5 ways to save time managing your business music

How come there never seems enough time in the day?

At work you’ve perfected the art of extinguishing spotfires on-the-go, while juggling demands from clients, staff and management. You know that your background music can boost business and create a competitive customer experience … but there’s never a spare moment to think about it! 

That’s why we’re sharing 5 ways to get the most out of your music – and save time, money (and stress!).

1. Delegate your music curation

Did you know that the average daily business playlist contains 300 tracks? That’s over 2100 songs per week!

If just the thought of sourcing, checking and compiling those songs puts terror in your heart, consider delegating. As they say, deciding what to do is just as important as deciding what to not do. 

Is there someone you know who could bring more passion, time and experience to the project? Perhaps there’s a music-loving employee on team who’d love to play company DJ. Or, maybe it’s worth investigating an affordable service to help you out. 

Rossopomodoro CEO, Daniele di Martino, spent over 20 hours every month curating the restaurant’s music before Ambie (which he explains in this video). How much time could you free up through delegating curation?

2. Watch out for complex installations 

Many music providers still work with bulky  tech that requires technical assistance to set up – with sneaky fees attached. 

Before committing to a solution, make sure you understand all the details around delivery, setup, network and audio requirements, maintenance and – significantly – ongoing care. 

For comparison, the Ambie player uses plug-and-play simplicity and connects to your existing sound system and network. Setup takes a few minutes. 

Your music solution should be exactly that – a solution! If it’s looking like a logistical nightmare, consider other options.

3. Take advantage of music scheduling  

Your business attracts different customers, with different expectations throughout the day – and your music should mirror these trading patterns.

It’s time consuming and a distraction to make music changes on-the-go. That’s why you should get on the scheduling band wagon. 

At Ambie, we build smart schedules for our clients. This just means that their bespoke playlists start and  finish at set times through the day and week, maximising the customer experience. 

A schedule may not sound like the sexy solution you were after, but they’re great at freeing up your time to focus on more important things.

4. Don’t overlook customer care  

Support is one of those things you don’t value …. until you desperately need it.

No matter which music solution you’re using, ensure you have the customer care number and email at the ready. And if there’s a live chat option? Even better.

And a great support team should go beyond helping you set up your music solution and help you get the most out of it too. Don’t be afraid to ask about new features, for feedback, or for tips on how to get the most out of your service.

5. Keep your employees in mind

A good music solution shouldn’t just free up your time – but your employee’s time too.

Numerous studies have shown how music can boost employee mood, morale and productivity levels. In fact, a MusicWorks and Mindlab study found that 81% of staff performed better when listening to music.

So don’t forget about your employees when managing your company music. When staff are satisfied they’re more likely to deliver a better service, which means happier customers in the long run.
