What can I do to get better reflections in the floor? You can see they are there (under the red box), but they are not well defined at all. I have the products sitting on top of clear plexi a few feet in front of the white background.

Any other suggestions on the photos would be appreciated as well.

You need a very reflective surface to get a good reflection.

Or you could composite the reflection...a quick edit.

If you don't mind doing it in Photoshop, here is a way it can be done: https://youtu.be/Y4Sds​1maJkI (external link)

(Note: scroll the video to around the 12:00 part to see how it is done.)

Also, the shadows from product to product, if not possible control them better [you see those on the red box - nasty], bust be added later, when you make a composite of more than one shot. Shoot the shadow casting white boxes in one shot and the red one in other - then combine.

When making fake reflection remember about geometry and how the picture changes, do not overdo it.

Blessies.

Easiest & quickest way is to place the items directly onto the plexiglass. You will get inherent reflections doing this.
