With ecommerce sales at an all-time high, shoppers are buying online more than ever before. Even when the final purchase is made in-store, many shoppers prefer to research products online before they buy. This upward eCommerce trend is creating an even greater need for brands to consistently and accurately portray their products wherever they are sold online.
Ensuring that accurate and compelling product information is displayed on ecommerce sites’ product pages is a necessity for creating a positive brand experience. When digital shoppers were interviewed, 53% of respondents said that having ample information about products in the form of specs, images, videos, etc., is what defines a positive experience with digital brands/retailers (Avionos, 2019). And 61% of global online shoppers said they would be more likely to shop with a brand if the brand provided important product content in a self-service way (Forrester, 2019).
Consumers expect to conduct research on an ecommerce product page and see compelling, informational, and interactive product content that helps them make informed decisions about the product before they buy.
Product detail pages are critical in making or breaking a sale. Arguably, your images are the single most important source of information as many customers will make a buying decision based on product imagery alone. Brands and retailers need to mimic the in-store experience as best they can online by displaying high-resolution, detailed product imagery that enables shoppers to truly experience the product and feel confident in clicking the buy button.
The result of not accurately representing your products in a digital environment is damage to your brand and lost sales. How many times have you purchased an item that says ‘No Image’ or ‘Missing Image?’ I bet never. In fact, in a Digital Commerce 360 survey of online shoppers, “45% of shoppers experienced ‘not enough images to see what the product looks like’ when shopping on retail websites in the past 6 months.”
“From an eCommerce perspective, merchandise with 360 photos has a positive impact on the business with consistently higher revenue and conversion rate performance than merchandise without 360 photos.”– Monica Dooley, Senior Producer, True Value
“These are very high-tech products. Someone who uses our headset is going to use it every day, and touch these buttons, and use this microphone. The more detail we can provide in our photography and the way we present our products in marketing materials, the better.“– Jackson Neff, Global Marketing for Accessories and Consumer Products at Motorola Solutions
In addition to high-quality still images, providing a 360-degree spin experience on a product page has proven to give brands an edge in ecommerce, increasing online conversions by as much as 47%.

Once your compelling, accurate digital content is created, it needs to be delivered to the right ecommerce product pages at the right time. That is where content syndication makes a difference. With content syndication, brands create and package their high-impact digital marketing assets, deliver them one time to a content syndication provider, and the provider then seamlessly disseminates those assets directly to the brands’ ecommerce partners’ product pages. This service significantly increases efficiency and ensures brand consistency across partner sites.
Working with one company that provides multiple services will increase efficiency and reduce cost. 1WorldSync now provides full-service product image capture and rich content syndication across multiple industries and global markets. With its holistic approach, 1WorldSync offers brands a multi-point product data and content solution that empowers them to streamline workflows, ensure brand consistency, and ultimately increase sales.
