The power of sound has a huge influence on how you can get people to buy your product. Whether you’re marketing online, or on television in a commercial, using sound can have the power to encourage customers to listen to what you have to say and make a buy.

I’m sure there’s more of psychology behind it, but I’ll leave that to the professionals.
