CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- uBid.com sister site, RedTag.com has re-launched with an exciting new content direction and a completely updated customer experience.
Traditionally a "Daily Deal" site with limited fixed-price merchandise offerings, RedTag.com now features weekly sales "Events," including extreme values on product collections across a variety of categories, such as Home Goods, Fashion, Electronics, Jewelry, Gadgets and Technology. Leveraging the buying power and equity of parent company uBid Holdings, Inc., the items featured in RedTag's Events are "buy now" priced at well below retail value, running up to 75 percent off.
"The essence of RedTag.com is to provide great products at significant discounts that appeal to a wide demographic," said Scott Koerner, president and CEO of uBid Holdings, Inc. "Our objective with this fresh and easy-to-navigate site was to dramatically improve the customer experience. The changes – offering a broad array of categories, along with our Daily Deals - reflect a key move as we continue to evolve and grow RedTag.com."
The new RedTag.com also features a completely revamped user experience and feel. The site will continue to highlight its "Deal of the Day," one high-value, heavily discounted item offered each day, now with a countdown clock to motivate buyers to act quickly so they won't miss out on big savings. There's also a callout directing users to uBid.com's "Auctions Closing Soon" where shoppers can opt to jump in on last minute auction-based offers.
Since the changes went into effect, the site has already seen record breaking traffic and sales increases, along with a significant uptick in site registrations.
"Our customers have provided great feedback on the new site updates and direction, and we'll continue to develop new ways to exceed their expectations," said Koerner.
