Focusing On Visual Search For Ecommerce Success

Platforms such as Amazon and Pinterest have undoubtably been leading the way consumers search for products online. Brands are taking note of this change in consumer habits, preferring to search for inspirational product images rather than the traditional text based search engines.

Image searching is instantly gratifying, instantly communicates brand values and shortens the buying process for consumers.

Set Visions CGI team creates emotive lifestyle and editorial product renders that connect with ecommerce shoppers, helping to convert the visual enquiries to online sales.

Our multiple product shots also provide the essential content that is picked up by search engines, elevating our client’s brand and Google ranking.

With huge investment in Pinterest Lens and Asos Style Match, brands need to take on board this change in shoppers’ habits, making visual searches key to their digital marketing strategy. Our advice is to optimise your images for SEO, add your alt tags and make your images mobile friendly.

Don’t be left behind with poor visual content.

Contact our CGI team to find out how we can help to visually engage with your online customers.

Convert home workers to online shoppers

With the average 9 to 5 now on hold, working from home is the new norm.

As workers realise perching at the breakfast bar 8 hours a day isn’t ideal, consumers are turning to online shopping for more posture friendly solutions. A surge in DIY and spatial reconfiguring has seen unused and unloved corners converted to our official home offices.

With the unpredicted surge of online shopping, some retail sites maybe caught off guard by missing product images or dated lifestyle shots that do not reflect the true personality of our nation’s homes.

As budgets are being reviewed, content marketing needs to continue to maintain the conversation with your customers. Increased web time is an opportunity to convert online browsing to purchases.

Our CGI quick turnaround service produces engaging photorealistic images for email, social and website campaigns. Our team just need basic product dimensions and a couple of reference images to get started.

As the unforeseen restrictions firmly stay in place, CGI photography is a great imagery solution to the traditional go-to studio shoot.

Deep Seated Imagery

Pix has the solution to effectively marketing your sofas online - CGI. Choices are now made with persuasive photorealistic imagery, lifestyle brands like Ikea and Sofology are already making the change. It’s time to consider how Pix CGI can benefit eCommerce retailers and consumers. Although it might be comfortable, can you afford to be left sitting still?

Low cost does not mean low quality

Set Visions only require fabric samples with drawings/snap shots or an isolated sample product to start production. Our software lets us adapt and multiply renders from a single model giving the flexibility to easily illustrate every sofa combination within a range. Using an automated rendering solution we also deliver images at the highest quality at a competitive cost.

Aspirational lifestyle shots are easily produced in CGI if you know how

Your consumers need to be able to trust what they see as the purchase is not only a financial commitment but emotional one. Sofas are key to family life, social gatherings and movie nights with a lot people to keep comfortable! Using poor quality imagery reliant on photoshop mock ups can have a negative effect on the buying decision, persuading people to search out competitors who have a range of photorealistic images for every sofa.

If they can see it, they can buy it

Another great benefit is seeing your product within a living room gives scale and context, enabling consumers to buy into the lifestyle not just the product. Detail shots of tassel and tuft provide additional inspiration of the product design features.
