Sporting House Direct’s online Strategist, Toby Wallace-Crabbe, sets out their objectives, “Our growth plan is to implement an omni-channel sales and marketing strategy. In order to do this, we will sell across many platforms (online, Facebook, bricks-and-mortar, eBay, Amazon, Group Buying sites, etc).
As our model grows we would like to have local sites in many markets and tailor each offering to the wants and needs of the local shoppers in that market. We have recently implemented a cloud-based inventory management system which links all our online entities with our physical shops, warehouses and drop-ship suppliers. This now enables us to control all channels from one central point and enjoy consistent stock levels and pricing across the business.”
“RetailTower is now an integral sales and marketing tool for our business and we plan to use it to list on many other shopping comparison sites like Shopzilla, GetPrice, Nextag and many more!” Toby Wallace-Crabbe, Online Strategist.
“We use Retail Tower to deliver rich product feeds to our afﬁliate networking platforms as well as to drive targeted trafﬁc through comparison shopping sites like MyShopping, GetPrice and Google Product Search.
As we expand internationally we plan to use Retail Tower to assist us in increasing our presence through US and UK focused comparison shopping engines.
Our current MyShopping and GetPrice traffic delivers a 3% conversion rate (our normal rate is around 1.5%).
Since launching our affiliate programs we have had over 100 affiliates join our programs in 3 months. This expands daily. Since using Retail Tower our web traffic has increased by close to 200%!”
