Recommended Best Practices

Building Trust via Social Marketing

Utilizing SHOPLINE's Instagram Feed feature can create social proof, showcase brand stories, enhance store trust, and increase brand affinity, ultimately boosting visitor conversions. This feature also allows customers to directly jump from your store to your Instagram homepage, which encourages them to follow your Instagram account, increasing followers and likes, and accumulating private traffic.

Creating Scenes to Stimulate Purchases

Captivating photos synced from Instagram can create attractive selling scenes for products, igniting customer purchasing desires. The crucial aspect is to make the purchase process convenient for customers.

By tagging products in Instagram photos, consumers can experience an interactive Shop the look scenario. This enhances the user experience while also improving product exposure, driving more conversions and sales.

Instagram Feed serves as both a product showcase arena and an interactive shopping zone. When consumers are captivated by the exquisite photos and click on the products in the photos, they can view the product's main image, name, and price. By clicking the tag or Purchase button, they can open the product detail page and proceed with the purchase, completing the transaction.

Displaying Your Storefront Based on Customized Configuration

After upgrading the SHOPLINE Instagram Feed, you can now filter photos by hashtag. If you have various tag types in your Instagram feeds and need to set the storefront to "Show only" or "Don't display" INS photos with specific tags, you can directly filter them by hashtag in the admin panel.

In addition, the Instagram Feed's pinning feature allows you to manually select top-selling product feeds. These pinned feeds will remain fixed on the storefront's photo feeds section, unaffected by updates to INS feeds. This helps you showcase more attractive product photos.

The hashtag filtering and pin features help you efficiently optimize the storefront page, ensuring the store page is always aesthetically organized, presenting your well-thought-out style, and conveying your most desirable content.

Enriching Webpage Styles with Multiple Photo Feeds

Instagram can display various content, including product showcases, feature reviews, brand stories, and customer cases.

SHOPLINE's Instagram Feed can sync both photos and videos from Instagram and automatically update store content in real time, maintaining a fresh feel for consumers.

SHOPLINE's Instagram Feed supports configuring multiple sets of photo feeds. You can select different Instagram photo or video feeds to display on different store pages. For example, you can link a photo feed conveying brand values on the store homepage, or link a photo feed related to product user experience on the product page.

This not only creates diversity across different store pages, preventing user aesthetic fatigue while browsing the site but also improves the consistency of the Instagram Feed and website pages, optimizing website content.
