We released our first official press release to the masses today; always before we chose a few select papers to contact, but this time we went all out. What the heck, life is short, right? So here it is, in all its glory:
or for the lazy:
CINCINNATI, OH - May 1, 2006 (INB) – Giftsforengineers.com (www.giftsforengineers.com) has expanded their product mix to over 300 unique items specifically for engineers. The site currently offers gifts of all kinds, from t-shirts and coffee mugs, to books and gadgets. Top sellers include items such as a “Geek Man Action Figure,” a paperweight that looks like a crumpled blueprint, a box of chocolates formed in the shape of engineering tools, and a clock that is made from a recycled circuit board. The site emphasizes a rich online shopping experience and excellent customer service by offering incentives such as 2-day shipping for $4.95, a free gift with every order, a money back guarantee, online customer service chat, and customer reviews of products.
This e-commerce venture has been operational since 2001 and while it has experienced growth every year, 2005 offered the biggest growth spurt by far for the small company. The continued success of the store can be attributed to its unique offering of gifts tailored especially for engineers of every focus, as well as the emphasis on providing outstanding customer service. Inflection Point, Inc. is the parent company and is a privately held, woman-owned corporation.
Elizabeth Naramore, Vice President Web Development, admits that the company is bursting through its seams. “We are at a definite crossroads with the company’s growth and plan on expanding to space three times what we currently occupy. In 2006, we also plan on increasing the number of products even more and adding additional functionality to the site such as wish lists, loyalty purchase programs and an online gift selector to assist our customers in choosing just the right gift for their engineer.”
The site has previously been featured in the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Dallas Morning News. Inflection Point, Inc. is a member of the Better Business Bureau’s Online Program.
We’re so “corporate”
