Cyber Monday is a marketing term created by American companies to persuade people to shop online. It falls on the Monday after Black Friday, the Friday following the American Thanksgiving Weekend.
The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a Shop.org and in 2006 the on-line company launched the CyberMonday.com portal, a one-stop shop for Cyber Monday deals. In the seven years since, this phenomenon has taken off. In 2010, comScore reported the first-ever $1 billion online shopping day ($1028M), an increase of 16 percent over 2009. In 2011, comScore reported that Cyber Week saw US consumers spend over $6 billion online from November 28 to December 2.
Cyber Monday came to Canada in 2008. According to a National Post 2010 article, an estimated 80% of Canadians were expected to participate in Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Last year about 80% of online retailers in Canada were participating in Cyber Monday. In 2012, this day, CG&A COMMUNICATIONS enters the on-line sales frenzy offering our readers two bundled packages with value savings of 50%.
