Mobile Workshop Keynote: How an App Played a Crucial Role in Engaging Shoppers with a Brand
|Paulson’s keynote will provide an informative overview to attendees, describing the process and experience when Free People launched its fully shoppable iOS mobile app in 2013 with WebLinc eCommerce. Woven into the app is FP Me, a social network that allows customers to share inspiration and styling photos, view an Instagram-like gallery of other photos, and interact in numerous capacities. Paulson will kick off a full day of mobile content by discussing the role of an app in launching a social engagement program, as well as the effects of the FP Me program on the brand and its customers.|

“We are very proud of our work with Free People,” said Darren Hill, CEO and co-founder of WebLinc. “The FP Me social mobile app continues to deliver results for the brand – hundreds of thousands of app downloads and millions of instances of quality customer engagement – and clearly demonstrates our ability to introduce cutting-edge commerce technology to the fastest growing retail brands.”
