Tips to Help Your Customers Have a Knockout Unboxing Experience and a Dramatic Moment of Reveal
Bill Madl January 25, 2018

If you sold your product in a brick-and-mortar store, you’d want your customers to associate your brand with an easy, pleasant, and even fun shopping experience to ensure repeated purchases. Shouldn’t their unboxing experience be all of that–and more?

As an entrepreneur in e-commerce, you have the opportunity to not only wow your customer with your product, but to dazzle them with a “moment of reveal” in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. The impact can be powerful. In fact, surveys indicate that over 50% of all online shoppers become repeat customers when they are satisfied with the product and packaging they received.

TIPS TO HELP YOUR CUSTOMERS HAVE A KNOCKOUT UNBOXING EXPERIENCE

The following 5 tips will help you make a splash with your product and keep the ripples flowing.

TIP #1. Make your branding stand out from the moment your packaging arrives at your customer's doorstep.
Your brand name and/or logo should be clear on both the inside and the outside of your packaging, and not be limited to just the box. Consider adding your branding to packaging materials such as tapes and tissues as well.

TIP #2. Brighten their day with color, including the shredded paper inside the package. packaging and share it with their friends and family.
In a world of plain cardboard and bubble wrap, bright colors make the unboxing experience a little more special, maybe even eliciting some social media photo shares!

TIP #3. Prioritize function
Make sure the packaging is easy for your customer to work with, avoiding complicated unwrapping procedures that require anything more than the kitchen scissors. Also, if your packaging is damaged or doesn't look appealing, your customer may think the same of your products.

TIP #4. Say thanks.
Insert a thank you note in the package for your customer, signed by hand if possible. It's just another special touch letting your customer know that they are important to you.

TIP #5. Find a packaging company that takes the time to meet your needs.

Realizing that there are fewer "touch points" in getting your product direct to a consumer through e-commerce makes it critical that your packaging quality be functional, eye-appealing, and unique.
