Why should businesses have product content online?

It's not just about online sales - the Internet has a huge influence on how we shop in store. Consumers are doing research online - they're searching for product availability, pricing, and promotions to inform their in store shopping. It's called 'purposeful shopping'. If a business has product or service information online, they can engage with the purposeful shopper and attract them in to their store, build loyalty and grow their business.

What are the benefits of having this content on your marketplace website?

Google will recognise your site as the go-to source of information for your cause, product category, location or purpose. As you and your members add more content, your site quality and ranking continues to improves. Your site will appear more prominently in more search results, and enquiries, sales and in-store visits will flow on to your members.
