Cyber Monday Tips Consider

Step Aside Black Friday – Cyber Monday is the best way to shop this holiday.

You’ve been browsing, at your convenience… from your smartphone, tablet – whenever, wherever. Holiday shopping madness is here and that means it’s crunch time but consumers are crunching numbers, looking for the best discounts on hot items while.

Cyber Monday is one of the best days to target your holiday shopping and put a serious dent in Santa’s list. Exclusive discounts and promotional offers will run throughout November 30th in honor of Cyber Monday – often called the Black Friday of ecommerce.

Whether you are browsing on a desktop, smartphone, tablet or other connected device, consider these tips during your Cyber Monday shopping.

 

Safe Browsing and Secure Purchases

Look for the green lock next to the https:// URL in your Internet browser to make sure that the site you are purchasing from is secure. If you happen to see a red “X” next to the URL, your personal information is at risk and you should not proceed with entering any personal information.

 SHOP LOCAL

Don’t forget about Small Businesses and the Cyber Monday promotions that will be offered by local ecommerce

If you know the specific item you are looking for, you can search for the best Cyber Monday deals through an online search by typing in the item # or product description.

To secure the arrival of your package, make sure that the email address you are using for your order is one that you have access to.

Understand the return policy! Retailers will sometimes offer Cyber Monday or seasonal return policies but it is important to read each retailer’s return policy.

If you have to create a user account to complete your purchases, you may or may not want to opt out of email or newsletter updates. For things that you may not be interested in on a routine basis, be on the lookout for an option to “opt-out” or “subscribe” to updates.

Impact Media Solutions would like to share one of it’s ongoing success stories with you. Extreme Bargains is a Big Box retailer located in Lumberton, NC that deals in retail merchandise @ wholesale prices, similar to a Costco or Sams Wholesale, but they only have 1 location at this time. They approached us in the Spring of 2010 with a simple 2 page site that had a picture of their building with directions on how to get to their location and that was really about it. When we drove up to speak to Chris and Kurt (the owners) they were very friendly and had a vision of what they were looking for, but were unsure of the necessary steps and strategy to get there on the web. We were able to come up with an Internet Marketing strategy that complimented their local efforts, and so we began by rebuilding their current website with the intent on selling the same items on their website that they sell locally. As you know retail is tough, and online discount retail is even tougher, but since the site has been launched, we have increased traffic significantly as you can see in the graph below and their sales are respective.

Impact Media &  Extreme Bargains have developed their presence on the web over the past year and are already seeing ROI in record time. Impact Media does not believe in the one size fits all mentality our web design is catered to the “you” the client and we always try to accentuate what you already have. Once we launch a site, it does not mean we are finished with that site, we are there with you the rest of the way for guidance and support. You can truly never be done with a website, websites need to be constantly evolving and changing as we do in life or they will go stale and users will go to a new site that stimulates their senses. I will be talking more about this in upcoming posts, so please come back for more.

Thanks!
