Alibaba, China’s biggest e-commerce market platform, essentially makes more money in revenue and employs many more people than even eBay. Alibaba is famous amongst users and even business hosts because of how cheap the platform is. Alibaba is backed by China’s cheap labor and the cheap manufacturing processes which allows the products on the site to be sold at a price so low.

Hangzhou, China – March 25, 2018: The main building in the headquarter of Alibaba group in Hangzhou. Alibaba, founded by Jack Ma, is the biggest e-business company in China.

Alibaba also happens to be one of the oldest e-commerce websites, only second to Amazon which is 26 years old; while Alibaba happens to be 21 years old. For people looking to host a business on the e-commerce front, especially those who want to be bulk suppliers of commodities, Alibaba is the place to go. However, even on Alibaba, like any other platform, product images are what sell and make the news. 

Generating the most awesome-looking Alibaba Product Promo Images is as simple as a drag and drop with Glorify’s templates!

While most e-commerce platforms are rather stingy about their defined set of rules around their products, Alibaba, though strict, is not as inflexible as others. Sellers are permitted to publish as many as 6 photos per product that they wish to sell, and six really is the sweet spot which can help one show their products in all lights and angles effectively. Since the number is much, much lesser compared to the 250 pictures you can publish while selling on a platform like Shopify, it also becomes all the way more imperative to get your six just right.

Why are product promo images so important when selling online?

A lot of amateur or new sellers on e-commerce platforms fail to realize the paramount importance of the power of a well-designed product promo image. Product promo images are the first thing that a user is going to see when they visit your store page on Alibaba.
Let us say you are a supplier of fancy-looking planters. As a matter of fact, you will not be the only one or a sole seller of fancy planters. So, how do you grab attention and drive consumer traffics towards your brand? How do you make people buy from you more than everybody else? The answer is simple. Images. Help your potential consumers visualize that planter in their bedroom or their balconies to have them convert into real customers. You could use images of your planters shot in various angles and beautify it with Glorify templates to make them shine and stand out for real!

Look at product promo images like your look at promotional products in offline selling. Remember that one time when you visited a supermarket and were offered the newly launched healthy baked nachos for tasting? That was the first time you learned about the products, you built an interest in it because it was offered to you right in your face for awareness. That is pretty much what visuals do in terms of promotional images for products. 

A well-designed product promo image will not only help you sell things faster or at least grab the buyer’s attention online, but such images can also effectively be used for promotional purposes otherwise. You can use your pre-created product promo images for use in billboards, flyers, signages, and perhaps, even your business card. You never know when and where a visual strikes someone- make your product promo images count with Glorify!

To get you started, here are some tips and best-recommended practices to keep in mind when designing your product promo images-
  • Keep the design of your product promo images in tune and cohesiveness with your overall brand colors, patterns, and fonts
  • Always try to retain the brand identity with your product promo images. If you are not an established brand, this product can work towards building a brand reputation. On the flip side,  if you are already an established brand, by using elements of your brand, you will generate much traffic from your pre-existing loyalty base.
  • Keep your design attractive, engaging- but do not ever overdo it. Many sellers tend to get a little carried away and add a lot of elements to their product promo images which backfires them eventually. Always remember that the main aim is to show off the product more than anything else. By adding too much extra noise, you take the user’s attention away from the product itself. “When in doubt, keep it simple silly!”
