The Seattle-anchored ecommerce giant today confirmed that it will open “pop-up” retail shops in both California cities. The branded electronics seasonal sales push echoes a similar pop-up shop campaign Amazon launched last year in a handful of malls ahead of the holidays.
Will Ello's closed, data-protected model mean changes for the social advertising landscape?
Here's the great question among marketers these days: What happens when paid social media is the only way to reliably reach your prospects? What does this mean for consumers, and what does this mean for advertisers?
Social media is considered a must for most businesses in 2014. Why, then, do many local affiliates -- franchisees, agents and dealers -- shy away from the low cost and far-reaching tools of digital advertising?

Let, a teen social networking app with a focus on gamification, is announcing that it has raised $600,000 in seed funding.
That’s not a huge amount of money, but the funding is interesting in the context of Let’s history. When I first met founder Pascal Lorne a few months ago, he told me that when when he launched the Let app in fall 2013, it wasn’t reaching the right audience, so he turned down outside investment and bought out his co-founders, while the developers continued working on the project part-time in exchange for equity.
For those of you that either don’t have the time or aren’t very good at using Twitter and Facebook to find the best or most important news of the day, know that you are not alone. News aggregation startup Nuzzel, however, does have a pretty good solution: Mooch off of other people who are good at it.
Today the startup is launching a new feature that will let you subscribe to email updates collecting the aggregated social news feed from certain influential people. The goal here is that you can benefit from someone else taking the time to follow and interact with the best news makers/sharers on Twitter and Facebook, even if you rarely use either service often.
