Cyber Monday gives a big boost to mobile commerce

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom TAGSCyber Mondaytheconversation.com Previous article“Giving Tuesday” is two days awayNext articleBest Cyber Monday 2017 deals, ads, and sales Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By A. Ant Ozok and first published on the conversation.comHere is an accurate prediction for a change: No matter how Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales turn out, one big winner of the Thanksgiving shopping extravaganza will be mobile commerce.Mobile users accounted for half of all product browsing last Cyber Monday. Almost one out of three products was purchased by a mobile phone or tablet last Cyber Monday. Moreover, mobile sales grew 34 percent from 2015 to 2016 on Cyber Monday, earning US$1.07 billion of the $3.45 billion total revenue for the day.Cyber Monday was an instant hit when it was created in 2005 by the National Retail Federation (a major retail trade association), and is today by far the largest online shopping day of the year in the U.S.As an e-commerce researcher, I know that Cyber Monday will likely become the biggest shopping day of the year, online or otherwise, sometime in the next decade. Key to that growth will be Americans’ increasing familiarity with using mobile devices to buy on the go. The e-commerce industry’s next marketing innovations could bring location- and search-specific promotional deals, or even shopping for physical items using augmented or virtual reality.A touch of historyWhen it began, Cyber Monday was an online shopping counterpart to the in-person retail frenzy of Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving that traditionally opens the Christmas gift-shopping season. Retailers wanted to take advantage of the fact that office workers were back in their offices after a few days off – so perhaps they could be enticed by a few special deals.At the time, it also served as a promotion for the then-new possibility of shopping online at Amazon and the websites of big-box retailers like Target and Best Buy. Early marketing aimed not just at office workers, but also customers who didn’t enjoy elbowing their way through thronged big-box stores. A side benefit appeared for real shop-til-you-droppers: If they missed out on a Black Friday deal, they could buy it online.There was a different, less festive attitude: If Black Friday meant shopping for fun, Cyber Monday was the day to shop for function. In the early days, products promoted on Cyber Monday were typically electronics, like computers and televisions. The name implies a focus on technology as both what would be bought and how it would be purchased. For the past five years or so, more than half the U.S. workforce comes to work on Cyber Monday intending to shop online while at work.As a result, it is no longer a day where shoppers look for electronics only or deals they missed during Black Friday. Now Cyber Monday is a broad shopping experience spanning every product category imaginable.Mobile consumptionIt would be difficult to imagine Cyber Monday getting this big if not for the increased availability of mobile technologies. Until only a few years ago, the year-to-year growth of mobile commerce was just incremental.Early researchers did not view mobile commerce as a replacement of computer-based e-commerce, but rather as a convenience tool for on-the-go purchases like concert tickets, and to carry electronic coupon codes rather than printing them for use at brick-and-mortar stores.Many researchers (including yours truly) argued that it was difficult to think of mobile as a major shopping platform because a phone was designed not as a screen to look at but rather a device to span the distance between a person’s ear and her mouth. Some even predicted that mobile commerce would gain traction once cell phones came with integrated barcode readers.We were proved wrong when the smartphone brought together a fully functional computer and a high-resolution camera, along with touch-screen controls allowing zooming in on images. Smartphones rapidly became most Americans’ primary Web surfing device. Today, most large online shopping sites have a mobile version for easier viewing on smaller screens, and mobile shopping as a platform is still rapidly growing, with large retailers now reporting more sales via mobile devices than via desktop and laptop computers combined.Expanding Cyber MondayThe future development of Cyber Monday will include both competition and expansion. Big retailers spend huge amounts on advertising their Cyber Monday deals, which can put smaller companies at a disadvantage. So far, the event is a big retailers’ game; smaller players need to work hard with their small budgets to bump sales on Cyber Monday. (They also have their own Small Business Saturday event, largely a brick-and-mortar affair.)Retailers are pushing the start date of their deals earlier to beat the competition, and creating even more dates for good deals (Nov. 11, “Singles Day,” is a successful global example). But Cyber Monday will no doubt keep growing in the mobile arena for years to come.E-commerce marketing strategies are constantly changing, and it is conceivable that we will soon see more Cyber Monday deals beyond retail, such as travel deals, even targeted products, and services for businesses. Retailers will also take advantage of the emerging augmented reality technologies on the mobile platform to market their products and special deals. Maybe every day is not yet Cyber Monday, but with the rapid growth of mobile commerce, every day is a Cyber Funday to shop online.Note: This is an updated version of an article originally published Nov. 21, 2016.A.

Yellow Carded player winds up fans, soon becomes Red Carded player

first_imgFriday Feb 12, 2016 Yellow Carded player winds up fans, soon becomes Red Carded player Lille player Antoine Pierre recently found out that if you get yellow carded and then choose to wind up the away crowd by playing the fool and dancing on the sidelines, it generally won’t go down well. Pierre’s shenanigans against Vannes, in Federale 1 in France, resulted in an early shower.He was already being booed so decided to egg on the crowd even more, but the referee didn’t appreciate his dance moves, so promptly changed the yellow card to red.

Simon to sell novel candles to raise money

first_img The Simon Communities of Ireland in association with EBS Building Society has launched a Christmas candle campaign asking people who wish to support those who are homeless this Christmas to buy a Simon Candle for just ‚€5. People are being asked to consider giving the candle as a token gift this year in place of a novelty item that is not in aid of a good cause. The ‘candle’ is actually an LED night light so it is perfectly safe to leave lighting in a window or hanging from a Christmas tree. The exclusively designed decoration will burn for 80 hours. Speaking about the Christmas campaign, Conor Hickey from the Simon Communities of Ireland said: Our hope this Christmas is that the Simon Candle will brighten up people’s homes as well as people’s lives. It has long been a tradition in Ireland to burn a candle in the window during Christmas as a sign of welcome and this candle, which is in the form of a nightlight, can be placed in the window or hung on a tree. Advertisement Howard Lake | 22 November 2005 | News “As well as making the perfect gift the candle is decorated with the universal symbol of hope- an eternal flame – which is what the proceeds from the candle will help provide to those who will unfortunately be spending this Christmas on our streets, Mr Hickey said.The Simon Candle, which goes on sale today, is available through EBS Building Society branches nationwide; selected Simon shops including Dublin, Waterford, Athlone, Galway, Cork and Dundalk and from Simon volunteers who will be selling them on the streets. Commenting on the Christmas campaign Aidan Power, EBS Building Society Marketing Manager said: EBS is delighted to support this campaign by facilitating the sale of the candle in our branches across Ireland. Over the last year and a half EBS has worked in close partnership with the Simon Communities to support its Independent Living Initiative which aims to provide independent housing directly to those who are homeless. Our support for the Christmas candle campaign is another strand to this partnership,” he said. . Tagged with: Ireland About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Commission publishes findings of research into drivers of trust in charities

According to the study, the public now trust charities less than they trust the average person in the street. The research also reveals that a person’s trust is closely associated with their donating behaviour; 52% of those whose trust has increased say they donate to charities more as a consequence, while 41% of those whose trust has decreased say they donate to charities less as a consequence. Similarly, individuals who do trust charities are far more likely to have recently made repeat donations to a charity than those who do not (24% vs. 11%). Those who do not trust charities are more likely to have never given to charities (9% vs. 1%).Baroness Stowell, Chair of the Charity Commission, said:“Charitable endeavour is about benefiting society, adding value to our lives and communities – making the world a better place. This research shows that the public no longer give charities as institutions the benefit of the doubt in providing that value. What the public expect is not unreasonable: they want charities to be guided by their ethos and purpose in everything they do, and they want charities to use their money efficiently and responsibly. The public have seen evidence of charities failing to demonstrate these behaviours. So it is not surprising that trust has not recovered, and that the public are calling for greater transparency. This is proxy for a more profound issue: the public want evidence that charities are what they say they are.“But this research also contains good news for charities and those who care about trust in charities: it shows that the answer is not to impose more rules and procedures or to tick more boxes, it is about attitude, ethos and culture.” Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

In a letter to the CM, Singh accused Deshmukh of running an extortion racket on March 20, after he was ousted from the CP’s office and asked to take charge as Director General Home Guard. The petition seeks the investigation against them u/s 166 (Public servant disobeying the law, with intent to cause injury to any person) of the IPC. The plea filed by Pune based RTI activist Hemant Patil further seeks a probe against Mumbai Police officer Sachin Waze, through whom the extortion racket was allegedly run. The officer was recently arrested by the National Investigating Agency (NIA) for his role in placing explosives near Mukesh Ambani’s residence on February 25. The petition states that a CBI inquiry is imperative. “Each act of respondent no. 6 (Anil Deshmukh) in abuse of the official position of the Hon’ble Home Minister, whether in calling and directly instructing the police officers of the lower rank such as Shi Waze or Shri Patil for his malicious intent of extorting money from establishments across Mumbai and from other sources, or whether in interfering in the investigations and directing the same to be conducted in a particular manner, or whether indulging in corrupt malpractices in postings/transfers of officers cannot be countenanced or justified in any democratic state. A fair CBI investigation is thus warranted in each of such acts of Respondent no. 6 in abuse of the official position of the Home Minister.” Background Patil states that extortion is a crime against the public and the CM and others at the helm are in charge of law and order in the state of Maharashtra. In the petition, he claims that the respondents have wrongly feigned ignorance. “It is revealed to the petitioner by the letter submitted by respondent no. 5 (Parambir Singh) to respondent no. 7 (CM) stating that respondent no. 6 (Anil Deshmukh) has allowed respondent no. 4 (Sachin Waze) to extort huge amounts from businessmen of Mumbai city and at about Rs 100 crores to be paid to him.” The petition claims according to Parambir’s letter Deshmukh would call Waze to his official residence several times and instruct Waze to assist in the collection of funds. “The Hon’ble Home Minister expressed to Shri Vaze that he had a target to accumulate Rs. 100 crores a month. For achieving the aforesaid target, the Hon’ble Home Minister told Shri Vaze that there are about 1,750 bars, restaurants and other establishments in Mumbai and if a sum of Rs. 2-3 lakhs each was collected from each of them, a monthly collection of Rs. 40-50 crores was achievable. The Hon’ble Home Minister added that the rest of the collection could be made from other sources.” Patil claims that the CM’s response to the letter, saying it did not come from Parambir’s official ID was “shocking.” The petition states that it is just and necessary for an independent agency to inquire into the matter otherwise there will be a message in the public that to protect the state and rights of public ministers, police are not useful and they have to protect by themselves only and there will be an end of democracy and present system under the constitution of India and it will be collapsed. Patil says that he approached the Director General of Police and the Commissioner’s office for an inquiry against the respondents, however, he was asked to move the court. Prayer This Hon’ble Court be pleased to issue a writ of centiorari… direction to the respondents 1 to 3 or to an independent agency under the supervision of this Hon’ble Court, under article 226 of the Constitution of India for registration of FIR u/s 384, 385, 386, 387, 388, 389 of IPC against respondent no. 4 (Waze) and his associates and u/s 166 r/w 34 of IPC against respondent no. 5 to 7 on the representation of petitioner, and also for inquiry and investigation calling for the entire records on the complaint filed by the petitioner addressed to respondent no. 2 & 3 against respondent no. 4 to 7 and to file a detailed report within a specific period.
