Make Your Store Visually Engaging

First impressions of your website determine whether shoppers explore and buy your products. That’s why it is important to take them on a visual journey as soon as they land on your website starting from the homepage through product pages until they arrive at the shopping cart.

A well thought out visual merchandising strategy willmake it easy for customers to stay longer on the page, discover and explore your products. It increases conversion and sales.

Some way you can make your online store visually engaging include:

Use high quality images:images are the first thing the eye gravitates towards. Taking high-quality photos that reveal details of your product from many angles will help shoppers to scrutinize and familiarize themselves with products.

  • Make use of video: videos can be more than a tool for showing customers how the product looks. Make videos a source of useful content that brings value to the customers. You can use video to demonstrate how to use a certain product.
  • Color play: Color take shoppers on an emotional journey that create an emotional connection with your merchandise. Some colors are assuring. They bring a sense of calm or excitement that make shoppers want to spend more time on your website.
  • Layout and product grouping:high-quality photographs and videos alone are not enough.
