When you decide to take the leap to eCommerce to sell your products online, you shouldn’t worry only about creating the online store itself (choosing the platform, development, design, etc.). You should also consider the contents that will be part of your store.
Preparing the information and data, the images and texts that will describe your products, should take up a large part of your efforts. You should spend whatever time is necessary on them, as they can be crucial when it comes to making sales, which is your ultimate goal.
Very often, we come across mistakes such as:
- Low-quality images or pictures which don’t show the picture well.
- Products with no descriptions or non-descript texts which don’t actually convey anything.
- Duplicate contents, cut-and-paste texts from the manufacturer’s website, etc .
Here are some tips to create good contents for your online store:
- Include all the information you have.
- Present information in a clear, well-structured way.
- Try to make the product name appear more than once, though always naturally, never forcing it. This will help search engine positioning.
