ShopSocially, and hundreds of other leading solutions, are available to all OrderDynamics Clients to leverage through seamless and easy implementation.
ShopSocially uses pre- and post-purchase incentivized sharing to stimulate social media exposure and build customer databases. The social media tool allows online shoppers to either share a brand on Facebook prior to a purchase, or share just-purchased items for entry into contests, or to receive discounts on future purchases, helping brands drive web traffic, increase revenue and optimize exposure.
With ShopSocially, Walking on a Cloud ran several campaigns, including unique Canada Day and Independence Day promotions highlighted through their weekly email newsletter offering 20% off all products for the day. Walking on a Cloud’s impressive results included:
- Growing their social media fanbase by more than 70% in under two weeks

Having the pre-built integration into the OrderDynamics platform made turning on ShopSocially fast and extremely seamless. We need this kind of flexibility to keep pace with our evolving customers,” he added.
