How scents can increase your shop's productivity!


Scents are used in modern retail to increase sales. For example, in front of the sweets counter, some retailers put a licorice scent to increase sales. 

What is interesting is that studies here {Link was removed} show that smells increase work productivity. If you think about it smell does affect the mood, how we feel, and how we act. I know a bad smell can make me feel irritated and angry?

Looking at the list here, the best one for productivity appears to be peppermint.

The other problem here is that the chocolate scent which is good for retail marketing is not suitable for productivity. If you use this chocolate scent for marketing, consider switching to licorice.

If you want to try it, look at this chart summarizing the effect of 12 different scents, check it out the one you want, then get an air freshener as above, place it and see how it goes. 

As always, if you do try it, let me know how it goes.
