If you’re not sure how to write product descriptions, take a lesson from journalism 101as they answer all the 5Ws and H. It is no rocket science.
Specifically, to start with;
#1 – Who is the user of the product?
Your product description should make it clear exactly what type of person wants and needs this product.
#2 – What are the features of the product?
Depending on your target market, you have to choose whether you want to share every single product feature, or you need to decide which of your target market will be best served if you highlight only a couple of key features.
Either way, your product description must include the features of the product.
#3 – Where can a person use that product?
Help your buyers in understand the places and situations where they would use the product. Is it for taking to the beach, or is it for using inside on rainy days?
#4 – When should the person use the particular product?
Give your buyer the examples of specific situations when they might need your product.
What are the specific use case studies where your product really comes in handy?
#5 – Why should a person use the product?
This is the most critical question to answer in your product description.
If you can’t express to a buyer why they should buy the product, it’s going to be very hard to sell it.
#1 – How can a person use the product?
The last question you would need to answer is how a buyer will make potential use of the product. Product descriptions are an excellent place to demonstrate how easy and efficient your product is to use.
