WHY E-COMMERCE WEBSITES NEED UNIQUE PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS
“E-commerce websites thrive on quality product descriptions. In fact, e-commerce conversion rates have seen an increase of 30% more (sometimes 100%) when the content description quality has been bettered. So, not only is the traffic leading to sales, the amount of traffic coming in every day also steadily increasing- all because unique copy is written for each product. It is highly inadvisable to rely on images to sell products, use the manufacturer’s product description or use inadequate copy.”
