Report: The state of social commerce and fulfillment

The advertising and e-commerce landscape for brands is at a tipping point. Data privacy protections have made it more challenging to track shoppers online, reducing the effectiveness of traditional advertising models. As the cost of advertising on social platforms increases, brands are prioritizing social commerce to better engage customers and drive loyalty online. 

Social commerce allows retailers to offer customers a direct path to purchase. Brands can reach customers on apps they use daily — such as TikTok and Instagram — and offer them shoppable content and experiences with the goal of allowing them to purchase products directly from the app and have them delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible. A successful social commerce strategy also requires a technology-powered fulfillment program that can support seamless transactions and meet customer expectations.
