The conclusion of crazy shopping seasons is one of the best times for setting up your blog right. It’s the perfect opportunity to post about your plans for the coming months, including favorite winter travel destinations, new gear and gifts, and your various wish lists.
As you’re preparing to engage with your readers, why not give them a way to shop all of the products and services you mention without leaving your blog? Plus, you can make some extra spending money (or a full-time income) while you’re at it!
The Power of the Buy Button
In 2015, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest all began experimenting with buy buttons, which effectively turn your socal media into one-click shopping carts. Now you can harness the power of the buy button to provide a seamless shopping experience for your readers on your blog while monetizing your own content.
The buy button and universal shopping cart from Bringhub help your blog connect content with commerce. Setup is a cinch—within minutes, you can make the products and services you feature in posts on-the-spot shoppable.
How does Bringhub do that? Instead of redirecting to a new page, the entire checkout lives in your content, so your readers’ eyes stay on your blog throughout the entire purchasing process. Plus, when a consumer buys an item through your Bringhub universal shopping cart, as long as you have your affiliate link set up, you get a commission from the retailer. It’s that easy!
Make the Most of Your Shiny New Buttons
Buy buttons benefit blogs of all types—in fact, why don’t you give it a try? Click on the collages and/or product links for the sample niches below and watch the Buy Button appear! Then scroll around to experience all the great features. Shopping straight from this blog!
You can post your favorite winter work outfit, or share your upcoming NYFW packing list. With a single click, your readers can buy the dress, pumps, and print clutch directly from your blog.
Just take a look at Heidi’s ensemble for a work trip to NYC! Heidi’s wearing all Zara, and while her look is unfortunately out of stock, you can still get these chosen substitutes for her ivory zipper blazer, satin red blouse, and white floral skirt in one click.
Fitness and Health Bloggers
Are you putting together a list of must-haves to help your readers reach their 2016 fitness goals? They can now buy the newest activity tracker and matching running gear without redirecting to a new page.
For example, Ponn loves her Plantronics bluetooth headphones (so comfortable with one ear, but the sound is a-ma-zing with both!). At home, she’s most comfortable in her favorite petite Champion yoga pants, and since it’s a brisk winter, she’s donning an Old Navy fleece zipper pull-over through her yoga sessions. For which—incidentally—she uses the Daily Yoga app on her Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (or Galaxy Tab 4), with her fitness mat from a Wii Fit combo pack. 😉
Put together the perfect recommendation package for a refurnished room!
Brittany is dreaming of an organized laundry room. She’d love glass dispensers for detergent and fabric softener, under shelf baskets for lost socks and dryer sheets, decorative baskets for bath and hand towels, an organizer for cleaning supplies, a garment rack and hangers (color coordinated for the family), and other must-haves like laundry baskets and an iron.
Buy buttons provide your readers with a next-level shopping experience by simplifying the entire purchasing process down to one click. With Bringhub, extend the shopping season so your readers can shop, explore and checkout from anywhere on your site.
