Interview With FirstIn:
Q1. What is the best deal you’ve ever offered?
FirstIn Says: “Selling out the site in 90 minutes on a computer sale in November last year was a standout day. We had a collection of desktops, notebooks & netbooks which were all gone at 11.30am.”
Q2. What is the fastest you’ve sold out of something?
FirstIn Says: “We regularly have stock which sells out within the first few hours. In March, we moved through 100 film scanners in under 20 minutes. That’s why is pays to sign up for your daily email, so you never miss out!”
Q3. What is the hardest thing about running your business?
FirstIn Says: “We source the globe to find products that our customers would enjoy and benefit from. Having been in this game for 5 years, we know many of our customers personally. Our duty to our customers is to have 4 great products every day that are of interest. This is a constant challenge, but something we love doing. Our mission is to excite our loyal and new customers everyday when they open their First In email at 10am.”
Q4. How are you going to “shake things up” this year?
FirstIn Says: “We have a number of new events planned for 2010 – there is no point telling you now, it would spoil the surprise :. People should always expect First In to have great technology at the best price. This will not change. We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and listen to our customers to bring them the best technology and computer deals in the country.”
Q5. What are the 3 best reasons why customers should buy from you instead of the competition?
- “We are specialists in technology, it is what we know and what we love – Adam, our buyer, is the Gadget Guy on TVNZ Good Morning Show, and he was voted the 2008 IT Rockstar. We get a real kick out of sourcing good quality tech gear
- We always state our delivery costs on our product pages, so you know the total cost of your purchase upfront
- If you have any questions, just give us a call, we have a dedicated customer service team. You can trust First In. First In was the original daily deals site, founded in 2004″
