For Immediate Release
Internet Retailer Magazine Ranks Styles Logistics, Inc. as One of the Top 1000 Fastest Growing E-Retailers in the U.S.
Styles Logistics, Inc. (SkyGeek) Ranks 798 according to Internet Retailer’s 2013 Second 500 Guide and Eighth in the Merchandising Category (Automotive Parts/Accessories)
LaGrangeville, New York – July 17, 2013 – Countless small business e-retailers know that competition on the Internet is fierce. An unfortunate reality: Cyberspace can be merciless and unforgiving and if sales slump, a company will be lost in the void. But alas, a rising star emerges and that star’s name is SkyGeek.
SkyGeek’s sales for fiscal year 2012 have garnered the attention of Internet Retailer. In recognition of the company’s continuing efforts to sell over 140,000 items while maintaining expedient shipment of packages and excellent customer service, Internet Retailer has listed SkyGeek at #798 for their 2013 Second 500 Guide. In addition, SkyGeek ranks eighth under the magazine’s Merchandising Category, specifically under “Automotive Parts/Accessories.”
Steven Styles, President of Styles Logistics, Inc. as well as “Chief Geek” for SkyGeek, was pleased with the rankings. “This is fantastic news for our business. It shows that we can compete and we can do it well. We’ve got a great staff at our headquarters that are willing to find innovative solutions to problems we face daily, all while translating the benefits of our operations onto the people we serve.”
Part of the reason for making the list can be attributed to SkyGeek’s willingness to establish not only rock-solid core competencies—especially an open mind and an active responsiveness to customers’ inquiries—but also partnerships with third party businesses such as Exclusive Concepts and Nextopia. These partnerships have bolstered marketing strategies and refined the functionality of the SkyGeek website, all while increasing revenue considerably.
Despite a less than stellar economy, in the last year SkyGeek has increased its full-time employee staff by over 25 percent to meet the demands on quality assurance that customers now expect.
And even though Styles is happy, he and his company are not ones to rest on their laurels. “We’re constantly looking for ways to improve. Our business model will evolve so our goals are met efficiently. The content, layout, and features on our site will get better and we will move forward.”
One aspect of this improvement is in social media, where SkyGeek has begun creating content more consistently. By next year, they aim to revitalize their blog, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Along with other strategies, this will be implemented so that by 2014, the company is positioned further up among Internet Retailer’s ranks.
SkyGeek is grateful to Internet Retailer for publishing the company’s elevated status among the online landscape and wishes to extend its thanks to their loyal and expanding customer base for making this accomplishment possible.
