TalkShopLive to Power Best Buy’s Holiday Livestream Shopping Series


The livestream events will broadcast on Best Buy’s TalkShopLive channel and will be hosted by Best Buy’s Virtual Sales Experts who help customers every day through video, audio, and chat.

Live commerce platform TalkShopLive announced that it will power a series of live shopping shows for Best Buy just in time for the holidays. The three-part holiday shopping series kicks off tonight with a live show highlighting the best beauty and wellness tech products, live from the Best Buy Studios. 

The livestream events will broadcast on Best Buy’s TalkShopLive channel and will be hosted by Best Buy’s Virtual Sales Experts who help customers every day through video, audio, and chat. 

Each show will feature tech from some of Best Buy’s newest categories like beauty and wellness, e-transportation, outdoor living, pet tech and even a few not-so-techy things like LEGO and more. Additionally, during each show, viewers will see some limited-time deals and one lucky viewer will have a chance to win a $200 Best Buy gift card to make their holiday shopping even easier.

“Electronics are one of TalkShopLive’s fastest-growing verticals and we are thrilled to partner with Best Buy for a series of live shopping shows this holiday season,” said TalkShopLive CEO and Co-Founder Bryan Moore. “When it comes to electronics and tech gadgets, customers want to see products in action, ask questions in real time, and get great deals and Best Buy is doing ALL of this. With Best Buy’s exceptional assortment of technology, their incredible Virtual Sales Experts, and TalkShopLive’s friction-free live shopping technology, we are excited to offer a unique experience that blends both expertise and entertainment to provide customers with the best holiday shopping experience – and all from the comforts of their own homes.”

“This is the time of year we get to help shoppers create magical moments and stand out with the perfect gift, and we’re excited to bring that to life in another fun way this holiday with live shopping,” said Jennie Weber, Chief Marketing Officer at Best Buy. “As more shoppers seek out live online shopping experiences, we’re excited to be there for them this season in ways no one else can be—with great deals, the best assortment of technology and our unmatched expertise.”

Recently recognized by Fast Company magazine as one of the world’s Most Innovative Companies, TalkShopLive continues to be the leading live commerce solution which attracts top celebrities, publishers and brands who are relying on the platform for its frictionless buying experience. The proprietary multi-embed point of sale technology allows video content to remain shoppable wherever the content is shared. Retailers are harnessing the power of TalkShopLive’s shoppable content by simultaneously sharing livestreams on their domains and social platforms, alongside publishers and suppliers to create multiple storefronts through our TSL Content Distribution Network. 

TalkShopLive recently launched a new studio app called TalkShopLive Studio. The app gives creators, entrepreneurs, brands, retailers, and publishers the ability to host live shopping shows from their mobile devices in HD. 

The app features a fully built-in broadcast studio that enables sellers to have a producer manage up to four participants simultaneously during a live show. Sellers can highlight different products within the live shows, mirroring the same award-winning technology of the desktop platform. 

Sellers using the new TalkShopLive Studio app can create shows and manage products, seamlessly connect to their existing Shopify store, and view their show metrics whenever they choose. Additionally, sellers can connect the TalkShopLive Studio app to their Facebook accounts to simulcast their show using TalkShopLive’s “Shoppable Simulcast” technology.

The startup has powered shoppable livestreams for retail giants Walmart, Target and Best Buy, publishing innovators Mashable, IGN, Conde Nast, Hearst, and superstar talent and creators like Oprah, Jennifer Lopez, Dolly Parton, Bobby Flay, Paris Hilton, Kevin Hart, and Meredith Duxbury to sell books, music, makeup, housewares and more.
