Scent marketing is known to drive sales and create a brand identity for businesses across many industries. Using scent marketing techniques within more conservative settings, such as financial institutions can be a beneficial way to develop branding, enhance the banking experience and improve client communication.
Why is it a good idea to scent a bank?
Those working in a bank are likely to find themselves surrounded by an anxious and hurried energy. This negative energy can create an atmosphere for customers that is not very pleasing, hindering their experience and causing them to be reluctant to return.
By adding a specialized scent throughout, banks can help to create a relaxing and friendly experience. This helps to relax both busy customers and bankers, making the experience less stressful and more appealing.
By introducing versatile scenting systems, it will create a powerful yet subtle fragrance that will help the banks brand create emotional connections with customers. Employing a signature scent to a financial business sets the tone of relaxation, comfort and peace of mind which is essential when managing money.
This improved customer experience is an influential way of retaining customers and staff, creating employee and customer satisfaction within branches.
The benefits of scenting a bank for a positive banking experience
Customer satisfaction – Scent marketing can be used to reduce the perceived amount of time a customer is waiting in-line or waiting for service. The relaxing property of scenting allows customers to feel comfortable and calm, rather than restless and unhappy.
Brand recognition – By using scent marketing in financial businesses and banks it can highlight brand identity and define the company. Scent and memories are closely linked, so by using a specialized scent it can encourage familiarity with that specific business.
Customer retention – an enhanced and positive experience created by scenting systems can help to increase customer retention and improve the performance of the business.
Adaptability – Banks and financial institutions have the opportunity to adapt their fragrances to suit their brand message, whether it is comforting, relaxing or energizing.
