Whether you’re looking for tips on how to transform your living room into a jungle oasis or seeking decor to actively add to your home, Domino has you covered. On Instagram, the brand—both a lifestyle publisher and an e-commerce platform—has grown their community to more than 600k followers. The channel now serves as a jumping-off point from beautiful imagery to products and content.
To drive consumers from images to their website by way of a shoppable Instagram feed, Domino leverages Curalate. Only about 10% of the brand’s Instagram posts are actually dedicated to commerce, but the added exposure on a critical consumer touchpoint has resulted in a conversion rate that’s 120% higher than the brand’s cumulative average across channels.
In the following Q&A, Shani Silver, Director of Digital Content at Domino, provides insight on how to turn Instagram into a valuable driver of discovery and revenue.
