Sock Club has some exciting news to share! We've recently hired a B2B E-Commerce Manager to help make our website even better. 

Our new B2B E-Commerce Manager is like a traffic wizard for our website. They're using lots of different tools and strategies to make sure more people visit us online. Think of it like a treasure hunt – they're making it easier for you to discover our fantastic socks. 

They're working on something called "organic search," which is like finding things on the internet without ads. They're also using "paid search," which is when we put up special ads to get your attention. And don't forget about social media ads – you might see our socks popping up on your favorite social media sites because of this new manager.

So, if you're searching for branded socks for your business, you'll have an even better chance of finding us thanks to our new manager's hard work. Keep an eye out for us online, and don't be surprised if you spot our ads while you're scrolling through your favorite websites and social media apps.

Ilia Belov joined the Sock Club team in August 2023 as our B2B E-Commerce Manager, helping to level up our digital marketing so that we can reach even more people who might not realize (yet!) that custom socks are the solution to their problem.
