Black Friday 2016: Record Breaking Year!

December 2nd, 2016

Graph on computer in Coffee ShopYear after year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue to be the BIGGEST online shopping days of the year and this year wasn’t any different. In fact, these shopping days broke some records!

Adobe has been gathering information from the 22.6 BILLION visits to websites during this Holiday Shopping Season and found some interesting things.

  1. There were actually more online shoppers on Black Friday than Cyber Monday this year. $3.34 BILLION dollars was spent shopping online for Black Friday and if you include the shopping that was done on Thanksgiving, that equals $5.27 BILLION.
  2. More people shopped using their mobile devices. Black Friday 2016 became the first day in retail history to drive over $1.2 BILLION dollars in sales from mobile devices, mainly smartphones!
  3. Retailers that invested in mobile, email and social marketing saw 30% more sales and 25% higher average orders.
  4. Retailers that used Shopper Helper Sites like RetailMeNot and CNET saw a 16.5% share of sales.
  5. Promotional emails about Black Friday showed 17.8% share of sales.
  6. There was quite a bit of traffic from search ads and direct traffic to the retailers websites, these numbers dropped, even though it is still the largest contributor of the online sales. Sales from search ads dropped 4.3% and direct traffic sales dropped 9.6%.
  7. Customers spent more on Thanksgiving Day this year than last. Sales increased by 11.5%

Adobe measures 80% of ALL online transactions from the top 100 US retailers, more than any other technology company, and uses its proven predictive model to forecast online sales and trends. $7.50 out of every $10.00 spent online with the top 500 US retailers goes through Adobe Marketing Cloud. This amazing amount of data puts Adobe at the top to deliver accurate online sales totals and trends, but of course, they do keep in mind the importance of good data management with companies like https://blog.couchbase.com/spring-security-oauth2_authentication/.

Did you see growth on these shopping days for your online store? If not, you should start thinking about strategies for the next major shopping holiday.

Valentine’s Day is another big online shopping day that will be here before you know it! Valentine’s Day 2016 resulted in $18.9 BILLION dollars in sales, and is yet another holiday that year over year retailers see online sales increase. So get started working on what you want to do for Valentine’s Shoppers this year, we already know the big retailers are thinking about it or already have plans in place!

Drop the Win-Lose Mentality

September 27th, 2016

brain-gearsDo you know someone that has a win-lose mentality? Or perhaps you have this belief? You believe that if someone else is successful or doing the same thing that you want to, then there would be less opportunity for you. Winning at all costs is the mantra, and if you don’t see the opportunity to win, then you don’t even try.

Well, a belief like this is not conducive to a long lasting successful business.

We receive emails and phone calls from newbie online sellers that can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. They feel that they can’t compete with big online stores, or other sellers in the marketplace selling the same or similar products. So they give up, without even trying! They give up on their dreams of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Well, sorry to say, but it must not have been that big of a dream to give up on it so easily!

Everyone is unique. Everyone is their own person. We each have our own personality, feelings, beliefs and a unique perspective on life. Some are more creative than others, some are more humorous than others, some are more intelligent than others. But our own individual personalities, likes and dislikes do bleed into one another and cross over to appeal to others. Yes, you are unique, but there are thousands of others that touch on your personality and will hold similar beliefs and outlooks on life. We like the same things, if there weren’t those similarities, then every retailer would struggle selling products.

So what do you do? Find creative solutions to the problems.

If the problem is that you are trying to compete with other retailers, then do something that they aren’t doing. Advertise in a different way, use a unique set of keywords, be more relatable to your audience, to just name a few.

I did a blog series about competing with big online retailers. This 8 part blog series holds a wealth of information about competing with other retailers. Not just big online retailers, but all competitiors.

Here are the links:
Know Your Customers
Go Niche!
Great Content
Talk it Up!
Loyalty Programs
Better Website
Customer Support
Manage Costs

Once you drop the win-lose mentality and actually try, you will find that you can be successful with selling online. It does take trial and error and a lot of patience and attention, just like any growing business. But as long as you don’t give up, you can be successful too! Just remember, big businesses started where you are, with an idea. Stay focused, keep trying and keep your head in the game.
