Black Friday, the craziest and most lucrative shopping day of the year, is on the horizon. It’s that time of year when daily sales hit their peak.
Black Friday, the shopping extravaganza that it is today, has a fascinating history. It originated in the United States and traditionally marks the day after Thanksgiving. This day has long been considered the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. The term “Black Friday” is believed to have originated in the early 1960s when retailers started using it to describe the bustling shopping crowds that thronged stores, turning their accounting books from “red” to “black,” signifying profitability.
Black Friday has evolved into a shopping phenomenon, especially for Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) brands. These brands have been achieving remarkable sales figures year after year during Black Friday.
Though a borrowed concept, the Black Friday Sales has gained relevancy in India as well.
Activewear D2C brand BlissClub saw its website traffic rise by 3x, and orders witnessed a 4x jump during its ongoing Black Friday sale event. Alkaline drink brand EVOCUS also saw its sales increase by 300 percent, and almost 80 percent of its sales came from GenZ and millennials. According to Business Line
The Role of an Optimized Website:
Now, here’s the kicker. While many brands participate in Black Friday sales, what sets the best apart from the rest is having a website that’s finely tuned. An inefficient or disorganized website can cost you a significant chunk of sales. Imagine a potential customer clicking on your website but facing slow loading times or difficulty finding products. Frustrated, they leave, and you lose a sale.
The Customer’s Wishlist and the Importance of an Optimized Website:
Black Friday isn’t just a big day for brands; it’s equally significant for customers.
People eagerly await this day to fulfill their wishlists and purchase gifts for the holiday season.
