2010 was extra good to CSN Stores. This year they climbed up the rankings from 63 to 61 of the top 500 Internet Retailers by Internet Retailer Magazine. That is in contrast to some other companies who compete with the retail internet giant! They haven't seen the success or growth that CSNStores.com has!
I believe there are several reasons for the success of this entity! First of all, the stores have a great rapport with the blogging community! They have been and continue to be very generous with bloggers who can write a decent review of the stores. They give the bloggers a choice--basically they can either receive a gift certificate to write a post or bloggers may host a giveaway for their audience. Most bloggers are aware of the great giveaways that CSNStores is able to drive and that, in turn, creates a loyal following!
Next, CSNStores.com is very highly ranked on the Google Search site. For instance, if you want or need a Bed, you can put out a search for that and most likely you will see at the top of the search results BedroomFurniture.com, which is one of the over 200 CSN Stores! It is really quite remarkable how CSN began with only two employees, Naraj Shah and Steve Conine in 2002, and now boasts over 600 employees, making it one of the top three home and office goods e-tailers in the United States!
Yet another reason for their great success is their great customer service! I have seen many people praise the customer service department for either giving them great prices because CSN wants to be competitive with any and all competition or for accepting exchanges and returns cheerfully without a lot of hassle. When I placed an order for my laptop messenger bag, it came within a few days and I was very happy with the quality! And the price was right!
I'm excited for a couple of reasons! First of all, I will be opening up another great $75 giveaway very soon and I always like the hustle bustle that these events generate on my blog! I'm also really excited because CSN will be opening up a really large branch of their retail store in my state of Utah! It will employ over 250 people with benefits. Thanks so much CSNStores.com!
