What is everyone experiencing this year. Has the rush been earlier, late or just like last year.
I'm working on a new ecommerce site this Xmas so just trying to judge when lift off was or will be in terms of traffic and sales.
Anyway wishing everyone a very fruitful online Christmas for 2005.
PS If it helps I'm based in the UK.
You never can tell. The last 6 years, our busiest month has been December, but in 2004, November did much better than December. So far, it looks like we are going to be back to our normal this year.
Our online sales are down 60% in the last 2 months.
Have had the same thing. Been feverishly trying to establish where the hole is on our side... no luck. Have not seen too many people confirm this, that's why we have been so concerned that the problem lies on our end of things.
Wonder how many others have seen substantial drops in on-line sales in Oct/Nov?
Friends with bricks and morter stores are saying this is a really quiet period and many small shops have shut down.
Things are not looking good.
Here is Canada the economy is expanding nicely, and it is booming like never before in Alberta. Employers in Alberta can not find employees no matter what wage they offer.
I am stocked up and ready to go-- and we are barely seeing any more activity than a usual - no-holiday- month.
My fingers are crossed.
Though are sales are mostly US based - we are up 168% for October and even more so for Nov so far - Xmas 2005 kicks BUTT so far!
Having suffered through Jagger, I can't say how much of that is due to reluctance to buy or what.
Hope you have all done better!
Have a good festive season.
