and images, might be finding that people are visiting but not necessarily buying from you.

What can you do to encourage people to purchase?

Let’s look at how to use product images and video to encourage people to buy from you and to get more sales from your online shop.

Specifically how can you use product images to get more online sales? How can you encourage someone to buy through your images that you use?

How people buy

We know that you need text for your descriptions. It’s something that people use, isn’t it? On their, products, those keywords that you can use, which are great for search engine optimisation or SEO.

5 tips to use product images to get more online sales

I’ve got five tips of things you can do to your images to make it easy for people to make a decision.

Put your images on a plain background

Images on a white or plain background which show people round the product from different angles with no clutter, no background make it really easy for customers to have a flick through and see whether that product is what they’re after.

Use lifestyle shots

Create a lifestyle shot which shows your customer how they are going to use the product. Allow them to picture themselves using it or placing it in their home.

Display dimensions

The third thing I would suggest is have images with dimensions displayed because your customer can then figure out whether that product is the size they you want it to be. Compare it to other items which they know the size of so they can picture it rather than having to get the tape measure out.

Answer your customers’ questions

Add your key points about your products on to your images. What you want to be doing here is answering any questions people might have about your product. So if you answer those questions in your images, customers don’t have to scroll through the text and maybe not not bother buying because they can’t find the answer to the questions.

When you’re planning your, product images and product descriptions think about they questions people will have about your products. And answer them.

Use video

People want to consume video, and in ecommerce it helps them to make decisions. A vidoe gives customers an overview of what your product is like. If you have a product that people have to know how to use it, put a how to use it video on your website.
