It’s that time again – shoppers’ email inboxes around Australia are filling up with seductive reminders to take advantage of unique online specials being offered by retailers all over Australia during the next Click Frenzy. Whether you’re already involved or plan to be, it’s probably time your online store had a readiness check-up. Are you ready?
Statistics (Quantium, 2012) show that participating retailers experienced a high volume of sales during Click Frenzy – on average 2.5 times higher than their previous biggest sales day! According to IBM research, online sales during Click Frenzy were 37% bigger than Boxing Day. To successfully take part, you’ll need sufficient stock, fulfilment and delivery timeframes that meet Click Frenzy’s requirements – and a site that loads fast, looks great and provides a smooth, easy customer experience.
So here’s something to celebrate. The team at DI are a talented bunch and we’d like to tell you about JiraTracker – an app that one of our Atlassian Jira experts has recently created for Windows phones.
DI Senior Engineer Gabriel Garcia (aka Gaby) wanted to come up with a way to view and post to the DI Jira instance while he was on the move.
Atlassian’s Jira is a tool that helps the team here at DI work more productively on internal and client projects.
‘I wanted to take that up a notch and create an App that would let me stay in touch with important issues no matter where I am.’
As your online business grows and your customers become more sophisticated in their use of online technology and services, you’ll probably find yourself needing to upgrade or even completely replace your website. If your site is not serving your customers, it’s not serving your business. Even when you’re clear about your site’s goals there are still some common traps that are very easy to fall into. Spare yourself some pain by keeping these four key things in mind – from planning to completion and beyond.
It’s all too easy to start thinking about your new website by thinking about your current website. Free your business
When planning your new site, your focus should be what you want the site to achieve for your business. Step away from your current site and spend some time taking a fresh look at what triggers your customers to purchase, and what keeps them coming back multiple times to purchase from you.

Design Industries Atlassian Experts will be attending the The Atlassian Summit Preview in Sydney on 4 September.
The preview is a kind of mini-summit – a preview of the Atlassian Summit in San Francisco on 1-3 October – with valuable behind-the-scenes insights into how to make the most of Atlassian tools such as Jira, Confluence, GreenHopper, Crowd, Bamboo and more.
The Atlassian Summit preview will provide a unique opportunity for Design Industries web project and development experts to get the good oil on optimising Atlassian products. In a series of sessions on the day, Atlassian product teams will speak on a range of subjects, including migrating to Git, JIRA best practices, integrations between Atlassian products, and much more.
