Wayfair Holiday Deals
If one of your 2021 goals is to overhaul your home with very unique and beautiful items, including changing the furniture and the entire décor, then it’s time to go the Wayfair way.
Imagine the last time you shopped for furniture. Was it a good experience? Did you visit several stores before purchasing? Did you have to call your friend over to help move it?
For many of us, getting a new furniture can be a struggle. It can be hard to purchase. And if you’re thinking of going to your local furniture maker to get a new one made, it can be a lot of work, especially if you require to get everything right – from the choice of fabric and colour, to the right design. What’s more? You may have to deal with disappointments.
Considerations has to be made for comfort, style, price, and delivery method. There are few places that offered the perfect combination (and that let you do so while sitting at home in your pajamas). Wayfair is one of them.
Wayfair Inc. is an American e-commerce company that sells furniture and home-goods. Formerly known as CSN Stores, the company was founded in 2002. Their digital platform offers 14 million items from more than 11,000 global suppliers.
The company offers very unique and beautiful items. You can shop Wayfair for a zillion things home across all styles and budgets. 5000 brands of furniture, lighting, cookware, and more. Free Shipping on most items (for those in the US).
Suppliers and Consumers Market
With more than 11,000 global suppliers, Wayfair digital platform offers consumers an array of items to choose from.
For suppliers, aside from the obvious benefit of riding on Wayfair as a means to market your inventory, Wayfair provides suppliers with tools to view order monitoring in real-time through proprietary analytics software. For many suppliers, these tools provide powerful and accurate insights into each sale, which equips them to continue to grow their numbers over time. In a sense, Wayfair acts as an enabler, providing the toolset and analytical knowledge to make decisions on what products to stock and what customers like. In turn, Wayfair benefits from the supplier’s improved business strategies.
As Wayfair makes strides in enabling suppliers to easily sell via Wayfair’s platform, the consumer sees a steady increase in product selection on the storefront. That, in turn, only entices new suppliers to join, and the cycle continues. These network effects are critical to maintain Wayfair’s position in the market in being ‘all things home’.
On the site, each customer will experience the site differently. In the backend, the site is learning the preferences and interests of each shopper, and is displaying based on machine-learned preferences. While Joe may prefer beachy linens, Mary may prefer modern and bold. After a few searches, clicks, and purchases, both would be enjoying their own custom Wayfair.com experience. Ultimately Wayfair’s ability to match preferences to individual drives more sales for the company and reduces the effect of multi-homing.
In the end, you have a very happy network of suppliers who, previously, did not have access to such a large population of online shoppers. Since 2008, Wayfair has retained 72% of its original suppliers. With suppliers as the focus and technology as an enabler, Wayfair uses its platform model to continue to develop partnerships with new suppliers and to foster long term relationships that help them efficiently drive sales, and at the same time, expand the capability and selection of Wayfair.com.
