Social Media Strategy for Ecommerce – Salon Ecom Montreal 2011

Happening May 18, 2011

This Wednesday will mark the first annual Salon eCom Montreal, and I’m going to be delivering a presentation on Social Media Strategy for Ecommerce. Salon Ecom Montreal is an all day event that explore all aspects of ecommerce strategy and best practices. It will be held at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal on May 18, 2011.

I’ll be co-presenting my session with Thomas Langdale, and we’ll be looking at how different social channels can be used to (1) target qualified users and (2) drive sales online. First, we’ll address how social media can be used for SEO, paying specific attention to how a proper social content strategy can help brands rank on targeted keywords.

Then we’ll go on to explore the best practices of using Facebook for ecommerce, including how to integrate inventory onto Facebook Pages and drive direct sales. Finally, we’ll examine how brands can use Facebook Ads to “hyper target” users, grow their customer base, and collect user-data that they can then put toward optimizing conversions.
