We’re back from last week’s Online Retailer expo and happy to report that it was a resounding success. There were heaps of great presentations, talks, and we managed to stickybeak on a couple of cool seminar sessions as well. We also have a winner for our giveaway: Nigel Ewart from WeAreDigital – there’s a brand new iPad™ headed your way, congratulations! We’d like to thank everyone that visited the booth to say “Hi”, old and new customers alike, it was lovely to catch up with you and wish you success in your online endeavours and look forward to coming back next year.
Congratulations to James Craig from Adimise, he’s the winner of our recent customer support feedback survey. Many thanks to everyone who responded. We got some great answers from the feedback, which we’ll be using to decide how to improve our offerings, and create fantastic new ones.
Ooh, a package from Amazon! That must be the 100 copies of Unix Network Programming that we ordered to give away to underprivileged children. Aww man, it’s just an AR Drone. 🙁 This must be the one we’re giving away at The Internet Show next week. That’s pretty cool I guess. As a bonus, Amazon also include nine metres of packing paper. Our Windows sysadmins are going to paint it up into a giant nyancat and string it around the office.
There’s been a lot of changes going on at Anchor recently and we’d really love to know how we’re doing. To help us know what you think is important, we’d appreciate it if you take a look at our feedback survey. The calculator-monkeys tell me it’ll take you less than 10 minutes to fill out. In fact, the average human takes about 7.26 minutes for this survey, you should see if you can beat them. In return, you could win a New iPad™. Fill out our feedback survey now! We’ve had a great response from those customers that have already entered. If you’re one of them, thank you very much. If you haven’t yet, we hope you will. We’ll be using your feedback to figure out what we should direct…
Thanks to everyone who came along to Silicon Beach last Friday and entered the draw, it was great to see a good turnout and have a chat with everyone. As promised, we’ve drawn the winner: TJ Tan at Moojive, you’re up! Anchor is a big believer in helping startups get off the ground, which is why we stump up for a few beers at Silicon Beach. Oh, and we’re also putting $500 towards Moojive’s startup bills. Congratulations, guys! 🙂
As mentioned in our previous post, Anchor have spent this week at the Online Retailer Expo . While we were too busy talking to attendees to catch any of the seminars, we had a smashing time! The width and breadth of online initiatives that we saw at the event (at other booths and through conversation) promises a bright future for Australian consumers. Personally we’ll be happy to get our online purchases come from a local address rather than having to deal with customs, however I digress. While at the event Anchor gave away not one, but two iPad-2s!! The allure of surfing net and media from the comfort of your couch (or really, anywhere, be it bus or bed) was great as we saw just about everyone who passed stop to drop…
