After more than a decade of operation, Selector relaunched in September 2009 with a new, up-to-the-minute look and user interface. With RSS feeds, Facebook and Twitter integration, and a clear and dynamic visual appearance, Selector is the most user-friendly and technologically advanced site in its class – the best way for specifiers in Australia to find products for their projects.
Feedback from users has been extremely positive, and the new site has seen Selector double traffic in the past year. We’ve added hundreds of businesses to our directory, and record over 75,000 visits every month, from over 60,000 users who come looking for products. This makes Selector an ideal way for suppliers to reach a large, targeted audience of industry professionals.
To celebrate the new Selector’s first birthday, we’re launching the first mobile-optimized product website in Australia that’s specifically designed for architects, interior designers, landscape architects and other building industry professionals. This new version has been designed for touch screen control on the iPhone and other modern smartphones.
Selector now puts thousands of products in the palm of your hand, wherever you are.
You can use your phone to view the site at a glance without zooming, and search and navigate product listings with intuitive taps and gestures. Image galleries are presented in an animated slideshow you can flick through with a swipe of your fingertips.
To use the mobile version, just visit selector.com on your device – you’ll see the tailored version automatically. If you’re on an iPhone, a prompt on your first visit gives you instructions on how to add Selector to your home screen for easy access alongside the apps you use every day.
Other features that we’ve added in the past year include dedicated pages for latest products and supplier news, further refinements to the site’s appearance, and a free option to add your own business details to our supplier directory at any time. If you haven’t visited in a while, now’s a great time to stop by and take a look at what’s new.
As always, you can subscribe to Selector’s free online newsletter to have the latest products and industry news delivered to your inbox every Tuesday. Sign up today at selector.com/au/newsletter.
