Best Plugins to add video in the WooCommerce Product Gallery

Product Image Gallery

Videos are one of the most popular content consumed on the internet. Videos can help you tell product stories to your customers and visually show product feature and their use.

Why you should add a product video on the product landing page?

Adding a video on your product landing page can help you increase your sales by almost 80%. Recent studies show that 90% of users believe that a video about a product is helpful in decision making.

Videos are a good return on investment. Video creation is not the cheapest or easy task, it pays off big time. Although nowadays the video content creation tools have become a little cheaper and there are many different applications available in the market as different price ranges. You can even create a video using your smartphone.

Videos can also help you in increasing your website Google ranking as visitors will spend more time on your website. Thus, longer exposures build trust and signify search engines that your website has good content.
