You may not think it, but you can grow your business by making clever choices about how you use images on your site. FooPlugins can help you do this. Here’s how.

Use images for e-Commerce

Would you buy something that didn’t look amazing? Probably not. If you have an e-commerce business, you need to have images and they need to be awesome.

Your images should showcase your product. Do this by using FooBox, a lightbox perfect for displaying an image, or FooGallery. The gallery is ideal for displaying a selection of images, especially if you’re highlighting different views of the same product.

FooPlugin’s responsive capability means that the image adjusts automatically, giving the best view of your product. Plus, if you’re using the Image Viewer Gallery template, images are displayed with the caption and description, letting you give more details about your product.

Grow your business with video

Demos, tutorials, and how-to videos can all give you the extra edge you need to stand above your competitors. Videos showing how a product works, or explaining a concept, can not only position you as an expert in your field. Quality videos can also help improve your SEO.  Online courses are also becoming popular and video seminars are a useful addition to course material.

FooGallery can provide you with the ideal platform for your videos. Choose from a variety of templates. Integrate video and images in the same gallery, to showcase products and demo how they work. Plus, there are plenty of ways in which you can customise your video gallery.

Use a lightbox

A lightbox allows your image to be highlighted on the screen, without leaving the page. So when you use FooBox and someone clicks on your image, it pops up. So whether you’re displaying products or providing visual instructions, FooBox allows you to do this easily and professionally.

The social sharing that is built into FooBox also lets you share your images and grow your business. Plus FooBox lets you add HTML content, like forms or lists. A great way to use this to your advantage is to create opt-in forms, where you can gather email addresses, subscribers and other information to help you reach a wider target market.

Best of all, FooGallery, FooVideo and FooBox all come with a variety of templates. Choose the one that suits your content and your website best. And once you’ve chosen your template, you can still change the border styles, thumbnails and more. Using FooPlugins to display your images gives them a more professional feel, which can help you grow your business.
