Tips for selling your home décor products on Instagram without undermining the importance of Instagram likes



Instagram is a great place to draw inspiration about home designs, home projects, and home décor because visual media seems to be the perfect platform for displaying home décor products in more creative ways than possible in any physical store. The truth is that home décor and Instagram is like a match made in heaven, and you will and countless accounts on Instagram dedicated to serving the audience keen on adding more dash to their home interiors. 

Instagram is a dream house for those who want new ideas and items to decorate their home interiors to spruce up the appeal and add some new styling elements. Whether you are searching for ideas about your kitchen renovation or a new sofa or try to envision how your new home interiors would look like, following the home décor accounts on Instagram would make you feel like Alice in Wonderland. 

Why home décor brands opt for Instagram?

Home décor brands opt for the channel that seems to be made just for them as they can display a wide array of products in almost endless spaces ideal for creating a dream world that sparks the creative instincts of home designers, many of who are homeowners themselves. Besides displaying their products on Instagram in the most realistic way, there is another reason for brands using Instagram. Brands can use the visuals to portray the products in real-life setting so that buyers can envision how each product will fit into their home spaces and add to the appeal.   Alongside, home décor brands can closely engage with the audience and develop an online community while showing off their products in action at the homes of customers.

 Engaging with the audience on Instagram

Merely displaying the products on Instagram with classy images will not generate the desired audience engagement. It needs some more work on the part of home décor item sellers, interior designers, and decorators to create the visuals in the right way that keeps the audience engaged. The best accounts on Instagram know how to curate their feeds to provide content that upholds the aesthetic and is tailor-made to suit the exclusive taste of the target audience.  To gain high visibility in the super-saturated Instagram world, you must know your audience like the palm of your hand, which helps create unique content that rapidly garners hundreds of likes. However, the pace of likes flowing organically might not make you happy, and to help your feed gain instant popularity, it is better to buy Instagram likes

Selling on Instagram

 Besides promoting and marketing your business on Instagram, the added attraction is to sell your products on the platform, which is now serving as an e-commerce platform. The features of Instagram allow you to create a digital storefront and start selling your products without using any third-party platform that helps to get better profit margins. 

Here is how you can get going when selling home décor products on Instagram.

Inform people that your Instagram account is for shopping too

Instagram provides several tools to enhance the selling potential on the platform. Although there are many methods to incorporate the selling features that facilitate shopping for the visitors, you must first inform them about the arrangement to buy your products on Instagram. Use your Instagram bio to convey all information about your business and the selling facility that you offer to your customers on the platform.  Post a photo declaring that viewers can shop by using your Instagram feed. The image notifies viewers about the shopping aspect and provokes them to click on your account. 

Display products by creating a gallery of images

A lot depends on the proper use of the Instagram features to ensure that you get a foothold on the platform as a seller. To start with, you must build up a gallery of your product pictures on the Instagram page. An attractive gallery of images will help to drive your customers along the buying funnel. Allow viewers to see the photos without using filters to avoid any distortion of the images. Post pictures of real customers posing with your products because it increases engagement by 30% as the pictures are more authentic and trustworthy.  Using more photos dominated by the blue color schemes seems to be capable of drawing more attention. These pictures draw 24% more attention than pictures in red. 

Provide detailed caption to the images so that you can share complete product information with viewers that make it easy for them to make quick decisions. You can use some tools like Like2Buy and Curalate that facilitate the selling process by leading viewers to the storefront.

Sell directly by allowing buyers to pay via WhatsApp

Although Instagram accounts allow shopping to complete the transaction, it requires linking back to an e-commerce store by routing the purchase through a platform like Shopify. To avoid a third party’s involvement, you can collect payment by using your WhatsApp number, which must appear in your Instagram bio.  After viewing the products on your Instagram store, buyers can text the shipping details and payment to buy them. It cuts a long story short by avoiding the role of an e-commerce store in the transaction.

Use hashtags to increase your reach on Instagram.

Users type hashtags to search content on Instagram and discover new posts about interesting topics. To make it easy for users to find your products, use hashtags on your post to expose your products to them and help them understand your product before they click on it. Placing hashtags at the end of the product description helps avoid any distraction when going through the product information. 

Create attractive product descriptions

Product descriptions help to share all information related to the product, but it must be interesting to read and attract viewers’ attention who are your potential customers.  Using emojis in the description makes it attractive and exciting while breaking the monotony of continuous reading. 

Going ahead, you can think about using influencers to sell your products.

Mesh WiFi: Boost Your Internet Connection Throughout the Entire Home




Have you ever struggled with slow internet speeds, buffering videos, or dead zones in your home? If so, you’re not alone. Traditional WiFi networks often need help to provide consistent coverage throughout a home, especially in larger or multi-story houses. That’s where Mesh WiFi comes in. 

From the birth of the commercial internet in the 1990s to 93% of Americans using it today, the internet has changed a lot. However, our Wifi seems to have stayed the same since we got access to it. But Mesh Wifi is here to change that. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what Mesh WiFi is, how it works, and whether it might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Understanding The Basics of Wifi

Wifi is a technology that allows you to connect to the internet wirelessly. According to Britannica, it uses radio waves to transmit data between your devices and your router, which is connected to your modem. However, traditional WiFi routers have some limitations that can impact your internet connection. The first limitation is the Wifi “dead zones” we keep finding around the house.

Additionally, obstacles like walls and interference from neighboring networks can further impact signal quality. Traditional routers also require manual updates and can be difficult to set up for optimal performance. These limitations can be frustrating for users, which is why newer technologies like Mesh WiFi have emerged to provide better coverage, improved signal strength, and advanced features.

How Mesh WiFi Can Improve Your Internet Connection

Now, how exactly can Mesh WiFi improve your internet connection? Well, one of the main advantages of Mesh WiFi is that it can eliminate the dead zones that often plague traditional WiFi networks. Instead of relying on a single router to provide coverage, Mesh WiFi systems use multiple interconnected nodes to create a seamless network that can extend throughout your entire home. 

This means that you can finally say goodbye to weak signals, dropped connections, and frustrating buffering delays. On top of that, companies like Wow Way are actively working to bring the price of mesh Wifi down to make it more affordable. With Mesh WiFi, you’ll be able to enjoy fast and reliable internet speeds in every room of your house, no matter how far away you are from the router.

The Advantages of a Mesh WiFi System for Your Home

Mesh WiFi can provide seamless coverage throughout your entire house, eliminating dead zones and ensuring that you have a strong, reliable signal no matter where you are. But more importantly, Mesh WiFi systems often include advanced features like automatic updates, parental controls, and device prioritization, making it easy to manage your home network and keep your family safe online. 

Plus, Mesh WiFi is highly flexible, allowing you to easily expand your network over time and add new devices as needed. All in all, a Mesh WiFi system can provide a fast, secure, and easy-to-manage home networking solution that’s perfect for modern households.

Selecting the Best Mesh Wifi System for Your Needs

With so many Mesh WiFi systems on the market, it can be tough to know which one is right for you. To make the selection process easier, consider your needs and budget. Do you have a large home or multiple floors that need coverage? Are you looking for advanced features like parental controls or device prioritization? Do you want to expand your network over time? 

You should also read reviews and do your research to find out which systems have the best reputation for reliability, security, and performance. PC World recommends that you also check the coverage of individual mesh nodes when you make a selection. Better coverage from each of them would mean you need fewer nodes in your house, keeping them from turning into an eyesore. 

Understanding The Cost of Mesh WiFi 

Mesh WiFi systems offer many advantages over traditional routers, but they do come with a higher price tag. A good Mesh WiFi system can cost anywhere from $100 to $500, which may be a significant investment for some households. However, it’s important to consider the long-term benefits of Mesh WiFi when weighing the costs. 

With a Mesh WiFi system, you can enjoy seamless coverage throughout your home, faster speeds, and advanced features like parental controls and device prioritization. Plus, Mesh WiFi systems are designed to be easy to set up and maintain, so you can avoid the frustration of dealing with dead zones and dropped connections. 

Another piece of good news is that according to the New York Times, most people who want mesh WiFi can buy a useful system for around $200. But ultimately, the decision to invest in a Mesh WiFi system will depend on your specific needs and budget, but for many households, the benefits can make it a worthwhile investment.

Mesh WiFi is a newer technology that can greatly improve the internet experience in your home. While it may require a higher initial investment than traditional routers, the long-term benefits can make it a worthwhile investment. With the increasing demand for reliable and fast internet, Mesh WiFi is likely to become even more popular in the coming years.
