Connecting Running and Cycling Enthusiasts Through Social Media Allows Pearl Izumi To Identify Key Consumers And Contribute To The Conversation

BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- With more than 400 million active users, and 50% of those logging in everyday, Facebook, has become a very important conversational tool in a company's marketing portfolio. Add to that, with three million active Pages in Facebook - simply having a basic page design is no longer enough. Room 214 was hired by Pearl Izumi to create a unique custom Facebook page design to deliver content and functionality that is both attractive and resonates well with their fans.

Key Facts

  • In addition to Pearl Izumi's more traditional customer service channels, Pearl is now engaging customers through social media such as Twitter, Facebook, blogs and discussion boards.

  • From a technical standpoint, Pearl Izumi's new custom tabs on both its Running and pages feature a java script enabled transition for navigating news articles, product reviews or videos. Pearl's Facebook pages are one of the few out there using this technology.
  • Another feature worth mentioning is the article carousel at the bottom of the custom tabs. The carousel allows for quick and easy navigation to specific articles.
