Retailers and brands use 8thBridge technology and expertise to monetize social media.
8thBridge Graphite’s Engagement technology weaves social shopping experiences into existing ecommerce sites and social data into existing marketing systems.
8thBridge’s Social Analytics capabilities make it possible for retailers and brands to identify influential customers, product experts, and highly engaged advocates. We make this insight actionable so that brands can use it to attract new customers and increase purchases from existing customers.
We’re on a mission to reshape ecommerce around people. Hundreds of millions of people use social media to discover and promote the things they care about. Increasingly, customers are learning about new products from friends more frequently than from brands.
8thBridge-powered social commerce experiences give customers the opportunity to shop with each other on their favorite ecommerce sites, discover new ideas from people with similar interests, get rewards for wielding their influence, and receive far more relevant offers from brands.
From the groundbreaking early days of F-Commerce with 1-800-Flowers in 2009, to the award winning Delta Air Lines social travel planning app in 2010, to the 2012 launch of our Open Graph integration technology with Ticketmaster, the world’s most respected and innovative brands have partnered with 8thBridge.
We’ve consistently led the innovation and evolution of Social Commerce – migrating it from social network websites to ecommerce sites and broadening it from the top of the purchasing funnel to the bottom.
8thBridge was recognized by the Always On Global 250 in 2011 as one of the top 250 private companies in the world.
8thBridge is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN with offices in San Francisco and New York.
Since its founding in 2008, world class brands like American Express, Toys”R”Us, Coach, DVF, Juicy Couture, Ticketmaster, Delta Air Lines, Oscar de la Renta, Estee Lauder, and many others have partnered with 8thBridge. 8thBridge has been featured in Advertising Age, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, The New York Times, WWD, Bloomberg TV, and TechCrunch. 8thBridge is funded by Split Rock Partners and Trident Capital.
