How to create a catchy description

You know what you want to sell, but how are you going to sell it? Product descriptions are equally as crucial as remarkable photos. It is one of the most critical aspects of your store when it comes to conversion. 

Keep these things in mind:

  • Why would this person be interested in your store?
  • How would this person describe the product to a friend? 
  • What features or benefits would interest this person the most? 
  • Be specific; we advise not using generic descriptions.
  • Does your description tell a story?
