Automated Product Descriptions Including Advisor at billiger.de

Billiger.de is automating its product descriptions with AX Semantics' software for several years already and thereby adds great value to its customers.
The company uses automation to generate well-structured product descriptions which guide the reader through the product in depth.
Customers will find a short summary at the very beginning of the product descriptions, where the USP is elaborated briefly and meaningfully based on the basic data. The whole description is divided into multiple, well-organized paragraphs, with one section dedicated to each topic, along with an appropriate headline.
In the section "Worth knowing" readers will find further information and practical tips presented in the form of a bullet point list and ultimately a list of advantages and disadvantages in tabular form.
In the enumeration of the advantages and disadvantages of the respective product, the triggers from the body text are reused in order to present the features again in a short and concise way.
Thanks to the use of content automation, two billiger.de employees were able to generate more than 100,000 well-structured, high-quality product descriptions in just one year, providing readers advice and added value. Simultaneously, the company saves a huge amount of time that would usually be required for the creation of the descriptions. Recently, billiger.de succeeded in increasing its visibility index from 18 to 80between the end of 2018 and 2020, resulting in more traffic and a great success.
