The best technology for those technology nerds!

It’s estimated that this year each shopper will spend $1,007.24 on Black Friday! The turkey is out of the oven and dinner is just ending and people are already out shopping. Traditionally, Black Friday was only held on the Friday after Thanksgiving; however, as the years have passed the holiday cuts earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving.

A professional shopping tip: the best deals aren’t on Black Friday anymore, they’re on the days following up to this shopping palooza.

These are some statistics about Black Friday spending habits and consumer behaviors:

  • 2017 holiday sales from November to December totalled to be $691.9 billion!
  • 11 percent of Black Friday shoppers in 2017 started before 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day. Another 11 percent started at 6 p.m. and over 25 percent started at 10 a.m. or later on Black Friday itself.
  • Amazon is the top retailer for online Black Friday deals and shopping.
  • Walmart is the second biggest for online Black Friday deals and shopping.

How did we know about these deals? Email marketing, social media and word of mouth. The holidays are the biggest quarter for sales for all e-commerce and businesses. It’s important to get your brand out there and your products and services.

P.S.: Amazon started their Black Friday deals on November 1st this year! Yes, there are still items that will be specifically made for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but the picking might be slim.
