The holiday season is here, and it’s time to start checking people off your holiday shopping list. Even though it’s becoming easier and easier to shop online, the majority of shoppers still hit the streets the old fashioned way. That’s not to say that shoppers aren’t utilizing the internet to make their holiday shopping a little easier. Google found that during the 2010 holiday season 67% of consumers researched purchases online before they made them.
Done are the days when shoppers would wander the aisles aimlessly until something stood out as a present for one of their relatives. Consumers spend hours online trying to find the best deals in their area. I’ve heard of instances where shoppers have spent more money on the gas to drive across town then the actual savings they made venturing to an alternate store.
As shoppers perform more and more pre-purchase due-diligence, stores must do more and more to grab the attention of shoppers. Old fashioned advertising is still popular, but new online methods for standing out are emerging as well.
