It’s like having your own virtual shop where you can talk about your products, answer questions from customers in real time, and create an engaging experience.

So, instead of customers just scrolling through pictures, they can join a live event where you demonstrate your products, share stories, and make the shopping experience more interactive.

In simpler terms, Videeo provides you with a turnkey solution to turn your online store into a live, interactive shopping destination where you can connect with your customers in a more personal and dynamic way.

Videeo Review – User Interface & Onboarding 

Videeo boasts an interface that is both easy to use and highly functional. The dashboard is provided within your Shopify admin, allowing you to navigate effortlessly through the app’s features.

Whether you are a seasoned Shopify merchant or new to the platform, Videeo’s user interface is crafted to be user-friendly, ensuring that you can focus on your live selling strategy rather than grappling with a complex interface.

Once you install the app in your Shopify store, you will be walked through 3 steps for adding a live player in the store and establishing a connection between the store and the app for product catalog synchronization – all will be done without any technical hassle.

Further, you will also get a test live checklist to ensure Videeo is configured properly before going live to the public.

Overall, Videeo excels in providing a smooth and informative experience for new users. From connecting your Shopify store to setting up your first live show, Videeo’s onboarding process is designed to guide you effortlessly toward live selling success.

Videeo Review – Key Features

In this section, we will break down key features and functionalities of the Videeo app to help you determine if it has everything you need for live selling. 

If you are ready, let’s get started.

1. Live Shows

With Videeo, your products come to life through captivating live shows. This feature goes beyond static images, allowing customers to see your offerings in action, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding before purchasing.

It’s the virtual storefront that brings the dynamism of in-person shopping to the digital realm. And, the best part is that going live with Videeo is easier than hosting a webinar – you just have to add a live title, description, select product collections, choose your broadcasting channels, and go live within a minute.

What I love the most about this feature is that you don’t need a separate application to host your show. You can just scan a QR code or copy the Broadcast link to go live from any device with a camera and mic.

2. Multichannel Streaming

Why limit your audience to just your Shopify store? Videeo allows you to simultaneously broadcast live shows on Facebook, Instagram, and mobile app. YouTube and TikTok are missing, but from their blog posts, it seems that sooner or later you will be able to connect these platforms too.

This multichannel streaming approach broadens your reach, attracting a diverse audience and maximizing the impact of your live selling strategy. Moreover, as I said earlier, you don’t have to do any technical setup to enable this – just connect your Facebook/Meta account and select your Instagram page, Facebook page, and groups where you want to host live shows.

And, for the website, Videeo automatically creates a Live Shopping page where customers can watch the show and interact with you. You can access the page at this URL – https://example.com/pages/live-shopping; replace “example.com” with your store domain.

I highly recommend adding this page to your store navigation bar to make it easier for visitors to find your live show. You can even enable a mini-player to play the live show in the bottom-right corner of the site and app.

3. Product Spotlight

During live shows, Videeo lets you highlight specific products in the dynamic overlay, with product names, available variants, and the product price. Shoppers can click on the product to view and add them to the cart.

You can select the product collection while setting up the live show, or surprise shoppers with unscheduled products by searching or scanning barcodes in real-time. 

This feature enables you to leverage the sense of FOMO and excitement of live events to encourage viewers to make impulse purchases. So, make sure you have some surprises ready to maximize your sales potential

4. Seamless Shopping Experience

Videeo seamlessly integrates with your Shopify store, streamlining the live selling process. This means your existing product catalog, inventory, and checkout system are at your fingertips during live shows.

Videeo Shopping Experience

The result? A cohesive and efficient online shopping experience that keeps your customers focused on what matters – placing orders for your products.

And, shoppers who watch your live shows on social sites can comment directly on your live streams to add products to the cart and buy products instantly. 

5. Guest & Celebrity Takeovers

A live show without guests can be monotonous and boring, right? With Videeo, you can invite guests and celebrities to co-host the show or take over to run the show from anywhere in the world.

Videeo Guest Invitation

You just have to share your invitation link to invite anyone to join the show or share the broadcast link, allowing them to host the show themselves from the comfort of their studio, home, or anywhere – no additional installation or setup required.

Using this feature, you can collaborate with content creators or influencers to host their own shows on your website and sell products from your catalog. This not only allows you to attract new customers but also keeps the existing ones engaged to shop more.

6. Real-time Interaction

The live chat feature in Videeo facilitates real-time interaction between you and your customers. And, every comment from all sales channels appears on one screen, so you never miss any questions, and receive immediate responses from viewers.

This two-way communication not only enhances customer engagement but also creates a personalized and memorable shopping experience that results in increased conversions from a viewer to paid customers.

7. Shoppable Replays

Live shows are great but not every customer might be available to watch the show. So, why confine it to a one-time show? 

With Videeo’s replay functionality, you can save and share recorded live sessions to give those who missed the live broadcast a chance to catch up and shop.

Videeo Replays

This feature extends the lifespan of your live shows and allows you to use it for continuous promotion and marketing to drive sales. Moreover, it automatically lists all your saved live shows on the live shopping page, allowing Shoppers to watch anytime they want.

Videeo Review – Insights & Analytics

In eCommerce, you can’t succeed without analyzing and measuring the impact of your marketing activities on your sales and overall business revenue.

In the case of live selling, you also need to understand how your audience is engaging with your live shows, replays, and conversions from the live sales page. Videeo provides you with detailed insights into your viewer engagement and sales attributions for every product featured during the show.

Armed with this data, you can make informed decisions about your future live shows, product offerings, and overall marketing strategy.
