theFashionSpot Adds an Online Shopping Tool Enabling Users to Shop All the Latest Clothes & Accessories
NOVEMBER 8TH, 2010 LOS ANGELES, CA— theFashionSpot (www.thefashionspot.com), the largest fashion-focused community and fashion editorial site on the web, announced today its partnership with ShopNation (www.shopnation.com), a content-rich shopping engine for fashion and accessories. This alliance launches the new Storefront http://shop.thefashionspot.com/shop_clothes.html shopping tool on theFashionSpot website.
Powered by ShopNation’s proprietary technology, theFashionSpot’s Storefront allows shoppers who love fashion to find exactly what they want and need – searchable by designer, size, color, brand, retailer, new arrivals, sales and more. ShopNation’s powerful, fast, and smart technology constantly updates data, so shoppers are never disappointed, and advertisers and brands achieve maximum exposure.
“We wanted to offer our community not only full coverage of all things fashion, but also the ability to shop right at their finger tips,” says Dana Glazer, Managing Director of theFashionSpot.com. “ShopNation’s technology and expertise in the online retail space made them a clear choice for a partnership. To better align our content with the shopping habits of our audience – comprised mainly of designers, stylists, models and fashionistas – ShopNation’s technology gives our readers a fast, easy-to-use interface, thereby creating a more engaging experience while on the site.”
The Storefront has thousands of fashion items divided into seven main categories including New Arrivals, Sale, Clothing, Shoes, Handbags, Accessories, and Lingerie. With so many brands available, this shopping tool makes finding that perfect item easier than ever.
Travis Schneider, CEO of ShopNation, explains, “The partnership between theFashionSpot and ShopNation introduces a solution for monetizing site traffic that is both incremental and complementary to traditional advertising. It’s a whole new way for readers to interact with editorial content – while giving publishers and advertisers new avenues to revenue. We couldn’t be happier about partnering with theFashionSpot and look forward to launching many more new initiatives together.”
Over the course of the next few months, theFashionSpot’s Storefront will add interactive widgets, working in tandem with content posted on its editorial pages. Using ShopNation’s distributed commerce technology, these showcased items will be available for immediate purchase. This new feature will further increase the potential for monetization and better align brands and advertisers with theFashionSpot’s articles.
