Marketers are generally aware that the nature of a product influences consumer behaviour towards it. Consumers are unlikely to purchase a product that is poorly packed or branded.
Many companies pay little attention to product packaging and branding. Most products are poorly packaged, resulting in low sales volumes that may not even reach the break-even point for the manufacturing corporations. Consequently, losses may ensue.
Furthermore, a market's brand names for a product must be able to outperform those of competitors providing the same product. However, marketers do not spend much time making smart branding decisions. As a result of this, the product is not effectively communicated to the target market, resulting in low sales.
Could it be that such businesses or marketers lack the necessary money to invest in effective product packaging?
