Amazon 360-degree Photography: Interactive Product Experience

Amazon 360-degree Photography: Interactive Product Experience

With advancing sales and increasing popularity, Amazon has become one of the most successful eCommerce retailers globally. In 2021 only, the total value of goods the company and its third-party marketplace sellers sold increased 18.8% to $378.95 billion from $319.10 billion in 2020. Amazon could do so because it focused on building the best user-friendly customer experience.

Today, Amazon has become the ultimate eCommerce shopping center, with 54% of shoppers starting on Amazon and 40% purchasing at least one item a month. 360-degree product photography helps brands and retailers to improve the mobile experience and significantly increases sales figures and engagement rates.

Amazon got introduced to the concept of Amazon 360-degree product imagery in 2018. Encouraging results led to expanding a 60-day pilot program to a standard feature for all sellers. After seeing higher conversion rates during the pilot program, Amazon expanded 360-degree product photography capabilities to many product categories.

Importance of 360 Degree Imagery in eCommerce

Enriching Mobile Experiences

360-degree imagery is an excellent way of optimizing screen real estate, allowing customers to feel the real-life shopping experience at their fingertips. The ability to move products on your screen and view them at your discretion entirely while looking out for minute details that you want in your product is as close as we can take virtual shopping to in-store shopping. The mindless scrolling through products with unattractive product images is now a thing of the past. As of Feb 2022, 57.38% of all internet traffic came through mobile phones.

Apart from 360-degree imagery, 360-degree informational videos are an excellent alternative for helping customers access valuable product content, making purchase decisions easier. 360-degree imagery sometimes fails to provide an all-angle view of products, making them less effective. A 360-degree spin video provides superior product information while being more cost-effective and efficient.

Different Angles of a Product
Recognition in Visual Searches

The eCommerce giant Amazon recognized the lack of visual browsing capabilities. So, they added a “Scout Search” browsing feature to allow shoppers to give products ratings with a thumb up or thumbs down. If shoppers give it a thumb up, it will load similar products — allowing people to browse with only photographs.

High-quality imagery is essential for visual search platforms to recognize your products. You also require proper names to match your visual search platform with high-end images. Adding 360-degree and interactive photography can help overcome the technology gap quicker.

Boost Sales & Conversion Rates

Amazon 360-degree imagery is an influential and effective tool that has driven conversion rates and increased top-line sales. Creating immersive and engaging customer experiences to retain customers and turn profitable while staying one step ahead of your competitors is a must. Many first-movers have already taken advantage of 360-degree photography and seen the tool’s effectiveness.

Boosting customer confidence, 360-degree features are a win amongst the customers. The technology will soon become an industry standard: increasing conversion rates, customer satisfaction, and customer loyalty, the most critical asset in the eCommerce world.

Maintain Brand Consistency

Creating consistent brand experiences for customers helps retain them and maintain an edge over the competition. Brands should convey their product stories to develop trust and loyalty with more consistent content creation. Brands can connect more effectively with their customers to ensure their products use the highest quality product imagery possible.

Essential to Monitor the Growth

Vendors cannot track the exact number or percentages in sales lift or conversion rates associated with Amazon sales. Third-party tools can help but are relatively expensive and do not provide accurate results. Vendors need to find affordable alternatives to monitor performance once they spin in live.

There are a few measures you can take:
  1. Look at overall sales numbers and conversion rates and monitor the increase or decrease since the launch of your 360-degree spin.
  2. Tracking your product rankings and comparing the before and after results.
  3. A massive win for you if your product becomes a #1 best seller in its category.

If you aren’t doing anything to enhance your product content, you won’t improve your products rankings, negatively affecting your Amazon sales. Revamp your content by adopting new technologies and features to enhance customer experiences.
