My country don’t have any Black Friday or Cyber Monday but I just want to share what is this shopping campaign. Before reading about this differentiate of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, let’s we get definition of Cyber Monday.
From Wikipedia, Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. The term was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. This term introduced in November 28, 2005 by Shop.org. Their press released entitled ‘Cyber Monday Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year’.
Differences between Cyber Monday and Black Friday
1. More People Buy Later in the Day
Maybe America’s worker bees can’t sneak in time to shop online during Cyber Monday. Last year, Cyber Monday online sales peaked between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern time, with sales that hour totaling $150 million, according to Adobe Digital Index Market Research. On Black Friday last year, online shopping sales peaked from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., bringing in the same $150 million for retailers.
2. Shoppers Do More Research
According to an AOL survey, 83 percent of Cyber Monday shoppers reported researching online before shopping, compared with 64 percent of Black Friday shoppers.
3. Fewer Ads
While retailers notify shoppers and the media of their Black Friday deals days or sometimes weeks in advance, there is less notice on Cyber Monday deals.
“Retailers want to tempt you with as many deals as possible, without discouraging early shopping,” writes Josie Rubio of DealNews.
