We are delighted to have won the award for ‘Best Use of Facebook for Social Commerce’ in The Social Commerce Awards 2014. We pride ourselves in being one of the first solutions to provide our clients the ability to seamlessly integrate their ticketshop into their Facebook page and use this social network as a sales channel, so it’s a great honour that we’ve been recognised for this.
This was the inaugural year for the Social Commerce Awards, which set out to acknowledge the highly innovative developments that happen in the social commerce space. The awards saw a number of high-quality entries from around the world including Sears, MiH Jeans, Brewdog, Co-operative Electrical, and of course, ticketscript.
The judging panel comprised of experts from leading retailers such as Tesco and Argos, as well as commerce leaders from Accenture, Internet Retailing and WPP.
Gideon Lask, CEO and founder of Buyapowa – the award organisers – said: “The Social Commerce Awards are a celebration of this emergent discipline, and a testament to some of the most creative and engaging campaigns in the field. The overwhelming number of entries we received – and the remarkable calibre of the winners – proves that social is no longer just an offshoot of marketing, it’s a vital and rapidly-growing channel for sales, customer acquisition and data gathering. Just as eCommerce proved that the internet could be used to sell, rather than merely to market products, the incredible work we’ve seen proves that social is opening up an exciting new frontier for business.”
