A product description is essentially a short form of advertising copy designed to describe and explain your product to potential customers. Simply put, it gives all the facts and information about your product in your ecommerce website. These product details could be a single sentence, a long paragraph or perhaps even Bulleted. You can create a simple description or elaborate on it using bullet points to detail each of its advantages. But whatever you do, don't forget to include a call to action - tell your visitors what will happen if they purchase your product within the next sixty seconds, an hour, a day or even a week.

You should keep the product description short, clear and up-to-date so your potential buyer can get the gist of what he's reading. Don't talk down to your potential buyer with terms that are too general, and don't use technical terms if they're not specific enough for a layperson. You can also use bullet points to break up large sections of text so your visitor can scan through them and understand what you have to offer. Just make sure that your bullet points lead the reader to your product quality and safety instead of directing him somewhere else. Your product description doesn't have to be terse, it can be as detailed as you want it to be, covering every detail and any optional extras that will help your potential buyer make a decision.

One way to keep your product descriptions current and relevant is by making use of Google's online product reviews. Online product reviews are a great way to find out what others are saying about your product and even how good it is. Some people even choose to create their own product descriptions based on their experiences with various products online. Whatever method you choose, it's important to remember that you should always follow the guidelines listed above and you should always use a high quality SEO copywriting service to craft the most appropriate and useful description for your product or service.
