Product Page Optimization Strategies That Actually Work

Did you know that nearly 70% of consumers abandon product pages because of lack of product content? This is supported by another Study conducted by the National Retail Federal which sites that shoppers find online research of features and reviews to be the most frustrating stage of online shopping.

When it comes to online retail, brands face additional challenges. For one, there are limitations on what kind of content is accepted in content syndication. More pressing than that though, is the fact that the retailer controls the product page layout, which makes it challenging to highlight unique value propositions.

To understand how brands can combat these challenges, we sat down with the GM at SellPoints, Sean Simon and discussed product page optimization strategies that brands can enable to increase shopper engagement and inspire a purchase. 

Our webinar covered the following topics:

1 | Consumer Shopping Behaviors

We discuss how customer expectations have evolved when making purchase decisions online.

2 | The Next Stage of eCommerce Optimization

Solutions that brands are using to address consumer frustrations.

3 | Product Page Optimization Best Practices

We discussed product page optimization strategies including:

  • What kind of images are useful to include
  • When to use 360° views
  • The optimal length for product videos
  • How to build shopper confidence through reviews

4 | Proving it with Incremental Lift
