Advertising and packaging are two fundamental elements of any sure-fire marketing strategy. If harmonized properly, these elements can work positively for any business. Of course, they belong to different spheres and triggers different reactions amongst the customers and clients. However, if we increase their dependency on each other strategically, it will result in an award-winning marketing strategy.
Is advertising more affordable in comparison to packaging?
When I speak about advertising, I am mentioning the print media and television advertising. They are major components of advertising products to a wider customer base. As said by many experts, product packaging itself is a passive advertiser. And the cost of effective packaging is much lower than that of television advertisements.
Debatably, all the consumer products or goods are not advertised on the national or international television. But, all the consumer items are supported by a quality packaging solution. This shows how products packaging, if not alone, is a major means of communicating to your targeted audience.
However, due to some latest trends, television advertising does help businesses larger their product niche. Another big platform of product advertising is the internet. You might have seen a number of sponsored links, videos, audio clips and pop-up on websites placed in order to advertise or promote specific products or services.
In this highly competitive market, a proper product packaging can put you far ahead of your competitors. But unfortunately, some new startups and small-scale businesses are not paying the deserved attention to the right set-off of packaging and advertising.
Role of Different Product Marketing Component
Simply put, advertising is devoted to inspire the end users to reach the outlets or malls where your products are available for sale. And this is when the role of packaging begins. Effective packaging catches the heart and trust of the consumers and makes them buy the product. As you can see, advertising can boost the traffic to stores and packaging generates revenues.
Many products can’t be advertised on the television without showcasing its package; food items, health and beauty products, and beverages are to name a few. Packaging is shown either in the beginning or at the end of the advertisement. If you want to appeal the consumers with the sound and smell, you can use a package that can store a nice aroma or flavor till someone open it.
Advertising of the product is the sole responsibility of the brand manager or marketing head in your company. But, it requires an input of experienced packaging company to bring these two different realms together for the best results.
