A major benefit to displaying social network icons on your site is that your customers can instantaneously give feedback about your site or products in the exact moment it occurs to them, before they are distracted to something else. Here’s a social media icon set I have created. I’m happy to make it available for all Miva Merchant blog readers to download and use for free. Enjoy!
Social media icons in this set include 64px, 32px, 24px, and 16px sized icons for:
Commonly placed in the footer of ecommerce stores, social media icons can also go into the header, or in the navigation tree (side nav) of your site. You may also want to include the social network icons in a separate email encouraging customers to share about their purchase on their social profile.
As a merchant, being active on these sites lets you respond to customer feedback, giving your customer a more personal experience and helping build customer loyalty to your brand. Remember that one of the main benefits of participating in social media is being able to connect and interact with customers even better than with a pure retail experience.
Would you like icons for other social networks not represented in this set? Leave a comment below saying which one(s).
