    Why Digital Assets Are Essential for Storytelling

    Brand storytelling and great product experiences require digital assets. Consumer demand for engaging product content has only grown, and images, videos, and other rich media are no longer nice-to-haves — they’re essential for modern commerce.

    Over 80% of shoppers prefer seeing digital content, such as images or videos, versus seeing a product in-store, according to our 2020 consumer research report. Additionally, almost half (45%) of shoppers abandoned a purchase due to poor product content like low-quality (or not enough) images.

    Despite these statistics, many commerce solutions treat assets like just another product property, making it difficult for brands to develop a comprehensive and centralized view of their digital content.

    This model is broken: One asset could apply to many products — or none at all. A brand asset you might want on 100% of your product detail pages (PDPs) might apply to all products. Assets should be treated as first-class objects, with their own workflows, user experience (UX) treatment, search and filtering options, and other essential considerations.

    Digital Asset Experience: How to Quickly Bring Product Experiences to Life

      • Standardize your asset metadata tagging and enrichment process;
      • Automate repetitive tasks with new asset edit bots;
      • Ensure all assets are tagged, findable, and up-to-date; and
      • Archive expired assets based on usage rights automatically.
