As we prepare to start getting in 09 skis in (already), I have been trying to brainstorm on what makes people buy from the websites they buy from.
Obviously, price is surely the biggest issue, but skis should be the same price everywhere, give or take a few bucks, so why do you buy from the site you buy from?
and, what kind of offers/deals outside of discounts would make you stoked? Free shirts? stickers?
I have considered offering a free hot wax on the skis before we ship them, but I didn't know how someone would feel about some dude opening their skis and touching them.. would you be stoked on that?
our website is www.decadesnow.com
We opened the shop because we wanted a shop where all kids could go in and not get vibed by the cool guy sitting at the front counter, and obviously saw the need for a twin tip only ski/snowboard shop. We have one location, here in Ogden, Utah. we are owned and operated by skiers/snowboarders/skateboarders. we don't carry any ski that isn't twin tipped, and we've been here for 4 years now. We have been soley a twin tip shop from day one.. (just some background on Decade)
Any ideas, suggestions feedback appreciated. Thanks.
