But It’s Not Even Halloween Yet.

This isn’t meant to scare anyone, but Christmas is now less than 90 days away.
Yes, less than 90 days.
With that in mind, we’ll be focusing our posts this week on
research that will bring you holiday results.
Starting with some of the latest research that is pointing to a
change in holiday shopping behaviors.

  • 62% of participants said they planned on
    spending less overall
  • Half said they were going to comparison shop
    more this year than last
  • 31% said they would not make any purchases that
    did not involve discounts or free shipping
  • Nearly 30% said they would spend more time
    shopping online than at the mall
  • 12% percent planned to use social media to find
    deals or use social media to inform friends about deals they found

What Does This Mean For You?
It will be more important than ever this holiday season for you to remain visible with your customers.  Consumers are spending less and looking for deals.  If you don’t tell them about everything you have to offer, how will they find you?
