Things to keep in mind before shopping online

Things to keep in mind before shopping online

September 28, 2018

They always compare shopping online with an adventure.  No maps, no plans just the thrill of the moment.  Well, you are not Indiana Jones or at the very least, not Dora the Explorer. If you think shopping online is an adventure, I would dare say yes, but like any adventure, If you don’t come prepared, you will be in a far greater risk than you care to admit.

 So what am I saying?  Before you jump online and surf the web for bargains you should at least keep the following in mind, or better yet, ask yourself the following questions:

Do you know what you want?

Although there are people who go online shopping just for the fun of it. It doesn’t mean they don’t know or have the faintest idea what they want.  Knowing what you want saves you time and you come in focused because you know exactly what you are looking for.  So how would you know?  Research!  Before you log in to your favorite e-commerce site like https://getitim.com/ make sure you already checked out the item you want to buy.  For example, you are looking for a professional stainless steel knife, check out what is popular among local chefs, check out its features, look at images, check out the price, check the different brands.  Once you’ve decided what knife you want, that is the only time you log in to your e-commerce site.

What is your budget?

Meaning, how much are you willing to spend for a product or for your shopping as a whole.  You can't just click on everything you like.  Or purchase whatever is on the ad or product highlight on the site.  This is a very reckless way of shopping. Decide first how much you can afford to spend.  Then, later on, decide what can you purchase based on your budget.  Once you are committed to sticking with the budget, it will be very easy for you to shortlist the items you will be buying for the day.

Read reviews from different users

Why is this important?  End users, know if the price is right. They have tried and tested the product, even during harsh conditions.  Reviews from these people can help you make decisions objectively and more efficiently.

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.

Having a credit card is great because you can now buy anything online, well, almost anything. But the online world as it is attractive can be really …..tricky. As scams and robberies can happen on the streets, it can also happen online. Here are 5 things you need to remember before you start shopping online:

 1.You need to keep your personal information very secure online. 

Be very careful as to who you share your personal information with, specifically your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. Never share these over the phone, email, or internet to strangers.

 2.CALL do not chat or email.
