Cyber Monday 2012 has now come and gone, and once again, this huge retail event (which takes place on the Monday after thanksgiving), has proved incredibly popular with the masses.
InternetRetailer.com has released some statistics relating to 2012’s Cyber Monday event, several of which make interesting reading:
As an MSP, it’s possible to deduce some useful information from these statistics that will help you in planning for the year ahead. Consider the following:
Consider the fact that 70% more people now do their Cyber Monday shopping with a mobile device compared to last year. Then take into account that this is before millions of individuals buy iPad Minis and Nexus 7s as Christmas gifts. It’s fair to say there will probably be a similar, if not far larger, rise next year.
With the iPad Mini sure to be on many Christmas lists, next year iPads will claim even more Web browsing market share.
So, with these two facts in mind, what steps should you take to benefit from the knowledge provided by the Cyber Monday stats?
Although Android is likely to gain market share thanks to devices like the Nexus 7, the statistics seem to suggest that the majority of tablets that will actually get used regularly will be iPads!
Good statistics, interpreted inventively, give you a glimpse of the future. Make use of them and you can have ready the services your customers need – before they even realize they need them
