136 Days ago

SCOTTSDALE, AZ --(Marketwired - January 08, 2016) - TrueShip (http://www.trueship.com) -- the leading provider of ecommerce shipping software (ReadyShipper) and automated returns management solutions (ReadyReturns) -- has just released their newest guide. It provides a comprehensive breakdown of what social commerce trends that can be expected as the New Year gets underway.

Each year, the software maker releases January guides that are designed to help online business owners make the most of the first quarter by adjusting their marketing game plan to cater to emerging, profitable trends during the new cycle. In many cases, patterns and paradigm shifts are found that can enable businesses of all sizes to cash in early.

This year is no different, with previous years and the array of ecommerce social media statistics shaping a healthy role in how online businesses attract new customers and market their products and brand.

TrueShip's newest guide borrows from the current statistics and from the well-known and researched social commerce facts that have been studied, as this industry continues to grow at an unprecedented rate.

Experts have estimated that social commerce now represents 7.4% of all ecommerce revenue in the U.S., a number that is expected to peak to 10% in just a few years. By 2018, social commerce is expected to grow from $30 billion per year to $80 billion per year, as it caps its market share of this industry.

TrueShip's newest guide on social commerce trends explains why and how this is happening, and what trends are helping to feed such staggeringly impressive momentum, while also offering candid tips and suggestions as well as predictions and projections that online businesses can use to further their success in 2016.

"It's another year, and the evolution of ecommerce continues at an unprecedented pace, with social commerce being considered a very relevant factor for all online businesses," said Michael Lazar, Director of Online Marketing at TrueShip. "Our newest guide takes a good look at the current statistics, and adds to them with our own projections for the future of social commerce in 2016 and beyond."
