App uses Facebook Likes and Interests to suggest relevant gifts and enables users to collaborate on gifts from within vendor websites, Facebook fan pages and Pinterest boards.
Count Me In (CMI), a leading provider of technology tools for the retail industry, today announced the launch of a free multi-channel social gifting solution for brands, e-tailers and retailers.
CMI allows vendors to make use of their existing websites, Facebook fan pages and Pinterest boards and turn them into revenue-generating social gifting storefronts, where customers can collaborate on gifts for themselves or others.
Most brands and retailers today have a presence on Facebook and Pinterest. Many have millions of fans or followers. Yet, few monetize the large following that they have. CMI’s entire gift collaboration and registry functionality can be embedded into a vendor’s Facebook fan page or Pinterest board on a branded basis, showcasing only products that are relevant to the vendor, enabling them to capitalize on their built-in visitor traffic.
CMI’s platform allows vendors without registry platforms to enter the game overnight, creating an additional and extremely lucrative revenue stream for themselves.
CMI also makes a web plug-in API available to vendors so they are able to bridge the gap between their web assets and their social commerce endeavors effortlessly. Once a vendor has added the web plug-in button to their existing website, every item on their site becomes part of their social gifting catalog and available to consumers for collaborative gifting or registries.
Implementation of CMI’s solutions require no out-of-pocket capital investment and little use of their existing resources. Once completed, the inventory management systems already running in the background are ready to support purchases on an ongoing basis.
“CMI has developed a full suite of products that allow retailers to tap into the most up-to-date social media tools and capitalize on a new and lucrative retail channel,” said Jeff Saul co-founder of Count Me In. “Whether you are a sole proprietor dabbling in your first e-commerce retail experience or a multi-national retail chain looking to break through the barriers of social commerce, the opportunity to gain insight into your potential customers and engage your otherwise inactive audience on Facebook and Pinterest just got a lot easier.”
CountMeIn App will officially launch for the consumer market in 4th quarter of 2012.
