Talking about sound and music can be tricky and some brands have yet to realize the full potential of a good Audio Branding strategy. If you offer branding consultancy, are part of an ad agency or want to understand how audio can help your brand, this quick guide is for you!
Step 1: identify where audio fits in their strategy
Good video means good audio.

Experts in sound design and acoustics can help a brand make sure its product inspires quality, durability, safety etc.
Perfect phone customer service.
The « on hold » telephone music can greatly improve your client’s customer satisfaction and make sure the brand’s message is heard loud and clear.
Step 2: show them the numbers
The right soundtrack for the right impact.
Oxford University Researcher Charles Spencer proved that congruent sound and video enhance the emotional impact of visual communication by 1207%.
Music boosts memory.
According to a study by Neuro-Insight, when a soundtrack and a video are closely linked, the content delivered 14% higher memory encoding at end branding than more passive soundtracks.
