Create Clear & Concise Product Titles
We hopped onto Walmart and looked up product listing titles of a few products.

Parallelly, we hopped onto Amazon and looked up product listing titles.
Can you notice the difference?
If you look closely, you’ll find that product listings titles on Amazon are lengthy and stuffed with keywords. Whereas that’s not the case with Walmart product listings.
While creating product listing on Walmart, make sure that your product titles are not lengthy – anywhere around 50-75 characters in length should be fine.
To create Walmart-optimized product listings, we’d recommend using the formula shared by Walmart themselves:
Walmart is extremely particular about product listing titles. They don’t want sellers to stuff their product listing titles with keywords – so it’s really important to create titles that are precise yet at the same time creative.
A few other important points to consider while crafting product titles:
- Consider adding brand, model and color to your product listing titles.
- Don’t use special characters like @, ^ or ½ – it’ll look really cluttered.
- In case your item is available in different colors, avoid adding color to your product listing titles.
- Include primary keyword in your title.
And most importantly, add the element of creativity.
Upload High-Quality Images
Product title and description can only get you so far. There’s no point in knocking other sections of your product listing out of the park – if you aren’t focusing on uploading high-quality images.
Without professional and attractive product photos that help your audience gain deeper insight into your product, chances of maximum number of people hitting the “Buy Now” button is slim.
Following are the two kinds of images:
- Primary Product Image – will appear in search results.
- Secondary Images
Your primary image should display the product clearly with a white background.
Here’s an example:
Don’t just focus on your product’s primary image. Also make sure that the secondary images of your product look professional and get your buyers to take the desired action.
You can’t use images containing illustrations, logos, additional graphics, overlays and text – so it’s important to keep this in mind.

Use Influencer-Generated Content on Your Product Listings
Whether you sell clothes or tech products, you can collaborate with influencers to not only reach out to a world full of people but also use influencers’ credibility to position yourself as a reliable and lovable brand.
By getting a influencer to promote your products, you’re transferring their credibility to your brand. When you work with influencers, you’ll both be creating high-quality content – where influencer(s) endorses your products via images, stories, long-form videos or anything else.
But once you’re done with these campaigns, that doesn’t mean that you put this content in your “Memories” folder. You can repurpose this content and add them to your product listings. For example, if you sell leather bags, then you can use the image where influencer you collaborated with is holding your bag – add a white background and upload it on your Walmart product listings.
But we’d advise – communicating this with influencers ahead of time.
This will help you add credibility to your Walmart listing and brand.
