We are visual beings. Why else do we respond so strongly to sites such as Pinterest and Instagram? The creators of both sites nailed it. Instagram lets us connect to other users in a more personal way and see aspects of brands and people we might not otherwise see.
If you already spend a lot of time on Instagram, you may need to lock up your wallet. Chirpify adds the ability buy and sell on Twitter and Instagram by simply typing, “buy.” This means you can be the first to purchase newly announced products faster than anyone else. No payment information required.
I can already foresee many impulse food purchases when I am hungry, travel purchases when I have cabin fever (often), and clothing purchases whenever I see anything I love.
How about you? Would you use Chirpify as a buyer or seller?
