Your product video will be vitally important to the success of your ecommerce campaign. We’ve demonstrated here often that product videos have a much bigger impact on purchasing decisions than than static photography. This is really unsurprising as a not only does video displays the product in motion with sound and action, but also the medium lends itself naturally to story telling – it’s much easier for a video to be compelling. Around the holidays customers are inundated with offers so standing out is a must for driving sales.

2. Customize your Clips – Offer Customers Something New

Your product video is going to be a big conversion driver, however just to get those extra conversions wrapped up for Christmas, it’s important to exceed a customer’s expectation at this time of year. Push the boat out; offer your customers extra shipping options, gift wrapping and better customer support. This particular time of year is highly competitive, therefore giving customers an extra incentive to buy your products is vital. Don’t forget to add these extra product details into your ecommerce video in order to make them stand out even more!
