1. Online sales are growing faster than offline sales Consulting firm Deloitte forecasts a 14% increase in non-store sales, driven largely by the web. In contrast, overall holiday sales are expected to increase just 2.5 to 3% over last season. According to the National Retail Federation 2011 Holiday Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, nearly half of consumers (46.7%) will buy online, up from 43.9% last year.
2. The web influences almost half of offline purchases More shoppers are than ever are checking a store website before heading out to the physical location. Forrester Research predicted in its U.S. Online Retail Forecast, 2009 to 2014 report that the web would influence 48% of 2011 in-store sales.
3. Holiday shoppers research more online in a shaky economy Consumers use the web to research price and availability of products to purchase both online and in stores. According to the same 2011 NRF holiday survey referenced above, the average holiday shopper plans to do 36% of their shopping online - whether they're comparing prices, researching products, or actually making a purchase. And data from Experian Hitwise indicates that website traffic increases in a troubled economy because buyers research purchases more carefully online to stretch shopping budgets.
4. Online is a major source of inspiration for gift shoppers
When beginning the hunt for holiday gift ideas this year, our own research - just released Halloween - reveals that 21% of U.S. shoppers browse retailer websites for inspiration while 29% peruse physical stores. And the younger the consumer, the larger the role the web plays...
5. Consumers planning to spend more on holiday shopping have an affinity for digital channels Our research also found that shoppers intending to buy digital gifts - ebooks, music downloads, Facebook credits, and the like - are more likely to increase their gift budgets over 2010. While only 15% of all consumers plan to spend more this holiday season, a whopping 30% of digital gift shoppers will do so. Those purchasing digital goods also have bigger budgets, $440 on average, which is 40% more than their non-digital counterparts. The vast majority of digital gift spend will happen online.
