#1. ‘Moment mosaic’ template

This layout can simply go well with any business type. With a classical text block surrounded by images, customers would find your messages immediately when looking at the widget center. 

All content could be edited with a character limitation to ensure your text always displays at best. Some content suggestions from us:

  • Your store name/ Instagram address
  • Brand slogans or taglines
  • Current promotions such as “10% off” or “free shipping”,…
  • Inspirational quotes that relate to your brand.
  • Call-to-actions to convince customers like “Click to discover more wonderful images!”

So whether you’re selling kid clothes or accessories, you can give this template a try.

#2. ‘Close-up’ template

A small content section has shown up in the bottom left corner to balance your photo feed. Together with a powerful and modern color palette, this template is surely a perfect match for any fitness, sportswear or gym store.

Via this template, you can:

  • Introduce a new collection
  • Add cool or funny taglines 
  • Run marketing campaigns for selected collections/ items

  • Type in customer feedback in a double quotation mark “”.

#4. ‘Spotlight’ template

Simple is the best. Sometimes you only need to highlight one single photo of the day, so this template is definitely for you.

#5. ‘Adventure’ template

Another innovative and modern style layout for anyone selling tech gadgets, digital electronic kinds of stuff, outdoor gears or camping equipment, etc…

With a centralized content block, you can catch customers’ attention right away to your messages, so perhaps these can work:

How to use Creative Feeds like a pro?

Enable auto-update for Creative Feeds

We’ll make sure to renew your Feeds as scheduled. In order to do this, just go to Media Source > choose your Source > toggle Auto sync from “Off” to “On” >  select your syncing schedule > Save.

Arrange Creative Feed widget images

Please note that the images will be displayed exactly like their orders from Gallery embedded. So if you want to change something, a hack is to go to Gallery > choose your Gallery > use ‘Pin’ feature to bring any photo to the top. Also, only single images will be chosen to display on your Creative Feed widget, videos or carousel will not include.

Choose different layouts for desktop and mobile version

Yes, you can easily customize different Creative Feed templates for desktop and mobile screens. While choosing your Creative Feed widget template, switch to the ‘Mobile’ tab and select another template as you want. 

Item hover settings will be turned off

Except for that one, every other setting will all be similar to other widget styles: Instagram Feed, Stories Feed and TikTok Feed.

The new ‘Shoppable settings’ is here!

Since the shoppable feature is one of the key elements of any widget, we’ve decided to pull out all the shopping functions separately in the ‘Shoppable settings’ tab. 

In here, you can easily edit settings for:

  • Show icon cart item: Display a little icon cart in photos that have tagged products. This function is now available for Instagram feed widget and TikTok widget.
  • Hotspot color/ hover color: Pick any color for the little dots where your product tags show up, also color and opacity for your tags too!

  • Hotspot link: Choose where you want to open your product tags, same tab or another new tab.
  • Display product item: Choose a vertical or horizontal view for your product detail box.
  • CTA buttons: We’ve enabled you to customize your one-of-a-kind button ever by editing content, button color and button text color. How pretty!

Popup settings optimization

Besides the amazing shoppable settings, we’ve bringing new functions to your popup settings:

  • Enable “View on Instagram”: Make it easier for customers to click through your Instagram post.
  • Also, you can choose to open that post in the same tab or a new tab.

Compatible with Shopify Online Store 2.0 theme 

Since Shopify is soon to release the Online Store 2.0 Theme, we’ve worked hard to guarantee that all your widgets will be compatible and run smoothly no matter what. If there are any issues, please let us know via Live-chat or email our Customer Support team at any time.
