“Social Stores” Take Advantage of Mobile Shopping, Marking a Shift in Consumer Buying for Holiday Season
Nuo Tech, LLC, designers of technology cases for today’s fashionistas and mobile professionals, announced today the company has launched a new social store on Facebook that provides the company with highly-targeted access to tech-savvy customers. Nuo is just one of the thousands of retailers who will be taking advantage of mobile shopping as more than 90 percent of retail companies1 are expected to have a mobile strategy in place for the 2011 holiday retail season.
“This holiday shopping season, Santa will be using an iPad or another mobile device as mobile shopping provides convenience without the crowds and hassle of traditional shopping,” said Nuo Vice President and Founder Ty Rarick, “Nuo expects to increase our sales by 15-20 percent with our new social store, allowing us to target buyers with exclusive custom deals and incentives.”
The new social store will target college students at launch and expand to other targeted segments overtime. Customers gain access to the store by “liking” Nuo on Facebook.
“Retailers that don’t have set mobile and social strategies will get left behind this holiday season,” said Jason Woosley, Vice President of Product Development at Volusion. “Mobile shopping provides an unmet level of convenience and provides retailers with one-on-one relationship-building opportunities that can create customers for life. And with social shopping on the rise, having a presence on Facebook is critical for merchants.”
“My friends and I expect to do all of our shopping online this year as the convenience just can’t be beat,” said Jacqulyn Estrada, nursing student at the University of Texas at Austin. “We are usually studying for exams and it is nice to take a break, buy a gift and cross someone off of my list.”
As an additional online incentive, Nuo will be offering a “Deal of the Day” weekly and free shipping in November and December. The “Deal of the Day” will be an exclusive discount offer of as much as 40 to 60 percent off of retail.
