Why Instagram Social Feed:

Social media is no longer just a marketing channel for brands– It’s the way people communicate, discover products, and shop.

By creating more social web experiences, and bridging the gap between social media and your own digital web presence, you can create a richer and more authentic experience for people on your website.

At Pixlee, we help brands connect social media and the content + stories their customers create, to form more memorable and engaging brand experiences. We specialize in content marketing that leverages user-generated content (UGC), and make it shoppable across in-brand channels such as web, email, mobile, and digital advertising.

Our free Instagram Social Feed is a project we put together to help web owners of all shapes and sizes start using social more effectively across their website, before investing in an enterprise platform like Pixlee.
