In-Store Social Media Drives Interaction with Tangible Experiences

While there is certainly no shortage of rewards programs and curated shopping programs for fashion lovers online, these in-store social media experiences use elements in the physical world to inspire interaction.

Since retail environments are updated almost as quickly as social media and technology, temporary installations, booths and stations are favored by brands that want to call attention to a new product launch, promotion or store opening.

Some of the most inventive examples of in-store social media displays include mirrors from retailer Joe Fresh that encourage shoppers to take and share a selfie as part of a contest, as well as the OnePiece pop-up shop, which gives special discounts to Internet influencers. In addition to having a presence online, consumers are expecting their favorite brands to engage them in conversations on social media in-store.
