We look into how companies in both Retail and E-Commerce brands in the U.S are handling the demand in the build-up towards Black Friday.
Engage NYC 2013 was our biggest social media event of the year. We got to hear from leading brands and agencies in social care, and learned their stories and insights on creating some of the world’s best digital content and service. There were so many excellent presentations we couldn’t possibly pick a favorite, but here are two highlights we’d like to share. Look out for more Engage highlights coming soon!
Black Friday is the day that one third of all Americans go shopping – with an estimated $11.4 billion spent on that day alone in 2012 in the retail sector. When combined with Cyber Monday, it’s claimed by Deloitte that 47% of us will be shopping online during this time.

Using YouTube to reach your Fan’s can be a tricky proposition. Done right, and you can create something that your audience will remember for a long time after, and will want to share with their friends. Videos have the potential to really go viral. But how long should a video be? Make it too long, and people will be yawning and looking for something more interesting to occupy their time. Make it too short, and you might risk your content being easily forgettable and your message undelivered.
Last Thursday, we hosted the international conference on social media marketing in New York City. Engage NYC 2013 brought speakers and attendees from all corners of the world. Industry innovators shared their experiences, including successes and mistakes they learned while growing their engagement with their fans and customers.
