Ecommerce News: What was HOT this week!
Welcome to the ecommerce round-up of the week as collated by myself, Gary Farmer, ‘social guy’ at Digital Boutique. This is the first in an ongoing series of weekly round-ups!
Plenty topics of discussion, especially around Instagram which is in the news for various reasons. We also have some info on Black Friday and a bizarre story to finish with. On top of that, we have Tweet of the Week where I scour Twitter and choose what I think is the best Ecommerce-related Tweet of the week. Unfortunately there are no prizes as yet for the chosen tweet. That said, we have shared the latest DB Spotify playlist of the week and a couple of other useful links so I hope you find those valuable. Do enjoy!
