We all have seen spectacular examples of ads integrated beautifully into social media feeds. Whether you like it or not, they have always been there, and will always be. The ads are designed to sell a product or service to us, but do they succeed in their motive? Here, we attempt a review of how social media affects e-commerce to get an answer to this question.
Social media is a great way for us as designers to share our work with others online. Possibly the best platform for this is Pinterest. While most other social media revolves around text or sharing interesting articles, Pinterest is a purely visual medium, making it the perfect choice for putting our portfolio pieces on a virtual pedestal for the world to see. In order for a Pinterest photo to be widely shared, it is essential that it be pinned and repinned by the masses. The trouble is, there was never any way of knowing what kinds of photos garner the most repins. But thanks to Philadelphia based startup Curalate, we now have a pretty good idea about what makes for a popular Pinterest photo. If you can work some of these elements into your portfolio photos, you will increase the likelihood that your work will be shared in front of a worldwide audience of other designers looking for inspiration, as well as potential clients. So what factors increase a photos “pinnability?”
If you’re an artist or designer, you have more social network options than just Pinterest. Don’t get me wrong; Pinterest is a great avenue for sharing and posting your work. However, there’s also a bevy of other possibilities where you might thrive (or be the big fish in a smaller pond). Check out these art-driven sites.
The strategy of selling products via Facebook page is heightening day-by-day and it is inevitable for most businesses. There is nothing wrong with the idea as it gives the businesses a potential opportunity to tap the database of 5 million customers worldwide on a social platform. The idea of social shopping via internet triggers the sales of most business; in fact takes it beyond imagination on most occasions.
Today, everybody knows the importance of Social Media. Everyone is familiar with the efficiency and effectiveness of it. So, if you really want to grow yourself, you should show your quickness and short briefness. Few people don’t pay their fully attention to their blogs and also do not check it for long time, which is not a good sign for a blogger and also for reputation of a website. May be that is why Twitter set their character restriction of 140 words.
First there was sewing at home, then there was window shopping, now there is Pinterest. Pinterest is a brand new kind of social network where Pinners can post photos from around the web on their specialized virtual bulletin boards and share their findings with their friends and strangers. The beautiful layout features a never ending scroll bar which maximizes the chance of people wasting hours on the site without even noticing the time flying by. Pinterest is now a main generator of traffic to blogs, retail websites, funny Memes, and much more.
