4. Don't end up playing chart music

It is a common misconception that playing popular music is the best option for your brand, because of its widespread appeal. In actual fact, playing music that reflects your brand values makes a big difference in sales compared with just playing the most popular songs.

5. Curated music aka licensed music

Personal music services do not give businesses the right to stream music in public spaces. Even so, 83% of small business owners believe that it does and continue to stream music illegally. This means the creators are not fairly compensated for their work. Let’s get the artists we love to play, paid. Use curated music services like Altaura.

Music has become another data touchpoint for your brand. Music streaming solutions make it possible to schedule music in an unlimited number of locations for brands. Therefore, it is now possible to see precisely how the choice of music, moved sales, second by second.

This technology revolutionises the way we can measure music’s impact. This helps brands understand what music to play and when.

7. Music matters

Music is a passion point for an exceedingly large number of people. Making it a powerful way of connecting with those around us. It can trigger memories of messages, experiences, and other moments. There is scientific evidence to demonstrate how music and recall are intrinsically linked.

Let the way your spaces sound, be triggers for many memorable moments your customers can enjoy.
