Some authors have a love-hate relationship with book descriptions — especially those that appear on jacket covers. On the one hand, what if they give too much away? But on the other, what if they don’t provide enough information to tantalize readers? How does an author find the perfect balance?
One PickFu user made this burden easier on herself by testing her two book descriptions in a recent PickFu poll. Since the book is aimed for a female audience, she asked an audience of 50 women, “Which book description is more appealing?”
There’s nothing like walking through the Romance section of your local bookstore. Bared abs and breathy-looking women abound. If you’re brave enough to pluck a book from the shelf, you spend the entire time at the cashier’s desk hoping no one judges your reading choices.
But what if nudity isn’t the only thing that can sell a romance novel? One publisher tested this question in a recent PickFu poll. She posted two romance book cover ideas and asked an all-female audience, “Which book cover do you like better?”
Option A shows a fully dressed man in a suit. A stubbled chin turns to the side; the top buttons of his shirt are open.
In Option B, we get standard Romance-cover fare: a full set of ripply abs and pecs.
At PickFu, we’re always talking about the importance of Amazon product photos. A consistent tip we’ve observed over the years: shoppers want to see every component that’s included with the purchase. Your product infographic design can be an attractive visual way to convey this information.
In this PickFu poll, a seller asked 50 Amazon Prime members which image they’d be most likely to click on. Each product infographic design showed six magnetic spice containers, a chalk pen, and labels, but only one option (Option B) showed the product packaging.
When pet owners pick out accessories for their furry friends, they tend to be picky. It makes sense; a dog or cat takes up a lot of space in your home and life, and you want their bed, toys, and dishes to look decent among the general décor. This also creates an opportunity for online sellers. The most effective way to know what the best cat products to sell are is to ask cat owners.
How do you find the right way to market and present your product for sale? What is the most important value proposition you can offer customers? Writing headlines for the web is one of the most difficult exercises an online business undertakes — but also one of the most essential.
Customers react to words and phrases in ways you might not expect. That’s why it’s critical to do market research, just like in this PickFu poll.
An online telemedicine pharmacy retailer wants to see which headline resonates with 50 women. Each woman in the respondent pool has children, is between the ages of 35 and 74, and self-identifies as a wine drinker.
Option A reads, “Hair skin and eyelash solutions without going to a doctor’s office.
Option B reads, “Hair skin and eylash [sic] solutions online and delivered to your door.”
The smallest change can make a huge difference to your conversion rates: the font in your logo, the brand colors you choose, even the arrangement of words in your Amazon product description. Product packaging is an essential brand asset, and perhaps even more important for food products. After all, we eat with our eyes first.
In this recent PickFu poll, an online seller puts their food product packaging design to the test with 50 Amazon Prime members who are avid home cooks.
What’s one of the first things moms-to-be add to their Amazon baby registries? Nursing covers. They’re irresistibly stretchy, and they aren’t just for breastfeeding. Moms also use them as shopping cart supports, car seat covers, and stroller shades.
Because of this, options abound. If you’re starting a business selling baby products, then making your brand stand out from the crowd can be challenging.
In a recent poll, one PickFu user tested three main product images of their nursing cover. They targeted females and Amazon Prime Members in order to achieve the most relevant results.
