Over the past five years, our partnership with TeamFanShop has continued to prosper and the Georgia athletics program is excited about the GShop reaching an all-time sales high.
Athens, GA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Since the launch of the Georgia Bulldogs official online store in July 2006 under the e-commerce services of TeamFanShop, the GShop has shown significant online revenue growth. During October 2011, Georgia’s online store experienced record breaking sales, which was over 100% higher in YOY sales growth compared to October 2010. This sales figure is even greater than October 2008 when the Georgia Bulldogs football team was preseason number one in the country.
“Over the past five years, our partnership with TeamFanShop has continued to prosper and the Georgia athletics program is excited about the GShop reaching an all-time sales high,” stated John Bateman, Director of Marketing for the UGA Athletic Association. “Choosing TeamFanShop for all of Georgia’s e-commerce needs was an optimal decision in 2006 and we look forward to reaching even higher sales numbers in the coming years under our thriving relationship.”
The official online store of the Georgia Bulldogs, Shop.georgiadogs.com, features all the latest merchandise for fans to show athletics support at the University of Georgia. The GShop displays apparel for men, women and kids such as tees, hats, jerseys, tailgating gear and score t-shirts to commemorate key victories – including the Bulldogs most recent win over rival, the Florida Gators. Customers can shop in confidence with a secure checkout experience, 3-day flat rate shipping, easy 365-day returns, and a top rated customer service team on hand to respond promptly to any questions or concerns. Fans can rest assured that their online shopping experience is the best in the industry.
“TeamFanShop has been committed since day one to utilizing every resource in reach for the elevation of the Georgia Bulldogs official store. Despite our enthusiasm about continued sales growth, we will diligently work toward furthering our successful partnership with the Georgia Athletics Association,” commented Brian Swallow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TeamFanShop. “We believe strongly in teamwork. While we are constantly discovering ways to improve every aspect of the store experience for all partners and customers, the contributions of John and his team in Athens have proven to be invaluable in the overall success of the online store.”
