E-commerce is a dynamic business. Shoppers are constantly browsing sites for the best deals or for the latest of their favorite products, adding to wish lists, and exploring product recommendations from friends and influencers. On the other hand, online vendors are always on a tear to try to draw in shoppers and convert clicks to cash with various techniques, such as by reducing page-load time, posting compelling product images, and aggressively targeting ads.
Since performance is by and large the holy grail of software development, tools abound for building fast software, notably those for optimizing online media, most of which are images and videos. Optimization in this context means downsizing the media files but maintaining a satisfactory level of visual quality for delivery. The smaller those files are, the faster your website loads.
You likely find yourself continually editing images for enhancement by eliminating flaws and tweaking the overall presentation, typically with software tools. Examples of basic editing are straightening, cleaning, and cropping images, as well as adjusting the contrast, exposure, and white balance. With advanced software like Cloudinary, you can automate not only editing tasks, such as quality adjustment and encoding, but also delivery.
Measuring the level of interest your videos generate helps you produce compelling content. The measurement and optimization approach must, however, address the various aspects of each video, including the A/B test hypothesis and iterations. A high engagement rate spells effective videos; a low engagement rate calls for content improvement.
