Social Commerce: Products Find Us: iPhones to Underoos

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

If Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world. 2008-2010 showed us that Social Media is huge and here to stay.

What 2011-2013 will show us is that the value developed and shared within social media efficiently influences our purchase decisions [social commerce]. We will no longer search for products and services, rather they will find us via social media. This new world is one in which consumers win and companies that produce great products of value excel.

Join social media specialists Brian Solis (Author of Engage) and Erik Qualman (Author of Socialnomics) as they discuss:

+ Current Social Commerce Trends & Technology

+ Case Studies: The good, the bad, the ugly

+ Review how can companies capitalize today and 2-3 years from now

Notes: Per SXSW request of having more duo presentations this year, we feel this is a dynamic duo (well rated past SXSW speakers) discussing a new and very important technical topic.

LEVEL: Advanced
