    Online holiday shopping will increase 17% this year
    With all the doom and gloom around the election is good to hear that there is a projection for another increase in online shopping this Q4:
    In a new report, eMarketer also predicts high use of daily deals and other discounts, and says that many consumers will research online before buying gifts in stores. An e-commerce expert echoes the holiday forecast.
    Great opportunity for affiliates to post discounts, Free Shipping and tax savings (for non-nexus state merchants).

    EMarketer says online holiday spending this holiday season will account for 24.3% of all U.S. retail spending during the period. “Consumers will turn to the Internet to stay within their budgets, locate hard-to-find gifts and avoid crowded stores,” reads the report, “Online Holiday Shopping Forecasts and Trends.
    Maybe we will see the day when stores are not crowded and they were begging us to come in with more deals.

    Consumers will have more daily deals and limited-time sales to choose from. In 2011, about one of five shoppers bought a holiday gift via a daily deal site, eMarketer says, citing data from web measurement firm comScore Inc.
    Already seeing Black Friday requests, expect it to actually kick-off mid-November with leaked deals.

    Sounds very promising. I am finalizing our holiday promotions this week with some aggressive deals for these types of sites.
