Do You Listen to Music at Your Home Business?
As Jim and I browsed in a shop in Sedona, AZ, Native American flute music played in the background. Actually, the music first caught our attention while still outside. We heard it wafting through the air as we approached the shop, and the captivating music lured us inside. This was our introduction to the Native American flute music, and we were enthralled. The result….we ended up buying a CD for ourselves and one to take home for our granddaughter.
Music while you work or while your customers shop often creates a pleasing, uplifting atmosphere. If you do sell music CDs, have them playing softly in the background. Your customers may be tempted to purchase, as we were.
However, do you listen to music for relaxation, to help you concentrate, drown out distracting sounds, or simply because you enjoy it?
Yvonne Russell got me thinking on this topic…music while you work, when I read her post, Whistle While You Write…7 Songs Meme, at Grow Your Writing Business blog. Although Yvonne didn’t tag anyone for the meme, she invited readers to share their thoughts on music while working.
I prefer quiet music, relaxing music, yet something with an upbeat tempo. There are some nostalgic songs from my youth that appeal, like The Twelfth of Never, which I listened to at the dentist’s while getting my teeth cleaned the other day. This resulted in a pleasant conversation about music with the dental hygenist (as much as I could talk while she worked).
Think about it…
*What do customers like to have in the background when they stop in your home shop?
*If you work mainly online, what do you like to listen to while you work?
*What do you like playing while you make products for sale?
*Or do you like complete quiet?Tags:grow+your+writing+business home+biz Home+biz+notes Home+business music Native+American+flute+Music Sedona+AZ The+Twelfth+of+Never Yvonne+Russell
