Green Monday Strategies for Sales

file2091234132518

Business is booming on the Internet this year as shoppers utilize their iPads, Smart phones, PC’s, and tablets to purchase Christmas gifts for family and friends. Major retailers reported an increase of 30% in sales from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, which is the weekend following Thanksgiving.

Green Monday, which falls on the tenth day before Christmas is predicted to be another day where businesses can boost their profits. In the past, consumers in the United States spent $1.133 billion on merchandise. Consumers could well exceed that amount this year, as we have experienced record sales during the Black Friday, Black Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Pinterest received the biggest gains for on-line sales, but few business owners are using the site.

Bizrate has observed that there are advantages to using Pinterest, which include,

70% of online consumers surveyed utilize Pinterest to “get inspiration on what to buy”

67% use it “to keep up on the latest trends on things [they] like”

43% use it to “associate with retailers or brands with which [they] identify”

39% use it for “special offers from retailers, brands, or people that [they’ve] pinned/followed”

In addition to posting on Pinterest, business owners can advertise their products on sites such as Whofish. Here is a place where business owners can post advertisements for their products, services, and events, as well as list their businesses in their own communities, as well as other states. Business owners can gain followers on their listings, as well as send unlimited e-mail to friends and followers whenever their business listing or event is featured on the site. Therefore, if business owners have not yet advertised for Green Monday, this may be a place for them to advertise.

Sending e-mail to clients and prospects relative to the new deals you are offering with Christmas themes will attract many buyers, especially if products are priced to sell. Business owners could include their coupons in the e-mail to be used on-line or in the brick and mortar locations.
