In today’s Internet Retailing newsletter, we report on how Shop Direct has turned in its first profit in a decade, while also looking at plans by a coalition that includes Play.com and MyHigh.St to take 200 high streets online. We hear from retailers including Henri Lloyd and consider new strategies for building business, from international sales to the sporting events of 2014.
We have an upcoming webinar to let you know about. Internet Retailing webinars are free to attend, and you can find out more by visiting our webinar page.
On November 5 at 11am, SLI Systems will investigate how a search-data-centric way of executing online merchandising can make the difference to the user experience that makes websites stand out.
