Cyber Monday Unseats Black Friday As Biggest Shopping Day


By all accounts, Cyber Monday was a blowout. AOR (average order value) was 2.15% higher than on Black Friday. Items per order were 50% greater and conversion rates were 27.29% higher. Overall online sales were up from 2011 by 30.3% so we have alot to be joyful about. Mobile had, by far, the biggest impact on sales this year. Not that it represented a majority of sales, but it had it’s strongest showing yet with 18% of web traffic coming from mobile devices (mostly iPhones and iPads), and 13% of sales coming straight from mobile. The biggest surprise was that social networks seemed to be in a tryptophan stupor this year with a 26% drop in effectiveness in driving sales.
