Keep makes Instagram shoppable, letting consumers find — and purchase — the items posted by top trendsetters
September 13, 2013 (New York, NY) — The Keep community of shopping enthusiasts scours the web to bring the best-of-the-best to Keep, making a consumer-curated product selection available for Keep shoppers. Now, the fashion industry's showcase for trends – Instagram – is made shoppable on Keep as well.
"We started Keep to give consumers a web-wide product discovery platform, curated by the people, not merchants or manufacturers," said MaryAnn Bekkedahl, President of Keep. "And it turns out the most fashionable people – fashion media, influencers, celebs – are curating their favorite products on Instagram, where no one can do anything but drool. I saw people's frustration that on the closed Instagram platform, they can't tell where the products are from or of course, link out to buy. And I thought, 'Hey — Keep can do all that! We can make Instagram shoppable for everybody!' So we have."
