What can you do?

  • To enhance¬†your mobile experience, everything must be clear and easy to understand.
  • Make sure you showcase your product with beautiful infographics, videos, and product photos that will explain the use, composition, and any other features that might help in the user decision-making process.

Media content only adds value to your websites or listings and shows that you care about quality when it comes to creating and selling products. Let’s also remember that videos will tell your story and they will also answer any questions in a straightforward way that will save your potential customers time and research.

Here’s an example of how one of our clients got a 7.36 Return on Advertising Spend thanks to the usage of a high-quality video

What can you do?

  • Invest in high-quality video production.
  • Get advice from experts about what works.
  • Hire professionals who will treat your products as their own.

3. Visual Commerce

Visual Commerce doesn’t just mean good, clear images, but also communicative, beautiful, organic images throughout your entire store that invite users to engage with your brand.

The best way to ensure your shoppers will fall in love with what you’re selling isn’t just putting an image out there, but something that feels real. We love working with lifestyle images because even if they include a model or not, it puts the product in a better context than a simple product image.

What can you do?

Just as the brand NOXU reached out to us to create imagery that showcases their Ergonomic Office Chair in a beautiful way all through their Amazon Storefront, you should consider investing in content that showcases your product in a real-life scenario and has humans interacting with it.

4. Connection

There’s one thing we need to remember always: we are not just shoppers, clients, sellers, creators, etc. We’re humans, and there has never been a more important time to be and feel connected to others, even if it’s someone on the other side of the computer.

While selling online, we need to make sure our potential clients feel like they are purchasing goods or services that will actually work, and sometimes a short conversation will give them that little push they need to make a decision.

What can you do?

  • Experiment with new platforms or formats! From how-to videos to tours around the store, even customer experience stories can help them feel safe and confident in their decisions.
  • Make sure your customer service agents are ready to sell and up-sell while giving your clients a peaceful, professional (and even fun) experience that will have them recommending you to all of their friends.
