Social commerce has already become an effective marketing stream for online retailers, however it's still in its infancy. Revenues for this segment of the industry are predicted to grow exponentially. What is needed to take it to the next level is insight into who is sharing and what type of incentive would encourage him or her to share more.
With increased competition for e-commerce stores, retailers are leveraging social tools to incentivize existing customers to refer their friends - but simply pushing products blindly is a losing battle.
“The relationship with TowerData has been nothing but positive. They’ve made sharing data so streamlined, simple and seamless.”
— Elizabeth Galietto, Email Marketing Manager at The Shubert Company
