ELEVATING
THE CUSTOMER
EXPERIENCE
The Impact of
Sensory Marketing
Global Research Report | Published January 2019
INTRODUCTORY
NOTE
We all know the story. With the advent of the Internet and online shopping, consumers
have access to more information and more options than ever before. They’re fully in charge
and are actively making decisions across both online and offline channels. But despite the
seismic growth of online shopping, brick-and-mortar still plays an important role. David
Kepron summarized the role of B&M quite well in Retail (r)Evolution:
“In a world in which products and services are ubiquitously available, we buy where we’re
given the best experience. Physical retail is becoming the place to explore, to be romanced,
to be entertained, to share moments. It’s where smart brands are making authentic
connections with their consumers, simply because those compelling experiences cannot be
found on a website.”
Over the past several years, retailers have been looking with greater intensity at new ways
for customers to interact and engage with the brand and its products on a more personal,
tangible and emotional level. One area of focus that continues to garner renewed attention is
sensory marketing.
While traditionally viewed as a more supplemental tactic, often taking a backseat to more
immediate considerations such as positioning, price and promotion, retailers are beginning
to realize that a strong sensory marketing strategy is critical in the effort to resonate with
customers and build more personal and emotional connections.
It’s no easy effort to design an engaging sensory experience, let alone to measure and
justify the impact of the subjective creative decisions and tactics designed to meet
such seemingly “soft” objectives. This is especially problematic when executives and
shareholders are looking for hard numbers that drive bottom line performance.
With so much at stake, “we think it matters, so we’d like to do this” can be a hard sell. The
pitch is much stronger when backed by research and data that supports the argument and
idea. It’s especially powerful when amplified by the voice of the consumer.
As the global leader in elevating the Customer Experience, Mood
Media is committed to listening to that voice.
That voice tells us that sensory experiences matter. 78% of
consumers globally cite “an enjoyable store atmosphere”
as a key factor in choosing brick-and-mortar over
ecommerce, and 90% say they’re more likely to revisit a
business that leverages music, visuals and scent.
We’re excited to deliver the results and findings from our most
recent quantitative and independent study where we asked
more than 10,000 consumers around the world what they most
enjoy about the in-store shopping experience. We sought to learn which sensory elements
have the greatest influence on customer attitudes and behaviors when shopping.
What did we take away from the study? In summary...
+ Sensory marketing matters
+ Customers are influenced by and respond to their sensory environment
+ Investment in a sensory marketing strategy can pay meaningful dividends
We hope this study provides you with new insights and that it serves as a source of
inspiration and fresh ideas. At the very least, we believe you’ll begin to look at things
differently, listen more intently, feel with greater purpose and be more conscious of all that
surrounds you and your customers when you consider the evolution of the in-store Customer
Experience.

OUR GOALS
The purpose of our study was to gain a better
understanding of the broader impact of the sensory
experience on shopper perceptions and behavior. In
particular, we wanted to measure the impact of audio
(music), visual (digital screens), tactile (touch/feel) and
scent (smell) stimuli (NOTE: the sense of taste was not
included in the study, as it is largely irrelevant to the
broader retail industry).
In-field research conducted by Walnut Unlimited, the global
market research agency specializing in neuroscience and
behavioral psychology and economics.

Despite all online headwinds, the power of brick-
and-mortar is undeniable. This study is yet another
important and inspirational call to all in-store
marketers, regardless of industry. What you do is
important. Every detail matters more than ever and
contributes to the overall experience and impact
on your customers. Above all other channels, the
in-store experience is where a brand can truly come
alive and engage in a way that stimulates all senses and
sets the stage for creating the most powerful, emotional
and memorable impressions for your brand.
Brick-and-mortar, when done well, will continue to evolve, grow
and flourish. The demands and preferences of consumers will drive
the in-store experience to improve, delight, amaze and showcase
the complete personality and essence of a brand. Sensorial
marketing efforts drive elevated Customer Experiences. And
elevated Customer Experiences drive success.

Sensory Marketing

  • 1. ELEVATING THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE The Impact of Sensory Marketing Global Research Report | Published January 2019
  • 2. INTRODUCTORY NOTE We all know the story. With the advent of the Internet and online shopping, consumers have access to more information and more options than ever before. They’re fully in charge and are actively making decisions across both online and offline channels. But despite the seismic growth of online shopping, brick-and-mortar still plays an important role. David Kepron summarized the role of B&M quite well in Retail (r)Evolution: “In a world in which products and services are ubiquitously available, we buy where we’re given the best experience. Physical retail is becoming the place to explore, to be romanced, to be entertained, to share moments. It’s where smart brands are making authentic connections with their consumers, simply because those compelling experiences cannot be found on a website.” Over the past several years, retailers have been looking with greater intensity at new ways for customers to interact and engage with the brand and its products on a more personal, tangible and emotional level. One area of focus that continues to garner renewed attention is sensory marketing. While traditionally viewed as a more supplemental tactic, often taking a backseat to more immediate considerations such as positioning, price and promotion, retailers are beginning to realize that a strong sensory marketing strategy is critical in the effort to resonate with customers and build more personal and emotional connections. It’s no easy effort to design an engaging sensory experience, let alone to measure and justify the impact of the subjective creative decisions and tactics designed to meet such seemingly “soft” objectives. This is especially problematic when executives and shareholders are looking for hard numbers that drive bottom line performance. With so much at stake, “we think it matters, so we’d like to do this” can be a hard sell. The pitch is much stronger when backed by research and data that supports the argument and idea. It’s especially powerful when amplified by the voice of the consumer. As the global leader in elevating the Customer Experience, Mood Media is committed to listening to that voice. That voice tells us that sensory experiences matter. 78% of consumers globally cite “an enjoyable store atmosphere” as a key factor in choosing brick-and-mortar over ecommerce, and 90% say they’re more likely to revisit a business that leverages music, visuals and scent. We’re excited to deliver the results and findings from our most recent quantitative and independent study where we asked more than 10,000 consumers around the world what they most enjoy about the in-store shopping experience. We sought to learn which sensory elements have the greatest influence on customer attitudes and behaviors when shopping. What did we take away from the study? In summary... + Sensory marketing matters + Customers are influenced by and respond to their sensory environment + Investment in a sensory marketing strategy can pay meaningful dividends We hope this study provides you with new insights and that it serves as a source of inspiration and fresh ideas. At the very least, we believe you’ll begin to look at things differently, listen more intently, feel with greater purpose and be more conscious of all that surrounds you and your customers when you consider the evolution of the in-store Customer Experience. Scott Moore – Mood Media Global SVP of Marketing and Creative Content The Impact of Sensory Marketing 2019 | moodmedia.com
  • 3. OUR GOALS The purpose of our study was to gain a better understanding of the broader impact of the sensory experience on shopper perceptions and behavior. In particular, we wanted to measure the impact of audio (music), visual (digital screens), tactile (touch/feel) and scent (smell) stimuli (NOTE: the sense of taste was not included in the study, as it is largely irrelevant to the broader retail industry). In-field research conducted by Walnut Unlimited, the global market research agency specializing in neuroscience and behavioral psychology and economics.
