    So you can focus on running the café, not managing the music.

Music makes the first impression. Then the benefits really come.

Bring customers in

A couple walking down the street hear music drifting out from your café. It strikes a chord and makes them glance inside. The music fits what they see. They decide that your coffee shop is worth a visit.

Keep them around...

As the pair walks to the counter to order, they see different types of people who somehow all seem to belong. The music adds to the welcoming, relaxing, and unique environment. They planned to grab coffee and quickly be on their way, but hearing the music makes them pause long enough to see the pastries in the display, and take it all in.

...and coming back

The man tells his partner that he likes the song. Within seconds, your barista has emailed it to him. And that’s when the couple decide to be regulars.

Your guests care about the music. So should you.
