Dec 14 - Amazon's Peak Holiday Shopping Day

    Nelle Hoxieposted 8 years ago

    People are probably tired of my plan ahead strategy (or nagging), but I just read an article where Amazon announced that Dec 14 was its peak holiday shopping day - so I've marked it on my 2010 calendar. As well as Sept 14, 2010, which is when I want all my Christmas specific content up and running - which means that I'll have solidified my 2010 Christmas product strategy by July 1 and have begun working on it while still wearing my flip-flops.

    If next year follows the same pattern as this year, in 2010 Amazon's biggest shopping day will more likely be Dec 13th.

    Nelle,

    Your post is an excellent example of why it's important to keep on top of what companies that you support through affiliate marketing are doing or what information they are sharing.

    I believe it's thinking like that that helped coin the phrase "staying one step ahead of the game" wink

    I had such a successful Christmas at Amazon (closing in on 300 dollars earned with a relatively small number of Hubs), I plan to push extra hard next Christmas.

    Nelle you are a gem. True IM'ers have a solid stratgey with dates marked and everything planned and that is what makes the difference . I am sure you will reach your goal of $5000 in one month in December.
    Great advice and I am going to work on my plan and strategising too
