With spring and summer just around the corner, the Digital Visitor creative team have put their heads together to come up with some fantastic social media campaign ideas for retail companies.

We put our team’s imagination to the test, and tasked them with creating concepts that would support retailers’ most important objectives. The results were these original social media campaign ideas aimed to deliver community growth, brand engagement, data capture, email opt-ins, and to drive sales.

The campaign ideas utilize both custom technology and bespoke Facebook applications, which can be tailored to achieve any number of creative executions – the sky is the limit, but here are a few ideas to get your gears turning for your Spring/Summer social media plan:
