    Digital shelf winners use enhanced content

    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

    Product ratings and reviews build trust

    Product pages with at least one review have seen a 354% increase in conversion.4 Top-performing products have as much as 50 times more reviews as the lowest-performing products in their category and price tier.

    It's common knowledge: Shoppers rely on product ratings and reviews to build trust during the decision-making process.

    User-generated visual content is on the rise across all product categories, and grocery tops this list with a 184% year-over-year increase in images submitted with user reviews. Reviews are not going away, and shoppers are increasingly creating and expecting this user-generated content.
