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 NetElixir team is have a great time at the IRCE! It’s so exciting that the 2011 Fresh Ideas Workbook is finally out!
The workbook is packed with tips and ideas for retailers to better their online marketing performances with many different services including, but not limited to, paid search advertising, search engine optimization, social media outlets, and more. Paid search advertising, or PPC, is very important to be conscious of and know how to use it in the best ways possible because if you do not, you are wasting unnecessary money!

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.
The headline can also be “The largest retail gain since March!”
Stripping out autos, gasoline and building materials, retail sales rose 0.6% in August. As consumer spending continues to grow at a modest pace in the 3rd quarter, retailers are more optimistic about the last quarter of the year. Most consumers are still spending conservatively, looking for bargain deals.
It’s August and the eTail East 2010 Conference is right around the corner. Joining other senior marketing executives at eTail, we at NetElixir are in full gear preparing for the roundtable discussion of Holiday Preparedness for 2010 – Protecting Every Dollar and Maximizing Internet Retail Sales.
Holiday Preparedness is such a critical concept for retailers. Whether you have brick-and-mortar stores or just online web stores, preparing your store(s) for the holidays mean you have to start planning now.
