Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2012
Honey Agency, a boutique social media design and development agency, announced today a new, complete ‘Social Commerce As a Service’ solution with its partner, eWinery Solutions, a leading global provider of comprehensive business solutions exclusively for the wine industry.
The dynamic and comprehensive new solution provides end-to-end social commerce tools that utilize many of eWinery Solutions’ software tools – ecommerce, CRM, wine club, content management, social media, and marketing – and include a fully integrated and customizable Facebook ecommerce store. eWinery Solutions partnered with Honey Agency because of their extensive experience in creating innovative and cost-effective revenue-generating social media programs for wineries big and small.
Using the eWinery Solutions Social Commerce As a Service offering, wineries will be able to quickly and easily leverage the power of social media by integrating their winery Facebook community activities into a custom-built Facebook store, including ShipCompliant real-time compliance checking for all transactions.
The Facebook Uncorked solution includes:
- Social eCommerce: A fully integrated eWinery store within Facebook.
- Custom Welcome Page: A default page introduces the winery brand and prompts the ‘Like’ icon to grow the winery’s fan base.
- Custom Profile Picture: Breaks the mold of typical profile pictures by utilizing all available real estate and differentiates the winery brand.
- Website Facebook Integration: Winery customers can ‘Like’ a wine on the winery website and auto-post to their Facebook Timeline.
- Add-on Options: The social commerce solution can also include customized recipe apps, contests and sweepstakes, integration with winery blogs, and embedded videos.
“Wineries are still in the very early stages of using social media as a sales channel,” says Honey Agency’s Agency Principal Meghan Phillips. “But Facebook has now really developed as a one-stop platform for businesses and consumers, and there is significant opportunity for wineries to convert Facebook users into consumers.”
Dick Kline, founder and CEO of eWinery Solutions, explained the increasing importance of social commerce as a component of consumer direct sales and marketing. “Just putting a mirror image of a winery website on Facebook is not the right objective,” says Kline. “With the unique social media design concepts of the Honey Agency, we can provide a seamless shopping experience with brand-building potential for winery advocates who are visiting and communicating within the winery’s Facebook page.”
Facebook Uncorked is available exclusively through Honey Agency and eWinery Solutions, with a base price of $1,995, depending on the degree of customization required by the winery.
