Include Images

Adding an image can provide your customers a better understanding of what your product will look like. For example, if your business sells clothing, you can include an image of someone wearing it. This gives the customer a vision or a sense of how it may look while wearing it. If you’re able to, try to include another item that goes along with the look that you are offering. Images not only can speak a thousand words, but they can help sell the product.
