Giantnerd: Driving Social ROI for Ecommerce
Community Powered Ecommerce
Plenty of attention has been paid to social commerce in the last few years. And while some retailers have sat on the sidelines as social and ecommerce converge, others have committed to making their sites social – and are seeing astounding results. Enter Giantnerd. The cutting-edge outdoor and apparel retailer is social from the ground up, encouraging users to interact with and help each other make educated purchasing decisions. From its launch, Giantnerd was designed to empower shoppers to make smart shopping choices and find products that fit their needs.
When it came to ensuring site visitors had a uniquely social shopping experience, Giantnerd turned to Gigya. Giantnerd believed that social elements would improve the user experience and increase both shopping conversions and overall engagement. With those expectations in place, the Gigya team got to work implementing a variety of social plugins to give Giantnerd’s website a robust social experience.
