We Are Living in a Social World

Thanks to Josh Wardini for authoring this section of today’s post.

These things are still important marketing tools but only when used as a part of social commerce strategy.

Today’s consumers want more out of businesses than just the best prices. They want to engage with a brand and know that they are valued by that brand. Social commerce is a fairly new concept but one that you really have to get right. It’s about having a defined presence on social media, but it encompasses a lot more than that as well. Social commerce makes it as easy as possible for your clients to buy from you – more and more brands are incorporating sales apps into their social media pages.

It’s also about using client data to examine exactly what your clients want and what they might need in future. In essence, it’s about knowing what they want before they do. And, if you get it right, it’s about skyrocketing your sales because you can meet their needs at exactly the right time.
