Category Breakdown: Top Brands Using Enhanced Content

Salsify | June 30, 2020

Enhanced content, also known as rich media on Walmart, helps brands stand out on the digital shelf. Comparatively few brands actually deploy enhanced content, and those that do usually don’t cover much of their product catalog. This holds true regardless of the product category.

Brands that use enhanced content not only present product pages that stand out to consumers, but they can also see a 10% average lift in sales, according to Salsify’s internal data. Additionally, 35% of the top 10% of products on Walmart use rich media — versus the bottom 10% of products, which only use it 6% of the time.
