Houzz is a leading platform for home remodeling and design that brings homeowners and home professionals together in a social and visual community. Houzz allows online retailers to participate in a pay-per-click (PPC) program that uses product thumbnail images to put advertisers' products in front of visitors based on the room, style and products they're researching. This program was created to drive sales so there's very little branding or awareness building involved.
ChannelAdvisor customers can now send a single product inventory feed to ChannelAdvisor, and the data is transformed to meet the unique requirements and specifications of Houzz's PPC Advertising Program.
Email Houzz at email@example.com in order to get started with advertising on Houzz.
In ChannelAdvisor, set up your Houzz feed by following these steps:
- Navigate to Digital Marketing > Marketing Management > Feeds.
- Click Add New Feed.
- Either type Houzz in the Search box in the upper right corner of the page, or click Social Commerce.
- Mouse over the Houzz option, and click Add Site . You will then be walked through the Feed setup process. To learn more, review the Shopping and Flex Feeds Getting Started Guide on the SSC.
The pay-per-click program Houzz employs has a sliding cost scale based on volume. There is a $1,000 per month minimum budget cap and a minimum commitment of three months. If you don't reach the monthly limit, you only pay for actual clicks.
Contact Houzz for details on the budget caps and PPC rates.
