So why do people shop online?

So why do people shop online?

May 22, 2018

We have been talking about a lot of reason why people shop online.  We normally would say it is because of the price or promotion and of course convenience.  But you will be surprised to know that those two reasons are not the primary reason given by those people who shop online? 

 

Lower Price

Is one of the reasons but it is not the primary reason.  Surprised?  It only shows that shopping online is not always about the money or the savings or black Friday, etc.  There is more to shopping online than just getting good deals where you can save money.

 

New Items

For most people its all about new and exciting items.  Which is true, online shopping presents more product selection than TV shopping or the biggest mall can offer.  And you can actually see those products at the same time.  You can compare prices, features, check reviews and most of the time get good deals as well. 

 

Wider Selection

 Since there is no physical store involved.  Online stores don’t have to maintain a brick and mortar store.  Hence, they are not limited in terms of product offerings.  They can show you hundreds and hundreds of products you can choose from.  What’s more, you can compare those products with other online stores so you can actually make an educated decision on which item to buy. 

 

Free Shipping

This is one of the best invention ever! Free shipping.  You can actually buy anything across the US and still get shipped by the online store for free.  You don’t have to pick it up or pay shipping cost.  They will send you the product you bought free of charge!

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.
