Walmart’s New Features & Why they Matter

1. Brand Pages

Walmart is joining the ranks of Amazon by allowing brands to have unique pages on their website.

This means you can better showcase products, offer promotions, and display marketing assets. This tool also allows brands to deepen connections with their customers. Rather than shopping at Walmart, customers can attribute their shopping experience to your brand.

Pro Tip: Brand pages are more than just a one-stop shop for your products. Take advantage of this tool to sell your products and tell a story.

2. Enhanced Content

Utilizing dynamic media elements makes for a more engaging shopper experience. With all the noise it is essential to capture attention as soon as the customer clicks on your page. Beyond using multimedia to grab eyes, they can be a tool to showcase products and convey information more simply.

Pro Tip: Have fun with it! Multimedia elements present opportunities to showcase your brand’s personality. Visuals can be as effective for brand perception as they are for eCommerce experiences.
