In this day and age it is important to have your online shopping cart fully integrated with your social networks. Most people spend their time online using networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. Added to that, they are frequently sharing things that inspire them with their friends, co-workers and family members. One of the best ways in which businesses can market their products and services is by “going viral”. Volusion is one of the best online shopping cart platforms with many ways to link directly to your social networks, ensuring that all of your potential and current clients hear about your offerings.
Full Facebook Functionality
Volusion allows you to integrate fully with your Facebook fan pages for your products and services, or your company Facebook page. When Facebook users “Like” your pages, they will automatically be signed up to receive updates about your business. You can use this on a daily basis to post discounts and coupons, or to highlight certain products and services that you sell.
In addition, because the Volusion web design platform is fully integrated with Facebook, clients will be able to purchase your offerings directly so they never have to leave what they are doing. This is very convenient and easy!
Direct Posting to Social Networks
You will be able to post directly to other social networks, such as Twitter, which are designed to take shorter messages with links. The reason why it is important to integrate with Twitter is that it is probably the most used social network when it comes to mobile users – smart phones, tablet devices, etc. You want to make sure that no matter where your clients are, they are hearing about and able to act on your message.
With plugins and a bit of coding, Volusion can also be integrated into many other social networks such as Linkedin, Pinterest, Reddit and another 250+ social channels to post automatically.
Video Sharing Integration
Volusion’s web design also gives you the opportunity to add your YouTube videos directly to your product pages. Most businesses find that by creating high quality videos that explain how to use their products and services, they are able to generate much more sales than without. Clients in general prefer to watch a short video guide than to read a text, so this is something that you should definitely consider when you are creating your online shopping cart.
