Site.com (PCS) brings a new alternative to the online shopper. The PCS portal is a combination shopping search engine, store directory and catalog all in one. It differs from mainstream shopping sites by enabling the user access to hard to find boutique goods and services in addition to mainstream market items. The PCS interface acts as a bridge between merchants and consumers who would otherwise never find these resources using traditional search engines due to the competition of specialized micro-niches.
The PCS portal offers both physical and digital products in 42 categories including but not limited to Beauty, Health and Wellness; Clothing and Accessories, Computers and Software, Electronics, Video and Online Gaming, and Audio and Video Equipment.
The website also brandishes a Digital Marketplace for consumers to buy and immediately download ‘how to’ information and software. This resource is for the consumer who has a direct informational need on how to lose weight, quit smoking, acquire or maintain a relationship, earn money online, saving money information, investment and stock trading strategies and more.
By joining PCS, members can access the coupons section which saves them money immediately, as well as join groups and categories to share information about tips, tricks, product reviews and more. As such, the social aspect of the PCS is showing daily growth in membership. Members can also take advantage of the concierge service. The service uses human beings to perform product and information searches for the members, and deliver the recommended shopping results via email.
The PCS portal also shares its QR code for people on the move, and has a ‘Tell-A-Friend’
feature for the user/members to invite their associates and share their findings.
PCS is designed around the concept of balancing consumers’ money with the value of their time. As such, the portal is not supported by advertising which directs attention away from the users’ shopping goals, thereby maximizing valuable visual page-space. As a result, any revenues derived from advertising space are forgone for the convenience of the consumer.
Site.com is the brainchild of founder Michael E. Kinlow and reflects his “Premium Service for Sophisticated Shoppers” mantra. Believing that in today’s economic climate, time has more of a premium value than ever before, so the consumer must have an intelligent resource for their online shopping saving them not only their time, but also their money.
