Room 214 Launches Custom Designed Facebook Pages for Pearl Izumi

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. The goal of the new Facebook tabs is simple - make the company more accessible to its consumers while simultaneously engaging them with relevant and interesting content.
  • 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.
  • Amidst all the changes Facebook is pushing through these days, Pearl Izumi's custom tabs were built ready for the rapidly ensuing conversion from 720 pixels to 520 pixels.
