Ok retailers, the countdown is on. One week from today, as many people gather together to eat turkey and watch football, many others will be shopping for holiday gifts on your site or in your store. It’s the unofficial kickoff for what is – for most retailers and brands – the busiest, make-or-break time of the year.

As we have in the past, the Salesforce Commerce Cloud Consumer Insights team will surface the key data-driven storylines from across the cloud on on these most important shopping days.

On the morning of Black Friday, we will report on Thanksgiving Day performance; on Saturday morning we will provide a report on Black Friday, and on Tuesday, November 29 we will report on Cyber Monday. Here is what you can expect from our unique Flash Reports:

  • What was this year’s growth rate?
  • How much more traffic did retailers see this year?
  • How mobile did shoppers Go?
  • How high did free shipping soar this year?
  • How deep were Cyber Week discounts?
  • What was the Biggest Day of the week?
