‘Average Time on Page’ indicates how long an average customer spends on any given page of a website; for our purposes this is a product page of an e-commerce website. According to Google Benchmarking, in 2019 the ‘Average Time on Page’ for e-commerce websites was 38 seconds. Yet, according to research, purchase probability is at its highest when a person spends around 50 seconds on a product page. So, how can retailers improve ‘Time on Page’ in order to boost sales?
It’s simple: retailers must provide engaging and interactive content that is informative, concise, and immersive. This is the formula for the ultimate product page content.
Enter 3D View Content
59% of customers consider visual information to be the deciding factor in making a purchase. In terms of importance for the buyer, it ranks higher than both product description and price. Yet, 2D photos, no matter how good, offer no interactivity and little engagement. The same is true for video. In fact, 95% of shoppers find product pages with interactive 3D View content more engaging than those with product videos.
