How to Write a Product Description That Doesn’t Suck
Written by Content Cucumber
People tend to be pretty unimaginative with product descriptions. The standard outline is a quick bullet-point list that highlights the product’s main specs. And while that’s a good start, it’s not going to boost your site’s SEO power or convert more customers. It’ll just be another unremarkable list in the vast sea of lackluster product descriptions.
Content Cucumber is known for creating high-quality blog posts, but our writing services extend far beyond producing standard 800-word articles. If you want to update any area of your website with new content, our writers are more than happy to help your site gain the attention it deserves!
The deep-rooted human desire to share stories and communicate our unique perspectives with each other is by no means a recent phenomenon. Our intrinsic appreciation for creativity and connection stretches all the way back to the dawn of mankind. In fact, historians believe that writing was one of the very first skills that humans acquired tens of thousands of years ago.
If you’re interested in meeting the co-founders of Content Cucumber this summer, you’re in luck! We’re excited to announce that we will be attending the annual Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE) event in Chicago from June 25-28. We will be featured in the exhibition hall along with over 600 other vendors, including our internet friends from Wagento and XSPACE.
The old adage “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” might apply to various household appliances, but it’s not necessarily the best way to approach business decisions. Without innovation, creativity, and new ideas, companies in all types of industries will begin to falter. Today’s modern consumers expect businesses to stay up-to-date on all the latest trends and technologies, so continuing to do things the “old-school” way isn’t exactly a winning marketing strategy.
In a world of clickbait articles and sensationalized reports, it can be easy for people to dismiss any information they don’t agree with as “fake news.” Although there are sources that may be more credible than others (your local news channel vs. your Facebook feed, for instance), the widespread distrust of the news media in general has made it increasingly difficult for our nation to effectively communicate about issues that impact all of us.
Kittens, the Internet, and Kittens on the Internet

Full disclosure: this article is going to discuss the grammar of online content. I know this doesn’t quite meet Buzzfeed levels of entertainment, but I firmly believe that everyone who uses the internet desperately needs to brush up on their writing skills. Also, in a sincere effort to make this dry topic a little more appealing, I’ve included some photos of adorable kittens to illustrate my points.
Take a second and picture yourself scrolling through Netflix, searching for the perfect show to binge-watch this week. I’m not talking about blasé “Netflix and chill” content; I mean high-quality productions that you actually want to pay attention to.
After skimming through seemingly hundreds of low-budget horror movies and cringe-worthy sitcoms, you might finally stumble upon a hidden gem that you thoroughly enjoy… but wouldn’t it be easier if these awesome shows appeared automatically? Or if the entirety of Netflix was customized for your exact specifications?
Imagine if medical scientists gave up on researching potential cures for diseases, or if the entirety of NASA no longer cared about what lies beyond our solar system. Try to picture a future where musicians stop composing, artists permanently put away their painting supplies, and all engineers decide that technology needs no further development. Worst of all, imagine how you would feel if your favorite author decided to stop publishing new books—in the middle of a series. Sounds like a pretty miserable world, right?
