Module 5 - Data Structures
Recognizing the vital role that social networking plays in driving sales, this assignment focuses on building a cohesive online presence for your e-commerce brand across four major social networking platforms. You will create and optimize profiles on Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, ensuring that they align with your website’s branding and help drive traffic back to your main site.
To begin, create a new Gmail account for your company (e.g., “firstname.lastname@example.org”), which you will use to sign up for the social networking platforms. Once you have established accounts on Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, focus on branding each profile with a consistent look and feel that reflects your website’s design.
Next, populate your social media profiles with the content you developed in Project 2, ensuring that you tailor each piece to suit the specific platform. For the YouTube channel, transform at least two of your content pieces (one of which must be your MVP) into engaging videos.
Finally, incorporate social networking icons on your website and link them to your newly created social media profiles. This will facilitate seamless navigation for your visitors and further solidify your brand’s online presence across multiple platforms. By completing this project, you will have effectively harnessed the power of social networking to boost your e-commerce brand’s visibility and reach.
