News-Antique.com - May 04,2009 - Garden City, New York - May 4, 2009 - TIAS.com today reported that merchant sales at their online antiques & collectibles mall increased by just over 19% last month, when compared to the same period in 2008. Since late March of 2009 TIAS has been actively soliciting new customers with online marketing campaigns, as well as airing television ads following PBS's "Antiques Roadshow" in key U.S. markets.
The new marketing campaigns are targeted towards increasing consumer awareness of the TIAS.com antiques and collectibles mall. As a reslt of the ongoing campaign, many consumers who were not previously aware of the 14 year old company are now visiting it for the first time.
"With the global recession putting tremendous pressure on Internet antiques & collectibles dealers, we decided that we needed to put some substantial resources into helping the merchants who have supported us for so many years." said Phillip Davies President of TIAS.com "We were expecting to see an increase in sales, but to see an average revenue increase of 19% in just one month was quite a surprise."
The marketing campaign to reach new consumers is expected to continue into at least the 2nd quarter of 2009. TIAS.com is also scheduled to launching some very significant new services for both merchants and consumers in the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2009.
