We want to hear which sites you think deserve inclusion in the Hot 100 list.
Every year we spend hours and hours scouring the web to find the most innovative retail sites. Then our editorial team dissects each nominated site and debates whether it is worthy of inclusion in our annual Hot 100 list.
The list, which aims to highlight innovation in online retailing, could feature anything from a retailer recognizing that its customers are strapped for cash and, to help, offers a one-click option to pay in three installments, to a merchant grouping its SKUs in terms of which items Facebook users clicked that they Like.
The list aims to offer a cross-section of the web that includes some of the largest e-retailers, as well as medium-sized and smaller players.
Right now we’re in the midst of compiling this year’s list. But we know that we can’t possibly uncover every site that is offering a new level of service, features, functions and online experience.
That’s where you come in. We’d love to hear which sites you think deserve in inclusion in our annual Hot 100 issue, which appears in our December issue. To nominate a site, please e-mail me at Zak@verticalwebmedia.com. But hurry—we need your nominations by Sept. 7.
