Shoppable content is a great way for creators to expand their reach across platforms. But many influencers disproportionately focus on just videos and do not give shoppable photo posts the chance they deserve. In this guide, we highlight how to create high-quality shoppable images either from scratch or by repurposing your existing shoppable videos on Logie.
You’ll also learn how to easily publish these photos on Amazon and different social media networks so you can maximize exposure and generate more in commission earnings.
Logie makes everything super easy for you so you save time and (more importantly) generate high-quality content for free.
