ShopVisible Social Commerce Platform - Three Reasons We're Different
By Lauren Smith

We’re inventing a brand new category of ecommerce. We officially launched the ShopVisible Social Commerce platform in December 2010 and have already released a round of enhancements to what we know is a major contender in the ecommerce market. While there are several social commerce applications and widgets on the market, we believe that we have created the most robust and comprehensive offering available. Want to know what makes our social commerce platform so great?

1. ShopVisible Social Commerce is ShopVisible Ecommerce, Within Facebook.

We didn’t set out to build a “light” version of our highly rated, enterprise level, on-demand ecommerce platform. We set the bar high because we felt our merchants deserve and require the same quality of robust ecommerce features they’re used to seeing in their main sites. We’ve created an enterprise level on-demand ecommerce platform with all the functionality built specifically to drive conversions in Facebook. ShopVisible Social Commerce clients enjoy the same tools for Facebook that multi million dollar companies use on their sites daily.

2. ShopVisible’s Social Commerce Platform Enables Viral Marketing

It’s not enough to simply throw a shopping cart on Facebook. Anyone can do that, and we don’t think that’s enough. We’ve built the functionality and challenge retailers to create shopping experiences that are relevant and unique to Facebook. Our Social Commerce platform allows marketing teams to create promotions, events, and experiences that not only deliver a measurable ROI - but give their customers a reason to shop there by harnessing the environment Facebook’s created. It’s about liking, sharing with friends, and checking in. We’ve enabled exciting features like a virtual check in, creating affiliate fans, and VIP product access that make your messages, ideas, campaigns, and products go viral.

3. ShopVisible Social Commerce Yields Measurable ROI

The way we look at it, throwing a promotion on Facebook is the modern day equivalent to putting a sale flier under the windshield wipers of 1000 cars in a parking lot, crossing your fingers, and hoping for the best. (Albeit Facebook is much easier on the environment). While you might be able to gauge success by how many new customers came in, you wouldn’t be able to tell the how and why or define the who. The ShopVisible Social Commerce platform allows you to answer the “what’s the sweet spot” in marketing. Did more fans respond to a promotion posted at 10AM Tuesday, or do you get better results if you post at 5PM on a Friday? Did people purchase a higher dollar cart with a 10% promotion versus a 20% promotion? What age group, demographic, or geographic area shared your new product announcement the most? Would hosting an in-store event based on that new product launch make sense? The ShopVisible Social Commerce platform delivers a rich analytics suite with over 65 canned reports to give you answers to these questions. If those reports aren’t enough, we give you the tools to create any
ad hoc report needed.

We recognize that Facebook Commerce is a new and exciting category, and in turn, one that scares merchants or retailers who aren’t sure how to get started. That’s why the ShopVisible Social Commerce platform can easily stand alone or integrate with legacy ecommerce and any third party system that you require. Our goal is to empower retailers and marketers to create experiences for their fans in Facebook that engage customers that might never reach their main site.

If you’re interested in learning more about the ShopVisible Social Commerce platform, and how we’re different from the other solutions out there, please fill out our contact form. We would love to speak with you.
