Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone.
There’s no denying that Black Friday is huge for eCommerce.
Last year, Black Friday sales in the US grew by 23.6% from 2017.
In one day alone, we collectively spent a jaw-dropping $6.2 billion dollars!
And as a entrepreneur and an eCommerce store owner, you’re probably doing all you can to capitalize on the Black Friday frenzy.
With the holidays quickly approaching, shoppers are already thinking about (and purchasing!) unique gifts for their loved ones. But as an eCommerce merchant, you’re probably thinking, too: What unique products can I offer that people will want to buy as gifts?
There’s no worse feeling than letting your customers down.
And with 31% of shoppers waiting until after Cyber Monday to start buying, you'll want to make sure you're doing everything possible to make sure they have their gifts in hand before the holidays arrive.
77% of all Americans own a smartphone, and with 61% of all online sales coming from mobile shoppers during the holiday shopping season, it's easy to see why optimizing your store for mobile is a must this year.
