Drive Social Commerce Success in 2013 With Web Cube and Facebook

For many top retail brands, 2013 will mark a year of increased investment in social media. Social has emerged in the last five years as a growing driver of eCommerce traffic, and analysts see no signs of slowing. Booz & Co. has found that 27% of shoppers are willing to buy through social media, and forecasts that U.S. social commerce sales will grow 93% per year to reach $14 billion by 2015.

Marketers and analysts agree that Facebook remains the most promising network for social commerce opportunity. According to Gartner, a brand’s most valuable customers are their Facebook fans - compared to a brand’s non-fans, 79% of fans are more likely to purchase and 74% are more likely to recommend a product or brand. Facebook also continues to be a top source of social referral traffic to brand sites, with Facebook shoppers leading Twitter and Pinterest in page views per session and revenue generated per visit. With the recent release of Gifts, Facebook Exchange, and other tools, Facebook continues to build out the platform’s eCommerce and marketing capabilities.

How can today’s most innovative retailers leverage Facebook for social commerce success? Web Cube has incorporated the latest Facebook technology to empower brands with robust social integration and selling tools.
