Online shopping continues to grow by leaps and bounds, driven primarily by the time constraints of consumers and also by the deals that exist online.
According to some recent statistics, online purchasing by consumers has increased by as much as 40% since 2001. In addition, in the "bargain driven" world of online shopping, roughly 67% of online shoppers look for a percentage of savings on products, 25% look for free shipping, and about 8% or so, are wooed into the purchasing process by the offer of a free gift or other incentive. This trend towards the expectation of shopping incentives by online shoppers is clear when studying some rather large online merchants.
In addition, many online shoppers do enjoy finding many varied items in one location, a "one stop shopping" approach that has been successfully parlayed by many offline retail merchants. This one stop approach has been widely received in the online shopping market by consumers also.
This type of online marketing strategy has led to the evolvement of Web sites and online merchants that offer discounted merchandise and products, and only discounted merchandise and products, as well as a variety of products and services on one Web site.
One of the newest purveyors of quality products at hugely discounted prices is the trendy, "easy on the eyes", merchandise-heavy online merchant, ThrifyFox.com. ThriftyFox.com promotes a huge assortment of cutting-edge, much-needed products and services for which online consumers hungrily search. ThriftyFox.com has taken the concept of "discount marketing" one step further and provides the top-notch quality many consumers desire with the deeply discounted pricing and the special offers that they also want.
ThriftyFox.com offers quality goods and services that are routinely sought by online consumers. ThriftyFox.com is a "virtual" A-Z provider of practically anything that online shoppers desire: electronics, office supplies and products, movies, satellite TV services, books, and phone service. A section for "searching" for a variety of specific products exists on ThriftyFox.com, and an updated daily "Hot Sheet" of specials is prominent.
In addition, ThriftyFox.com takes the online shopping experience one step further, and provides a forum on its Web site, where avid "shopaholics" can avail themselves of "freebies" such as personal items, golf balls, cleaning products, and of course, merchandise that provides free shipping, which many shoppers are actively seeking.
ThriftyFox.com provides a "Top Rated" section, where shoppers can view the items that ThriftyFox.com believes are great deals. Additional coupons, hot deals, and rebates appear in the shopping forum daily, and visitors have the added pleasure of discussing shopping and bargain hunting online with others.
The trend towards online shopping and purchasing seems to be continuing unabated, and will do so for what seems like many years to come. Online shoppers are a "special breed" indeed with special needs, and more sites such as ThriftyFox.com will continue to cater to the needs of the online shopper both now and in the future.
