Now that we’re back home in Princeton after our summer trip the Etail Boston, I wanted to share some prominent feedback from the retailers & an important piece of advice given by our CEO, Udayan regarding the questions that the retailers had. The show attracted over 800 retailers eager to gain new information and actionable insights. The mood at the show can be described as “cautiously-optimistic”. The recent economic volatility was partially responsible for the anxiousness.
After two long, yet exciting days at the Etail 2011, the NetElixir Team has come home to Princeton. It was an extremely rewarding experience I had by attending this show. It was great to see exhibitors, including ourselves, coming together with retailers from all over the country. Not only were we able to network, but everyone was able to learn from each other. This definitely showed true at the panel discussion that our CEO, Udayan Bose, participated in.
The NetElixir team arrived yesterday in Boston for Day 1 of the Etail 2011!
It is great for me to see how many retailers have come out this week to the show. They are able to experience insightful seminars to learn ways to improve their online performances as well as network with the many vendors like us here to help with those improvements. Even with the economy taking a turn for the worse, representatives from these retailers remain positive and are coming to us with hope of being able to be more successful online through SEM, SEO, CSE, social media & more. I believe it is a great learning experience for all attendees – retailers and vendors.
The Internet Retailers Conference & Exhibition is always a great experience being that it is the largest online e-commerce show. This year’s IRCE was a huge success for the NetElixir team!
The number of attendees was phenomenal, breaking the IRCE attendee record at over 7,300! We had over 400 retailers come to our booth throughout the duration of the conference. It was wonderful to have the chance to meet everyone and gain a deeper insight into their businesses and challenges.
The NetElixir team is finally back from the IRCE in San Diego! It was truly a privilege to be a part of the largest online e-commerce show. The diversity, number of attendees and enthusiasm levels made the IRCE very special. We are so happy we had the opportunity to go and can’t wait for the next one!
The NetElixir team is really enjoying their time at the Internet Retailers Conference & Exhibition occuring right now in San Diego. There are a lot of great people to meet and the team is having a fantastic time handing out our NetElixir bag (which has turned out to be a huge hit!) and our 2011 Fresh Ideas Workbook that we’ve been waiting so anxiously to release!
The time has finally come! The NetElixir team is packing up and heading to the Internet Retailers Conference & Exhibition in San Diego, California tomorrow! We are very excited to see what this year’s conference has in store, meet all of the people we can, and have the opportunity to debut the 2011 Fresh Ideas Workbook to Turbo Charge Your Online Marketing Program This Holiday Season.
NetElixir’s 2011 Fresh Ideas Workbook is making its debut in only six days at this year’s Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition in San Diego! The team at NetElixir is very excited for this year’s edition and wanted to give a sneak peak to what it has to offer!
With the fluctuating economy and the “Amazonification” over the Internet that is more than prevalent, it is obvious that these conditions have made it a struggle for any size online retailer to succeed today. NetElixir really tapped into this dilemma with this “practical idea-book” that was designed to help retailers of any size improve their online marketing programs and increase profit sales, especially in the most prominent time of the year for sales- the holiday season.
Summer is finally here and with that comes the long awaited warm weather and sunshine! So the last thing we all want to think about is snow, frigid weathers, and even more nerve racking, the holidays, right? Think again! The holiday season is the most prominent time for retailers of any size, bringing in 25-40% of annual sales for some. Because of this, it is never too early to start preparing to make the most of this year’s holiday shopping season.
When I saw this article “Best Buy CEO: Who’s Afraid of the iPad?” http://www.fastcompany.com/1691767/best-buy-ceo-tablets-not-the-death-of-notebooks on Fast Company two weeks ago, I thought to myself “Uh oh, something is shaking up Best Buy…” When Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn first cautioned about the “cannibalization of netbooks” by iPads by as much as 50%, and then he and President Mike Vitelli quickly backtracked the comment by saying how small a percentage iPad sales has been compared to the overall PC notebook market that it simply wouldn’t affect laptop sales.
