Social Media Helps Bargain Hunters Shop, Save and Share

In the coming year, I will have my eye on the evolution of the retail discount. The traditional coupon clip has been transformed by shopping apps and social media. As an admitted bargain hunter, I’m glad to see deal-seeking become posh again. With the growing popularity of online social networks, where consumers “like” and follow brands as readily as they do friends and pop stars (see Media Logic’s 2010 Retail Marketing Report), the buying experience has become truly interactive and is likely to grow even more so.
