Sound: The music you play in your store has such a profound yet subtle effect on how your customers behave in store. You can slow people down by playing more mellow music and causing them to browse, or playing Top 40 to communicate that you want teenagers in your store and so on. Smell: Believe it or not, there's an entire science to what's referred to as “scent marketing”. The reason being that smell is considered to be a fast track to the system in your brain that controls both emotion and memory, two very prominent factors behind why we choose one brand over another. Taste: This can work magic if you happen to be in the business of selling consumables, giving people the ability to taste and sample before they buy is the equivalent of letting people try on clothes, a general and effective best practice.Photo credit: Polly Redman
