Within highly saturated markets like off-the-shelf home improvement, brand manufacturers that use in-depth, immersive, below-the-fold content, also called enhanced content and rich media, have a unique advantage.
When enhanced content is present on a product detail page (PDP), consumers are more likely to purchase.
These shoppers can range from professionals within the building and construction trade to at-home DIY customers looking to discover a new hobby or complete home projects. These shoppers all share a common demand: They want engaging PDP experiences.
Enhanced content helps brands optimize their PDPs across their entire product catalog, leveraging videos, image galleries, comparison charts, downloadable instruction guides, and more, to give customers the information they want.
Here are three winning home improvement brands with outstanding PDP examples that instruct, guide, and help consumers feel more confident in their abilities and purchases — which allows these brands to build brand loyalty and drive sales.
As a sub-brand of the consumer craftsman tape brand, FrogTape maximizes its Walmart exposure by enlisting enhanced content to do major marketing heavy lifting.
Knowing many DIYers are trying a home improvement project for the first time — or the first time in a while — aid their shopping and confidence with instructional videos, image galleries, and step-by-step tips.
FrogTape's enhanced content presents consumers with four "tips to achieve the sharpest paint Lines," adding additional information about how to best use the product to get the best results, making what may seem complicated, easy. The content is evergreen, so consumers can revisit the page after purchase if they need an instructional refresher.

Consumers likely don’t know what other products you manufacture. Embrace a cross-sell opportunity and use enhanced content to showcase the breadth of your product assortment.
For the average consumer, the nuances between technical home improvement products can be easily overlooked. Within moments, consumers can develop a better understanding of multiple products in your product catalog by referencing a comparison chart.
Using images and a set of specific specifications like size, length, range, and accuracy, you can emphasize these important differentiators, ease your consumer shopping journey, and cross-sell at the same time.
As a manufacturer focused on providing crafters and DIYers with easy-to-handle, user-centric saws, rotary, and oscillating tools, Dremel shines with how-to content focused on making the consumer feel at ease while crafting and working on their to-do lists.
Help consumers envision how the product will enrich their lives and show the breadth of a product’s versatility using an image gallery with descriptive, idea-filled copy. Dremel visually shows how its tools can help in the kitchen, bathroom, grill, patio, and other projects around the house.
Its enhanced content also depicts the many functions its tools can perform — like grinding, sharpening, sanding, and cutting. This information is especially helpful for selling to DIYers using the tool for the first time.

When shoppers can familiarize themselves with a product before they have it in hand or reference the instruction manual via a keyword search — and not by digging through their files — a product experience has made their lives easier.
Dremel includes PDFs of specs, tool-to-tool compatibility charts, and instruction manuals for consumers to view on-screen or download to their device.
A consumer should understand precisely what to expect before they even open a product’s packaging. This information helps avoid returns and frustration over unexpectedly not having everything in hand to begin a home-improvement project.
Using visuals and copy, outline every part and piece within the enhanced content so consumers can decide if they want to stock up on extra attachments or replacement pieces.
Like its standalone brand website, the Tekton shop on Amazon is full of background information on the hand tool company and lined with categorized drop-down menus to ease product discovery.
It’s one thing to say a screwdriver is 7.8 inches long. It’s another to show the actual dimensions via illustration. When consumers understand and visualize size and scale, they are better equipped with correct information to persuade their purchase and reduce returns.

Enhanced content image galleries can take multiple forms: product photos with corresponding copy that runs vertically or horizontally, editorialized get-the-look images, and interactive, rollover image galleries, like Tekton’s. All versions will inform and inspire consumers.
Consumers might not know what a nut driver bit tool is, but they might know it when they see it, which is why close-up, detail shot images are essential. Reassure consumers’ assumptions and expectations with as much helpful imagery as possible.
