Life Hacks on How to Shop Online - Part 1

September 03, 2018

Americans love online shopping.  According to a recent study by Statista, there is at least 220.6 million shoppers in the US by the end of 2018 and will rise to 230.5 million by the year 2021.

Number of digital shoppers in the United States from 2016 to 2021 (in millions)

 

According to another study,  millennials and Gen Z online shoppers spent around 223 – 250 minutes when shopping online. That is roughly 4 hours of time spent searching for the right product. 

Average daily time spent online by teenage and Millennial internet users worldwide as of 2nd quarter 2017, by device (in minutes)

What if we can help you with a more efficient way of shopping online? Allow me to give you a list of things you can do to make your online shopping more efficient:

 

  1. Specific Country of Origin

 Unless you are trying to purchase something from overseas pressing the proverbial .com is like a Russian roulette when it comes to searches. But what if you are trying to buy something Japan, for example, is site:jp or keyword: jp.  This immediately narrows down your search to Japanese only sources.

 

  1. Specific Website

 What if you want to search a particular site? Normally you would go to (example) www.nike.com and search.  But finding a specific product may take a lot of time.  You can try doing Jordan 12: footlocker and get awesome results.

 

  1. Similar Site

 Let say you have exhausted searching the www.nike.com site.  But you still haven’t found what you are exactly looking for.  By simply using the word “related”, followed by a colon and the site you are currently on, you can get a list of similar sites. Ex. related:site.com

  

  1. Minus Sign

 Using a minus or a hyphen sign prior to a word narrows down the search tremendously. Example, you are looking for hoodies.  But you don’t want hoodies with zipper.  By typing hoodie -zipper in your search bar, you will get a list of hoodies without the zipper.

Online Thanksgiving Shopping for 2018
Online Thanksgiving Shopping for 2018

November 14, 2018

Here is the thing about Thanksgiving shopping,  since Thanksgiving is only a day before Black Friday, most people don’t really think about Thanksgiving sales.  For that week, people think of thanksgiving as a family holiday and festivities, and not shopping for consumer and other personal items.  On top of that, most retail brands close down their brick and mortar shops during Thanksgiving inline for the holidays. So is there really such a thing as a Thanksgiving sale?

 Most analyst will argue that for the past two years (even 3), thanks giving retail sale is on the rise.  Thanks to online shopping of course.  Here are the points of that argument:

  1. Most companies now offer advance Black Friday sale. Brands and retail companies offer early Black Friday promos to take advantage of the season.  Or simply just to get ahead of the competition.

Black Friday Shopping: Online vs Offline Shopping
Black Friday Shopping: Online vs Offline Shopping

November 14, 2018

For most people Black Friday is a consumer event that is arguably exceeding that of the traditional Christmas sale.  For the loyal and the purist, Black Friday meant standing in queue outside shopping malls, elbowing your way through a crowd, even punching your way to the occasional fist fight over a $75 flat screen TV or a $10 coffee maker.  For some, they even go to the extent of coming up with a game plan the night before Black Friday. For most people, nothing beats getting physical when it comes to Black Friday sale. 

But for some, it is time to breakaway from this tradition. Although everyone would agree that Black Friday can be more than just a consumer event following Thanksgiving where everyone can get a $5 shirt on sale. As the popularity of online shopping soars, some traditional shoppers are starting to consider the possibility of doing their Black Friday purchase in front of a screen instead of a crowd of shoppers thirsty for a large discount.

Offline Shopping Advantage

For the purist offline shopper, it is the thrill of the hunt (for bargains) that pumps their adrenaline.  In Store Only Deals are unparalleled compared to online deals. And I must admit, the shopping experience can be un-paralleled.  For some, Black Friday is a family tradition, a chance for family and friends to bond and I dare say, compete with other groups or families over a $99 sale.
