Increase In Website Traffic

Black Friday is once again upon us and website traffic is off the charts.

The spikes in traffic started last week already, where we saw a 54.92% increase in website traffic compared to a regular week. This could very well be due to the fact that many e-commerce stores had a so-called “Grey Thursday” sale with massive discounts.

This Thursday, the day before Black Friday, we saw an even bigger increase in website traffic. Compared to a regular week, traffic increased by 88.80%. Many e-commerce stores send newsletters to their email lists and VIP members where they offer pre-Black Friday deals exclusively to members. Judging on the spike in traffic, this strategy seems to be working very well.
