Society6 Sees Strongest Month in Company History with $17.1 Million in Gross Transaction Value in July

The Brand Launched an Omnichannel Back-to-School Campaign in July and Continued to Invest in Mobile Improvements

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Society6 today announced record-setting Gross Transaction Value (GTV) of $17.1 million – a 144% increase year-over-year – for July 2020, marking the brand’s strongest month in company history.  In July, Society6 saw strong growth in its Art Prints, Bedding and Home Decor categories as customer purchase behavior continues to rapidly shift to online in the home decor market. The artist-driven online marketplace, featuring made-to-order products in home decor, wall art, apparel and accessories, launched its annual Back-to-School campaign in July, while continuing to invest in improvements for the mobile user experience, with updates including new department and category pages and a redesigned shopping cart and checkout process.

For this year’s Back-to-School campaign, Society6 took a different approach given uncertainties around in-person learning. Called “Inspired by U,” the campaign features a unique aesthetic specifically tailored to connect with both on-campus and stay-at-home students – taking inspiration from all the locations people will be studying from this school year. Featuring home decor, tech and office accessories, the “Inspired by U” campaign is an Omnichannel marketing program that includes a dedicated in-home and digital catalog and new customer journey videos showcasing a variety of styles inspired by the favorite products and designs of real Society6 customers. The brand’s “Inspired by U” campaign launched in July and will run through mid-September.

“The Society6 Omnichannel Back-to-School marketing campaign builds on the success of our recent promotions and revamped merchandising strategy, while capitalizing on our strength in the home decor category,” said Julie Matrat, General Manager of Society6. “This cohesive marketing strategy layers online and offline channels, including beautifully shot customer journey videos – a new channel we tested in Q2. Our Society6 Back-to-School campaign is driving deeper connections to our audience and our inspiring collections serve all students, no matter what space they will learn in come Fall.”
