The Background Rockola's mission is to bring retro back, to combine music with fashion for a New Generation. Rockola had launched two new brands into major department stores and needed e-commerce to help grow their consumer sales channel.
What we did Kicking off the project we immediately got our heads round the two core brands by launching social media presences on Facebook and Twitter. The fans and friends we made during this campaign fed into the success of the project when we later launched their e-commerce site. The Result The e-commerce site launched in January 2011 and has already attracted media attention and consistent sales. We are working with Rockola to build on this success introducing new third party sales and promotion channels.
