TurboSquid Catalog Reaches 200,000 Mark
(New Orleans, LA – July 29, 2008) – TurboSquid, the world's largest online marketplace for stock 3D models, is pleased to announce that they have reached the 200,000 mark in number of unique products for sale.
The TurboSquid.com product catalog has increased steadily since TurboSquid's launch in 2000. At that time, the idea of a website where artists could buy and sell 3D content was new. 3D artists and other graphics professionals quickly embraced the concept, and now everything from 3D tractor-trailers to detailed anatomical parts can be found at TurboSquid.
The figure of 200,000 products is only the tip of the iceberg, says Michele Bousquet, Director of Marketing at TurboSquid. "That's just the number of individual catalog items," she says. "Some of them contain multiple files and textures. For example, a collection of cars might contain 14 cars. The total number of all items is actually over 900,000."
TurboSquid credits its success to its comprehensive customer support system. “Better support means more purchases, since customers often want to discuss a purchase before making it," says Bousquet. “The high sales attract more artists to the site to post their work for sale. This increases our catalog, which in turn brings more customers. It's a successful loop that serves our marketplace very well." TurboSquid recently added 24/7 Live Chat support to its existing system of telephone support and 24/7 Support Tickets.
