Choosing the right product tags for your Magento and Shopify online store
Posted on July 15, 2019 by
Over recent years, consumers have shown great interest in online shopping because of the convenience, choice, time-saving and effortless experience it gives to them. The eCommerce industry also thrives to consistently improve this experience and as a result, shoppers are migrating from offline stores to online stores. But the consumer expectations of online shoppers are no different from those shopping offline. E.g., A visitor stepping into a physical store with the intent of buying a shirt would be interested in learning about the Size, Color, Fabric, Design/Pattern, Fit, Sleeve Length, Collar Style to name a few.
The same visitors shopping online would also need to have these questions answered, before making their purchasing decision. These questions define a consumer’s interest in a product and in the online world, merchants should use attributes & tags to define each product in the product catalog. These tags help visitors discover and engage with the products online. Hence merchants should choose attribute & tags that answer the basic offline consumer questions if they were to buy that product.
Tags not only answer questions on the characteristics of the product but also gives analytics engines like Tagalys, access to consumer trends when they shop at an online store. The hypothesis behinds products like Tagalys, is that consumers are buying a collection of tags that come together.
