Tips for Creating an Online Store

Post your favorite products with link sharing

I’m excited to announce our latest feature, which will be useful for both eager shoppers and for store owners looking for some free marketing. Link sharing lets people post products from any Flying Cart store on their Facebook, MySpace, StumbleUpon, and Twitter accounts. Once a product is posted, it is seen by all of the person’s friends. Then the friends click the link to come visit the store. It’s a fun way to shop and a simple but very powerful marketing tool.

Look for the link sharing icons on product pages just below the “Add To Cart” button.

Link Sharing icons

How does it work? For example, if I find a product I like such as the Tokidoki Kaniza from Immortal Beloved Toys, I can click on the Facebook icon (third from the left) to show all my Facebook friends. A screen pops up with the product information and I can add a comment. Then I click “Post” and I am done.

Link sharing can be turned off on the Store > Settings page when logged in.

    This is awesome! I love it. I tested it out on myspace and I love that it gives you the option to post it as a blog, a bulletin or in a certain section on your myspace page! Great new feature!
