Images play a huge role for any online store and we mean not only their quality, but also the quantity. Let us review how to create the history with Magento images and for what purpose we should do it.
Why we need to create the history
If you can attract the customers’ attention with photo story, then the minimum thing that it can do is to get interest to the product and the maximum benefit of it will be the purchase of this product or some kind of advice to buy it in the sphere of the customers’ friends. So, for this purpose we need to use a photographic instructions guide to Magento products.
Attracting customers’ attention is one of the components of the half success in Magento store. Of course, you can use several images for replacing or adding the detailed product description, but the history is more effective. A small story how to apply this or that product, tool, cosmetic product will help to move a potential buyer to the positive choice.
Also it is almost unchangeable thing if you sell extraordinary things or decorative cosmetics. For example, it is a non-standard charger for your phone or any innovative cosmetic product.
