Why Should You Use Annex Cloud for Your Visual Commerce?
10 Reasons To Use Annex Cloud’s Visual Commerce Platform
Leverage ﬂexible displays to ﬁt your brand’s needs.
Showcase your images and videos in a variety of customizable formats, like high quality sliders on product pages, Pinterest-like board functionality, mixed editorial displays, or interactive galleries featuring voting and commenting. Our in-house design team makes sure that all galleries and widgets are exactly what you want. Flexible Visual Commerce displays ensure your content is always shown in a format that ﬁts your site, communicates exactly what you want and encourages desired customer action.
Hot Spots give you a way to easily highlight your products and facilitate product discovery.
You can integrate your existing product feed into Visual Commerce to associate content with products while keeping designations like product category, parent/child relationships, and product collections intact. Even if you don’t have a feed, with the help of Annex Cloud’s curation interface, you can associate products with their images by entering the product name and URL. Then, use Hot Spots to show visitors exactly which products are featured.
Comprehensive image rights management makes it easy to maintain permission to use customers’ pictures across your marketing strategies.
Annex Cloud’s integrated rights management provides a rapid way to obtain photo permissions from your advocates. Your Visual Commerce solution then locally stores images and videos, and provides a record of your permissions requests. This way, you can easily use your customers’ content while keeping them happy. Our customer success team also brings expertise to help guide you through any questions or concerns with regards to rights management.
Shoppic and the Shoppic Scheduler makes your Instagram shoppable and drives more revenue from your social media team.
Shoppic transforms your Instagram followers into shoppers with a simple link in your Instagram bio. That link takes them to a shoppable gallery hosted by Annex Cloud which then delivers users directly to your product pages. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about any implementation. The Shoppic Scheduler app makes utilizing Shoppic easy by offering an easy-to-use interface to plan and scheduler Instagram content, connect it with your product pages, and add appropriate attributes and tags in the same step as scheduling.
The Smart Image Ranking Algorithm determines and prioritizes your best performing content.
Smart Image Ranking weights the value of your visual commerce images based on a variety of onsite and social parameters such as: number of clicks on the image, favorites, and revenue generated and displays your content in priority order. You can add different weight values to the different factors to drive the results you’re looking for whether that’s increasing engagement or boosting revenue.
Image Syndication, Multi-Site Capabilities, and Internationalization expands the reach and impact of your Visual Commerce content.
With all of your images in a single dashboard, our platform allows you to select where you’d like to distribute them. Manufacturers can source photos from or send images to their retail partners, while retailers can do the same. Companies that manage multiple sites can easily send speciﬁc images to certain properties. Meanwhile, Visual Commerce customers who operate sites for certain geographic areas or languages enjoy automatic translation and the ability to tailor which content is displayed according to regional product availability or other variables.
