Integrating social shopping into your website offers a dynamic way to bridge the gap between social media engagement and e-commerce. By utilising features like Loop Clips, you not only provide an interactive shopping experience but also enrich your brand's digital presence. This fosters a more cohesive user journey, encourages greater customer interaction, and ultimately, drives sales. Follow this guide to effortlessly embed Loop Clips into your homepage header and unlock a new level of customer engagement and product discovery.
Step 1: Access Your Loop Clips Dashboard
Log in to your account and navigate to the 'Loop Clips' dashboard in your Visual Shopping Menu. Here you will find the Loop Clips customisation options where you can tailor them to your brand's needs.
Step 2: Customise your Loop Clips
Select the Loop Clips you wish to showcase on your homepage and fine-tune their appearance to match your brand ethos. Our platform offers a myriad of design customisation options, enabling you to alter aspects such as size, layout, colours, borders, icons and shoppable elements. To ensure that your chosen Loop Clips seamlessly align with your branding and goals, utilise the real-time preview feature located on the right-hand side of your screen. This allows you to make adjustments on the fly and see exactly how the Loop Clips will look once embedded.
Example of some of the settings you can apply to your Loop Clips:
Try clicking on a Loop Clip to reveal the interactive video Lightbox and its shoppable elements. These can also be customised using the Lightbox and button settings.
Step 3: Refine Clip Selection: Display Clips by Source and Hashtag
Choose the type of videos you want to show—such as User-Generated Content (UGC) only. Then, refine your selection using a hashtag filter to display only clips with specific hashtags in their captions.
To add a hashtag to existing videos, go to your media library, edit the caption, insert the desired hashtag, and click 'Save'.
Step 4: Copy Embed Code
After customising your Loop Clip, click on the 'Copy Embed Code' button. This will copy a unique piece of HTML code for you to insert into your website.
Step 5: Embed into Your Website Header
Copy the generated HTML code. Open your website's content management system and locate the section where you can edit your homepage header. Paste the HTML code into the desired position.
