  • Lisa Hausman from Gigya said that tapping into the social graph will be a key competitive advantage for retailers in 2011. eMarketer showed us some data released just this month that said friends and “people like you” influence social media users’ purchasing decisions more than anyone else. eMarketer also showed us that retailers using collaborative shopping tools show increased conversion rates, higher average order value, and decreased returns.So what does all of this mean? It means that is more important than ever to leverage the tools available to you and enable your shoppers to have a seamless, personalized and collaborative shopping experience.

  • While there are many social networking platforms such as myspace and twitter. The core focus of any social commerce strategy should be placed on Facebook.Facebook, as everyone knows, is growing very rapidly. {CLICK} There are nearly 700 million members, and those users are spending roughly 500 billion minutes a month on the site.{CLICK} This means on average users are spending about 23 hrs per month in the site while being connected to well over 60 pages or groups.As this graph illustrates, retail titans such as walmart and amazon are seeing their traffic reach flat line somewhat; Conversely, as you can see, Facebook is continuing it’s traffic grow an impressive rate. {CLICK} As a result, Facebook is overtaking Google in terms of overall traffic to the site.
  • [DU NGUYEN]Why is social commerce in Facebook so powerful? {CLICK} Well, according to eMarketer, nearly 70% of social network users share recommendations with friends within every few months.{CLICK} So for example say if you had 100k fans each having on average 130 friends, {CLICK} that means that you can potentially reach 13 million people that can be influenced by your social commerce strategy. {CLICK} Now if you take another degree of separation, meaning friends of friends, your reach is nearly everyone in Facebook.So the power of social commerce lies in the ability to turn a small number of fans into an army of advocates and influencers and ultimately purchasers.
