— M-Connect Media, a leading eCommerce firm which provides solutions in Magento development, today announced the results for a Black Friday sales analysis they conducted using data collected between 2011 and 2015. Based on the statistics from this research, M-Connect Media hypothesized that Americans will likely spend $1.876 billion in online shopping on Black Friday 2016, that $600 million in sales will come through mobile devices (including phones and tablets combined), and that Black Friday 2016 will be the 2nd largest shopping day of the year.
"Shopping trends will never remain same, as they are constantly changing year by year. The trends generally depend upon customers' shopping behavior. On Black Friday 2014, 78 percent of shoppers searched for online products and 41 percent of online shoppers purchased products from a new store. In addition, mobile shopping became the biggest shopping trend in the year 2015 with 36.2 percent of online sales on Black Friday," says Dar Parmar, an eCommerce Business Consultant at M-Connect Media.
"As ecommerce experts that have been providing solutions and studying consumer behavior for more than 7 years, our data analysis leads us to predict that online sales will be 13.27 percent higher in 2016 than 2015's Black Friday Sales, and we expect to see online spending increase to nearly two billion dollars. Also, we are expecting about $600 million of sales coming from smartphones and tablets. All of this predicted spending means that Black Friday could emerge as the second biggest online shopping day in 2016."

Parmar concluded with the advice that retailers should have some necessary modern features on their web-store such as a mobile friendly website, multiple shipping options (including free shipping), online chat support to help their customers in real-time, an optimized checkout process, and a speedy website. They should also prepare a backup plan or strategy which could help them during rush hours and server crashes.
