I have done this quite a few times. Bought the exact same product from another site because the description on the first one wasn't good enough or incomplete.

This isn't just an issue with sites, it's also a problem with several Amazon listings. If the sellers were to improve their product descriptions, it would stop their buyers from going to other sellers.

In 1982, advertising legend David Ogilvy sent an internal menu to all of his agency employees titled, “How To Write.” Four of his 10 rules directly dealt with simplicity, especially rule #3:

“Use short words, short sentences and short paragraphs.”
That's what the flesch-kincaid reading ease index grades you on. Whenever I'm writing anything, product descriptions or otherwise, I make it a point to break it down into bite sized pieces so that it's easy enough for anyone to understand.

You have to say something more than 'this is helpful'. Such statements aren't allowed in this forum. You have to give your own intelligent assessment of the post.

What a read. Article should have took its own advice and kept it short and simple. In my opinion people tend to look at the product description because its a short description. So if there is a lot of products the "customer" is sifting through while making a buying decision they are generally going to use the product description to be quick and make a decision. So i generally trying and use eye catching and simple keywords. I do sometimes neglect this strategy because I am rushing through but I am glad I ran into this article to bring it to my attention again.

It starts with having a product that you believe in. The rest is just accurately describing its features in a favorable and hopefully exciting light.

Ideally, you would want to be able to have a list of objections that you can eliminate with the copy. Also, if theres any way to can crush the competition subtly, without using any direct language, names or insults then that is sometimes helpful. Just dont make it obvious...

I think most product review is not really same as the product. They try to manipulate the information but it works great to drive conversion and I agree on it.
