This is such a new area - many don’t know what’s out there to facilitate social commerce and increase online sales.

MetaLinQ (http://www.metalinq.com) announces a new, free resource for the online retailer community, http://www.SocialCommerceVendors.com, at the Internet Retailer 2011 Conference on June 16, 2011, in San Diego, California. The new site is a first-of-its kind, convenient online database of 118 social commerce solutions from 93 worldwide vendors in 24 different social commerce solution categories such as group-gifting, co-browsing, Facebook stores, incentivized product sharing, gamification, distributed commerce, outfitting, social wish lists, onsite social merchandising or near real-time Q&A.
MetaLinQ CEO Alex Hisen will announce the new directory when he presents an overview of social commerce strategies at IRCE 2011 in the technology theater on Thursday, June 16, 2011, at 12 PM, and at MetaLinQ’s exhibit booth #1654.
“Online retailers need to know what solutions are available, who offers them and who has already implemented them,” says Hisen. “This is such a new area - many don’t know what’s out there to facilitate social commerce and increase online sales. Our directory is the first online list of social commerce solutions in one place, with no requirement for time-consuming online research, searching by keywords or reading industry blogs and publications.”
SocialCommerceVendors.com visitors can search for solutions by several parameters, including product or product type and category. They can see which online retailers are using the solutions and click through to view vendor detail on Crunchbase.
