Following fashion retailers online

There’s a distinct fashion theme to today’s Internet Retailing newsletter, where today we report on the Rihanna effect on River Island’s web traffic, on eBay’s move to use Dressipi’s personalised fashion recommendations on its Fashion Gallery, and on New Look’s strong ecommerce growth.

Perhaps that reflects a shopping environment in which women’s fashion is doing particularly well online, if Barclaycard’s analysis of July spending is anything to go by. We also report on Rakuten Marketing’s acquisition of the PopShops intelligent data analytics platform, and on the effect affiliate marketing has had for Evolution Slimming.

We have an upcoming date in our series of free-to-attend webinars to let you know about today. Sadly, today’s scheduled webinar, Bam! Ka-Pow! Power-packing your post-purchase programs, has been postponed due to illness. We will let you know the new date as soon as we have it.

On Thursday September 5, Nuance focuses on customer service in, Creating satisfied customers – meet Nina Web, the new face of online customer experience. Tim Atkinson, business development director at Nuance, is the speaker for this event, to be held at 11am. He’ll be showing how Nuance’s intelligent virtual assistant can talk to, serve and listen to customers around the clock, and demonstrating how it works for existing customers including Coca Cola and Michelin.
