Canton, Mich.— RepairClinic.com®, the trusted online store for replacement parts and free repair help for home appliances, outdoor power equipment and heating and cooling equipment, today announced it has been named in Internet Retailer magazine’s 2015 Hot 100 list, which annually honors the world’s best retail websites for innovation.
“The merchants represented in the Hot 100 do the things they do differently or do them better than their competitors,” the Internet Retailers editors explained in the magazine’s December 2014 issue. “Editors and researchers spend months evaluating and compiling a list of the most innovative, creative and effective e-retail websites based on their experience as well as industry experts’ opinions.”
Internet Retailer cited RepairClinic.com’s 2,000+ free how-to repair videos and reliable troubleshooting content as the leading reason the website was included in this year’s list.
“The site aims to offer consumers easy-to-follow instructions, as well as the required parts,” the Internet Retailer editors explained. “Videos are geared to consumers with little experience doing repairs.”
The how-to videos, which empower homeowners to complete DIY appliance, outdoor power equipment and heating and cooling equipment repairs, are a major component of RepairClinic.com’s comprehensive troubleshooting and how-to repair help system on its website.
Produced weekly by an in-house team, the videos are available for free viewing on the company’s website and YouTube channel. The videos are promoted via the company’s social networks and integrated into the company’s website, blog and email content.
This honor comes on the heels of several other recognitions for the company in 2014. This year, RepairClinic celebrates 15 years in business and three and a half million customers who have saved an estimated $260 million in repair costs by fixing things on their own.
In June, the International Association of Business Communications (IABC) Detroit chapter awarded RepairClinic with a 2014 Renaissance Award of Excellence and the prestigious Digital Communication Best of Show award for the company’s more than 780 how-to videos produced in 2013.
Since 2010, RepairClinic how-to videos have been viewed more than 36 million times.
