Music can affect our purchasing habits:

  • Classical music increases the sensation of quality
    = tea rooms / wine bars / spas
  • Slow tempo music = Increases store visit durations and the money spent = supermarkets, department stores
  • Quick tempo music = encourages consumers to eat and leave quickly = fast food

Researchers say that music affects us psychologically by affecting our heartbeats and brain waves It also triggers the release of dopamine that acts on our mood.
