Director of Sales and Marketing for The Retail Observer
A few years ago, The Retail Observer launched a completely redesigned website. Between 18-20 thousand of you visit the site monthly to get the latest news and Twitter feeds from all of the industries we cover. On our home page, you will find current features and partner spotlights from our monthly issue, which is mailed out to more than 15,000 hard-copy subscribers and 6,500 email subscribers in 36 countries. You will also find links to other pages on the site like our writers’ corner, blogs, archives, subscription requests and more.
We just launched a new feature for your reading pleasure, the “Daily News”. We scour hundreds of news feeds daily to bring you the latest news from our industry partners, new trends, product offerings and educational opportunities. You’ll find this on our home page and in our news section. We also have live Twitter feeds and Facebook postings on the home page for easy access.
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.
