Stalkthis launch

It's a big day for Stalkthis.

Today is the launch of our Beta site and more than anything, we want to deliver up a social retail experience that helps you shop online —and ticks all your boxes.

To help kick off the site, we've launched a Facebook promo 
designed to get experienced online shoppers on board, help fine tune the site and load it with your favourite stores. 

So if you like what you see, please enter the competition and go into the draw to win one of your stalked items for FREE. All you have to do is join Stalkthis and tell us your 3 favourite online stores.
The more users we have, the more participating stores and a better experience all round, so please feel free to spread the word. Share, tweet away and shout it from the rooftop! 

We'd really appreciate it!
PS. In case you were wondering, Cyber Monday is the Monday after the Black Friday sales following Thanksgiving in the United States.  It's like Aussie Boxing Day sales on steroids! This year Americans will spend more that $586 billion during the Thanksgiving holiday season. Of that, a staggering $96 billion will be spent online as shoppers search for the best deal.

Aussies are passionate about online shopping

Whilst this week's launch of Click Frenzy was widely reported as an 'epic fail', one thing it proves is Australians are passionate about nabbing a bargain online.

Australia now has over 8 million online shoppers and that number is set to explode over the next few years!

There's no denying that Australians know what they want and how much they want to pay. But they're also forgiving, so inevitably Click Frenzy will recover to get on with the business of online mega sales.

Research tells us that the Stalkthis shopper is an influential and enthusiastic bargain hunter. But you're prepared to do the research, follow brands and make shopping lists to make sure you buy exactly what you want.

We LOVE that about you!

Sunday, November 11, 2012 - the birth story

Welcome to our very first blog post—ever!

Over the past 12 months we have been busy building including undertaking industry research, business planning, commissioning research, prototype testing, architecture, design and the build of our beta website.

A BIG thanks goes out to our amazing team of IT specialists including Allan, Rovie, Kervi, Raffy, Cielo and Cary. You guys rock!

We're happy to report that 78% of Australians said they find Stalkthis to be appealing and will use it.  That's reassuring! They also said the most exciting feature is price tracking—where we let you know one of your products in your stalk list has gone on sale.

We are working on fine tuning this feature and uploading more websites to our database every day.

We really look forward to your feedback and working with you to make Stalkthis helpful, fun and socially engaging.

From  David, Freddie, Alexi, Michael and the team at Stalkthis.
