Showmybuy CTO and Co-founder Niclas at the Online Marketing & E-handel 2013

Filed under E-commerce, Showmybuy | No Comments

Last week Showmybuy was at the Online Marketing & E-handel Summit 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden. Niclas Lindberg, CTO and Co-founder, was invited to the seminar to share his views on social e-commerce. Niclas held a well-visited and very appreciated talk on how social shopping works and how both webshops and their customers can benefit. Niclas backed up his thoughts with some very real growth numbers (up to 30 %) for webshops that use social shopping right. The session ended with a short but lively and fulfilling Q&A. All in and all it was a great experience and we hope that everyone had a good time and that we sparked some innovative ideas. Thanks to the Online Marketing & E-handel Summit for having us!

Have a look at Niclas’ presentation on Slideshare.

Webshop providers’ choice: innovation or starvation?

Filed under E-commerce | No Comments

What can webshop providers do to fight their way up the e-commerce business value chain? The business of hosting webshops have become one of fierce price competition, where decisions are based mostly on price, and webshop providers are left with a fragment of their true earning potential. Niclas Lindberg analyzes the situation in this article, and gives some valuable advice.

Twitter boosts online sales

Filed under E-commerce, Showmybuy | No Comments

We love twitter, and we all have our personal user patterns – we keep up with what’s happening, we get the latest news and of course we discuss, network and socialize. Twitter is also an excellent way to promote your business and have a relation with your customers. But did you know that Twitter is great for boosting online sales? A new study, made by research firm Compete over 75 days with retail sites such as Walmart, Apple and Amazon shows that Twitter is indeed a very good way to increase your sales.

Not only are Twitter users in general 33% more likely to shop online than overall Internet viewers, they also respond really well to retail tweets. Twitter users who saw either an organic or paid retail tweet purchased online at a 39 percent clip, beating the 27 percent of overall Internet users who bought something, according to the study.

We kind of knew this already, as we see really good results from consumers using Twitter to show their buy, but it’s nice to see a larger study confirming it. Go have a look at the article here.

Customers say: “Better than advertising!”

Filed under news, Showmybuy | No Comments

Wow! Swedish media and marketing daily Dagens Media ran a good article yesterday on current trends in social media, marketing and social shopping. They pinpoint word-of-mouth marketing in social media as the next big thing. 4 out of 5 (!) people in the article would consider showing what they bought to their friends in social media. They’re also kind enough to name us as new up-and-comers…

The article is only in Dagens Media’s paper version so far, but you can read it here.

Filed under Important news, Showmybuy | No Comments

We’ve been telling you all along just how easy it is to show your buy. (it really is) And how easy it is to offer Showmybuy to your customers.
