If a product is not safe and packed properly it would damage the product and the image of the company in customers minds. Therefore, the packing should be of a material which saves the product from the damage of environmental elements (like mold, dust, insects, and temperature changes) warehousing and shipping roughness.

Eco-packaging and Green-packaging are examples of such kind of efficient packaging.
Picture Manual:
The world has become a global village and many items have transported to various parts of the worlds. Depending upon the cultural differences and language barriers a product packaging should have a guide or manual which have illustrations and pictures in it for guidance. Instead of using a specific language only you can also use illustration manual to guide customers properly about your product. No matter where your package will deliver it will help customers of all around the world to understand properly about the product. It is more convenient and useful method yet ignored by many organizations.

Experience of Unboxing:
Think of yourself as a customer who buys your product for the first time and unboxing the product, is it easy for him to open the box? If the answer is yes then you are doing good work in the packaging field and in making your customer happy. If the answer to that question is no, then you have to work on it. Therefore, the unboxing experience should always be pleasurable and easy to handle. The customer should not get frustrated while opening a packaging otherwise it will give a bad impression about the company and the product instantly.

Retailer Requirements:
Your packaging design must fulfill the requirements of a retailer. It means that how a retailer wants to display your product in a store. Is it going to display on hanging racks? Or it will place on the shelves among other brand products? Or how much area will it cover on a specific shelf? Similarly, if your product will not fulfill the requirements of a retailer than the future of your product will be in danger. The packaging design of your product must be easy to handle for the retailer and it should also attract customers attention in the presence of other brand products.
Packaging must be Beautiful:
Study the demographics of your customers carefully and design your product packaging accordingly. The selection of colors and pattern must be very elegant and wise so it can attract more attention. Because our brain reacted towards colors and patterns differently so the overall look of packaging must be beautiful and elegant. Because it is human nature that it attracts towards beautiful patterns more easily than towards dull patterns. So, the factor of beauty is also a part of the effective packaging of your products.

A Great Marketing Tool:
An efficient packaging is an excellent marketing tool. A message can put on product packaging to attract the customers and make their purchase decision faster. The messages like now get 40% extra or save up to $50. will work as a marketing tool to increase sales.
