Director of Sales and Marketing for The Retail Observer
Earlier this year, The Retail Observer launched a completely redesigned website. Between 400 and 500 of you visit the site daily to get the latest news and Twitter feeds from all of the industries we cover. On our home page, you will find current features from our monthly issue, which is mailed out to more than 14,000 hard-copy subscribers and 5,700 email subscribers in 33 countries. You will also find links to other pages on the site like our writers’ corner, blogs, archives, subscription requests and more.
There is an industry Twitter feed on our home page which has a live stream of news from industry leaders, associations, trade shows, as well as other bloggers, writers and magazines who provide timely and relevant information.
Major appliances, consumer electronics and furniture news are also covered on the Twitter feed and on our news page. With live RSS feeds, we follow the trends and news from all over the world to help keep you updated and ahead of the competition. This page also links to the industry news articles in our current issue.
Our events page features our current monthly calendar as seen in the magazine, but now has an extended Year-at-a-Glance calendar to help you plan further ahead. Also, don’t forget to visit these pages: our Partners page includes an industry directory that links to the sites of manufacturers, distributors, buying groups and trade associations; and our Heart of the Industry page is where we proudly support our favorite charities and our partners’ charities with in-kind advertising.
