The eBags and ChannelAdvisor presentation from IRCE – ‘How to make the most from the coming comparison shopping engine changes’

June 14, 2010

Last week, I had the privilege to speak at Internet Retailer and share the stage with industry luminary / ChannelAdvisor customer, Peter Cobb @ eBags.

Wow, that show really has grown – I remember 6 years ago there were 20 booths and ~1000 attendees.  Now we fill the entire floor of the convention centre with booths and there are > 6000 attendees.

Since the talk, I’ve had literally hundreds of retailers request the deck so I thought I would put it up here as a reference to everyone that attended and those that did not.  We had only 30 minutes, but I think we jammed as much actionable information on CSEs into that 30 minutes as possible.  The presentation is pretty self explanatory, but I’ll leave you with the one highlight:  The industry is changing very rapidly and if you are relying on ‘the oldies but the goodies’ –,, etc., you need to dust off your strategy and look at some of the up-and-coming CSE 2.0 companies to balance out your strategy.
