If you are getting traffic from Pinterest and want to expand into other discovery shopping social networks. Here are a few of the best:
With a name standing for “want, love, need” Wanelo is a social shopping website that get ”1.3 million visitors a month” according to an NYTimes article from Jan 2013. Each image takes you directly to an e-commerce site where you can by the item, no blog intermediary allowed here.
Dark background, bigger images and less pins per page than Pinterest so it is easy to focus on each image. Brands using it: Nordstrom and Blue Nile
Has a simple, one column feed. Lots of menswear and has a design edge. You can mark items as want, collect or own.
The Fancy features neat and quarky products. This was one of the first discovery engines to come out but has recently made an interesting development in monetization by accepting payments rather than forwarding shoppers on to a 3rd party site.
Another attempt at monetizing discovery engine traffic. How it works? If you see something you like you can “buy” it via Luvocracy at the lowest price they have on record. They scour the internet for the product you like and give it to you at the lowest possible price. They act as the intermediary between you and the online merchant. This business model seems a little inexact I am tempted to try it to see what the shopping experience is actually like.
It is like Pandora for fashion. You follow content from top brands, retailers and personalities, you can also create and share your own lists. It aggregates all the fashion items you may be interested in, based on your previous selections, into once space.
