It is worth mentioning, packaging tends to play an even bigger role for companies that have limited marketing budgets, since packaging becomes their main source of differentiation between them and their competitors. Therefore, in this article we explain the 5 components of product packaging that can help increase your product sales.


The colour of a product’s packaging is one of the most important components. Through the use of colours consumers associate a product with different meanings. For example, green is often used to represent recyclable materials. Colours also have the ability to evoke emotions in the consumers. Depending on the emotion triggered, customers may run to grab your product or they may never look at it again. For example, red can convey feelings of comfort or anger depending on the chosen shade of red. However, if done right, brands can build invaluable relations with their customers. Furthermore, having a unique brand colour allows consumers to instantly recognise the brand. It is also worth mentioning that the effects of colours on consumers tend to differ from culture to culture.


The shape of the product packaging is another important factor to consider. It may result in your product to stand out or to go unnoticed amongst all the other products.

When it comes to the text, the key unique selling points should be emphasised in a quick and clear manner on the packaging. Furthermore, it is recommended for brands to create custom fonts representing their brand which allows for better brand recognition amongst consumers.

Packaging Material Quality

Once the consumer has picked up the product, the quality of the packaging is the final determining factor. Packaging material primarily how the packaging feels. It is recommended to keep packaging of smooth texture to ensure the satisfaction of the customer.

The role of packaging does not end once the consumer has bought the product. Products tend to remain in the eyes of the consumers, their friends, and their family long after purchase. During this phase the packaging of the product is a marketing channel for your brand. Thus, it is critical to pay careful attention to your packaging since it not only affects the chances of your product being bought by your consumers but it also affects the chances of your product being bought by your consumer’s friends and family members.
