Visual content can be a crucial factor for a customer to make a purchase decision. With so much competition in online market, especially on Amazon which is one of the most visited websites for shopping online, you have to figure out a way to make your listing stand out from others and capture attention in a fast and engaging way.
But why the quality of the images is so important?
Either it’s a shopping website or not, the average person reads only 20% of a web page, but will view every image, and in e-commerce 63% of consumers said good images are more important than product descriptions.
The quality of the content that supports your listing can truly make a difference when attracting buyers, so here’s the list of the types of content you should always have when posting a new product on Amazon:
This will be the primary product photo that will show when your listing is opened and the most important one, as it is the only picture that will appear in the search results.

– Apart from the main image, make sure to include the pictures that show the product from different angles, so buyers know exactly what they are getting
– When editing the product picture, keep it as realistic as possible, meaning don’t change the actual colors of the product even if it looks more appealing: the buyer might get upset to receive something that looks different from what he saw online
