A story about a smart chic


Demi is an Australian fashion blogger who describes herself as 'an eccentric, stingy, 21-year-old Croatian living in Brisbane City'. We describe her as the smartest shopper we've ever encountered!

In fact she's scary/smart with a passion for sharing her knowledge and tips on affordable fashion and challenging her readers to keep their outfits around the $50 mark and never over $100!

Check out  her blog and be prepared to save: http://www.carbonchic.com.au

It's been a great week - thanks to you

We've been so inspired by the amazing people we've met this week and the support we've received for Stalkthis. 


We can't thank everyone enough for the great comments and feedback you've given us this week and helping to spread the word about Stalkthis.com. There's so much energy and enthusiasm out there!

Take this fashionista for instance....

Izzy from metallicpaws.com is part of a new crop of young, smart and enthusiastic bloggers who is fast becoming an online influencer. Izzy can be best described as a 'slashy'—a final year law student from Sydney by day/amazing fashion blogger mixing old with new by night. She's what our research describes as an 'early adopter'—a digital native that's super fast to understand and embrace new technologies and new ways of doing things. She took to Stalkthis like a duck to water and quickly created shopping lists and posted this great blog about us. 


We were so grateful that we made Izzy a 'Featured Stalker' on the Inspiration page!  Over the next few weeks we'll be telling you a lot more stories about the amazing designers, manufactures, bloggers, retailers, photographers and celebrities we've met.

We hope you'll be inspired too.

Big welcome to @Chloe Morello


Happy New Year everyone. We're really excited to welcome social media entrepreneur Chloe Morello to Stalkthis as our first featured stalker. 


Chloe launched her beauty and fashion empire in March 2012 and is already hugely successful with millions of views on her YouTube channel, Facebook page and Instagram. 

We think her secret is that she's relaxed in front of the camera and makes you feel like a friend who she generously shares her beauty and fashion secrets with! 

Chloe said she's really enjoying using Stalkthis.com to make lists for the products she wants to buy and is receiving alerts when those things go on sale. 

Stalkthis.com is set to become this modern woman’s shopping buddy making sure she gets what she wants—at the price she wants to pay. You can follow Chloe's lists on Stalkthis.com and see her great work on these links below.

Stalkthis launch

It's a big day for Stalkthis.

Today is the launch of our Beta site and more than anything, we want to deliver up a social retail experience that helps you shop online —and ticks all your boxes.

To help kick off the site, we've launched a Facebook promo 
designed to get experienced online shoppers on board, help fine tune the site and load it with your favourite stores. 


So if you like what you see, please enter the competition and go into the draw to win one of your stalked items for FREE. All you have to do is join Stalkthis and tell us your 3 favourite online stores.
The more users we have, the more participating stores and a better experience all round, so please feel free to spread the word. Share, tweet away and shout it from the rooftop! 

We'd really appreciate it!
PS. In case you were wondering, Cyber Monday is the Monday after the Black Friday sales following Thanksgiving in the United States.  It's like Aussie Boxing Day sales on steroids! This year Americans will spend more that $586 billion during the Thanksgiving holiday season. Of that, a staggering $96 billion will be spent online as shoppers search for the best deal.

Aussies are passionate about online shopping

Whilst this week's launch of Click Frenzy was widely reported as an 'epic fail', one thing it proves is Australians are passionate about nabbing a bargain online.

Australia now has over 8 million online shoppers and that number is set to explode over the next few years!

There's no denying that Australians know what they want and how much they want to pay. But they're also forgiving, so inevitably Click Frenzy will recover to get on with the business of online mega sales.

Research tells us that the Stalkthis shopper is an influential and enthusiastic bargain hunter. But you're prepared to do the research, follow brands and make shopping lists to make sure you buy exactly what you want.

We LOVE that about you!

Stalkthis.com - the birth story

Welcome to our very first blog post—ever!


Over the past 12 months we have been busy building Stalkthis.com including undertaking industry research, business planning, commissioning research, prototype testing, architecture, design and the build of our beta website.

A BIG thanks goes out to our amazing team of IT specialists including Allan, Rovie, Kervi, Raffy, Cielo and Cary. You guys rock!

We're happy to report that 78% of Australians said they find Stalkthis to be appealing and will use it.  That's reassuring! They also said the most exciting feature is price tracking—where we let you know one of your products in your stalk list has gone on sale.

We are working on fine tuning this feature and uploading more websites to our database every day.

We really look forward to your feedback and working with you to make Stalkthis helpful, fun and socially engaging.

From  David, Freddie, Alexi, Michael and the team at Stalkthis.
