Advertisers who have collectively spent more than $1 million on advertising for the Click Frenzy discount event will no doubt be questioning their decision after the campaign's site crashed last night after failing to handle the massive influx of traffic.

Some retailers are already questioning whether the deal was worth the spending. Adore Beauty chief executive Kate Morris told SmartCompany today she hasn't recouped her advertisings costs, and is "extremely disappointed" with how the sale went.

That sentiment is likely to be echoed across the retail industry today.

Geesh this makes me laugh.  What a circus.  Seems the in patients at the institutions have been let loose, including those form DJs.  As an exercise in project management and stockholder value creation, this is a FAIL. What a laughing stock this has been.  Harvey (online own goal) Norman... whats left to say really.

I wrote an analyst report on HVN back in June/July when it was trading at 1.96. What a joke of a company. Old management stuck in the 20th century. It was hard finding anything good that warranted an investment in the company. It was trading at book value. I am suprised no one has bought it out and just sold the assets? Now it is down at $1.815.

Poor project management at it's best. How they failed to predictive model the effect increased traffic would have on their servers is beyond me. Whichever company ran Click Frenzy really needs to either; hire people with IT strategy/database management and sysadmin skills or contract it out to Consultants if they want to continue trading as a going concern.

The sad thing is that a company probably exists which would effectively run a very successful Click Frenzy campaign but won't get the opportunity as retailers are even more jaded than before.

Michael - as you know HN - well Gerry Harvey -( I don't know their exact structure - I suspect Gerry and his missus have neatly put the solid assets in their name and the liabilities in the shareholders name) - is slightly valuable because of the land and buildings. Mostly in good big box areas. But the whole franchise model is very rickety and his retail model is more old skool than Myers etc. Its only a matter of time.

If Bunnings/Officeworks move into big box household - and it would be an easy move - he'll be talking* to KordaMentha before you can say dodgy racing industry or import tax.

edit:: and bleating all over a compliant media about unfair treatment - GST/imports customers, government etc

LOL I was just shit stirring.. Collar gap seems to be one of those things that will happen to everyone at some point or another.

A bit like this gem from Oscar Wilde: "No object is so beautiful that, under certain conditions, it will not look ugly."

Power Retail, the company behind Click Frenzy, post an article about how damaging online retail is to the envrionment; http://www.powerretail.com.au/operations/the-environmental-impact-of-online-retail/

Yes, because the carbon footprint of developing a retail store with a parking lot and associated power costs is much more sustainable than servers running.

The wait time on burgundy calf Alden tassels was going to be longer than I was willing to wait, so I opted for brown.

I'll be receiving these soon.



Does anyone know what method of postage BB use? USPS? UPS? DHL?

Gents, just came across this after the director of the film started following me on twitter. Might kick in a few bucks and see how it turns out.

And here is the kickstarter campaign: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1508357355/men-of-the-cloth-humble-men-who-make-exalted-cloth

 

No affiliation with the movie from my end in case any one was wondering.

Hi TBM,

 

THey've always used FedEx when I've ordered from them. Best they've done is 3 days to my door.

Mine is a lot faster than that. Doesn't she get tired after the first day?

Thanks guys. I'm impatiently waiting to wear them everywhere, get them beat up and then spend an episode of Dexter polishing them up nicely.

EDIT: Except when Hannah McKay is on screen. Then I'm looking at the screen not my shoes.
