Choose Corrugated Boxes for Your Product Packaging Needs

Many small business owners believe they constantly need to be expanding the envelope in terms of what they offer customers and clients. They constantly feel the need to outdo the competition. While this can be a healthy thing for your business, like all relationships, are more emotional than logical.

Take the average customer for example. He or she can go to a few stores to pick up a product he or she is interested in. When he or she chooses a business, he or she will choose one he or she feels comfortable in. He or she knows he or she is giving the business, and therefore the people behind the business, his or her money.

Many, many things about each business will be judged by this customer. The interior decoration, the rest of the products or services being offered, his or her interactions with sales staff, and other potential customers in the store. Even the way the products look and feel will be judged.

This is not to state that this customer will be negatively judging a business; just that he or she is looking for a business that most closely connects with him. Every business relationship is really a relationship between the customer and the business owner. Business owners are reflected by the way they manage their stores. As such, the way a store looks and feels, and the way products look and feel, is a personal reflection of the business owner himself, or herself.

This is why you should use corrugated boxes. There is no risk in harming your marketing or potential revenues if you go with boxes. Boxes are common. People have come to accept boxes as the major form of product packaging. You literally cannot lose, even if the choice to go with cardboard packaging does seem unoriginal and common.

It is best to save your creativity for decisions where creativity matters more, like in your product development or advertising.

Boxes are Common and Accepted

You can make more zany marketing choices than Lady Gaga if you want. However, like Lady Gaga, your changes will either be accepted or met with looks of confusion. You run the risk of isolating or alienating a customer if you cannot connect with him or her.

As such, if you are unsure of a decision in business, especially one as radical as product packaging, you should simply follow the conventional wisdom of your industry and do what your competitors do. This is the power of cardboard boxes.

Corrugated boxes are strong, can weather the weather, and are very versatile. Practically any product, from the very small to the very large, from the most fragile to the least fragile, can be housed in a corrugated cardboard box. It is what many customers have come to expect, and appreciate, when they receive their products.

Regardless of whether you ship your products to your customers at their homes, or if your customers can pick up their items at the store or even from the shelves, customers appreciate a stable and common packaging choice like boxes. There is zero risk in choosing to use cardboard and this is why using boxes may be one of the best marketing decisions you can make. You literally cannot lose!
