I recently learned about a platform called Paletly, which is a style search platform that allows users to shop directly from celebrity and street style images. It sounds pretty net, especially for all the fashion bloggers out there.
Monetize Your Blog With Paletly
Paletly uses image recognition algorithm, and it is able to identify the clothing that is worn in a fashion image, and bring back similar products, from more than 1200 global fashion retailers, and they are extending this awesome technology to bloggers.
Paletly has actually launched a Paletly ‘Shop Similar’ widget. The widget will allow fashion bloggers to monetize their blogs by transforming their blog images into nice and neat looking shopping windows. Check out the Paletly Demo to see it in action. The widget is a non-intrusive shopping carousel that your readers will see below the image, and it will showcase similar products as the items found in the image. When you reader s clicks on any of the items they will be redirected to the shopping retailer for the purchase. As a blogger you can earn up to 10% in sales commission for every purchase made from your blog.
The ‘Shop Similar’ widget you can add new revenue stream to you blog, while enriching your content. Users can keep track of all the purchases made from their blogs using the Paletly Blogger Program.
