Not Just Entertainment….A Marketing Asset with Tangible Benefits:

  • Create and differentiate your brand: The tempo, loudness, and style of the music you play can help communicate your brand’s personality to customers.
  • Build the right atmosphere: Research shows that the music you play affects not only the store’s environment, but also shoppers’ moods and feelings.
  • Encourage people to buy: Music can influence what shoppers choose and how much they buy. A 2005 study revealed that people tend to spend more on impulse buys when pleasant music is playing.
  • Increase productivity: In a 2013 research by DJS, 77% of businesses agreed that their staff is more productive when music is playing.

We can also couple background music with our Digital Signage and Business Scenting offerings to create a multi-sensory customer visit experience, including sight, sound, and smell.
