ThingLink announces its integration with Shopify. Shopify retailers can now drive conversion with interactive images that communicate product details in a quick and elegant way.
ThingLink, a popular interactive media platform, announced its integration with the leading cloud-based commerce platform, Shopify. The integration lets Shopify 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 two million media publishers in 190 countries.
Retailers who download the Shopify/ThingLink app can easily annotate their product images directly on Shopify, and this way communicate details and special features on their product images, link promotional images to individual product pages, add depth to their brand’s story with embedded videos and music, or collect valuable product feedback with several other call-to-action options.
ThingLink offers its users over 70 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 images or videos to Facebook and let shoppers explore products 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,” says ThingLink founder & CEO Ulla Engeström. “We are happy to help Shopify retailers drive engagement and conversion with interactive product images and video.”
“I see ThingLink as a great way to make my storefront more engaging as customers can easily learn more about my products through interactive images. In addition, the Facebook integration allows me to leverage the social network to drive traffic to my storefront and create awareness”, said Kate, a Shopify store owner from Ducky Street.
