What do you do if you want to attract overseas consumers who don’t speak your language? How do you help them communicate with you and describe what they’re looking for?

During Shop.org’s Retail’s Digital Summit we caught up with Steve Lovell, Chief Revenue Officer of Slyce, a fast-growing visual search company, to find out.

Here we discuss how visual search helps customers learn where to buy your products online just by snapping a photo of something they like as they conduct their everyday lives. Watch below!
