Product Launches Come to Hubba! Last Year’s Best and Brightest
As we settle into the new year, Hubba’s Community Management team has been making some resolutions. The jury’s out on if they’ll resolve to organize the files on their desktop or go to yoga on their lunch breaks, but they have decided upon one thing for certain: 2017 is going to be the ‘Year of the Brand’.
They’ve been thinking a lot about how to further highlight the amazing brands on Hubba to the retailers trying to find them. “One of our top priorities is to bring trending products to retailers,” says Liana Fisher, one of our Community Managers. “This year, we’re going to put a focus on showcasing product launches from our community.”
The campaign will bring opportunities for your brand to amplify product launches to a B2B audience all year around, not just at trade shows. “Often brands launch products on social media and their website, which generally attract a B2C audience. But this is a chance to launch your product to an active B2B market!”
To kick off the campaign, we set out to find the most innovative and successful product launches on our network from last year! So without further ado, here are the Best New Products of 2016.
