Major benefits of videos to WooCommerce product galleries

Product videos drive your sales growth for many reasons. Some of them are:  

More detailed and informative product display

A product video provides a detailed and informative display of the product. It shows every side and part of a product thoroughly. In addition, you can add a voice description to the product video to describe the product’s key features and specifications. Thus, product videos give them a better understanding of your product features and benefits. This can lead to increased conversion rates because visitors who watch product videos are 73% more likely to buy. 

Apart from that, if you have an online store that sells mobiles, then adding a screen recording by the mobile in a video that demonstrates the video recording quality and features of the mobile’s camera can help you get more conversions. 

More transparent & trust builder product showcase

By adding product videos, you can enhance the transparency of your product showcases. Product video presentations are less susceptible to manipulation with fake elements. So, showing your products in videos can help build customer trust and credibility and make them feel more confident about their purchases. 


Search engines love media content, including video. Besides that, EyeQuant data shows that product videos hold viewers’ attention 2.8 times longer than product images. Consequently, product videos increase the dwell time of your product pages, which helps your WooCommerce site rank higher in search engine result pages and get more visitors (customers). 

Educate your customers

When it comes to newly launched or uncommon products, customers appreciate innovative solutions but may feel uncertain about using them effectively. In such instances, adding instructional videos can demonstrate proper usage and make customers feel more confident in their purchases. 

Playful and persuading 

The music, animations, and effects in your product videos make your product showcase aesthetic and playful. Furthermore, customers generally prefer watching and listening to a product over reading about it. So, it easily connects with your visitors and persuades them to purchase.
