Buzzefeed made viral listicals kind of a thing. Those posts are like a dream come true for shopaholics, but even more so for e-commerce business owners. Seriously, you can’t buy that kind of product attention. Luckily for you, there’s now a Buzzfeed Channel for Shopify users.
Buzzfeed Channel for Shopify
So, this channel helps you get your Shopify products in front of Buzzfeed editors. Tag your products so Buzzfeed editors are able to search, find, and feature your products!
Buzzfeed has an audience of over 200 million readers. So, we’ll let you decide for yourself what it could mean for your business if they featured your product. Not a half-bad marketing strategy, huh?
Using the Integration
First of all, this integration is only currently available for US merchants selling to US customers in US dollars.
Installing the integration to your Shopify site is simple. From there, just select the products you want Buzzfeed to discover, set your commission rate, and that’s just about it!
If your product is picked by an editor, a unique link will be created for Buzzfeed to embed in its content or product lisitng ads promoted on Facebook. With this link, you’ll receive quite an increase in site traffic. You’ll also be able to track the sales attributed to Buzzfeed and organize the monthly Buzzfeed commission payout once you’ve received customer payment.
Keep in mind, Buzzfeed picks products that best engage its audience. Their team of writers will be creating the content surrounding your product, so what they say is up to their discresion.
Want the Integration?
Alright! All you have to do is log in to your Shopify site and select the (+) symbol next to Sales Channels. Select Buzzfeed from there. You can always head over to the Shopify App Store if you need more details.
Heads up: to use this integration, you’ll need to at least be on the $29/month Shopify plan. Also remember that you need to be in the US, sell in USD, and ship to the US.
