Do you know the Best Selling days in November and are you ready to take advantage of them?
If not here is the 3 days of November that you should be armed and ready to take advantage of driving sales to reach your end of year target:
This one is new to me but did you know that on the 11th November it is Singles’ Day? Singles’ Day concept originated in China but is now taking the globe by storm. According to Forbes
“This year, Singles’ Day sales are forecast to surpass last year’s $17.8 billion, given an unprecedented number of participating brands, significant offline retail offerings and Alibaba’s effort to extend the occasion from a one-day shopping event into a shopping season.”
This is a great time to offer deals for consumers to treat themselves before they start their list of Christmas gifts for everyone else. Think about all those singles out there looking for new outfits to look their best for Christmas parties!
Over the last few years we’ve seen Black Friday making a huge impact on sales for Irish businesses. What started as an American tradition has become one of the biggest retail days of the year here, with Irish consumers in 2016 spending circa €74m.
This year Black Friday will take place on the 24th of November but not limited to just one day in Ireland. Over the last few years we’ve seen retailers carry their special offers right through the weekend. And it’s not just retailers that can benefit from Black Friday, no matter what business you run, consider a special offer to generate a buzz and demand for your business and cash in on this shopping phenomenon.
It doesn’t stop at Black Friday, if you have an online presence don’t forget about Cyber Monday on the 27th of November.
While bricks-and-mortar retailers have seen thousands of shoppers flock to their stores to avail of their special offers on Black Friday over the years , online retailers started noticing a boost in sales the following Monday, as people sat at their computers and began to think about Christmas.
This is especially successful for the technology industry, offering discounts on electronics like laptops, tablets, game consoles etc. If you’re selling any form of consumer electronic gadgets, make sure your online campaigns are up and ready for Cyber Monday.
