About this entry

At kate spade new york, social media is an integral part of how we look at our marketing, communications and consumer outreach – it is part of our thinking each day. Very early on, we put significant effort toward innovative ways to engage with our customers and communicate the kate spade new york lifestyle across a range of social media channels. We were one of the first brands to experiment on Pinterest, launching there long before other fashion brands. Our creative marketing team continues to work together to share a mix of current product, campaign shots, branded blog content and inspirational images on our boards. Our community consists of devoted brand advocates, as well as inspires those who may not yet be familiar with the kate spade new york brand. We have an incredibly strong following due to our original pins, versus the more often done re-pins. Each of our six evergreen boards helps us bring our brand promise of living colorfully to life for our followers. We show our fans how to: dress colorfully, travel colorfully, think colorfully, decorate colorfully and celebrate colorfully. We also created a collection of editorial boards that reflect current products, cultural moments and yearly creative themes, which allow our Chief Creative Officer Deborah Lloyd to share her inspiration and favorite seasonal items directly. The kate spade new york Pinterest page is one of the most colorful places on the web! We started on Pinterest as a brand choice – it was all about sharing our brand voice, not about sales. But, it has ended up being a sales contributor and we see a frequent and direct link from Pinterest to eCommerce sales. We are proud of this statistic, as it underscores our overall brand approach – we put our brand first and are channel agnostic in our approach.

We consider ourselves to be bold and open to experimentation with emerging digital channels; we take significant calculated risks, but always listen to customer feedback. Our team creates unique strategies for each digital platform, as we understand that each channel functions in a different way. Our primary goal is to keep our fans and customers engaged and we understand that we must give them a compelling reason to follow us on multiple channels. In addition to creating interesting content, we are always listening – our conversations are authentic and we adjust our strategic approach as our consumer’s behavior changes.
