How Companies Use Scent Marketing to Influence Buyers


fragrancex logo

Scent marketing has been used for years by companies across many industries to influence customer opinion, reinforce brand image or encourage sales. Scent is connected to parts of the brain that help us recall memories and experience emotion, which makes it a powerful subliminal tool.

How do companies use scent? It depends on the industry. For instance, Cinnabon bakes their cinnamon rolls towards the front of their stores so that the smell can easily travel outside of the shop. Since they are often in enclosed spaces (like malls), the smell is quite strong and encourages sales.

Companies can also use scent to reinforce brand image or create a certain atmosphere in their stores. For example, the scent of leather can inspire an image of opulence, leading customers to feel like the products sold there are luxurious. It is often used in upscale shops and storefronts.

Many gyms will use the smell of fresh linen to create or reinforce the illusion that their gym is extremely clean. Also, lemongrass can be used to energize and invigorate casino patrons or hotel guests.

There are numerous ways that scent marketing can benefit businesses both large and small. The below infographic from FragranceX delves into the subject a bit more!

Succession Planning for Small Business Owners [Infographic]


planning

Succession planning is an aspect of long-term business planning that many small business owners often neglect. In most cases, entrepreneurs are so absorbed in running their business that they fail to consider to whom, how, or when they should pass their business on.

Unfortunately, many businesses fail because they do not properly plan for the future. In fact, 70% of family businesses do not survive into the next generation due to a lack of adequately preparing a successor. So, how exactly do you begin the process of succession planning?

Here are a few considerations to keep in mind:

  • Identify a successor early on. If you have a candidate in mind, be it a family member, business partner, or an ideal employee, make sure you create a training and development plan, so they are equipped to lead in your stead when you leave.
  • Determine how to distribute your property. Once you leave, be it by design or circumstance, you will need to state in your plan clearly how your business interests are to be divided. Will the wealth pass on to your family, or be reinvested into your business?
  • Address outstanding debts and taxes. You should resolve any unfinished business in your succession plan as well. Essentially, you should leave clear instructions as to how your company should handle any fees or taxes once you’re gone.
  • Consult a lawyer. To make sure your succession plan is legally binding and adheres to regulations, you should talk to a legal expert.

To learn more about succession planning, like how to write one or how the benefits of structuring a plan, check out the infographic below:

Should You Always Listen to the Customer? [Infographic]


Customer

How your business interacts with customers is essential to its success. While hearing out customer complaints or feedback is helpful to determine what’s working or what’s not, there are times when it’s equally as important to move forward.

It’s easy to spend all of your time fixing what’s broken, but you may want to take a step back to evaluate if this is helping your business grow. If care is not taken, you may miss out on valuable opportunities to innovate, shock and surprise your customers, or challenge people’s thinking particularly if you’re an entrepreneur or business owner looking for ways to move the needle.

While listening to your customer is important, check out this infographic below by Valpak for a different perspective on the topic. They list company scenarios, marketing tips, and common customers you’ll face along the way.

How to Use Social Media Platforms to Grow Your E-Commerce Business.


For the longest time e-commerce business owners have maintained a safe distance with social media platforms. This is primarily because sellers that get in touch with their customers directly on these platforms were thought to hurt the e-commerce business. However, the two have started to work together to give customers a complete experience. E-commerce business owners can now use different social platforms for their advantage. Rather than thinking of them as an avenue, they do not want to explore, think of it as a fantastic opportunity.

Social media platforms can significantly improve the traffic on your e-commerce website and convert their users into customers. This can be supported by the statistic that reveals a staggering 52% of customer purchases being influenced by Facebook. Also, it has been seen that the e-commerce businesses that have strong social media standing do better regarding sales by an average of 32%. While these statistics reveal how dominant social media’s role can be in increasing traffic to your e-commerce site, here are some tips that you can use:

  • Look for the right platform. Even though 85% of the sales of e-commerce purchases derived from social media platforms are said to come from Facebook, you must do research. Find out what platforms are popular amongst your target audience and work towards making a strong presence there.
  • Keep an Eye out for Influencers. Find out which celebrity or famous individual your target audience has an inclination for. Use their support to make your business shine on different social media platforms. Influencers are a great way to get through to your target audience and make them engage with your business. If you do not know how to get the influencers to talk about your business, start by giving them an incentive to try it out.

Thus, it may be time for the relationship between social media platforms and e-commerce entities to change. You can start using the tips mentioned above to witness your e-commerce business thrive with the help of social media and also the infographic below might come handy as it shows key statistics from using these platforms.

What Your Desk Setup Says About You (Infographic)


www.temitopeadelekan.com

Building rapport with your coworkers can be essential to working productively and tackling team projects with ease. However, since our workdays are often filled with meetings, assignments, and calls, it can be challenging to make time to get to know your coworkers over lunch or a coffee break. While it’s a good idea to pay attention to the subtle ways your colleagues are communicating in conversation and nonverbally, there is another way to get to know your coworkers, just by looking at their desks.

Since so many hours of the day are spent at a desk, it’s unsurprising that they can grow to reflect the person who occupies them. Things like photographs of kids and spouses can indicate they are family-oriented, while pictures of their various travels can hint at an adventurous side. While these can spark a conversation on their own, they can also give you insight on how to work with them. For example, you may not want to send any emails to the family-oriented coworker after hours. Or, if you need some new out-there ideas for a brainstorm, ask the person with a picture of themselves hiking a mountain.

Whether you already have a great relationship with your coworkers or just starting a new job, there are insights their (workers) desks can tell you that they may never think to say to you themselves. All you have to do is decode them. To help you with translating what these desks mean, Fundera created this infographic that covers what their desks say about you and your coworkers:

Billionaires could solve your money problems.


pexels-photo-259027

With financial woes in the US piling up there is an extreme wealth disparity that keeps growing. According to a Washington Post article, the top 1% of Americans own more than the lowest 90% combined.

At this point, minimum wage jobs do not cover basic needs and $7.25 an hour keeps many working families in poverty while the debt keeps growing. The average American has over $6300 in credit card debt alone. That’s $12.6k for the over 40% of two-parent families in the US that are holding this kind of debt.

Students have been stricken with $1.5 Trillion in student loan debt, a number that has grown markedly over the last few years. The class of 2017 graduated with close to $40k in debt on average!

What could possibly help? Maybe billionaires are the answer. Though most would consider a cadre of billionaires getting together to be the start of a massive global conspiracy if the around 2200 billionaires on the planet decided to use their money for good collectively, what could they accomplish?

Luckily, you don’t have to search too far to find the answer. Below, our friends at Self Lender researched to see what financial good the richest of the rich could do if they just put their pocketbooks to it.

The results are astonishing! With likely less than most of these .00003 per cent of the population spend on a fancy vacation, the group of super-rich could quickly bring the minimum wage up to $15 an hour. Also, a slightly larger investment could eradicate all credit card debt in the US.

The infographic below shows what might happen if you could get every billionaire to give a little bit. In the meantime though, keep paying your premiums.
