U.S wages had an all-time high in September and Cyber Monday is the largest online shopping day in history

Money makes the world go around, and online shopping is taking off. Cyber Monday hit a new record of $6,59 Billion in sales which is up 16,8% from last years $5,64 Billion. Black Friday is close with its $5,03 Billion in sales and also that is up 16,9%.

Sales on Smartphones came in at an average orders of $123 on Apple iOS with Google Android close at $110. Adobe predicts this will be the first-ever holiday season to break $100 Billion in online sales. This is impressive.

Cyber Monday is the largest U.S online shopping day ever, but take a look at China and Jack Mas Alibaba. The e-commerce giant reported sales of $25,4 Billion in sales earlier this month on Chinas Singles` Day. Wow.

Top sellers on Cyber Monday included the Nintendo Switch, Apple AirPods and streaming devices like Google Chromecast and Roku.

Smartphones stands for 33,1% of revenue and 47,4% of visits which is a new record. Smartphone revenue grew 32,2% compared to 2016, reaching $1,59 Billion and that is a new all-time high.

The holiday season kicks off with Thanksgiving, followed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Thanksgiving has been celebrated in the U.S nationally on and off since 1789, after Congress requested a proclamation by George Washington.

President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of «Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,» to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November.

The «First Thanksgiving» was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their harvest in the New World in October 1621. That was then, but this is now. Time has changed. Now, people spend most of their time thinking what they might need rather than what they already have.

Retailers have competed to give consumers the best deal and people kicked off their holiday season to go shopping off and online to snap up a great bargain. This mirroring the U.S consumer confidence.

The U.S economy expanded an annualized 3,3% on quarter in the third quarter of 2017. Economic Optimism in the U.S rose 6,6% in 53,6 in November this year. Record low came in at 35,80 in August of 2011.

U.S Wages had an all-time high in September of 2017 peaking at 22,23 USD/Hour.

Amazon revealed its new drone while online shopping is increasing

We can see a clear picture here. The busiest day of the year, Black Friday is declining while online retailers see sales are jumping. Black Friday sales fall nearly 11% from last year. How is it gonna be today; on Cyber Monday?

Some shops starts the sale the day before Black Friday and that can be a reason, but if you look at Thanksgiving, it also dropped this year by nearly 11%. Other retailers are offering bargains long before Thanksgiving and that can be another reason to the decline.

The biggest reason I think, is the increased online shopping which jumped 14,3% on Friday from last year. Many people doesn`t want to participate in the wild shopping crowds and prefer rather to shop online than in stores.

It`s Cyber Monday today and the term was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. I wrote about both Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2013, but nobody knew what it was. Now, many knows what Black Friday is but still today no one know what Cyber Monday is.

It`s probably to early for people in Europe. Cyber Monday made its debut on November 28, 2005, and quickly became one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. The trend is driving serious online discounts and promotions on Cyber Monday.

Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday means busy days for Amazon that revealed the latest prototype of drones.

 

 

Amazon are planning to deliver packages in under 30 minutes. The new drones weigh 55 pounds and can deliver packages weighing up to 5 pounds. Amazon has many prototypes, and they are ready to launch the service once the company has the «regulatory support.»

Google revealed that it wants to launch a drone service in 2017, while Walmart said they are now starting drone testing.

What about FedEx, UPS and DHL?

Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday or Black Friday

The National Retail Federation`s Holiday Consumer Spending Survey estimates that American shoppers are likely to spend $804,42 each this holiday season. 50% of those will spend some of that money shopping online.

Black-Friday-Deals

Businesses like Amazon and eBay will leak their Black Friday ads online in advance of the big day and if you log in to Amazon today you will see Black Friday ads on their website. It`s simply because they know that hard-core shoppers spend time scanning the ads, comparison shopping and mapping out the route to the best bargains.

JCPenney will be opening their doors at 5 p.m on Thursday November 27th. It`s getting earlier and earlier every year. It started to make the deals early Friday morning, but this has gotten out of hand. Who`s going to be the first to start Black Friday on Wednesday?

Last year we were dealing with a government shut down, and there was a short shopping season because Thanksgiving landed so late in November. It will be better this year by 1 day. 92 billion shoppers swiped their cards on Black Friday last year, and 47,1% of those did their shopping online. Millions were shopping online on Cyber Monday, and 25 million did their shopping on a mobile device.

Black Monday is expected to surpass Cyber Monday as the biggest online shopping day next year, according to Adobe forecast. Thanksgiving online sales are climbing and will probably be the best day for finding deals online. Not Black friday or Cyber Monday.

Prices online will be discounted an average of 24% and that`s better than Cyber Monday (20%) and Black Friday (23%). Do you think the online deal will be better online than in-store deals? Except for special in-store Black Friday promotions and inventory clearances closer to the holidays, in-store and online prices generally match.

Ot top of people`s list is iPhone 6+, iPhone 6 and Ipad Mini. Other things on top of the list is Kindle, Xbox One, GoPro and Google glass. When I was watching the list I saw that most of the things on that list was IoT`s. (Internet of things).

Thanksgiving is becoming a major day for shopping online, and more stores are opening up as well. Online sales surpassed $1 billion last year, and it is expected to see that climb 27% in 2014, to $1,35 billion. A third of the sales will come from mobile devices, and that`s up 21% from 2013.

Cyber Monday is expected to increase by 15% to a record $2,6 billion in online sales. Black Friday will see the fastest growth by 28% to $2,48 billion, according to Adobe forecast. Thanksgiving will also grow, but not as much as Black Friday. Up 27% to $1,35 billion.

It`s the most wonderful time of the year. If you`re a marketer.

Cyber Monday Sales

More sales to Amazone and Ebay. Not only Thanksgiving and Black Friday is increasing their revenue. Cyber Monday Sales is coming on top of that. What`s next? Consumer Confidence is falling, but online shopping is taking off!

Web sales is projecting to climb 15% this holiday season, while retail sales is growing only 3,9%. This is three times faster than the retail sales. Cyber Monday has historically been the single biggest shopping day of the year so far for U.S retailers, but this is not the reality anymore as the web shops continue to gain share.

Shopping on tablets and smartphones increased twice as fast in the third quarter as desktop online spending, according to ComScore. Thanksgiving have shown that tablets are more popular for purchases, while mobile phones are preferred for browsing.

This is good news for FedEx, Ups, DHL and U.S Postal Services. As the online shopping increase, the amount of packages, revenue and work for the shipping companies will also increase. Amazone and Ebay are big, but there is someone out there that is much much bigger and they are not on the stock exchange yet. I will write about them later.

Investors and money makers are now waiting for December 18.
