Ditch Your Product Description: There's a New Way

Getting site visitors to click "add to cart" on your product page

If you're like every other growing ecommerce business out there, you're probably trying to get across a few pieces of important information on your site to convince your hard-earned traffic to convert as quickly as possible.

Like your free shipping offer, how your products were made with the best ingredients, your favorite customer testimonial, or even your mission for starting your company- like creating a cleaner earth.

You have a few options on where to share this info today on your product page:

1. Your announcement bar

2. Your product description

3. Your review section at the bottom of the page

The problem is that the average site visitor attention span is 8 seconds and shoppers have become completely desensitized to all of that real estate. They rarely even look at it nowadays, let alone consume what it is you're trying to tell them.

The second win is that it's literally impossible to ignore. Since this is new real estate, Because banners capture consumer intrigue. Especially if you play around with eye-catching colors, icons, and fonts that fit naturally into your brand.

So you can add different banners on every page, all 100% customized to your message and brand look. Did I mention without a developer? Yeah pretty cool.

But even with all that capability, a lot of people get hung up on what message to share and where.

So here's our new blog covering "5 ideas to convert site visitors on your product page."
