Making The Most Of “Out Of Stock”

It sucks when an interested customer stumbles on your site only to discover that the item they were just about to buy is out to stock.

This morning I was reading the hugely popular Outblush blog where they profiled Karacoma Sofa.  After reading the article I visited conranusa.com and realized the product was “Temporarily out of stock”.

I wish the message would have said “Temporarily out of stock — drop your email address and be the first to be notified upon availability”.

This would be a win win for the retailer, either they would get a future sale or walk away with the consolation price of my contact information.
