Whether you call it livestream shopping, social shopping, or streamable shopping, in recent years, live shopping has reemerged to change the game for businesses all over the world. The combination of live streaming, social media, and e-commerce strikes a chord across the board, from the tech-savvy members of Gen Z to nostalgic millennials and Gen X.
Though similar to the TV shopping networks popular in the 80s and 90s, today’s revival of live shopping has the added advantages of 1) being more widely accessible across any device with internet access and 2) offering instantaneous, direct-to-customer sales opportunities.
With live shopping, you can host sales events in real-time and show off your products in a more interactive and personal way. Incorporating gamification adds a rewarding element that makes the experience more fun and engaging. Together, live shopping and gamification can help boost sales and build a loyal customer base.
