Smallest store in the world. IKEA Starts ‘How to Build’ YouTube Channel to Help Frustrated Customers. We’ve all been there: Standing forlorn in a bedroom, staring at the unused screws sitting next to a half-finished IKEA bed, parts mixed up with the ones for an unbuilt MALM three-drawer chest.

IKEA Starts ‘How to Build’ YouTube Channel to Help Frustrated Customers

Don’t worry, IKEA feels your pain. That’s why it recently debuted a new “How To Build” playlist on YouTube. (WATCH: Recipes for YouTube Success) If you’re like me, your spatial reasoning is roughly on par with a can of tuna. Thus the normal assembly instructions that come with each product and are available online just aren’t enough to ensure a desk doesn’t have one its drawers installed upside down. The first “How to Build” video remedies this by folding IKEA’s illustrated instructions into a demonstration with real people building a bed frame, complete with close-up bubbles and fun little animated arrows and building tips.

IKEA Wants Facebook Fans to Bring Friends to Stores

Facebook marketers this year figured out how to combine like-gating with philanthropy, and now IKEA plans to add foot traffic to the mix in early 2012. The Swedish retailer is trying to get consumers to bring themselves and their Facebook friends to its locations for a freebies-and-discounts event on Jan. 14. To get information on the "Bring Your Own Friend" event, visitors to IKEA's Facebook page need to click on a tab app on the left-hand side. Using a fairly elaborate friends invite module, Facebook users are encouraged to select their cronies on the social site according to their personal attributes. Viewers can peek in on what specials are running at their local IKEA by clicking through to a dedicated Facebook page for the store.

IKEA Trials MÄNLAND, A Male Crèche With TV & Games

The male creche was trialled for four days to give men a place to relax if they weren’t keen on walking round the store. Their shopping partner could check them in for 30 minutes, receiving a buzzer to remind them to retrieve them when the time was up. Men could then enjoy themselves with the table football, arcade games, Xbox console, pinball machines, non-stop sports on TV, free hotdogs and non-alcoholic drinks available. Jude Leon, IKEA’s PR Manager, said: It’s generally acknowledged that most men don’t enjoy shopping as much as women so we wanted to provide a place for the reluctant male to seek sanctuary from shopping stresses whilst allowing spouses to peruse IKEA at their leisure.
