The Ritz Carlton, for example, uses music to create a welcoming atmosphere for their guests.  </span></span></span></p> <p><strong>Many hotels now pay a lot of attention to choosing the right music for their lobby, restaurants, spas, and all other spaces in the hotel.</strong></p> <p><span><span><span>Everything is about ambiance and dayparting. One of our clients, <a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/portfolio/ritz-carlton-montreal" target="_blank">The Ritz-Carlton Montreal</a>, teamed up with our music experts at Stingray Business to create a custom playlist that communicates their brand values and personality in order to create a distinct customer experience. For example, at the Ritz-Carlton in the morning, the audience prefers to listen to soft and peaceful music (<a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/music-samples/chill-lounge-instrumental" target="_blank">see Chill Lounge Instrumental</a>). During tea-time, they prefer music of a more classical genre, whereas in the evening they want something catchier and more upbeat.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>It is very important to choose the right background music that translates your hotel’s core values and goals. By doing this, you are setting yourself apart from the competition and creating an engaging environment that transforms your clientele into loyal, repeat clients who form a strong bond with your brand through music. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Music adds value to the customer experiences. Some of the most important areas of the hotel that benefit from a curated music selection include the reception and lobby, dining or bar areas, the spa and outdoor gathering spaces since guests spend large amounts of time here. Music allows individuals to relax and feel at home affecting their mood in a positive way.  </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Using background music in your hotel is a great way to create an atmosphere that is unique to your brand.  We can help you with this.

In fact, according to HUI Research, music can increase restaurant sales by up to 9%, and can also influence how much - and how fast- your guests eat! </span></span></p> <h3><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-h2">It’s for this reason that restaurant owners are starting to pay more attention to what kind of music they play. </span></span></h3> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">Some of our clients (See <a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/portfolio/mandys-salads?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=Blog%20post_%20best%20music%20for%20your%20restaurant&amp;utm_content=Best%20music%20for%20your%20restaurant%20blog%20post"><span class="MsoHyperlink">Mandy’</span>s</a>), believe that having a custom playlist is what truly creates a unique experience. So how can you pair the right music with your restaurant to create a memorable experience? Our music experts have some tips for you. </span></span></p> <h3><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-h2">Match music to your brand identity to create the desired atmosphere.</span></span></h3> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">How do you want your guests to feel when they dine in your restaurant? This is the first question you should ask yourself when deciding what type of background music you want to play. The music should match your brand and should convey what your brand is all about. Do you want guests to feel relaxed while they dine? Try a mix of soothing classical music, like our <a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/music-samples/classical-calm?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=Blog%20post_%20best%20music%20for%20your%20restaurant&amp;utm_content=Best%20music%20for%20your%20restaurant%20blog%20post"><span class="MsoHyperlink">Classical Calm</span></a> channel<span class="size-h2">.  </span></span></span></p> <h2><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal"><span class="size-h2">Pick the right energy level for the time of day &amp; week.</span></span></span></h2> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">There is no such thing as a one-size fits all approach to music. The music you play should reflect the mood throughout the day. For example, for early mornings we recommend calm, soothing &amp; downtempo music, whereas, during the lunchtime rush, we suggest mid to up-tempo, lively music. </span></span></p> <h2><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal"><span class="size-h2">Get your staff into it. </span></span></span></h2> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">Music is important not just for your guests, but also for your staff. Music can help keep your employees engaged but can also get repetitive and predictable if you are playing the same songs on rotation. Make sure to have a collection of playlists on hand to keep things interesting. </span></span></p> <h2><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal"><span class="size-h2">Don’t forget the license.</span></span></span></h2> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">Music must be licensed to play in your restaurant. Personal streaming services are a no-no as they do not have the licenses required to play music in a public space. Having the proper licenses for your music is important to avoid legal issues and fees, and it also ensures that the artists and songwriters are properly compensated. </span></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><span class="size-normal">Choosing what music to play is as important as what ingredients you use, and you should select it with just as much care.

You’ve heard it before, and you will surely hear it again. A new era for brick and mortar has begun, and it is one that focuses on the customer’s in-store experience. Brick and mortar retail has to adapt to retain customers and stay relevant in a world where everything is seemingly moving online.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>A Global Research Report on Elevating the Customer Experience conducted by Walnut Unlimited has found that 78% of shoppers say the in-store atmosphere is key in opting to make an in-store purchase vs. online. So what contributes to the in-store atmosphere? We will discuss two key elements. </span></span></span></p> <ol><li><strong><span><span><span>Music matters</span></span></span></strong></li> </ol><p><span><span><span>Music matters, regardless of the industry. A well-thought-out music strategy that aligns with your brand identity can elevate the in-store atmosphere. This holds true for restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, grocery stores, and even banks! In fact, according to the Walnut study, music is the number one factor that contributes to lifting a customer’s mood. But beware, having the wrong type of music for your brand can be just as powerful, with 57% of shoppers saying they would disengage if a brand makes poor music choices. So be mindful when choosing the music for your establishment and consult industry experts for help. </span></span></span></p> <ol start="2"><li><strong><span><span><span>Visuals</span></span></span></strong></li> </ol><p><span><span><span>The next element that contributes to a positive in-store experience are the visuals. Gone are the days of traditional in-store posters and flyers. Retail (See <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NgjLfrNtpc" target="_blank">Sports Experts</a></span></span>), QSR’s, pharmacies and financial institutions are all leaping to digital signage, and rightly so. The study found that 58% of consumers say engaging video content has a positive impact on their shopping experience. Digital signage is an extremely flexible solution that can be used in many forms. Some examples of digital signage are interactive touch screen kiosk that clients can use to explore the store's product offering, video walls with engaging content, store-front LED screens displaying promotions that entice clients to enter your store and more. Like music, visuals matter regardless of what industry you are in. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Together, well-executed music and visual in-store strategy will lead to a positive experience for the customer. It will also keep the customer in-store longer, and certainly keep them coming back for more! </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Visit our <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/stories?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=click&amp;utm_campaign=Blog%20post_a%20new%20era%20for%20retail&amp;utm_content=A%20new%20era%20for%20retail%20blog%20post" target="_blank">portfolio</a></span></span> to learn more about how our clients have implemented music &amp; digital signage solutions in their businesses, or contact us at businesssales@stingray.com to learn more about how your business can benefit from a similar strategy. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span class="tinytext"><span><span>Sources: </span></span></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><span><span><span><span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190114005841/en/Sensory-Experiences-Drive-9-10-Shoppers-Stores">https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190114005841/en/Sensory-Experiences-Drive-9-10-Shoppers-Stores</a></span></span></span></span></span></span></p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/stingray-business" hreflang="en">Stingray Business</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/news" hreflang="en">News</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-display-in-language field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/82" hreflang="en">English</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/blog/files/2019-01/pexels-photo-264502.jpeg" width="2000" height="1500" alt="A new era for brick and mortar stores.

I do find that generally, jazz has many interesting artists compared to other genres. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><strong><span><span>For which business would this channel be best suited?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span><span><span>This channel would work in many different commercial spaces, such as in an elegant restaurant, in a retail store, or a luxury hotel such as the Ritz-Carlton. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><strong><span><span>Who is your favorite artist on this channel?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span><span><span>My favorite artist is John Coltrane. He is an artist that always reinvents himself. Throughout every era, you can see him pushing the boundaries of jazz as a language and taking risks instead of staying in his comfort zone. Also, many of his works feature my favorite drummer, Elvin Jones. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><strong><span><span>What mood does this channel create?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Personally, rather than a mood, this channel is more about the musicality of old musicians. Jazz is about older artists who use improvising to create something new on the spot, which drives me to listen to it more often. It is not about the mood; it is about the why. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span><strong><span><span>What’s the best time of the day to listen to this channel?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span><span><span>This channel would be best enjoyed while sitting down, relaxing in a lounge or a fine restaurant. The best time to listen to jazz is late afternoons and evenings, from 4-7 pm or 4-8 pm. </span></span></span></span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p>​​​​​​</p> <p><span><span><span><strong>Does Jazz Standard Instrumentals suit your business perfectly? </strong><strong><span>Visit our </span></strong><span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><strong><span><a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/node/2" target="_blank"><span>website</span></a></span></strong></span></span><strong><span> or contact us at <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><span><a href="mailto:businesssales@stingray.com"><span>businesssales@stingray.com</span></a></span></span></span> to learn more about how you can get access to our music!</span></strong></span></span></span></p> <p> </p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/stingray-business" hreflang="en">Stingray Business</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/news" hreflang="en">News</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-display-in-language field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/82" hreflang="en">English</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/83" hreflang="en">French</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/blog/files/2019-01/1200x628-experts-choice.jpg" width="1200" height="628" alt="Expert&#039;s Choice" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-listen field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Listen</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Tue, 22 Jan 2019 22:17:18 +0000 Adriana 646 at https://blog.stingray.com The Best Holiday Music for your Business https://blog.stingray.com/best-holiday-music-your-business <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The Best Holiday Music for your Business</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/olivia" lang="" about="/olivia" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Olivia</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 11/28/2018</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><h3><span><span><span>Holiday music – it’s everywhere! </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Whether you are the type to start listening to holiday music on November 1st or to avoid it at all costs, holiday music is here to stay! </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>A recent Huffington post <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/christmas-music-campaign-ads_us_565dfe72e4b079b2818c112f" target="_blank">study</a></span></span> found that only 4% of respondents want to hear Christmas music more than a month before the holidays. Nevertheless, many retail stores start way before this date. How can you avoid holiday music fatigue in your store or restaurant? Our team of music experts have tips for you.  </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>#1 Don’t start too early, and if you do, don’t go full force</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>If you run the type of establishment where holiday decorations come out on the first day of November, it might feel odd to not be playing any holiday music at all. We suggest a blended approach: start with a smaller percentage of holiday music that is mixed with your regular programming, and increase the frequency of holiday music as you get closer to Christmas. </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>#2 Holiday music is not one size fits all</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Although everyone is partial to the holiday classics, not all holiday music is created equal. What works for a restaurant might not be suitable for a retail store, so to find something that works for you we suggest that you carefully choose holiday music that suits your brand image and clientele. </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>#3 Switch it up </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Not only can an overload of holiday music drive your clients away, but the same old yuletide tracks can get tiring. Try a mix of instrumental holiday tunes (think jazzy piano versions) to set a festive mood without seeming too repetitive to clients and employees. </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>#4 Give it a break!  </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Although you want to set a festive mood for your clients, non-stop holiday music can irritate employees. To avoid this, try playing holiday music only at specific times, such as peak hours, to give your staff a break during quieter times. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Happy holidays to all our readers!

When we refer to businesses, we mean brick-and-mortar retail, hospitality, restaurants, and in some cases, grocery stores. Not only is using a personal streaming service in a business setting illegal, it is also hurting the artists, songwriters, composers and publishers involved as they are not being compensated for their work. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>What’s more, 71% of business owners are not even <em>aware</em> that they need a license to stream music (Digital Music News).</span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span>So this begs the question - how do I play music in my business?</span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span>The simple answer is that to play music legally in your bar, restaurant, gift shop, etc., each song you play must be licensed. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>SOCAN, CML, RESOUND, CSI, SOPROQ and other licenses may all be required if you want to play background music in your business. A licensing body such as SOCAN gives businesses the freedom and flexibility to use almost any music they want. Depending on what type of business you own, and how you intend to use the music in your business, you may need more than one type of license.</span></span></span></p> <h2><span><span><span>This sounds complicated. How do I go about making sure my music is licensed? </span></span></span></h2> <p><span><span><span>Rather than trying to figure that out yourself, leave it to the experts who will not only curate your music to enhance the experience in your store, but who will also ensure you're protected from any potential legal action. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>This is where Stingray Business steps in. Because we own all the national licenses required to play music legally in a commercial space, we remove the potential headache you would have to go through to ensure that all the music you are playing is licensed for commercial use. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Via our music player, our <span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/CA/mobile-app" target="_blank">mobile application</a></span></span> and <a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/web-player">w</a><span class="MsoHyperlink"><span><a href="https://business.stingray.com/en/web-player" target="_blank">eb player</a></span></span>, we offer a selection of music tailored for businesses that is fully licensed and free of explicit content.

This sort of research is especially relevant to employers who strive to create workspaces that promote productivity and teamwork.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>Kevin Kniffin, a researcher at Cornell University, conducted a study on the influence of background music on co-operation. Results from the study indicate that participants who listen to 'happy,' rhythmic music were inclined to co-operate more irrespective of factors like age, gender, and academic background, compared to those who listened to 'unhappy,' less rhythmic music. This positive boost in the participants’ willingness to co-operate was induced regardless of whether they liked the music or not. When people are in a more positive state of mind, they tend to become more agreeable and creative, while those on the opposite spectrum- in a less palatable mood- tend to focus on their individual problems rather than giving attention to solving group problems. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>Rhythm has a strong pull on people's behaviour through synchronization. When people listen to music with a steady pulse, they tend to imitate the beat by getting in sync which translates into better co-operation when making decisions. Small inexpensive adjustments to the office atmospherics, such as the music tempo, can assist in team co-operation and workflow.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>Music, as an atmospheric, has a uniquely powerful magnetism when it comes to changing sensibilities and thoughts affecting an individual’s ‘helping behaviour’. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>Helping behaviour is described as voluntary actions taken by an individual intended to assist others with reward considered or ignored. Two elements of music, in particular, create this draw on someone’s opposing emotional poles, namely the song’s feel and its lyrics. In a study, conducted by the academics North, Tarrant, and Hargreaves, two similar gyms were given specially designed playlists to test music’s effect on helping behaviour. The first was given upbeat music to induce a positive mood, and the other was given annoying music to evoke a negative one. The participants exercising to uplifting music were more willing to engage in helping behaviour after their workout compared to other groups. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>There is also a link between song lyrics and prosocial thoughts. The findings of a study by Anderson, Carnagey, and Eubanks noted the relationship between violent lyrics and the aggravation of hostile feelings in participants. Greitmeyer indicated that participants in his research, designed to test the effect music has on generosity and social awareness, donated more money to a non-profit organization after being exposed to positive, prosocial lyrical content.   </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU"><span>In summary, businesses should consider how music represents their brand and supports their customer’s shopping habits. In addition to this, music’s effect on staff should also be taken into account as its feel, rhythm, tempo and lyrical content have a significant influence on teamwork and helping behaviour.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><strong><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU">References:</span></strong></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext"><span lang="EN-AU" xml:lang="EN-AU">Suttie, J.
