DANIA, Fla., Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Issa Asad, CEO of Q Link Wireless, LLC, and social media guru with over 15 years of telecom experience, has recently advocated for the use and effectiveness of Like2Buy, a marketing platform for Instagram users, specifically business owners and marketing professionals.
Like2Buy, a program from Curalate, is designed to convert followers into customers through the simple click of a button. Optimized for all devices, the tool provides an in-depth analytics system that may help businesses track the behavior of mobile shoppers and increase revenue.
Asad is also the CEO of Quadrant Holdings, LLC, and is known for his multiple books on best practices for social media strategy, including profitable use of Snapchat, Vine and Alibaba. Instant Profits with Instagram: Build Your Brand, Explode Your Business is Asad's first published book. Within the book, Asad stresses the importance of using Instagram to visually develop a brand and market to followers.
"Optimizing your Instagram profile is essential to visitors being able to find your site," said Asad, whose support of Like2Buy correlates to his strong belief in the power of Instagram. "Businesses need to know how to relate to their followers at a personal level and keep them interested in their brand."
Like2Buy has been hailed by major brands, including 2014 Internet Retailer Top 500 brand Charlotte Russe, which experienced a higher shopping conversion rate using Like2Buy compared to other social media platforms. In six weeks the retailer reported 13,000 clicks, and was able to analyze the click data to learn about consumer behavior.
Using Like2Buy, when followers click on an Instagram picture, the item goes to a product page, rather than directly to the site. Followers can also save their favorite items to purchase later. Curalate charges a monthly fee for the use of the platform.
According to Asad, as social media use and brand engagement continue to evolve, Like2Buy could be a "major untapped social media marketing effort for small-to-medium businesses to international brands."
Asad believes Instagram is a frontrunner in the new wave of marketing, and marketing products such as Like2Buy offer retailers and businesses alike to reach new audiences, while developing the brand with a gallery of images.
