    Next time around there shouldn't be a need for retailers to go through a 3rd party like Click Frenzy. The event should be public and not mandated by any one entity, especially one that is collecting email addresses for no real reason.

    But did you look at the "deals" ?

    Nothing exceptional in my view.

    Not sure what you mean by "should be public", they are running a business like all the other companies involved. Given the enormous success of this I'd imagine those retailers will be signing up again.

    Yeah I agree 100%.

    also an interesting article made a few weeks ago on the site around email privacy:

    but they still managed to squeeze a pretty penny from the retailers...so here is their business model:

    1 reg a domain
    2 spread the word around...how did they get all the media involved? That was the winning factor.

    3 charge $$$$$ the retailers

    4 the rest...who cares about it...lol.


    Anyone of us could have done it...and done it better I guess.

    Yeah right.

    If this was a domainer site it would 2 paragraphs of lousy text ,some adsense ads plus 2 visitors consisting of the site owner & google bot. I'm sure the trusty dreamhost account with have withstood the "traffic barrage" just fine though.

    I don't recall every second person rushing out to buy vegemite 2.0.

    Seems the larger retailers are happy with the result,

    Lastly this is probably the most revealing,

    So it seem the level of interest was way beyond what most retailers thought they'd get. I'm guessing the "refunds" are going to be limited.

    i don't want another "trampoline thread" so i will just say this and i'm out, then lets see what happens in the future.

    STINKS of media spin, i suspect advertisers were told this is what would happen beforehand and thus gain millions of free media for the website and future promotions, the future brand exposure value of the website would go up and all participants had their publicity strategies ready for this morning, no doubt the newspapers/media were in on it as well eg: harvey norman would have said " HERALD SUN... do this article or ELSE .......... we pull some advertising".

    its been done many times before but they did this really well, helena is now talking about the next one so it was a short lived disappointment.

    just my opinion, time will tell if i am right or wrong and i really don't care either way.

    This whole event and the way it was organised just baffles me. Be interesting to see how next year turns out, and whether CF will exist or *hopefully* retailers just come together and follow the Cyber Monday model, sans middleman.
