  • Notion that three distinct trendsSocialMobile – sig data on disparate new platforms, keeping a customer always onBig Data problem to help craft better recommendations Taking social signals and marrying with purchase, web data, and creating a better recommendation set. Because we’re getting external dataNot just about Christian commented on something, but that you’ve encouraged comments and then leveraged that on site to drive salesSo much effort is spent on generating social content, or Earned MediaSocial marketing teams build out Facebook fan pages and try to generate buzz on Twitter. But the focus has been on Awareness -- getting people to like or share your contentSocial traffic as a source of acquisition not the highest quality: there's not much of it, and there's little ROI.Just as word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising in the offline world, we think it makes complete sense on your retail site as well.At LEAP, we use social signals to power our recommendations, but we also use social content to provide a humanizing element and assurance that the customer is selecting the right product. That is, earned media is finally brought lower down the purchase funnel: from awareness and consideration, to a personalized experience that directly affects engagement and conversion.And we deliver across all platforms – be it website, tablet, or mobileThereby driving increased customer LTV
