’s Mike Dorsey Continues the Conversation about Online Shopping! PT #3

This is part 3 of the podcast interview with’s Mike Dorsey!

The conversation is a continuation of the exploration of the site as well as key segments, sectors within the site and lots more. Where the conversation takes off from there– you just have to listen to it because it’s pretty interesting.

More information about

The site makes it easy to buy by linking all items through for ease of purchase at the best possible prices (we hope that they are always the best possible prices. I did do some checking on this and the buying power of Amazon is such that they do have serious bargaining power to get great prices.) Some though aren’t any lower than most spots for some items.

The partnership with allows you to “pin” those things that caught your eye to your list on that site (in case you forget what it was you were looking at or forgot where to buy it) as well as share it with others on pinterest. It’s taking shopping to an entirely new social level– sharing it with others in real time via mobile as well as via the site post facto. It brings engagement to the brand, the site and you personally in terms of what you are shopping for to “everyone” that’s part of your network, and also pinterest.

We got into this discussion about the function and evolution of the site since this is pretty new and wound up taking again about products. I suggested a couple of categories that were missing (sports gear for shoes, equipment and clothing as well as men’s grooming) and things like cameras, tablets (I have the Nook Color, that I would have held off buying had I known their tablet was that imminent.). Here are a couple of more things that Mike Dorsey and I talked about in this podcast that were on

This close to Christmas– you MUST check this out– if only to find out where things you have purchased rank.

The book that’s a great idea for the mixologist and the random cook that I am

The book I have bought but not yet read and desperately should be!

My iPod died– the first generation video model that was a gift from an appreciative brand- and I had to replace it. I don’t use an iPhone! (l o n g story) . So I replaced it with the largest iPod I could find. I wanted a Nano but I had more music than a Nano could hold. The “touch” would have been 50% full with what I had on my original iPod.. so it was “classic” or nothing.

The array of cameras and other things– fashion to fragrance, toys to tabletop, music to menswear is amazing. You need to be checking out Giftideator.comm today if you have ANY shopping left to do. You might not be able to get it to the person in time or at least you can hunt down what stores to shop, call and put items on hold and then spend LESS TIME shopping.

Thanks so much to Mike Dorsey from for all his time. As you can tell, we had a pretty good time talking about the site and its’ contents. This most likely won’t be the last time that you see or Mike Dorsey on this site.
