According to WebpageFX, businesses should use CSS for the layout and not tables. They should code with XML or XHTML, and put all the important information on the top of the landing page. ”Mobile website users are usually busy doing something else like waiting in line, walking through town, or spending time out with friends,” reports WebpageFX. “Their main focus is not necessarily your website so information needs to be quick and easy to access.”

By 2015, mobile sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $31 billion (right now they’re at $6.7 billion). Businesses have to get ready and have a solid mobile site, since that’s where many sales will start taking place...

Why Sales on Social Media Will Be Huge By 2015 [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Shopping on social media may not be big right now, but by 2015, it's expected to explode...

A new infographic by has found that “social commerce sales are expected to bring in $30 billion each year by 2015, with half of web sales to occur through social media,” writes Samantha Murphy of Mashable. Currently, one in three small businesses use Facebook, while there are over 42 million fan pages on Facebook. Seventeen percent of those sell products on the pages.

Facebook fans are 79 percent more likely than a non-fan to purchase a product, and 74 percent of fans are more likely to recommend a company or product. The social media site also drives 26 percent of referral traffic to company websites. Right now ”20 percent of shoppers prefer to purchase products via Facebook than the brand’s website”— and that number is expected to climb.

Shopping with Social Intelligence: How it Works [Infographic]

Shopping with Social Intelligence: How it Works [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Here’a a wondrous new infographic from freelance graphic designer Rebecca Nunes summarising how shoppers shop smart with their social intelligence.

Taken from the shopper rather than the seller perspective, the infographic explains how we use our social intelligence – our ability to understand and learn from each other and profit from social situations – to shop smart.

Rebecca took our original post on the social psychology of social shopping that’s been the subject of a number of reports, articles and other infographics and summarised the key points. A useful creative stimulus, we hope, for you when planning how to sell in social media.

Long story short – to sell successfully in social media you’ll need to offer social utility; a social service that helps people find social solutions to problems or solves social problems. Helping people shop smarter with their social intelligence is one way of delivering this value proposition…

Infographic: Kickstarter Dominates Indie Innovation | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Like YouTube, Facebook, or blogging platforms, it’s almost hard to believe there was an Internet without Kickstarter, which may be the greatest testament to its success.

You can find all those facts and many more in this masterful infographic created for Fast Company by Catalogtree...

Infographic that explains the state of social network marketing and statistics which back up the notion of this platform being of major importance to any brand wishing to engage with their consumers.

Samara Paxton's curator insight, September 30, 2014 8:24 PM

Interesting the part about 'How are shoppers using their Smartphones?'- I have done every single one of those things. Also things like customer reviews on social websites- I definately will post on Facebook Business pages if I really like, or dislike a product. It really is important to be able to connect with your customer, especially for things such as products that are below a persons expectations. Social Media makes it so much easier to get it sorted out faster and in the public eye, which shows the brand in a poitive light.
