So what makes a title descriptive enough?
First of all, you should know by now that selling products online is all about search. Potential buyers look for products using search engines as well as the search on PayLoadz Store . Make sure that the product titles have just the right keywords so that they appear in the results when shoppers search for them. Think of yourself searching for the same product on the Internet and the keyword or phrase that you would enter in the search box to find that product. That keyword should be a part of your title.
Secondly, the title should explain what the product is all about. While using right keywords may help show your product in search engines; people may still not click on the link because the title may not be telling the whole story about the product. For eg: the titles ‘How to stop snoring’ and ‘How to stop snoring without surgery’ use the appropriate keyword ‘stop snoring’; however, the latter explains the content of the eBook better. This is what makes it a more descriptive title. Use the space we allow for a good title! Remember, the more descriptive and accurate the title, the more potential the listing has for buyers to click it and check out your product.
Another thing to remember is that spelling counts! While we won’t be giving you a spelling test anytime soon, misspelled words can make you lose out on sales. Spelling is so important because as buyers search for your products they will be typing particular keywords and phrases into the search tool. This means that if your product’s title contains misspelled words, your listing may not be displayed! Always double check the spelling before you list an item. If you think any of your titles may have misspelled words, go back and make edits!

Why Product Images are Useful:
Did you know that text and images stimulate different parts of the brain? When you think about it that probably seems pretty obvious. When you have a section of text, it is vibrant and chronological which means that it takes a certain amount of time in order to explain or understand it. In contrast, images can be understood quite quickly, within a matter of seconds. This is why it is so important to use product images when you list your digital goods for sale.
At PayLoadz, we know that the Internet has become an integral part of daily life. We get our news online, we stay in touch with friends, family, and colleagues, and we do a significant amount of shopping on the World Wide Web. Because we are so connected, images have quickly become a huge part of any online experience. Shopping online is a total experience, so why lose customers because your product listings lack images?
Here are some general advantages to using product images:
1. Product images give the customer an idea of what they’re paying for.
2. Product images allow the customer to visualize the product description quickly.
3. People recognize images quicker than text so the product image will be the first thing that attracts your customers. The description comes second.
4. People love examples and samples of what they’re buying. Images achieve this perfectly in the virtual goods industry.
However, you do need to remember that using an image is only part of the entire product package. Because you’re selling virtual goods, the image you choose is the only visual representation of your product. This means choosing a relevant and good-quality image.
Using product images will allow your customers the whole Internet shopping experience. Images are essential to increasing your sales, but they won’t achieve that goal alone. In conjunction with product images, make sure that you take advantage of the use of relevant keywords, well-written descriptions, and descriptive titles for your products. Consider using images alongside free samples and downloads as well.You can include images with your product listing while setting up the product in your PayLoadz account. The option for adding images is available under Store Information section on Product Setup page.
Listing your products in the PayLoadz Store will definitely help boost your sales. But listing your product alone with text only won’t do the trick. Take in mind what we’ve just shared with you regarding product images and make some changes.
How Product Sample Files Can Help Your Sales
Everyone loves a free sample, so why not enhance your sales on PayLoadz with product samples? It is no secret that product samples can only help your sales when offered. Though you need to get the word out about your virtual goods and work as hard as possible to ensure that people know what you have to offer, the product itself is often its own best salesman. Obviously we don’t mean that your product without all the hard work will magically sell itself, but the impression, atmosphere, and tools you give it all contribute to your success.
This is why product samples are so important, especially for virtual goods. Regardless of the cost of your product and what you put into your marketing efforts, product samples are usually the most cost-effective selling method out there, and have been for years. Think back to the days of door-to-door salesmen – didn’t they always have a product sample with them? The principle behind that strategy has not and will not change, regardless of technology!
It really doesn’t matter what type of product you sell in order to use a sample to get your foot in potential clients’ doors. Samples can be applied to anything and is especially useful for digital goods. Many customers would like to see what you’re offering and to test the download waters. Are there glitches? Is the software or file compatible with their computer system? Samples can answer all sorts of questions right off the bat. One of the main draws of using product samples is that your whole advertising campaign can change. Once you offer free product samples, you can use the word “free” in your ads. Free stuff always brings in readers and visitors. That’s the hook – free samples. Go ahead and reel them in with your awesome products!
Offering product samples gets action. Just with a great title and description, a shopper may not be ready to commit to becoming a buyer. Throw a sample into the mix and you’ve got someone who is ready to learn a little more about your product. He or she will order the sample, download it, and won’t be able to move on without testing it out. This is a great way to spread the word about your product and gain new clients.
Product samples aren’t expensive to offer and will end up increasing your sales and overall investment in the long run. You can offer free downloads, product sample files, or a combination of both through the PayLoadz system. You can also use discount codes to those who have sampled your product for the full version. The possibilities are endless. In fact, PayLoadz makes it incredibly easy to set up a sample, offer discounts, free downloads. We encourage you to be creative with using product samples when selling your goods.
