This week will see some significant enhancements to the RedBalloon offering…. All of the innovations that we will announce this week have all been driven by our single minded purpose: ‘RedBalloon is changing gifting in Australia forever’.
Over the past five years this sense of purpose has driven much of our innovation in our Corporate team, our gift card offering through retailers (including Coles just announced which takes us to about 3000 retail outlets), our gift box range – which means great experiences can be delivered to the recipient.
When we say the ‘gifting in Australia’ this includes rural Australia – and in many regional towns there simply is not the supply of experiences that we have in the city – so we have to send experiences to them – from international beer tastings to astrology readings…
Last year we saw our innovation into retail – with Myer, Big W and Target taking our gift packs, which include gift cards in a gift box with a catalog of experiences.
We need to be wherever gifting decisions take place, which is why I’m excited to see that our site optimised for iPhone and other mobile devices has shipped.
Browse M.redballoon.com.au on your iPhone or mobile device and you’ll go to a version of our website especially for mobile browsing. It has quite a nifty ‘refine’ function that makes searching by location, price and gift especially easy. Congratulations to Peter, Khoa, Alex, Roneel, Joel and the team at Nomad for making this happen.
