Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2009
SLI Systems, provider of on-demand, intelligent search services for Internet and e-commerce sites, announced today that the latest Ecommerce Podcast (http://www.ecommercepodcast.com) interview features Lizzy Klein, vice president of product development for Folica.com. In the podcast interview, Klein and Ecommerce Podcast host Shaun Ryan, CEO of SLI Systems, discuss how to capitalize on social networking buzz about a company, as well as the need to organize an online storefront based on customer buying habits. Folica.com offers more than 5,000 hair care and styling products for women and men.
“We’re really proud of the fact that our customers have created videos about their positive experiences shopping on Folica.com and have posted them on YouTube,” Klein said. “We didn’t drive this effort, and we’re thrilled with it. It’s confirmation that we’ve been successful.” Klein said her team also connects with customers on Twitter (@Folica).
Klein also discussed the forthcoming redesign of Folica.com, which will incorporate channels that allow shoppers with specific hair care needs to fine-tune their navigation of the site. “For instance, curly-haired women only want products for curly hair,” Klein explained. “We also do a big business in hair loss and hair growth products for men, so sending them right to a section dedicated to men’s needs will spare them from sifting through pages about curling irons and other products.”
The redesigned site will incorporate user-generated content, as well as expert advice from top hair care professionals. “Our customers place a high amount of trust in their hair care professionals,” Klein said. “Adding non-product content from some of the biggest names in hair care will establish instant credibility with new customers.”
