This $700 Million Company Thinks Advertising On Facebook Is Working 'Extremely Well'

1-800-Flowers President, Chris McCann, has helped shape his company from a traditional brick-and-mortar, mum-and-pop operation, to one of the leading e-commerce sites in the world. And he’s done so while continuing to grow the number of stores the company has – which was certainly helped by his ability to stay ahead of trends in retail sales and advertising.

After being on the forefront of tele-commerce in the ’80s and e-commerce in the ’90s, the company is now embracing mobile and social commerce in a way few others have.

We interviewed McCann last month as part of our Mobile Advertising Conference.

Watch the clip below where McCann talks about the effectiveness of advertising on Facebook.
