Most Cyber Monday 2011 Sales start already on Sunday.
Cyber Monday is the first work day after the Thanksgiving weekend. The term Cyber Monday, which was created by Shop.org (part of the National Retail Federation) made it into the retailer marketing strategies back in November of 2005. Cyber Monday has established itself pretty well over the years as the online shopping day of the year offering the best deals. Last year Cyber Monday surpassed $1 billion in online sales.
Shop.org got the idea of Cyber Monday from the behavior of shoppers to buy online the first day back at work after the long Thanksgiving weekend. This year this origin of Cyber Monday gets distorted again as most retailers actually are now launching their Cyber Monday 2011 Sales already on Sunday. A trend that started last year. Employers should be very happy about this. Employees will less likely use their work time for deal hunting online. This earlier start of Cyber Monday is similar to what happened with Black Friday. Black Friday Sales started already on Thanksgiving Day. Most Black Friday online sales started during the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day. Even several In-store Black Friday Sales events already started on Thanksgiving Day.
