Most shoppers complete their Christmas shopping during Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The holiday season is an important one for Amazon sellers. This infographic explains all of the facts eCommerce sellers need to know to prep their stores for the holiday season.

Remember, some of these holiday strategies are evergreen, so feel free to use them for your 2020 holiday season too. Some evergreen holiday strategies include: taking advantage of higher traffic, optimizing content for higher conversion rates; boosting PPC and SEO for better organic traffic; using email campaigns (which have higher conversion rates over the holidays); and remembering Green Monday—the second Monday in December—as an important day to make sure you have holiday sales or offerings for.
