Marc Jacobs Pop-Up Shop Takes Tweets, Instagrams for Payment

Marc Jacobs Pop-Up Shop Takes Tweets, Instagrams for Payment | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Marc Jacobs will open the doors to his Daisy fragrance pop-up store in Manhattan on Friday, but unlike other retail locations, no money will be exchanged.
Matmi's insight:

Is social currency really the same as actual currency? I don't know but if it means I can get some perfume out of it, I'm in! I'm not sure if Marc Jacobs even needs all this extra brand exposure it is sure to get, but it is a great marketing tool nonetheless. If this works I'd love to see more big and small brands trying it out... It'd certainly convince me to get off Amazon and down to the high street! JH
