ShopIgniter Introduces Facebook Store for the Holidays Program

Program Helps Retailers and Brands Activate Their Facebook Networks and Go Live by Black Friday

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  ShopIgniter, a provider of innovative social eCommerce solutions, today announced its "Facebook Store for the Holidays" program to help companies leverage their social networks to generate more revenue. Combining social eCommerce technology and fast track implementation, the program enables qualifying companies to go live with a Facebook store and social promotional tools just in time for the holiday season.

According to Nielson Company (April 2009), 90 percent of people trust recommendations of friends above and beyond any form of advertising. "We know a high percentage of companies recognize the value of having a Facebook presence," said Matt Compton, CEO of ShopIgniter. "However, they also want to see a direct impact on sales from their fan bases. We designed this quick start program so they can begin to generate revenue in the upcoming holiday season."

Unlike stand-alone carts, catalog displays or widgets for Facebook, ShopIgniter's solution enables retailers to control products, pricing, options, categories, collections, brands, and more in a fully-branded Facebook application and back end store management console. Social promotional tools enable companies to create, control, and promote shareable, trackable coupons and promotional sales socially, inside of Facebook and Twitter. Shoppers can incentivize their friends with offers specifically tailored to them from the ShopIgniter Facebook store.

Pricing and Availability
ShopIgniter's Facebook for the holidays program is available now for qualifying companies and is priced on a subscription basis, starting as low as a few hundred dollars a month. For more information, visit: http://shopigniter.com/products/facebook-store.
