From Trends to Strategies: The Role of Social Commerce Unveiled in Snapchat and Shoplazza White Paper

BEIJING, Dec. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The global eCommerce SaaS provider Shoplazza published an in-depth white paper “From Trends to Strategies: The Role of Social Commerce” with Snapchat. The white paper provides key insights and practices for global merchants to connect with consumers and unlock business opportunities by adopting social commerce strategies and solutions.

Facing the era of “acquaintance network,” social commerce has emerged as the key factor in the cross-border eCommerce industry. Social commerce has become the new norm for brands to win over customer interest and loyalty. It is crucial to establish a presence on social platforms and engage with consumers as social media is the new place of “word-of-the-mouth,” where people go for both product reviews and details more accessible nowadays.

“In recent years, the shopping experience has evolved rapidly. Social commerce is one example illustrating how shoppers adopted online shopping. Social platforms provide an open space for consumers to exchange their opinions and recommendations,” Alyson Zhang, Chief Operating Officer of Shoplazza, says. “Since the COVID-19 restrictions have been loosened, merchants should continue to adopt social commerce strategies to provide a seamless shopping experience for consumers. Utilizing social commerce can present enormous value to merchants, such as brand engagement, increase in traffic, conversion rate, and sales revenue.”

The whitepaper outlays why social commerce is the new norm for online shopping and how to win the hearts of consumers with social commerce strategies. As the purchase journey is no longer linear and consumers demand more convenience, merchants should understand and embed what consumers want in the digital era we live in. Given the dynamic nature of the eCommerce industry, paid campaigns are insufficient to capture consumers on social media. Instead, merchants must consider how they can fully utilize their social channels. In the White Paper, Shoplazza outlines the key practices in social commerce strategy, such as setting up online storefronts, synchronizing product catalogs on social platforms, offering virtual try-on features through AR technology, and encouraging user-generated content (UGCs).
