About this Event

Cyber Monday is a major online shopping event held on the Monday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It’s the online counterpart to Black Friday, traditionally focused on brick-and-mortar stores. Today, both days represent significant moments in the holiday shopping season.

History:

  • 2005: The term “Cyber Monday” was coined by the National Retail Federation and Shop.org to describe the growing trend of online shopping on the Monday after Thanksgiving. At the time, online retail was still relatively new and niche.
  • Early Years: Initially, Cyber Monday offered deals primarily on electronics and computers. It quickly gained popularity, driven by convenience and exclusive online discounts.
  • Global Phenomenon: By the late 2010s, Cyber Monday had become a global shopping event, with retailers worldwide participating and offering deals across various product categories.
  • Present Day: Cyber Monday consistently ranks as one of the biggest online shopping days of the year, often exceeding Black Friday in terms of total sales. The event has also expanded beyond the Monday itself, with many retailers offering deals throughout the entire “Cyber Week.”

Impact:

  • Retail: Cyber Monday has fundamentally changed the holiday shopping season, driving significant online sales and revenue for retailers.
  • Consumers: The event offers shoppers the opportunity to find deep discounts and complete their holiday shopping conveniently from home.
  • Economy: Cyber Monday contributes significantly to the overall retail sector and the broader economy.

Key factors contributing to Cyber Monday’s success:

  • Convenience: Online shopping offers a more comfortable and relaxed experience compared to in-store crowds.
  • Exclusive deals: Many retailers offer limited-time promotions and discounts specifically for Cyber Monday.
  • Wide product selection: Shoppers can find a vast array of products from different retailers on a single platform.
  • Mobile shopping: The rise of mobile shopping has made it even easier for consumers to participate in Cyber Monday.
