Cyber Monday

with 0 Comment
Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. The term "Cyber Monday" was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005, in a press release entitled "'Cyber Monday Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year".

 According to the Research 2005 eHoliday Mood Study, "77 percent of online retailers said that their sales increased substantially on the Monday after Thanksgiving, a trend that is driving serious online discounts and promotions on Cyber Monday this year (2005)".

In 2013, Cyber Monday online sales grew by 20.6% over the previous year, hitting a record $2.29 billion, with an average order value of $128. The deals on Cyber Monday are online-only and generally offered by smaller retailers that cannot compete with the big retailers. Black Friday is the best day to get cheap deals on technology with nearly 85% more data storage deals than Cyber Monday.

The past Black Fridays saw far more deals for small appliances, cutlery, and kitchen gadgets on average than Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is larger for fashion retail. On the past two Cyber Mondays, there were an average of 45% more clothing deals than on Black Friday. There were also 50% more shoe deals on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday.

Cyber Monday has become an international marketing term used by online retailers in Argentina, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Uganda, Japan, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Loadshedding schedule - What to expect next?

with 0 Comment
For latest loadshedding schedule: Type Group<Group No> and send SMS to 35001. (Example G1 for Group 1)

Its December and mid-winter is hitting upon in a few days time. Water flows in our rivers and reservoirs are gradually going down until the next monsoon comes to fill them up. In a country so dependent upon hydro power, this means alarming signs that loadshedding will soon increase.

The recent SAARC summit and agreement with the Indian PM during his visit to Nepal in August may give rays of hope that this age-old problem will soon come to a minimal one day, but that will surely take some time and has got many variables involved in it.

Last winter loadshedding peaked 84 hours a week - 14 hours a day. What figure it hits this time is yet to be seen. What we can expect is that loadshedding will increase rapidly in the coming days.

For latest loadshedding scheduke, Type G<Group No> and send SMS to 35001
