Good product descriptions are enormously important for the success of an online shop. After all, in contrast to traditional brick-and-mortar shops, customers shopping online do not have the option of picking up the product in question to inspect themselves. In a classic offline business setting, in all likelihood there would be an attentive salesperson on hand to answer any questions and show off the product. For online shops, this task is performed by the product description, and just as a good salesperson is defined by a set of specific characteristics, a good product description must also fulfil certain criteria in order to win over customers.
A common mistake made by online shop owners is to simply use the official product description provided by the manufacturer, but as Google penalizes sites with copied content in its rankings, this runs the risk of lowering the site’s online visibility. What this also means, however, is that with unique and informative product descriptions, you not only provide a valuable service to existing customers, but you can also improve your Google PageRank, making your store easier for new customers to find.

The zeitgeist of industrialized countries and much of the rest of the world has shifted strongly to Internet-based social networks, and deeply visual venues such as Pinterest, Instagram and industry leader YouTube have been grabbing a giant share of attention.
