Cyber Monday... Are You Buying or Selling?

Do you know what today is? It’s Cyber Monday!

According to Wikipedia “The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday, the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. Whereas Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, "Cyber Monday" symbolizes a busy day for online retailers. The premise was that consumers would return to their offices after the Black Friday weekend, making purchases online that they were not able to make in stores. The idea has not survived the test of time (see below), however, Cyber Monday has evolved into a significant marketing event, sponsored by the National Retail Federation's division, in which online retailers offer low prices and promotions.”

And according to, “The Internet will influence 30 percent of holiday sales this year, up from 29 percent last year, and men are more likely to shop from work than women, according to Adults 18-24 are more likely to shop online from work than any other age group, at 73 percent.”
Many large retailers around the world are offering discounts for those who shop online. Home Shopping Network for instance, is offering a 15% discount to their already heavily discounted prices; Kmart, Target and Staples have specific product offerings you can only get online on Cyber Monday.
