Wow, 2012 is here. Have you thought about how you will be making income online this year?

Online marketing is taking off bigger this year. Did you get the stats on how much was spent online for the holidays? It was off the charts, even in this bad economy.

Before and after sitting down to their Thanksgiving dinners, millions of consumers sat down with their computers, tablets and smartphones to take advantage of the many specials that online retailers offered yesterday, a day when most bricks-and-mortar stores were closed and e-retailers largely had a clear field to sell to holiday shoppers.

Millions found deals they could not resist on the web, and by the end of the day North American online retail sales were up a hefty 39% over last year, according to the IBM Benchmark monitoring service, which tracks sales from the web sites of 500 leading U.S. retailers.

While IBM does not estimate dollar sales, comScore Inc. estimated that U.S. consumers bought $400 million online on Thanksgiving Day 2010. A 39% increase would put 2011 Thanksgiving sales at over $550 million.

But " Cyber Monday," the Monday after Thanksgiving, is still the largest online shopping day ever, according to comScore. Sales for that day rose 22 percent from last year to $1.25 billion. Cyber Monday sales topped $1 billion for the first time last year.

The holiday shopping season can make up to 40 percent of retailers' annual revenue. The online sales data point to Americans' growing comfort with using their personal computers, tablets and smartphones to shop for the holidays.

Discounting and promotions have also boosted shopping.

So what do you think 2012 will bring? I for one, sure want to be ready for the increase. The real question is how to get in on the market? I learned a lot last year but learning is a process. We all have more to learn.

Who to trust?
How to Market?
What to market?
Where to get clients?


I am taking a class this year on becoming an online marketer. I will keep you updated on what I have learned and pass it on. We all will hopefully learn in the coming weeks.

Happy New Year. Success to us all!

Debi
