How to improve conversions for a WordPress E-commerce with an Instagram widget

We would like to share an idea to improve your website’s conversions and revenues with social contents as your Instagram feed.

It’s well known that one of the most recurring dreams is to improve the number of Instagram followers and monetize them.

Another recurring dream is to boost the conversion and to sell a lot of products from an e-commerce.

How is it possible to improve your Instagram followers?  

– Create exclusive Instagram-only contents

  • You have to give a valid reason to follow you on Instagram too!

– Use Hashtags

  • Including relevant hashtags, you can significantly improve the reach of your posts. Hashtags should be related to the post content and/or your industry.

– Connect yourself with others on Instagram

  • Being active on others’ profiles (liking and commenting on their posts) or responding to comments on your posts, is one of the best ways to grow your audience.

– Follow more people on Instagram

  • Unless you’re a big brand, no one wants to follow you if you only follow 25 people. Start to be active and addictive, follow more people and become active!

– Post more on Instagram!

  • Try to post at least a few times for a week, ideally at least once for a day. More often you post, the larger variety of hashtags you use, the more you’re engaging with other Instagrammers, the faster your audience will grow.

But the “fil rouge” is to produce QUALITY CONTENT. Our followers want quality contents, quality pictures to share, to comment.

This second point is strictly correlated to the first one and to the QUALITY CONTENTS, to the quality pictures.

You can improve the conversion of your e-commerce, for example, embedding on the products pages some quality pictures by your Instagram widget.

So your customers, in the same page, can:

  • visualize quality images of your products,
  • read informations about the products,
  • know “how much” these products are liked, re-shared by the other customers,
  • read the different comments, to known which is the opinion about them
  • to be informed about Testimonial opinions.

Try to embed social contents with an Instagram widget on a WordPress website!

First of all, create a webpage for your product and put your Instagram feed using a shortcode.

A good and simple layout for your product webpage could be done with

  • an abstract in the top (a little description),
  • a carousel view to exhibit your product image by Instagram account. For example, you can display three images and allow to open it in Lightbox mode.

Immediately below, you can add

  • a description more accurated with more informations,
  • a photo gallery with grid view.

You can Embed an Instagram widget with the plugin “Enjoy Instagram feed Premium”.
