Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.42.26

We are happy to announce an integration with the leading cloud-based commerce platform, Shopify. ThingLink on Shopify lets retailers drive conversion with interactive images that communicate the various product details in a quick and elegant way. Shopify currently powers over 160,000 businesses in approximately 150 countries. ThingLink powers 2 million media publishers in 190 countries.

Retailers who download the Shopify/ThingLink app can easily:

1) Annotate their product images directly on Shopify, and this way communicate details and special features on their product images,

2) Link promotional images to individual product pages

3) Add depth to their brand’s story with embedded videos and music, or

4) Collect valuable product feedback with several other call-to-action options.

ThingLink offers its users over 70 rich media tags including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, Wikipedia, YouTube, Vimeo, MailChimp and PollDaddy. To embed content from these services to images, users only need to copy and paste a link from each website to the ThingLink image editor that is now directly available on each Shopify store that has downloaded ThingLink.

An additional bonus for Shopify users comes from ThingLink’s recent HTML5 integration with Facebook. Shopify sellers can now share interactive product images to Facebook and let shoppers explore items without leaving the Facebook News Feed.

Images and videos are most powerful assets for a successful online business; the key is to understand that they are not only illustration, but the place where consumer action happens. We are happy to help Shopify retailers drive engagement and conversion with interactive product images and video.

How Interactive Media Drives Measured Engagement

Today’s digital marketing landscape is extremely cluttered and every brand is vying for the same consumer’s attention. Brands have a secret weapon when it comes to catching the consumer’s eye – CONTENT! The problem is, your content needs to work harder for you. Enter the solution – interactive media.

Interactive media makes your content active vs passive. By providing a discoverable experience for users, you take brand storytelling to the next level and give your customers what they want – brand value. Now you have increased engagement and extended time spent on site.

Join Thinglink as we discuss not only the importance of interactive media and how it will change the way you look at digital marketing but also how important it is to extend your content across multiple digital channels to reach your customers where they are consuming content, including social media sites.
