The Results Are In: Is Cyber Monday Still Relevant?

The holiday shopping season got off to a strong start this year with Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday all reaching new records, with an increase in online sales at 32 percent, 26 percent, and 17 percent respectively. Online traffic is growing leaps and bounds, but does Cyber Monday’s digital growth, seemingly stunted compared to its offline counterparts, spell disaster for the cyber-centric holiday? Not exactly.

According to Adobe’s 2014 Digital Index Online Shopping data, Cyber Monday online sales in the U.S. totaled $2.65 billion, overtaking last year’s Cyber Monday as the biggest online shopping day in history. While many observers, from journalists to analysts, have speculated the death of Cyber Monday, we think the data tells a more valuable story.

Cyber Monday is not dead, but as consumer preference shifts, the concept is becoming obsolete and brands will have to adjust. The term “online shopping” is becoming redundant terminology for “shopping,” period. This is because the gap between online and offline consumer behavior is closing.
