember our brand more easily.

Packaging innovation is not limited to one type of market; any type of business can surprise its customers with an original packaging. From phone companies to pre-packaged food businesses can differentiate themselves from the competition with this strategy. If we deal with an original idea or a striking graphic image instead of including advertising or traditional packaging, we can make our consumers to talk about us.

It may have happened to all of us at least once, being in front of two products that have the same function,  and opting for the one with the most colorful or attractive packaging. For example, if we want to buy cocoa cream and among the options we have, one of the brands offers us a glass container painted with colors we like, we probably take it home and give preference to that brand over the other.

 

Packaging and ‘online’ market.

Many of our customers are looking for a good product in their online purchases in addition to an elaborate packaging that can even be customized depending on the customer. If we make the packaging please our consumers, they may even share it through their social networks, spread our brand and repeat their purchase.

Unboxing is the moment when our client unpacks our product and spreads it through social networks. This trend is becoming more and more frequent in all kind of products. If the packaging is attractive, the customer will probably take a few minutes to talk about it, adding an additional value to our product.

Therefore, a good packaging, besides protecting the product, differentiates it from other brands and talks about it. The consumer will be able to differentiate our product just by seeing its packaging. And of course, it attracts customers and sells the product.

The SPAIN BRAND opportunity after the Brexit.

The SPAIN BRAND opportunity after the Brexit.

The SPAIN BRAND opportunity after the Brexit.

You say goodbye, we say hello.

 

After the refusal of the United Kingdom to remain in the European Union, the Brexit, a very different picture from the actual is taking place for the current markets. This exit from the common market brings many changes in terms of the relations between people living in the old continent: the people’s movement will no longer be free between EU countries and London, with all that this implies. But also companies and brands will have to rethink their strategies to make Europe a market without the United Kingdom.

It’s the opportunity now to strengthen the Spain Brand and all the Made in Spain products. With the changes that will arise, it is necessary to consider strategies that help position the country on the starting line to conquer the spaces that the UK is leaving free.

 

The Fintexit: the opportunity of Spanish entrepreneurs.

From 2010 to 2015, England had become a paradise for Fintech companies: while those located in that country managed investments with a value of 5400 Million dollars, those located in the rest of Europe remained in 4400 million dollars. This only fact let us know the importance that England has for this kind of companies.

But we don’t know what will happen to the Fintech companies located in the United Kingdom. Although it is still very early since the terms in which the Brexit will be developed are not known, there are several things already clear:

Brands from outside the EU who chose England to settle allowing them to enter the single market in optimal conditions, should reconsider their options. With the exit of this country from the EU, its conditions would change, so the new companies would not take England into account as an option to enter Europe.

The top corporation’s escape from London. Many multinationals that were established in the country have already announced that at least part of their activities would be transferred to the rest of the continent, making England’s business figures decline significantly.

The question now is to know the fate of these companies and brands. Other European countries, including France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Luxembourg are conducting attraction plans both for large companies and brands that are starting and the startups. What is clear is that the country that becomes England’s heir at this point, will achieve not only investment’s growth but attracting talent, and the option to become the Silicon Valley on the other side of the ocean.

This is where Spanish innovators have their chance to support the country so that it becomes a place where investments grow and also where new companies can stablish in order to portend a more favorable outlook for innovation projects.

 

Creativity Vs. Prices decreasing

Gone are the times in which in order to create a successful company this had to be settled in London. Moreover, in 2013 El Mundo newspaper published a story about the creation of the London Creative Circle, an initiative of Spanish entrepreneurs.

The things have changed now, and it is time for Spanish brands to place a bet in order to grow in a foreign country where no longer exist the same game rules as a few months ago. It is also time to seek new business models that allow them to grow in a different panorama.

The companies already established in the English-speaking country, or those who consider that their market is there, must focus on a common branding that allow them to distinguish themselves. But that Made in Spain brand will have to bet on innovation and creativity especially to fight against other startups from other countries.

While others will bet on lowering prices to maintain the consumption of their products, experts will bet for the development of strategies to build the identification of common values of a Spanish brand with the values of the English consumer. Here, the door of creativity upon the possibilities for Spanish brands will be opened: and the fact is, that Made in Spain creativity is highly valued, serving as an example the broad implementation of the Spanish fashion not only in England, but throughout the world.

Creativity, Quality and being different from the competitors should be the hallmarks of the Spanish brands. They should know how to offer an additional quality point to their customers to succeed in foreign countries, because the reduction of the prices will not be an option in such a highly competitive market that is thought will be created.

Therefore, the Spanish brands shouldn’t think about the Brexit as an obstacle but as an opportunity to succeed in foreign markets. There will be risks and is important to know how to calculate them in an accurate way, but facing the emergence of this new market, there are no previous experiences that can help to check them. For sure, offering good quality and great creativity, will be undoubtedly a synonymous of success.
