 there are a million ways to slice-and-dice your stuff so don’t be afraid to get creative!

spotlight your bestsellers

show off your best selling products by making it a group of its own. when someone isn’t quite sure the exact place to start they often start with bestsellers. think of your bestsellers section as a sort of customer-approved section. by telling your prospective customers what products everyone else loves you remove some of the feeling of risk. you’re telling them: here’s what most people love so you will too.

lead with your best look

as you create your groups and figure out your bestsellers do an inventory of your content. do you have product images that really show off all the details and major selling points of your product? what about a how-to video or showing your video in-use? there’s a lot of value in showing your products in motion. according to Big Commerce: utilizing video can provide an increase in conversion rate with 62% of consumers saying they watch product reviews before purchasing.

bundle up

it’s all about value when it comes to holiday shopping: people want more for less. consider creating holiday product bundles that combine related items for a slightly discounted price. this is a great way to introduce customers to new products they may not have originally thought to buy. 

the last step to create the perfect gift guide is to make sure your photos and videos are top-notch. if you’re telling your customers you have the best gifts for them to give loved ones your content should reinforce that message by showing just how amazing your product is.
