With a company name like B&M DIGITAL, it’s only fitting that one of our favorite days of the year is Cyber Monday right? We even came up with this short “Cyber-ish” video to promote our services today:
The term “Cyber Monday” was coined in 2005 after retailers began noticing that their Black Friday sales were pouring over into Monday morning. Instead of customers showing up in person, however, they were browsing and ordering online as they returned to their high speed internet access at work.
Each year more and more retailers (and customers) are hopping on the Cyber Monday bandwagon. Last year alone brought more than $1.3 Billion in online sales, a 22% increase over 2010. This year analysts expect that number to surpass $2 Billion.
So with that being said, what will you be purchasing this Cyber Monday? We’ve got our eyes set on a nice Fisheye Lens and some lighting equipment!
Check out the graphic below for more interesting stats and a brief history of Cyber Monday. Happy online shopping!
