ROI Guided Social Design Solutions

The Problem

Consumers have changed how they buy.

Shoppers today are overwhelmed by choice. And advertising doesn't help them decide - 75% of shoppers don't trust advertising (Yankelovich, 2010). Instead, they turn to their friends to provide word of mouth advice and recommendations: 74% rely on social networks to help them make purchase decisions (Gartner, 2010).

Brands and retailers are trying to adapt, but with limited success

Retailers have committed significant resources to "becoming social". 86% of US online retailers have Facebook fan pages (GOOD Magazine, 2010). Even more - 91% - use Twitter to engage their followers (etailing group, 2011). Despite these efforts, 62% of retailers reported that ROI from social is unclear (Forrester, 2011). This is because social marketing solutions have focused on "soft" results like acquiring fans or followers, neither of which is proven to drive sales.


Our Solution

With a laser focus on "hard ROI", our solution resides directly on the ecommerce site (rather than on Facebook), where the vast majority of consumers go when they are ready to shop and buy. We've shown that traffic generated from our applications converts up to 300% better than traffic from Facebook fan pages, and 50% - 70% better than traditional online marketing.  

Our solution consists of three parts:

  1. A suite of social applications that forms the core of the Sociable Labs offering
  2. A flexible platform that includes analytics, AB testing, and the ability to experiment with numerous application parameters
  3. A team of seasoned social experts that takes a collaborative and consultative approach to solving your specific problem
