Aside from increasing sales revenue, online retailers are often fascinated with the aesthetics and visual attractiveness of their stores. And that’s a good thing because a customer’s purchasing decision is strongly influenced by their first impression of your brand, and how they feel about their overall shopping experience. 

Showing Youtube videos in your store is also a good way to attract customer’s attention. In this post, we will give you a simple guideline about how to embed Youtube video into Shopify.

It is estimated that almost 75% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase when they can see a video explaining how it’s used. And customers would rather watch a video about a product than pour over a long product description.
