In order to persuade customers that this is the brand they are looking for, companies should focus on the quality of content they want to use for their product descriptions.
Companies should understand that content influences more than any other medium. Prospects are interested in learning more about a product or brand; hence, it is important for the company to educate them.

Companies while finalizing their content for product description should also brainstorm on the preferences of their prospects. In order to provide value to customer, it is imperative to understand them first. Customers want to have a custom content delivered on their station.

Study the needs and behaviors of customer and always incorporate them while writing a product description. It is better to speak in the language of the customers. Although the product may have all the benefits but if it is not delivered to them in the language they can understand, all efforts will go in vain. A better example would be to use story telling approach, in which you know when to approach customer through a formal tone and when through a more casual tone.

Unique content will also provide higher search ranking on Google and other search engines. Also, use keywords that customers will be looking for. Incorporate keywords in the product description that are more likely to be searched by the customers on search engines.
It is advisable for the companies to put themselves in the shoes of the customer. Think as a customer about what benefits do you want to have from this product and are the features of the product sufficient enough to deliver those benefits?
