Crucial Aspects of On-Site Merchandising

  • Product Photos – Having multiple clear, organized, and well-lit photos of your product can do wonders in terms of lending credibility to your website and to your operation, as well as provide more information about the product itself.
  • Genuine Customer Experiences – It’s easiest to earn a customer’s trust by highlighting the real-life thoughts and experiences of other satisfied customers with your product.
  • User-Generated Content (UGC) – such as user-submitted reviews, photos, and videos, is the most authentic, visually-appealing way to allow prospective customers to directly see other customers’ experiences with your products and your store.
  • Aesthetic Design – Your website’s visual design should aim to attract a user’s gaze, make them feel that this is perhaps a store they would enjoy looking into and entice them in to browse your offerings, as well as make them feel completely comfortable and confident in purchasing your products.
  • Mobile Responsiveness – It’s incredibly important that your eCommerce merchandising operation be mobile-responsive, as a tremendous amount of online shoppers today do so exclusively on their mobile devices.
