To Sell More Categories and Hunt New Customers -
Step 2 - Recommendations on Images
Our E-Com can display several images for each product in the catalogue. While only main images are required for all PARENT_Article_Number and all CHILD_Article_Number (every size in every color and weight).
Why so Important? Customers can make more informed purchasing decisions if we upload several high-resolution product images, and they will surf in the loop we have decided and boarded for them to stay in and in future by using AI tool we can also manipulate them easier by analyzing their actions on the page (which part scared longer, which parts they clicked several times, how long they spent on looking at pics, watch video, etc…) and create rules to sell them more categories by using videos and images. Moreover, we will get higher Google Rank because of the longer time they spend on the product page and click CHILD Products in the planned loop but clicking more in the loop.
Keep in Mind for Google Ranking : Increasing Organic Clicks, Time on Site and Sales Velocity are the most effective way to get rank on Google.
DO NOT FORGET all child products must have same article number, please check the examples below.
PARENT_ARTICLE_MAIN_Image: Only one main image is used per parent listing. We must supply a parent main image.
CHILD_ARTICLE_MAIN_Image: Each Child ARTICLE (corresponding to one SKU) must have a MAIN image that shows only that distinct colorway, and only one view on that item. We must supply a child main image for every color and size option that we sell.
The main image is extremely important as it is shown on the GOOGLE result search page.
Alternative Images: These shows different views of the product to help clarify the use of the product, details on how user-friendly the product is, material, function, fit, sustainability, wow affect if there is. We can supply up to eight alternative images for each PARENT or CHILD SKU.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: The second image is very important as it is shown on the GOOGLE SEACRH PAGE when a customer places the mouse over the product. So it should show function rather than the product itself. See the examples below.
REQUIRED BY GOOGLE:
1 Main Image + Alternatives
Swatches: These may be used for close-up views pf patterns or material to show our high quality. We can supply one Swatch_IMAGE per child SKU. Swathes display on the product detail page next to the name of the color or size or weight.
With no swatches image, the child main image will be used displayed instead, which will not show our quality because of pixel issue. Better to use Swatches to build CUSTOMER TRUST and LOYALTY.
