About The Talk
In 2019, Cyber 5 (the five-day holiday period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday), U.S. consumers spent $28.49 billion online, up 17.7% from the year before.
This year, because of the pandemic and the increasing growth of e-commerce, we will very likely beat the record-setting numbers from last year.
With a hectic holiday season coming up – you should be preparing right now for how you can best take advantage of the holidays to maximize your marketing dollars and increase your sales.
