Think Local: A Hit with Advertisers

Think Local

October was another record-breaking month for Think Local and our advertisers were the winners.

Since launching at the end of August, we have seen month-on-month growth and October saw a massive rise in onsight (commission-free) sales versus the previous month -  up 74% to be precise.

On top of that, during October we saw 98% growth in revenue generated. Given our commission-free business model, that’s 98% more revenue going straight to our advertisers.

Today, our cart abandonment rate sits at just 49%, which is exceptional for the e-commerce industry (industry average is over 70%), and our email database has increased to over 30,500 subscribers. That’s over 30,500 subscribers based on the Northern Beaches and North Shore.

Here is what some of our happy advertisers have to say about the new site:

Lilly Tancevic, Famous Hair Collaroy
“I started advertising with Think Local to increase my clientele. My business was at a stagnant point and I really needed to do something about it. A sales rep came to me and it all fell into line, so I said yes. Since then my clientele increased dramatically - we have seen a 100% increase. I don’t know where I would be without Think Local and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to increase business.”

Kelly Stoker, Red Nose Kids Cuts
"I am really happy with the results we get from Think Local. I would recommend it to any business large or small. A lot of our new customers said they always shop on Think Local."

Sally Bacon, Royal Motor Yacht Club
“We promote and advertise our events on Think Local and in the magazines. The events get emailed out and we found out that our members and non-members hear about our events through the Think Local database. We’ve found that the hits we get from Think Local have been really good.”

Despite the recent growth, November is shaping up to be another record-breaking month for us, so 2017 is looking bright for our loyal advertisers.
