The Black Friday sales have went into over-drive this week and will climax on Friday. Not just shoppers are following the Black Friday deals and sales event, but also investors. For retailers the Black Friday sales season is crucial. If they do not manage to get shoppers attention to sell them their goods they will miss their numbers for the year.
In a report on the Wall Street Journal, UBS analyst Roxanne Meyer says "No one (retailer) can afford not to play on Black Friday. Black Friday alone can be more than 10% of the holiday sales. But the season is far from over. You can't call the winners yet."
To lure shoppers into stores retailers not only do that with dazzling Black Friday ads, they also hand out free snacks for showing up in the middle of the night.
As Black Friday moves online the Black Friday marketing on the web and in social media networks becomes crucial. See our report on how Twitter is used for Black Friday.
Currently I see Walmart and Amazon in the lead for a very successful Black Friday and holiday business. Both companies create the most buzz around their Black Friday sales events and promotions already all month long. Even if you are not a Black Friday nut, check out the deals on Walmart and Amazon now and on Black Friday. You can save real money especially on hot consumer electronics and toys.
