Stay Current with Online Shopping Obsession Sites
Irwin Weiner ASID - I first heard from my in-the-know clients about four addictive, members-only web sites for luxury fashion and home goods. The concept is simple: publish impulse-flash sales at a specific time of day or send out sale alerts to your members that they can scoop up substantial discounts on hand-picked, staff curated luxury goods. You can't lose if you love high fashion and bargains, but many members report feeling left out if they don't take advantage of specific sales.
There's no buyer's remorse if you make a purchase and respond quickly - and these sites have apps for tablets, SmartPhones, and android devices so you're constantly getting pinged. One of my clients told me about great artwork for her daughter's room wall that we could get on one of these sites. Another told me about a Blu Dot furniture sale on another.
Check out Gilt (the following video shows the buzz about their hot site), Rue La La, Fab.com, and Ideeli.
