Social Shopping: The next big thing in ecommerce

From Accenture

A recent study from Accenture’s has tipped social commerce to grow at an astonishing pace in 2022 and beyond.

Put simply, social commerce marks a shift in the way brands and shoppers connect, with social engagements and shopping transactions becoming more and more integrated into a seamless, blended sales funnel, bringing new opportunities for sellers of all sizes to grow their brand and engage more customers by nailing these three principals of social commerce:

  • Content-driven engagement through shoppable posts and ecommerce enabled social media channels.
  • Experience-driven engagement that enable shopping through experiences like livestreaming and VR experiences.
  • Network-driven – leveraging your existing social networks and turning audiences into sales.

It’s easy to use and flexible enough to allow you to start small, optimize and scale your advertising spend based on results, and best of all, the sales you achieve through Amazon Sponsored Products help boost your organic search rankings and visibility on the marketplace.
