How You Wish Your Product Images Looked on Amazon

If you’re searching for some product photography inspiration, you are exactly where you need to be.

 

Whether you are just getting started or a seasoned seller, it’s never too late to refresh and improve on your product listings.

 

 

Product photos play a huge role in helping customers decide whether to buy your product or not. They are arguably the most important part of your listing. When a potential customer visits your store, you have only seconds to entice them to keep looking at your products, and amazing product images are the perfect way to communicate what you are offering visually.


Amazing product photography should be informative, clean, evoke emotion, and tell a story. We’ve put together some examples of brands that do just that.


Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle


We love how Hydro Flasks’ product images are a combination of technical information and lifestyle photography. The bright colors, outdoor scenes, and use of real people using their product communicates the brand’s feel while the diagrams intuitively answer a potential customer’s questions about the product.

Petrainer Dog Training Collar


When you’re selling a tech product, it can be a challenge to feature all of your device’s capabilities without making the gallery feel cluttered. In this case, Petrainer uses lifestyle imagery and value propositions in the same image - which we think is pawesome.

Thymes Eucalyptus Body Lotion

 

Thymes products don't just smell heavenly, they look angelic too. They use their product images not only to show off how great that particular ASIN looks, but to also show off the rest of their product line. This can not only help with up-selling, but can give your customer ideas of what other products you might have which can build customer retention and loyalty.

Post-it Notes


Although this Amazon listing only features three product images, Post-it simply features product uses with lifestyle imagery and pops of color. Rules were made to be broken, and this brand does that by not using humans in the images. This example shows us that if your brand is a household name with a product that is straightforward to use, you may be able to reflect that in your photography.
