EP248 - Cyber 5 with Salesforce's Rob Garf 

Rob Garf (@retailrobgarf) the VP of Strategy and Insights, Retail and Consumer goods at Salesforce. Rob also earned a 10/10 from @ratemyskyperoom which makes me extremely jealous.

Cyber Week online sales unfolded in the pattern we expected after the first three quarters of the year. Digital sales surged an unprecedented 71% in Q2 globally and significantly grew 55% in Q3 globally. We forecast 30% growth for the entire holiday season, November 1 – December 26. For the largest two digital days of the season, specifically, Black Friday came in right on target with 30% growth and Cyber Monday grew at a lower rate of 18% year-over-year (YoY) globally.

We cover key trends, including changes to holiday behavior due to Covid-19, winners and losers, mobile trends, promotion trends, and omni-channel tactics.

Vivek Pandya is the  Senior Digital Insights Manager at Adobe.

Data from Adobe, which uses Adobe Analytics to analyze one trillion visits and 100 million SKUs from 80 of the 100 largest retailers in the U.S., found that consumers spent a whopping $34.4 billion during this year’s Cyber Week, which represents a 20.7 percent year-over-year (YoY) increase. Unsurprisingly, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday represented the bulk of total spend over the five-day period.

EP245 - Shipageddon DeepDive

On October 3rd, we published episode 238 and coined the term “Shipageddon.” We were talking about the likely e-commerce peak we expected from the holiday, on top of the e-commerce peak we were already seeing do to Covid-19, and we felt like retailers were likely to run into shipping capacity issues. The term (and concept) have gained a lot of traction,  being featured print in the NY Times Brace for Holiday ‘Shipageddon’ Forbes, Bloomberg, and on the Today ShowNBC News, and many others.

In the subsequent 45 days, it’s become clear that we will have a last-mile capacity problem, with all major carriers implementing quotas, turning away new clients, and retailers struggling to entice earlier orders from consumers. Worse, we’re also seeing a lack of freight capacity to restock retailers with limited inventory, and a strong resurgence of Covid-19 threatens to generate even more e-commerce demand.

In this episode, we do a deep dive into the curate state of Shipageddon, the likely impact on holiday shopping, and best practices for brands and retailers to minimize the effect.
