Get more out of your captions
Magic Thumb allows you to configure how your caption looks. This is an example of a right-hand-side caption. You can add all sorts of useful stuff here:
- Add social sharing buttons
- Showcase reviews
- Include "add to cart" calls to action
- Display more product information
Giving your visitors an ability to share when they're most likely to do it is a great idea. Social networks generate huge amounts of traffic and they have a very big advantage over search engines - trust. People are more willing to buy something when a friend recommends it to them. Social sharing buttons can be distracting sometimes, but if you place them right next to your full-screen product image - it's a win-win situation.
