CondoMania Web Site Experiences Growth in Online Holiday Sales
CondoMania.com, which calls itself the "first Web site to promote safe sex," ended the holiday season with a 67% increase in year-end sales, a "big jump" from last year's holiday figures, Investor's Business Daily reports. CondoMania is a four-year-old company that sells about 300 brands of condoms that come with free information on safe sex. Adam Glickman, CondoMania's founder and CEO, attributed the site's success to the fact that CondoMania does not sell pornography, noting, "People want to educate themselves about these products without running into other products that they might find offensive." Last holiday season, sales increased by 15%. Glickman attributes this year's boom to several factors, including the site's "improved
customer-service features," which have "turned more browsers into buyers." The company sells about 2.5 million condoms a year (Barlas, Investor's Business Daily, 1/4).
