I survived the Batteries.com move

By StrangeWork.com: The Batteries.com warehouse/office move is officially over!

Batteries.com outside signThe warehouse servers were shutdown at 4:30pm on Thursday and back online 4 hours later. The warehouse crew spent the weekend moving over all of our products and we were testing shipments by Saturday.

Overall the warehouse move went amazingly well. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. This has been in the planning stages for about 2 months, so it’s very nice to have this done and over with.

I’m looking forward to getting back to my regular blog updates and podcasting. Next up is the BIG move to New Jersey!

Cyber Monday grows at a ridiculous rate

By StrangeWork.com: Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday is finished, and Cyber Monday is here! Cyber Monday is an exciting day for anyone working in the online retail industry.

Cyber Monday 2007Batteries.com is no exception. We see a huge spike in sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving and use Cyber Monday to really kick off our seasonal promotions. This year alone we are on track to crush last years Cyber Monday sales figures and I’m sure we are not alone.

Deal websites such as SlickDeals.net and FatWallet.com are exploding with one day only sale items all over the net. It’s amazing how big Cyber Monday has become in just 2 years since it was originally coined by Shop.org in 2005. Of course it’s no surprise why online retailers jumped on the bandwagon.
