Packaging and marketing
As the world of ecommerce develops so do the expectations of customers who buy online. Years ago, packaging and shipping was simply a way to receive a product purchased online, but more and more people are looking for shipping, packaging and presentation as part of the ecommerce experience.
This expectation means that for many businesses, outside of selling commodities, competing effectively means going above and beyond to impress customers and exceed their expectations by delivering an experience, not just a product.
You can see from the packaging below that customer unboxing experience can really change the way your customers perceive your products.
Packaging is very central to your overall brand experience.
In a world where sealed factory bags and a black-and-white order receipt are considered standard, it’s the small details like this that go a long way in making an exceptional impression on customers and keep them return regularly to your store.
Today, some of the most successful and interesting brands are those using packaging to deliver an unboxing experience that goes beyond the product.
Consider how you can provide a better customer experience through your packaging, and how you can use packaging as an extension of your brand.
Before you can ship your products, you’ll need to package them for safe transport. So what options do you have? There are a few common options for packaging including boxes or envelopes (padded or unpadded). For many businesses and products, you’ll use a box as well as some other packaging materials to safely ship your products.
You may also want to try thinking outside of the box and look at other packaging options. For example, mailing bags and padded envelopes can be a great way to ship products that don’t need a lot of structure or cushioning, like clothing.
Mailing bags offer multiple benefits. They’re lightweight, which reduces your shipping costs and optimizes your storage space, and they can adjust to different volumes and weights depending on what’s included in the order. For example, the same size of mailing bag could accommodate one pair of socks, or five, and you wouldn’t be overpaying on packaging weight or dimensions for the single pair.

Keep it light and small
Because the cost of many shipping options is based on size and/or weight, do your best to keep your packaging as small as possible. This will not only help you save on your shipping costs and what your customer paid for shipping, but will also keep packaging costs from eating away your profit margin.
