Which One Won? Amazon product images

Top Amazon sellers understand that product visuals — from videos to photography to A+ content — must showcase how fantastic their products are. The only problem?

So, how do you choose the image that’s going to immediately earn the attention and trust of your target customer? It’s simple: ask them.

In this PickFu poll, a seller asks 50 Amazon Prime members which product image they prefer.

Lately, self-help books with swear words have become their own genre. Some people love a good expletive. Others find them vulgar and unfit for genteel society.

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?”
