Comments Off on Two Issues to Consider When Shopping for Scent Marketing Equipment


There are many ways to market more effectively, some of which are better known than others. One interesting approach that has recently been gaining a lot momentum involves the use of vaporized scents to create more appealing and productive shopping experiences. Equipment designed for scent marketing is easy to incorporate into almost any retail space or other business where in-person purchasing decisions are likely to be made. Understanding the most important issues will make it easy to choose an appropriate system.

A Simple Type of Device That Often Produces Impressive Results

A pleasant scent can be enough to encourage a shopper to stick around in a store, browse more, and even make additional purchases. Couple this with the fact that certain scents tend to influence the mind in predictable, powerful ways, and the potential usefulness of this marketing approach should be clear.

There are now a fair number of devices on the market that are designed to add scents to commercial spaces. Choosing a system with the most appropriate mix of features and specifications will make success even more likely. Some of the issues and capabilities that most often merit consideration include:

  • Capacity. A system designed to scent a store or other facility will always have limits regarding how much space it can cover. Fortunately, most manufacturers now clearly classify and mark their products with regard to their scenting capacity. Choosing a system that has a bit of spare capacity relative to the size of the store it is to be installed in will generally be wise.
  • Timers. Having to attend too much to a piece of scenting equipment will effectively increase the cost of its service. There are now systems, however, which can be set up and configured and then left alone for months at a time. In most cases, a key feature with regard to enabling this will be a timer that allows the device to come on and shut off automatically when the store in question opens and closes.

A Great Investment for Many Store Owners and Operators

Simple issues like these tend to impact the usefulness and cost effectiveness of particular scenting systems quite significantly. Fortunately, such details should be easy enough to assess in light of any particular situation.
