Ikea readies new digital initiatives
July 20, 2011,
New York - During a press event here last night to unveil its 2012 catalog, Ikea also revealed some new marketing initiatives it will soon launch to emphasize a design message.
In August, Ikea will launch an iPad app and add some new features to its U.S. website.
A new blog called Design by Ikea will further push the retailer's design marketing message. Finally, Ikea is changing its Twitter handle to @DesignByIKEA.
The new catalog drops in two weeks. As part of Ikea's sustainability positioning, Ikea is launching a line of children's bedding called Torva along with plush toys and a book of the same name. The toys are depictions of the fruit and vegetable characters in the book, which teaches children about the importance of a healthy planet.
