Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
Shopswell, the online community that helps consumers shop smarter together, today announced the release of a new feature called Shopswell Questions. The company is launching the new functionality at the ShopTalk conference, the tech event for next-gen commerce taking place from May 15-18 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Shopswell is exhibiting at the show and taking meetings with a number of potential strategic partners, and investors in the e-commerce space.
Shopswell Questions lets users get personalized shopping advice directly from their friends and other members of the Shopswell community by simply submitting a question through the website. Designed to help cut through the e-commerce clutter that forces shoppers to navigate endless pages of oft-biased product reviews and paid blog posts just to get information on a product, Shopswell Questions offers specific, authentic feedback on individual shopping questions so shoppers can find the perfect product that fits their individual needs.
“We’re very excited to launch Shopswell Questions in order to help our users share real-life experiences around products with each other, and ShopTalk has turned out to be the perfect event for us to discuss our approach with the rest of the e-commerce community,” said Mark How, co-founder of Shopswell. “We’ve been delighted with the support and value delivered by the Shoptalk team, including help coordinating numerous introductions to venture capital firms via the Funding Founders program.”
Shopswell closed a priced round of seed funding in December, 2015, from investors including WI Harper, New Atlantic Ventures, Crosslink Capital & Artiman Ventures. The company’s founding team is comprised of serially successful founders who have previously built three online communities to over 10 million monthly active users and shepherded multiple companies to successful exits.
Shopswell was created to foster a community where people share real-life experiences around products with each other. Shopswell members delight in sharing their taste through awesome product discoveries, curated lists, product reviews, and answering other people’s specific shopping questions based on their own personal experiences. The company received an initial round of seed funding in December 2015 and has seen consistent growth in 2016, with over 1 million product listings on the platform and 35% month-over-month increase in organic traffic.
