Shop in-store. Shop online. And now shop on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, too! If you want to stay ahead in the shopping game, it pays to follow, “like” and subscribe to the social media profiles of your favorite fashion brands, designers and retailers. And if you’re usually the trend setter in your circle of friends, then getting in on the new media social shopping scene is a definite must-do!
To get a better idea of what I’m talking about, take ShopNBC for example. They’re a pretty big online retailer that sells clothing, jewelry, electronics, even furniture and appliances! Kind of like an online-only Bloomingdales, but more. Due to the power of social media, they have special deals for their online devotees. If you follow the ShopNBC twitter page, you can get daily Top Value tweets. If you “like” ShopNBC, you can actually enter giveaways via their Facebook ‘Promotions’ app. And, surprisingly, if you subscribe to their account, you can even watch ShopNBC on YouTube to get online beauty tips from their specific designers. It’s a bit like their own take on those ever popular beauty gurus – like AndreasChoice or PurseBuzz!
It’s a new year and you need new good habits. Take hold of the shopping advantages technology has given us and follow, “like” and/or subscribe to your favorite shops, boutiques, and designers today!
