When marketing Amazon bundles of, say, hot chocolate (as in this week’s example), remember that our eyes like variety.
In a recent split test, 50 Amazon Prime members were asked to consider two product images for a three-pack of Maltesers hot chocolate pods. Option A shows three boxes in a row, while Option B shows the three boxes in a pyramid.
Since Amazon shoppers can’t hold your product in their hands, they rely on photos to experience an item and decide whether to buy it. That’s why high-quality Amazon product photography is essential.
Amazon product pictures need to convey the basics — size, shape, texture, what’s included — but they also need to create positive feelings in your audience. When shoppers look through your photos, are they attracted to the product? Do they trust the quality of your brand? Do they feel the drive to buy?
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about how to take product pictures for Amazon.
“Sex sells” might be cliche, but the reason the phrase has stuck around this long is that it’s true. And it’s a good thing to keep in mind when selecting e-commerce product images.
In a recent PickFu poll, an online seller ran a split test asking respondents to choose between two featured images for an exercise belt.
Option A depicts a model wearing the belt with an inset showing the back view of the product. Option B shows a model wearing the belt, but with a different pose. An inset advertises that a wrist wrap is included. In Option A, the brand name on the belt is “posture.” In Option B, it is “GO4FIT.”
When designing the main image for a product that consists of multiple pieces, it’s critical to think about how the component parts are arranged.
In a recent PickFu poll, one Amazon seller split tested two main product images for a Treasure Box toy set. The seller received responses from 50 members of the general population in 26 minutes.
In Option A, the toys form a clump in front of the box, playing off the visual we associate with a treasure chest: a pile of gold, silver, and jewels straight out of a tale of swashbuckling pirates on the high seas.
Option B shows the toys neatly organized in front of the box, with like items displayed together.
If you’re selling a product that shoppers may be unfamiliar with, the main product image is an opportunity to convey how it’s used. That’s why testing product photos is essential to help your listing stand out.
In a recent PickFu poll, an e-commerce seller asked a panel of 50 women to choose between two product images for a set of resistance bands.
Both choices showed an image of the bands with a storage bag, but Option B featured a photo of a ballerina using a band to stretch her leg, while Option A showed only the ballerina’s leg.
