With the constant increase in online sales and shops across the world, it only makes sense that events that provide huge discounts and incentives to buy them would crop up. Similarly to Black Friday, we have Cyberday. This is a period of time during which most online shops will provide a slew of great deals for buyers to utilize. However, it should be known that the times and practices differ depending on the country, so let’s see how it’s expressed in Chile.
So how does Cyberday work in Chile?
Cyberday is an exceptionally good day to get deals. It was conceived all the way back in 2005 when online shops saw spikes in sales around Thanksgiving. Since then, it has only grown in presence and popularity.
While Americans usually have their Cyberday, or Cyber Monday as it’s also known, around Thanksgiving the dates are different in Chile. Specifically, Chilean Cyberday usually takes place during May. It can extend from May all the way until early days of June but it firmly occupies this timeframe.
Chilean Cyberday usually sees a ton of high sales and profit is always to be had. The last Cyberday generated over 600 million in sales, the next one is expected to outperform that. So let’s check what are some common things to consider about Cyberday.
1. People mostly use phones
You’d imagine a lot of people would be using computers to do these purchases during Cyberday. However, the research has shown that most of the sales are completed through phones. The phones do represent a much more convenient and simpler way of purchasing whatever we wish to without wasting too much time.
With just about any smartphone you can wrap up any sales you want. Additionally, you can do it from anywhere. Rather than having to be seated at your computer, you can commit to shopping even while out and about. This also makes any seller focus on providing an equally enjoyable experience no matter which device is used, otherwise the buyer may be turned off by inconvenient sites.
The websites should be approachable to everybody willing to make a purchase. That’s why mobile versions of these sites are usually designed in a sleek way so that it can easily be navigated. Sites like ebest.cl showcase a simple yet high quality example of what every seller should be aiming for.
2. Knowing how to snipe discounts is key
For most people, huge sale events like this are approached pretty nonchalantly. They expect to find the deal they are looking for no matter the time they end up engaging with the whole event. This is usually a pretty bad mindset to have. Sure, you may snatch something but knowing beforehand what to go for is key to getting out with most money saved.
First, you should have a list of things you aim to purchase. Impulsive purchases are fine but the things we really need should be written down. This way, it’s easier to orient oneself before going into the shopping spree.
Secondly, you should explore the stores of interest early in which case you’ll find yourself getting in early for the sales. The understanding of online stores is important to keep up with the speedy change in available items and new sales.
3. Cyberday increases in sales constantly
Cyberday is an event with increasing sales. As you can gather, the overall practice of giving people a day where everything has a nice deal bundled in leads to this practice being reinforced. Because Cyberday was made a proper event, more and more people kept flooding in.
Everybody is on a hunt for discounts constantly, setting an event that’s bound to give away a ton of great discounts is an ample way of attracting a ton of people. These people then purchase something and spread the word, increasing the number of buyers next year.
It’s no surprise then that the sales made on Cyberday constantly increase. Along with new buyers come new discounts and deals that people go mad for, leading them to repeat the cycle of bringing new people in. The constant flow of people and sellers is what should be capitalized and utilized. The more of either there are, the better the versatility of the entire event becomes.
4. TVs are one of the most sold items
The most hefty sales are frequently found on electrical items. This is usually what people wait for discounts the most, considering the pricing on electrical items. Quality discounts and insane deals are the biggest deal for such a high spike in electrical device purchases during Cyberday.
The most purchased of all electrical devices are TVs. Of course, TVs are something everybody uses. Whether you are young or old it’s guaranteed you’ve a reason to purchase one. During Cyberday, they go for extremely small amounts of money, allowing for great savings for everybody. The versatility of TVs, considering most other items can be hooked up to them, probably adds to the popularity of this electronic device as the most sold one.
Basically, if you are aiming to buy a TV during a Cyberday you should be quick on your feet. No matter how many models are on sale they’ll more likely than not fly by fast. Make sure to grab them before they all disappear.
You’ll need to be wary with other electrical products too due to them being highly sought out but the TVs are the ones that’ll provide the most trouble.
5. It’s all about those impulsive purchases
Despite us suggesting you make a list and all that it’s important to understand that by nature there will be a ton of impulsive purchases. We can never know what thing will catch our eye and as such we should simply go with it. Obviously, with some caveats.Making a budget and keeping it strict is the best way to stay out of potential debts and excess spending. Everybody who fails to do so may feel a bit of a sting on their wallet pretty fast.
Of course, snatch some of those great deals up because it’s the best way to bolster interesting purchases. There are a myriad of possible small trinkets that can come in handy or simply look nice that we can snatch up.
