As ecommerce has become essential for selling wine, beer, and spirits, quality photography is more critical than ever. Here’s how to up your game.
Beverage alcohol ecommerce sales grew 42 percent last year, according to the IWSR. Online wine sales alone ballooned from $600 million in 2019 to nearly $2 billion in 2020. With so much brand building and selling occurring in the virtual realm, bad product photos are a liability. Whether you’re a new brand, a small retailer, or an established producer seeking to improve your customers’ online shopping experience, upgrading your bottle photography can have a big impact on your bottom line.
“Photography is such an incredible way to do the non-verbal storytelling,” said Brie Koenigs, the director of marketing for E. & J. Gallo Winery’s heritage luxury brands. “The bottle takes on a persona, it becomes the hero. And it’s really the visual interpretation of the personality of the brand.”
Advice on getting the best images to sell your wine, spirits, or beer.
When marketing bottled beverages, clean and clear bottle shots are a crucial element. But photographing a bottle is extremely challenging, whether the shot is intended for a white background on a website, or as part of a lifestyle image for social media. It can also be difficult to maintain consistency across an entire product line—or from one vintage of wine to another.
“In this day and age, visual content is the perfect gateway to your product,” says Laurie Millotte, a designer who founded Outshinery, an innovative web-based photo and video business in Vancouver, British Columbia. “It’s the closest thing people will get to before having the physical product in their hands.”
SevenFifty Daily spoke with Millotte, as well as a drinks industry photographer and a marketing executive, to find the best strategies for creating the perfect shot.
“The quality of the images and how it overall enhanced the quality of the promotion, translated into an increase in sales on those particular days. It proved to me that Outshinery’s services have an immediate and powerful effect on our bottom line.
Outshinery’s game-changing technology harnesses Hollywood’s CGI quality while keeping costs low. It offers superior results when it comes to precision, consistency, and speed, than traditional photography.
With Outshinery, there is no need for physical bottles, offering increased flexibility and faster turnaround times. The best part? All of this can happen even before a product is bottled.
