Enhanced content, which is also known as A+ content on Amazon and rich media on Walmart, offers shoppers an interactive and engaging online experience. It also gives brands better control over how their brand stories are shared.
Some examples of enhanced content are:
In a world of rapidly changing retailer requirements, enhanced content acts as a protected microcosm where brand stories can thrive. Brands using enhanced content see better results with enhanced content present on 41.4% of the top 10% products on Amazon, and 32.2% of the top 10% products on Walmart.
Images set real-world expectations
For shoppers, seeing is truly believing. While creating images for an entire product catalog requires time, coordination, and money, winners on the digital shelf now average around six images per product page.
Some examples of enhanced images are:
- Nutritional information
- Approximate product size
- Multiple product angles
- Brand history and lifestyle shoots
