Our Amazon news last week was all about the holidays, and some initial Black Friday reportings. Turns out, Cyber Monday was Amazon’s largest shopping day in its 24-year history. Combined with the rest of Amazon’s “Turkey 5” (the days from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday), this has turned into Amazon’s busiest and most profitable holiday kick off ever. They continue increasing in sales during this time, which is beneficial to sellers!
We may be beyond the “Turkey 5” but there are still 25 days until Christmas, which means that you can still optimize your business for sales this holiday. Catch up on our Q4 webinars, and keep an eye on our blog for tons of education on everything from ensuring profitability to remaining TOS compliant.
