What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is a marketing term used to describe the Monday following Thanksgiving Day. It’s considered one of the busiest online shopping days of the year.
Unlike Black Friday, which historically involves in-store shopping with doorbuster deals, Cyber Monday is centered around online shopping. Many retailers both large and small offer discounts and promotions on their websites, encouraging consumers to shop online.
They often launch campaigns specifically for the day, promoting online-exclusive deals and limited-time offers through email newsletters, social media promotions, and online advertisements.
These deals include a wide range of products, from electronics and gadgets to clothing, home goods, and more.
Cyber Monday attracts online shoppers and gadget lovers
Cyber Monday appeals to consumers who prefer the convenience of online shopping and may want to avoid the crowds associated with traditional Black Friday in-store shopping.
The day has become particularly popular for deals on technology and electronics, including smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other gadgets. Consumers often look for tech-related bargains during this online shopping event.
