Dealers are increasingly looking to online sales for their businesses. An important aspect of making those sales is writing compelling product descriptions.

We’ve pulled together some valuable tips from top online marketers that will help you generate more sales online.

Write Winning Product Descriptions

1.The Voice

Finding your voice means finding the tone that matches your personality and how you want the reader to feel about your products. It’s best to know your primary buyer, who they are and how they would read your listing. If you’re not sure how to translate your voice into writing, experts suggest describing your product aloud into your phone, using the Note or Text application.

2. Mobile

More than 50 percent of traffic comes from mobile devices. That means shoppers are more likely to experience  your listings on a small screen – probably checking their social media accounts, texting friends and scanning their email inboxes, as well.

As a result, it’s more important than ever to create descriptions that are concise and memorable.

3. Tell the Story

Because you are dealing with incredible items with a story and provenance, tell the story to pull your buyers in! The story each piece has is what makes it unique, and one of a kind. Tell your buyer why they must have it!
