Retail Online Integration is excited to present its fifth annual list of the 100 fastest-growing omnichannel retail companies. To compile this year's list, we researched net sales figures for all of the public retail companies in the United States (and a select few headquartered in Canada that have a significant presence in the U.S.).
The data for this list was collected in August by Social Annex, a social commerce platform provider. Companies included on ROI's 100 fastest-growing retailers' list were compared. Scores were based on a scale of zero to 100, using a weighted average of the percentile scores to arrive at the overall score. Final rankings reflect the retailer's audience reach across the most popular social networks.
I've never been much of a tea drinker. Sure, I like a cup of Earl Grey every once in a while, but coffee is my morning beverage of choice.

While Black Friday weekend suffered the first spending decline since 2009, Cyber Monday increased nearly 20 percent to a record level, according to ComScore.

The strongest promotion in this spotlight comes from Ray-Ban, in large part due to its branding. Ray-Ban is hosting "Envision the Possibilities," encouraging consumers around the world to contribute their visions to the #EnvisionSeries gallery. Ray-Ban has two Facebook apps working for the promotion. The first app is for "Never Hide Films," which right now is featuring "insanely talented people who are changing the way we view creativity in social media." The second, called "Social Visionaries," scans public Facebook data to create personalized videos: "The Social Brilliance of [Facebook Username]."
The data for this list was collected in July of this year by social commerce platform provider 8thBridge. Companies from ROI's 100 Fastest-Growing Retailers’ list were compared. Scores were out of 100 possible points and calculated based on if the brand had a presence on the social platform, how large its following was, how engaged it was with its followers and how engaged people were with the brand. Note: Each brand's Klout score was factored into its overall social score.
