The answer is hundreds of thousands. Ok, that’s a massive drop off from the major e-commerce Christmas season which runs from September to December but it’s a lot more than zero.
It shows that it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, in the online marketing game, but it could quickly become too late.
Google searches for Christmas related items in the toy, home and furniture industry doubled last year from August to September, so it’s important to have a Christmas strategy in place in time for the run-in.
All Christmas related search activity peaks in November but stays high thanks to last minute shoppers through December. It won’t surprise you to know that activity plummets in January, but the beaming July sunshine shouldn’t prevent you from giving some thought your yuletide marketing strategy.
eBay has revealed that in August 2013, almost three million searches on the site featured the word “Christmas”.
