This past Thursday my presentation in the Baker Showroom at High Point Market for the Unity In Design Event was about Social Media and highlighted one of my favorite tools as a designer, “Olioboard”. I can’t say enough about this website. If you dont’ have an Olioboard Account you should get one immediately. Why, you asked? Because it is sooo much easier than photoshop and does the same thing, but is also a social media platform. Once you create on Olioboard you are also connected to social media sharing. So what does Oliboard do? 2d and 3d mood boards can be created , shared and shopped on Olioboard.
Olioboard currently has 43 e-commerce partners. Did you know that you too can become an online affiliate with Olioboard if you currently have an online shop for only $250.00 per month? Think of the exposure your business would get!
When You sign up for an account you can add a picture of yourself, your location, your services, and links to all your social media platforms…
By filling out profile information you increase your chances of being found by people who are searching online for designers to collaborate with. Once they discover your boards they will be linked back to your website and interact with you. You can also put your email address on your boards they can click through and contact you.
Olioboard has over 103,000 members and growing my 4,000 members a month. That translates to 1.25 million page views a month. That can add up to a lot of eyes on your business.
For only 8.99 a month, you can become a pro member which gives you all kinds of extra benefits to create more professional looking boards such as access to Benjamin Moore Paint Samples, text to use on your mood and greater exposure in the Olioboard community.
My favorite feature of the Pro membership is the ability to create a budget from your boards. This is so helpful when working with clients. You can pull items of different prices to compare when you are trying to convince a client of the quality of the products you have specified. You also have the ability to print out a shopping list for yourself or your clients.
