#BWE09 – Touring Zappos
On the first day of Blogworld, I headed to South Hall, got my badge, then – since I didn’t have the full pass and couldn’t watch sessions on day one – sat outside talking to the people to see what was going on. I ran into Brett from Mashable, Marla and Liz. They were congregating, talking about going somewhere. I thought it was just going to lunch at first, but when the Zappos bus showed up, I knew there was something more.
Zappos sells shoes online. They also sell other items like handbags, clothing and housewears – but they are known best for the shoes. So it was exciting to see a company that relies solely on the internet to build their business. After all, many other companies started with a physical store.
The tour was a lot of fun. I could talk about it, but I made a video. So check it out:
