VENTURE BEAT
My love of clothing rarely makes me any money. Quite the opposite in fact. However, a fashion startup called Zindigo has come up with a way to help me indulge my style obsessions in a way that actually adds to my bank account, and its own.

Zindigo announced today that it raised $4 million in angel funding.

Zindigo enables entrepreneurial fashionistas to open boutiques on Facebook and earn 40% of every sale. Users can either open a shop dedicated to an individual designer or a virtual store that carries multiple brands. Zindigo has over 80 apparel and accessories designers on the platform, and it is a compelling option for brands looking for greater exposure and distribution, users that would love to indulge their style obsession in a lucrative way, and consumers that prefer a more curated, intimate shopping experience.

It is also a compelling model for investors drawn to the innovative approach to social commerce. It is not uncommon for online retailers to offer commission to users or affiliate site for referral links, and there are other startups like StyleOwner where people can establish their own digital boutiques. Zindigo, in addition to offering a far greater portion of the sales, also has tracking and analytics tools, as well as perks like free-shipping, to optimize sales efforts.

No time are the desires for unique articles of clothing and extra cash more pronounced than the holiday season. Kareen Mallet, a former executive at luxury department store Neiman Marcus, has joined Zindigo as Fashion Director. In a statement, she emphasized the role Zindigo could play in helping small designers get their work seen.

“I have spent my career watching talented designers struggle through the challenges of building a business and developing their distribution,” said Mallet. “Brands are looking for new customers and consumers are looking for unique brands, but distribution barriers limit the connection.”

The designers also get a cut of the sales, as does Zindigo. Partcipating brands include Be&D, Cluny, Dallin Chase, Geren Ford, Isabella Fiore, Jay Godfrey, Kara Ross, M.C.L., Nicole Romano, NoNoo, Phoebe Couture, Raoul, Orlando Santana, and Ruffian.

Zindigo is based in New York.

MASHABLE
Over the past year, a number of startups and established retailers have sought to monetize online influence, giving users sales commissions on products they link to on their blogs, social media accounts and in their own, dedicated online shops.

The cut that users receive for those sales is generally modest. The Fancy offers users a 2% commission of sales made by linking to product pages on its site. Amazon offers affiliates between 4% and 8% depending on product category. StyleOwner, a startup that encourages users to sell goods through their own online fashion boutiques, offers a 10% cut of sales made on behalf of its partners, which include big-name retailers like Saks and Nordstrom.

Two fashion industry veterans — Michael Bereck, a former wholesale distributor and founder of early fashion ecommerce play fashion500.com, and Kareen Mallet, previously a fashion director at Neiman Marcus for 17 years — think individuals should be given a far bigger cut, to the tune of 40% of every sale. The pair have raised $4 million in funding to found Zindigo, a direct-selling platform that will operate on Facebook.

Here's how it works: Consumers open their own shops as business pages on Facebook. They can stock their shops with wares from more than 80 apparel and accessories designers, including Kara Ross, Erickson Beamon and Isabella Fiore, and they will receive a 40% commission on every sale.

Zindigo has 18 employees divided between New York City and Palm Beach, Fla. The company takes around a 15% cut of every sale. In addition to individually operated storefronts, Zindigo will also have its own Facebook store for partner brands, as well as an ecommerce consultancy for brands.

Zindigo will focus initially on fashion, but plans to expand into travel, hospitality, automotive and entertainment.

I asked Bereck why ecommerce on Facebook has thus far failed to reach its potential. "Taking a website and putting it on Facebook doesn't give a lot of added value, and it doesn't really leverage social," he said. "We're talking to brands with 2,000 followers on their Facebook page. They need a system that helps them get to everyone else, and that's what we're building."

WOMENS WEAR DAILY
NEW YORK — Call it the Facebook backlash.

"The next 12 months are the make or break time for social media, but I do think the investments have been there. People have sizable communities and want to make them ROI [return on investment] positive. We will really see if the metrics prove one way or another," said Maureen Mullen, New York University think tank Luxury Lab, or L2, director of research and advisory.

At this point, observers say, few brands, if any, are seeing significant sales result from their postings on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and other sites. Social media hasn't been about driving transactions; it has been about building brand awareness and a "community" that will be devoted to a brand and, thus, buy it. Social media isn't about sales today; it's about driving sales in five, 10 or 15 years as the Internet-mad generation of twentysomethings matures.

Every leading company with a good to great social media presence is on the requisite platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube with e-commerce, a blog and elaborate editorial content on their own digital flagships. Burberry, Christian Dior, Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton all having fan bases on the platform that surpass 5 million. The more money brands pump in to their social media efforts, though, the greater the pressure for them to begin showing a return on the investment.

There's only one problem: For now, there isn't a universal metric to measure the ROI. That, coupled with Facebook's IPO flop, is starting to give social media a bad rap, Mullen said.

She cited Burberry, which has more than 13 million Facebook "likes," as an example of social media's impact.

"The halo of innovation that they've gotten from investment in social media and all these platforms has almost become a pillar of their brand," said Mullen. "If you look at Burberry 10 years ago, it meant British and plaid, [but] now it means British, plaid and innovation. Largely at the heart of that, in addition to great merchandise and creative, it's been a real commitment to social media and technology that resonates with the younger consumer. On a one-to-one basis attributing fans to ROI, I don't know if it's there, but I think as a great affect on their business, it's been there in spades."

She does see that brands with strong social media communities drive significantly more traffic from Facebook and similar sites to their digital flagships. Again, she points to Burberry, noting that the 1.9 percent of traffic that came to burberry.com from Facebook in 2010 exploded to 29 percent one year later. She expects that a fraction of this traffic is incremental and that the brand wouldn't have gotten it otherwise — unless it paid Google — and this is exactly where the company begins to see the ROI.

She also notes that some brands have opted to invest in Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram in favor of building a robust e-commerce site or search engine marketing. Mullen warns, though, that in the short term, a superior e-commerce business will generate more business for fashion brands than a "mediocre to good social media presence."

"There's definitely been a lack of attribution modeling across the media mix to show what effect it has in terms of driving brand awareness, driving sales in-store, complementing broader media investments, and it's very difficult to measure. But again, if you look at traditional media — print or TV, to an extent — oftentimes that same sort of limited measurement exists. Social media is just held in a higher regard because you can get information quicker and measure clicks through engagement and other metrics," Mullen said.

Facebook's IPO didn't help matters. "The whole IPO thing made people wary. They asked if social media works, if the IPO didn't. It's a vicious cycle," said Jennifer Vlahavas, ComScore Inc. senior director.

She explained that the uniqueness as a marketing channel — one that's metric for measuring success, thus far, has been fan acquisition — is often overlooked by retailers specifically. What Facebook allows, she said, is for companies like Macy's and Wal-Mart to have a true dialogue with their best customers, and, most importantly, provides high-value customers a platform to evangelize a brand.

"But it's so unique that valuation is where the people are confused. The parallel is that because it is so unique, retailers have had a hard time determining the hard metric to measure success," Vlahavas said. "[And if] retailers have a hard time measuring the value of Facebook and the investment they have in Facebook, why is it so shocking that Wall Street and the investor community had a hard time valuing it? I see an analogous relationship between those two things."

In her view, social media is living up to the hype.

Late last year, ComScore profiled the average spend at Target stores across the general population, compared to the average spend from Facebook fans and friends of fans. Research determined that fans of Target on Facebook were 97 percent more likely to spend at Target, and friends of fans were 51 percent more likely than the average population to spend at the retailer (the brand has over 18 million "likes").

"Of course you would accept that fans spend more because they have proactively raised their hand and said 'Yes, I'm a fan of this brand.' It's typically more than the average, but it might be more for some retailers than others," Vlahavas said, pointing out that profiling the habits of friends of friends is "earned media" — an amplification effect that quantifies the "virality" of the medium. "That idea that because of my relationship with you and your relationship with a store, I am more likely to be open to that store's messaging and ultimately buying because my friend is a fan."

A corresponding study from March used a test and control methodology that aimed to quantify incremental purchase behavior that could be attributed to social media exposure. Research showed that fans who were exposed to Target's messaging versus fans who weren't exposed were 19 percent more likely to buy at Target. Friends of fans who were exposed to the retailer's messaging were 27 percent more likely to buy at Target than those not exposed.

"The second numbers prove that consumer exposure to branded media on Facebook drives incremental purchase behavior," Vlahavas said.

Target declined to comment on details on sales metrics relating to its use of social media, but Dustee Jenkins, vice president of public relations, said the store connects to its customers through several online channels to listen to consumer feedback, share enthusiasm and help create the best online and in-store experiences.

Erika Bearman, Oscar de la Renta's social media personality and senior vice president of marketing and communications, has attracted nearly 150,000 followers on Twitter under her OscarPRGirl moniker, but are these fans actually buying anything? Maybe not right now, according to Mullen, but in five to 15 years from now, most definitely.

Oscar de la Renta's chief executive officer Alex Bolen thinks it will happen even sooner.

"I don't think it's that far out. We would hope that through engagement — whether it's through social initiatives or our [Web] site in general — we will develop customers much sooner. Initially, it was all about developing future customers, but how far in the future seems to be getting shorter and shorter," Bolen said.

For oscardelarenta.com, which saw an extensive relaunch last month, referral traffic from social activities and sales are both up by 30 percent in a three-week period. Bolen calls it a "coincidence" that these two numbers are the same — but it's not a coincidence that things are moving in the same direction. He adds that e-commerce sales year to date have more than doubled.

Part of the plan with the relaunch of the site was to make it easier for consumers to buy online, and see if Bearman could drive sales, instituting a feature called "OscarPRGirl's Picks." Until now, she's rarely promoted branded product through the various social media channels.

The brand's social media strategy has always relied on establishing a personal relationship with followers. It's latest endeavor in the space, a blog called George & Ruby that launched last month, is centered around the children's wear collection that launched last spring. The blog is written by Marissa Kraxberger, head of the company's creative team. "It's a demographic that we didn't think made sense for me to speak to," Bearman said, calling George & Ruby a personal account of Kraxberger's life as a working mother of two. "I don't have kids and we didn't think it was realistic for our fans to hear about children's clothing from OscarPRGirl."

The approach is slightly different for contemporary priced brands, though, such as Kate Spade. Rather than using social media in hopes of forming a personal collection that will lead fans to transact, the brand effectively uses Facebook to gather pertinent data about its users so it can specifically market and target to them though e-mail outreach, according to Mullen, who sees this as viable evidence of ROI.

She credited Kate Spade as serving as the best example of an organization that uses social media to power its e-commerce business. All of the brand's Facebook and Twitter activity is a means of capturing data that the company can remarket to consumers to fuel its online business.

Even though there still isn't a metric to measure social media's impact, platforms are popping up aimed at making social commerce. They seek to empower consumers to transact on Facebook, for example, while at the same time making it worthwhile for companies that get involved.

Zindigo Be&D For Zindigo founder Michael Bereck, the most important element is to really hone in on the notion of "direct social selling," which sees a brand's followers on Facebook facilitating in the promotion and selling of product on the medium.

The technology allows users to implement a customized e-commerce experience with any of the more than 80 participating brands on their Facebook pages, with the ability to build a network of ambassadors. Bereck believes Zindigo allows brands to monetize social media with the platform agnostic technology (which upon its launch is only compatible on Facebook, but will roll out to other iterations in the coming months). Bereck even brought on board Kareen Mallet, who was the Neiman Marcus Group's senior women's ready-to-wear director for 17 years, to serve as fashion director. Brands so far using the technology include Erickson Beamon, Be&D, Dallin Chase, Geren Ford, Kara Ross, Jay Godfrey, Ruffian and Isabella Fiore.

The platform allows users to open a brand page and establish a new revenue model. Users are motivated by the commission made from items purchased on their brand pages — which is 40 percent — and all partners maintain administrative access to branded content. Content looks the same on each ambassador's page (which has to be vetted by brands) to ensure individual brand consistency, although users can highlight whichever products they wish.

Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist is a photographer who has built his entire business on the medium, and he has found that various platforms such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram can be a lucrative way to make money for stylists, photographers or other creative talent that might get commissioned to work with a brand. Schuman's blog, which garners close to 15 million page views a month during fashion show seasons (with 12 million in the slowest months of May and June), sees about 1.8 million unique visitors per month.

"How does it pay off? It gets people to see you in a different facet. Most of the time, the designers show one thing and they are very much in control. I feel so much closer to Dolce & Gabbana now because I follow Stefano Gabbana on Twitter," said Schuman. "He's aspirationally cool, but I feel like I know him better. It makes me look at their brand differently and say, 'They aren't so different from me.' I am more likely to consider them [when I make a future purchase] because I relate to them more. How great would it have been if Armani had Twitter in the Eighties?"

To him, exposure on social media platforms is negotiable for any creative, rendering a presence in the space mandatory. If someone has a following, they can charge premiums for tweeting or Instagramming throughout the process of working with a company — something Schuman began to learn at meetings with potential brand partners. "You can ask for 'X' amount on top of your fee," he said.

TECHI
Every business on Facebook is trying to make money. With the growing number of Facebook profiles and the increasing popularity of social media marketing companies to carry the weight of company advertising, a startup company might have just proven that Facebook Shops can work.

Zindigo is a startup company that encourages Facebook users to sell company merchandise to receive a 40% commission; 40% commission!! According to the report on Mashable, consumers open their own shops as business pages on Facebook stocking their shops with merchandise from more than 80 apparel and accessories designers. Merchandise sold will include items from Kara Ross, Erickson Beamon and Isabella Fiore and while Zindigo will focus initially on fashion, the company plans to expand into travel, hospitality, automotive and entertainment.

Zindigo has 18 employees divided between New York City and Palm Beach, Fla. The company takes around a 15% cut of every sale. In addition to individually operated storefronts, Zindigo will also have its own Facebook store for partner brands, as well as an ecommerce consultancy for brands.

What's important to take from the Zindigo project is that anyone can be an entrepreneur within the Facebook universe. If you want to make some money by just promoting a certain product you can easily do so. Just getting someone to buy a $500 pair of shoes can get you $200; nothing like a digital Mom and Pop store to get yourself a new pair of shoes.

How can marketing companies utilize this strategy for their clients? An online marketing company can attract a different population of users to sell their client products while earning revenue or sample products for themselves. Getting potential consumers to promote a product is not very different to the blogosphere where a blogger is rewarded for promoting product. While 40% is a little high, a solid percentage of commission can be regulated depending on the product that is being offered.

What can result from this strategy is a strong forceful push to achieve Facebook brand page likes and revenue. This strategy could also impact SEO if the consumer clicks on the links that lead the consumer to the actual website. If there is any service that is worth putting all your eggs into a single basket, I think this is the one.

BLOOMBERG
NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Zindigo (www.zindigo.com), the fashion industry's social commerce solution, has raised $4 million in funding from angel investors and contracted with over 80 apparel and accessories designers as it prepares to roll out shops with specialty brands on Facebook. Kareen Mallet, former Senior Director of Ready-to-Wear for the Neiman Marcus Group's Fashion Office in New York, has joined Zindigo as Fashion Director. Zindigo empowers the world's social users to become retailers by offering them an unprecedented opportunity to connect with brands—a 40% revenue share.

"Social networks are powerful, yet brands are still puzzled by how to convert social activity into sales," said Zindigo founder Michael Bereck. "Zindigo cracks the code to social commerce with a new formula: compelling + motivation = social traction. A compelling selection of hard-to-find merchandise combined with the irresistible motivation to earn profits will result in social distribution."

Zindigo will allow social users to open an individual designer's fully merchandised shop or a multi-brand shop on Facebook or any social platform or blog, suggest favorite products to friends, and earn 40% of every sale. Brands have traditionally relied on retail partners for distribution and now consumers can partake in the distribution, and influence a brand's widespread discovery. This brand "ambassador" approach to social engagement encourages social users to become entrepreneurs and market their own customized shop to friends. Zindigo will provide a turn-key business, with sales tracking and analytics, as well as tools for competitive selling—free shipping, Facebook advertising and charity donations—that ambassadors can choose to apply to their bottom line. Ambassadors will earn an additional 3% of sales for up to five years from the shops of friends they have referred on Zindigo.

"I have spent my career watching talented designers struggle through the challenges of building a business and developing their distribution," said Mallet. "Brands are looking for new customers and consumers are looking for unique brands, but distribution barriers limit the connection. Zindigo removes these barriers with a model that empowers the social generation to become entrepreneurs by operating their own store on today's hottest 'real estate'—social networks."

Among the fashion designers across a variety of categories that will debut Zindigo shops are Be&D, Cluny, Dallin Chase, Geren Ford, Isabella Fiore, Jay Godfrey, Kara Ross, M.C.L., Nicole Romano, NoNoo, Phoebe Couture, Raoul, Rolando Santana, and Ruffian.

About Zindigo Zindigo's formula for leveraging social commerce connects fashion brands and consumers via social networks. Zindigo empowers the world's social users to become retailers by offering a compelling selection of specialty brands and significant revenue share—40% of sales—introducing a new level of consumer engagement unprecedented in the fashion industry. Zindigo was established in 2011 by Michael Bereck, a pioneer of e-commerce for luxury fashion brands, to once again partner with designers and specialty brands to gain traction through the power of social platforms.

DAILY DEAL MEDIA
Social commerce, affiliate selling, and sharing of commissions have been around for some time now. However, the commissions offered are low, ranging from 2 percent to 8 percent.

The company is based in Florida and New York City. It currently employs 18 and plans to expand into the travel, automotive, entertainment, and other sectors later.
