Make The Most Of Cyber Monday

While Black Friday is perhaps the most famous day for shopping all around the world, Cyber Monday is the big day for online retailors, especially if you’re into to tech. Cyber Monday falls on the last Monday of November, which is the Monday directly after Black Friday. This year, it falls on the 29th.

A Short History

Cyber Monday came into prominence in the early 2000s, when American analytics companies noticed that an uptick in online sales on the first Monday after Thanksgiving. After a bit of research, they came to the conclusion that many people had returned to work after a long weekend of celebrating Thanksgiving and then perusing Black Friday sales, and were now using the high speed internet connections at work to find some final sales. Remember, this was the early noughties, so home internet connections were slower, which meant mass online shopping wasn’t as common as it is today.

Once retailors realised that the Black Friday hype was continuing through to the next week, they decided to take advantage of that by slashing even more prices to draw in even more customers which, in turn, allowed everyone else to take advantage of low prices for longer. And thus, Cyber Monday was born.
