    Hey folks, thanks for mentioning our list of retail social media campaigns. It’s pretty amazing to see the creativity out there. I think there is a big upside for traditional retailers however. As you can tell, the list is dominated by brand manufacturers.

    We have a webinar on social media for online retailers with SMO rockstar Neil Patel on October 10th – pop in, we’d love to field some of your questions!

"I've worked with the Liberate Media team for a number of years, and have always been impressed with the knowledge and creative edge that they've brought to the iBAHN campaign.

“They have developed a deep understanding of our business and objectives, and consider our communications challenges with sound and well-informed reasoning.

“Most recently Liberate has encouraged us to embrace social media as part of our campaign, and have helped to demystify the radically different approach required to communicate in this environment.”
