It never ceases to amaze me how far spread buyoutisdethebox.com visitors are. While looking at some stats recently I couldn't help but enjoy that on one far end of the map, Alaska, to the other far corner, Australia; we had visitors. I immediately felt a connection to such faraway places of the world, knowing that our website users were viewing and choosing the same great artwork that I look at every day.
We study trends on the Internet, as well as the trends that pertain specifically to our site. For instance according to a recent Nielsen//NetRatings, a global leader in Internet media and market research, The biggest online shopping day of this holiday season was December 12th with 30.4 million unique visitors to the eShopping Holiday Index. On that day, eBay led the top shopping destinations with a unique audience of 12.4 million, followed by Amazon with 6.1 million unique visitors, and Wal-mart.com
with 4.0 million.
Our own peak shopping day was a week earlier, on December 5th. I would like to think that is an indication that our holiday shoppers are a little more organized than the general public.
Knowing our buying market, is just one aspect of running a website that specializes in Creative Consumerism™. Our bottom line is to showcase beautiful art and fine handmade things to those that appreciate such things. From there the art sells itself.
Take a look at these beautiful handpainted silks by artist Kathy Davis. A brilliant fashion statement in any season, Kathy's wearable art silks will make you stand out in a crowd. I know I own one myself. Everytime I wear it someone notices the stunning camisole.
