Social media’s influence on our lives and businesses will continue to grow exponentially in 2012.

And that means whether or not you choose to embrace it, as well as how you use it, will continue to affect your bottom line. As social media began to gain more and more traction over the last decade, it emerged as a credible avenue for retailers to attract followers, as well as share deals with consumers.

However, as the medium continues to evolve, “making social central to the shopping experience is still a largely untapped way to drive sales and increase margins,” according to Mashable.com’s seven social media predictions for 2012.

The social media news blog believes more businesses will set up shop within the walls of Facebook, personalize their e-commerce sites based on a consumer’s Facebook and Twitter taste graph, and increase participation in second-tier social networks like Tumblr and Pinterest where users organically share their purchases and wish lists.

Have you been able to successfully attract followers to your social media platforms, and how do you plan to evolve this year?

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
