New social media links let rug-buyers share the rugs they love
(PRBuzz.com) May 21, 2012 -- Buyers of designer rugs can now share the rugs they like across social media. At Funky Rugs, the addition of a series of social-media buttons lets rug-buyers tell their friends about the designer rugs that have caught their eyes.
Funky Rugs (www.funkyrugs.co.uk) has always led the online rug-buying market. Now it's gone one step further by adding discreet social-media buttons to every design. Clicking the buttons gives buyers a chance to share their finds or to ask friends for opinions before they buy.
"Anything to do with colour and style is ideal for social-media sharing," says Lee Darlington, Marketing Director at Funky Rugs. "Friends tend to have strong opinions, which can help a buyer choose the best designer rug for their house or flat. We already know that our buyers are emailing links to the rugs they like, and talking about their finds on Facebook and Twitter. Now we've made the process simpler and faster."
The new social-media buttons on the Funky Rugs website link to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. There's also an option to email the link to friends. Many visitors will use the buttons simply because they love to share, others will find that they make everyday interior design much easier. They can canvass opinions from friends, make suggestions for rugs that would go well with a friend's decor, or invite others to suggest fabrics and furnishings that would complement their own chosen rug.
For home-makers who lack the confidence to mix and match their own colours and designs, this low-key form of crowdsourcing is a near risk-free route to interior design. For those with a stronger sense of colour and pattern, social-media posting is an opportunity to let the world know that they spotted this season's funkiest rug designs long before anyone else.
