Welcome to episode 52 of IMA Leader! We’re exactly one year old this week. We started on the heels of IMPACT14 and, as this show is released, thousands of us are being educated and entertained at IMPACT15. If you are with us at the conference right now, I hope you’ve found a chance to find me and introduce yourself. If you couldn’t make it this year, be part of the social conversation with hashtag #IMPACT15.
In this episode, Dominick and Matt talk about images and how the consumer experience is improved by making images clickable, leading direct to purchase. Companies can monetize their images and customers can get what they want easily. It’s a win-win and Curalate is on the cutting edge of this with huge brands jumping on board. Listen to hear how companies like Lucky, Nordstrom, Target, and Lilly Pulitzer are on the cutting edge.
Also, join Matt the the Curalate team for a webinar on October 8th at 11am Pacific. More info here curalate.com/imawebinar
