STYLECASTER Modernizes Its Online Shopping Experience with Bringhub’s StoreFront and New SmartCart Technology
September 8, 2016
STYLECASTER overhauled its e-commerce offering in time for New York Fashion Week 2016, leveraging Bringhub, the leading in-content and in-advertisement e-commerce platform that provides superior tools to monetize content, advertising and user behavior. Bringhub’s innovative SmartCart allows STYLECASTER’s editorial content to become a point of purchase, enabling users to seamlessly explore and shop products without leaving the site. As a result, users can discover, favorite and purchase products directly from featured content, while the StoreFront solution showcases all of the products featured on STYLECASTER in a single location.
An improved shopping experience follows STYLECASTER’s end-to-end brand relaunch at the beginning of the year, bolstered by new leadership and expanded bicoastal editorial, sales and marketing team. The relaunch featured an improved content strategy, a complete site redesign, new mission statement and branding, new video capabilities, as well as enhanced mobile experience.
“I’m thrilled to introduce a one-stop shopping solution that will not only better serve our users, but also provide more integrated advertising solutions for partners,” said Jessica Teves, Editor in Chief of STYLECASTER and SheKnows.com. “STYLECASTER is committed to making style possible for women everywhere, and it excites me greatly to explore innovative products that help to evolve the experience in the online publishing space.”
"We are excited to provide an engaging and exploratory shopping experience directly on STYLECASTER,” said Dominik Pantelides, CEO and Co-Founder of Bringhub. "By partnering with a leading fashion and beauty site with a massive millennial following, we are truly establishing the shopping experience for the connected generation.”
STYLECASTER, headquartered in New York City, is a premier style destination that delivers a daily forecast of need-to-know fashion, beauty, entertainment, and lifestyle intel for today’s millennial woman.
