What are the image dimensions required for products?

First impressions matter when it comes to easy sales. So, to avoid the fuzzy look on your products, make sure that the images are high resolution. Minimum dimensions are: 567 x 567px, this includes a ratio of either 1:1 or 4:5. Acceptable formats include .PNG, .GIF, .JPG and .JPEG. For further advice on your product images, contact marketing@secureyourworld.com.au

How to write a good description?

Short and sweet is the key. Here, is where you sell the product through words. What are the benefits of using the product? Are the steps simple? Does it require little to no assembling? Can it be managed from an app? Where can it be used?

Hint: Do not copy and paste from the manufacturer’s site. Write it like you would say it in a passing conversation. Having unique content (not a copy and paste) will improve your SEO ranking within Google searches (which is how your buyer will shop for what they need). If you need to work on your sentences, head over to hemingway.com where you can paste your text and receive handy readability tips.

Not everyone is confident with their writing skills, if this is you, reach out for help through your Accounts Manager.

Can I upload supporting documents?

Yes, we encourage you to upload any necessary documents that make the product easier to understand pre and post purchase. Go to ‘Upload your product/service documents’ at the bottom of your Product/Service Advert. Here you can upload user manuals, remote programming, drilling templates etc in .PDF format. Up to 5 documents can be uploaded per advert.
