When you make a product, the packaging is an important element to impress your customers. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the things you need to know about packaging.
What is packaging?
It is an English word that indicates the packaging of a product. Its creation aims at advertising a product in order to pass a specific message. It is not only an external envelope but also an element that demonstrates the brand of a product. It also provides the necessary information about the product. Indeed, the packaging is the key factor for the success of a product.
Types of packaging
From a general point of view, there are three categories of packaging:
This is the packaging that the customer sees first when he takes the product.
This is the packaging that groups several products together. For example, stores that sell cookies in packages or cartons of drinks.
It is used to transport products in large quantities. In a classical way, here are the different types of packaging:
It is manufactured according to the customers’ tastes. It is, therefore, necessary for the company to ask for some information about the customers in order to adapt the packaging to order and satisfy them. Personalized packaging gives more value to your product. This small detail will make your customer come back to consume the product. When people like the packaging, they are automatically interested in the product. It also allows you to challenge the competition. Its realization is a way to differentiate yourself.
It will bring to the company a product that challenges the competition. It is also an element of seduction towards the consumers. For this, you must bring out your personal touch. This kind of packaging is adapted to the size of the product. In this case, you need to know your target audience.
Thus, it will increase sales. With this method, your sales will increase as you go along. The consumer will immediately want to discover the contents of the packaging.
It is used by online businesses that are committed to preserving the environment. Indeed, it is a packaging made of recycled products. Among its advantages, it saves you money. For example, adjusting the packaging to the size of the product will reduce the material used for its design. But also it will reinforce the image of your product. Consumers always choose companies that are serious about the environment.
For products that are very expensive. This type of packaging is for people with large wallets. It must protect the product from the moment it leaves the company until it arrives at the customer’s home. The packaging of industrial products must be adapted to the nature of the product as well as the characteristics of conservation. For example, a bottle will not have the same packaging criteria as a plastic tube. Since the product to be packaged is very expensive, the packaging must reflect the quality of the product.
The advantage of packaging compared to other means of communication.
Packaging is a means of communication from the moment of purchase of the product: the consumer can judge the quality of the product. Let’s take the case of cereals: we can see the necessary information on the boxes right away. The outer packaging will give you an idea of the quality of products like shampoo or wine. The choice of packaging should depend on the distribution channel. For example, for sale on the internet, the packaging must be solid, i.e., with protective elements such as foam or curl.
