Internet Retailer Hot 100 for 2008

Hot 100Every year, Internet Retailer releases its list of stand out retailers. Last year there were 50, this year 100.

Rather than highlighting who’s doing the most volume, the Internet Retailer Hot 100 list focuses on innovators and includes smaller retailers like Bestkiteboarding.com, chains, catalogers, online-only and brands like M&M’s.

Matt over at Ecommerce Optimization categorized the list and added some nifty graphs.

I’m not sure how much social media marketing was a factor in choosing the top 100. One thing I can’t figure out is how Walmart made the list and Target was shut out, even though Target clearly won the Facebook war…

I want to include my personal shout-outs to Zappos.com for their incredible customer service, Threadless.com for fostering great community and for their impressive blog following.

Congratulations to all the top 100 this year.
