Introducing Shop the Look

Let’s face it. We live in a world where we are surrounded by screens, are always connected, and constantly sharing every moment of our lives with an audience that’s willing to “follow” us. User generated content is on the rise, and there is an increasing number of shoppers who are sharing details of their purchases where they give credit to their favorite brands.

Take Instagram as an example. Seeing a phenomenal growth in just six years, it has grown to 500 million active monthly users sharing over 90 million photos and videos a day, with over 40 billion photos shared till date. And in case you’re wondering if it’s just pictures of babies, pets, or posts that scream out #foodporn – there’s a whole lot more that is out there, including glowing testimonials about the awesomeness of your brand!

How does Shop the Look work?

Our leading computer vision technology’s object detection capabilities, recognizes objects from a picture, no matter how busy the background might be. Taking it a step further, our advanced extraction capabilities detect specific products from objects within the image. Taking into consideration the specific attributes that a shopper prefers, the products identified in the photograph are automatically combined with your catalog data, thereby making all your visual content clickable, and shoppable simultaneously. This makes it possible for your shoppers to view exact product matches, as well as visually similar options instantly, without the need to navigate away from the page.

Here’s how Vue.ai’s Shop the Look works

Our social media curation ensures that all the imagery is authenticated, and contains the most relevant products for your brand. We find, collect, and curate photos posted by your shoppers in real-time from across multiple social media channels. We’re able to make your social media channels actionable – providing a seamless transition from social media galleries and your e-commerce store.

Moreover, these shoppable images can be used pretty much anywhere you’d like! Create lookbooks with what’s trending, what your favorite customers are wearing, showcase the latest celebrity styles with what you’ve got in your catalog, or just promote these looks on the relevant product detail pages (PDPs) to help your shoppers visualize ensembles immediately. In essence, you get shoppable galleries wherever you want them, whenever you want them, without any IT know-how. And here’s the best part – all the social proof your brand ever needed, wherever you want it, whenever you want it!
