Terapeak Attends AfterBuy BBQ in Germany

We had a great time at the AfterBuy.com BBQ a few weeks ago.  We had the chance to speak with many eBay sellers in Germany and learn from their experience how research can be applied to their online businesses.  Terapeak’s full focus on research has helped us be able to listen to online merchant’s feedback on how research can truly help their businesses succeed. 

You can see some pictures of the event, our booth, and of our presentation in our flicker page.

 Also, congradulations AfterBuy.com for the successful acquisition by eBay.de.  We wish you all the best and look forward to our continued partnership!
