In this articles tutorial, I’ll show you how to add a videos tab to the product. Let’s take a look.

Why You Should Put Videos on WooCommerce Product Page

If you want your products to come to customer engagement quickly and easily, a video is worth a thousand photos. Not only do videos provide a better sense of product features and functionality, they can also help you tell a story about your product on your own style, from that, helping to create emotional connections that resonate with your shoppers.

Videos are a great tool for sharing your company culture, your company image, promoting an upcoming contest or product release, or raising awareness for a cause you sponsor. And of course, you can approach your customers to understand what they want and which one they want to purchase.

You can create product videos that serve various marketing purposes, for example:

  • Create lifestyle videos that showcase a product in action such as a model wearing an outfit you sell, a user using your phone that you sell, a cyclist using your gear on the open road or a chef creating a gourmet dish with your cooking products.
  • Instructional videos that provide information for your customers about how to set up or use a complicated item.
  • Product reviews and testimonials hosted on YouTube
  • 360° views of your product in video form, rather than using alternate images

Another benefit of adding YouTube videos to your product pages is the SEO value from the additional detail text. Most search engines display a few lines of text about each web page when returning search results, people call it is rich snippets. These pieces of information will help users recognize how relevant a page is to their search.
