Retail portal Wishlist.com.au is growing at 80 per cent a month in both sales revenue and number of orders, as more and more people take advantage of the online gift shop's presence.

Launched in June 1999, the portal claims 25,000 customers, with December 1999 giving it more than 2.5 million page impressions and 300,000 visits.

Huy Truong, Wishlist's CEO, attributes the success of the portal to its customised service and marketing strategy. "Wishlist is different in the approach it takes to shopping online, it helps customers find gifts based on occasions, age, gender, interests and the personalities of people who they are buying gifts for."

Huy also said that the portal acquires traffic by having "storefronts" on other popular portals such as Ninemsn.com.au, Melbournetoday.com.au, Yellowpages.com.au and LookSmart, as well as offline advertising.

To increase its presence on the web, it also introduced its Associates Program where organisations or individuals with a website add a Wishlist "storefront" to their site and earn a percentage of sales made at the storefront.

Wishlist has also formed partnerships with dstore.com.au, travel.com.au and greengrocer.com.au. Its partnership with dstore.com.au, for example, brings to both companies increased efficiency and market presence through the integration of back-end fulfilment, marketing strategies and technology systems.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
