The good news - people are shopping again!

The better news for Yahoo Store owners - they are shopping online!!!

The even better better news (hehe) for Yahoo Store owners - today is your day!

Today is Monday the 8th and this should be an excellent day for you. Tomorrow and next Monday will be as well! Trends show that these days are very busy for Yahoo Store owners.

So why am I so excited? Well, I got a little scared this year. You see, every single year online sales grow and grow and grow... especially around the holidays.

Yet this year, all we have seen... sales are down from last year. Sales are down. Sales are down. Sales are down.

Then something amazing happened. Sales caught up with last year.

Big deal right? We are doing the same as last year. No growth.

Well yes and no.

Look at this deeper. This means that we were way behind and then a new report came out just yesterday from comScore stating that in the last 6 days...we caught up with last year.

"For the five days beginning with December 1 (Cyber Monday), the kick-off to the heaviest part of the online shopping season, sales totaled $3.74 billion, up 9 percent versus year ago."

WOW right!!

"Monday, December 1 (“Cyber Monday”) with $846 million, and Tuesday, December 2 with $823 million."

See why you should be excited about today, tomorrow and next Monday??

By the way, it looks like the two fastest growing categories over the last 6 days has been Sports & Fitness (35% growth) and Electronics (24% growth).

I am off to get a few hours of sleep before SES Chicago :)

Have a great and profitable day everyone!
