GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — Mega Group USA — a national home furnishings buying group of independent appliance, furniture, mattress, electronics, and seasonal and outdoor retailers — has announced that Erik Qualman, a renowned expert on digital leadership and reputation, will give the keynote address at its national convention set for Aug. 21-24 at the Omni Hotel and Music City Center in Nashville.

Through his entertaining, motivational and engaging style, Qualman will present the latest “socialnomics” insights on how social media has transformed business, particularly how retailers can maximize their businesses through best practices in online reputation management.

Following Qualman’s presentation on Aug. 23, there will be a signing of his latest book and Pulitzer Prize nominated work, “What Happens in Vegas Stays on YouTube.”

“Erik Qualman is a digital visionary, a trusted advisor to global companies on how to use digital for their success,” said Rick Bellows, president of Mega Group USA. “Inviting Erik as our special guest at the fall convention is a testament to our commitment to our member retailers to remain on the forefront of technology. It’s all about what we can do in this ever-evolving digital age to help our members stay in business — and thrive.”

In Mega Group’s history of providing web marketing solutions to its members, it has recently complete beta testing of its WebFronts Level 4, the latest version of Retailer Web Services’ turnkey digital marketing software developed specifically for independent durable goods retailers.

Level 4 was officially launched this spring, and during the July 4th holiday, 16 individual turnkey promotions were available for Mega members to feature on their Level 4 WebFronts. This resulted in 1.9 million impressions, 1,429 rebate form downloads and more than 3,000 phone calls directly from consumers’ mobile sites.
