Hi does anyone know of any websites where you can input product information and it will then generate a product description from it.
I know some people use content writers but I have checked and found that they would be costly for doing around 500 descriptions.
Kopigin is way too expensive for a store with with thousands of products.
$1.25-$3.00 per description? Way too high.
It would be cheaper to find an app developer on Odesk or a site like that.
My 0.02 cents worth.
Try out Iwriter, you will have to filter through the authors. But there are some gems in there. 3 dollar article. You can easily get 2-3 descriptions per article. So $1 per description. After doing some filtering and relationship building.
Be very clear in your hiring description what you need, and explain you will grade poorly for non native english speakers.
I've used microsoft excel to manage all that. It can be time intensive to set up the formulas at first, but once it is finished it allows you to manage all your inventory from the spreadsheet, including writing the product descriptions too.
If you're really ambitious, you can also build your own mini ERP system in Excel, using separate sheets in the document for each stage in the process (for those of you who self-manufacture, or manage manufacturing in some way).
How I do it using excel is to build a template for the product description itself:
- use information like collections, tags, etc. as filters.
- make a standard layout for what types of things you want to talk about, and then determine how those things vary based on the filters available.
- write the flavor texts for the different types of things that will be said according to collection, etc.
- build a formula that uses CONCATENATE() and if statements to put together the text for the collection.
If you are really interested my own source code, I can share that too. It is really different for every company though, so I encourage you to try out using excel and play around with CONCATENATE() and IF() to make repeatable product descriptions.
