What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is a marketing term used to describe the Monday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It was created to encourage people to shop online, and it has since become one of the biggest online shopping days of the year.

On Cyber Monday, retailers offer significant discounts and promotions on a wide range of products, including electronics, home goods, clothing, and more. Many retailers also offer free shipping and other incentives to encourage shoppers to make purchases online.

Cyber Monday has become a global phenomenon, with retailers around the world offering online sales on the same day. The term has been adopted outside the United States as well, with many countries hosting their own Cyber Monday sales.

The growth of online shopping has made Cyber Monday an increasingly popular event, and it has become an important part of the holiday shopping season. As more and more consumers turn to the internet to purchase gifts for their loved ones, Cyber Monday has become a key opportunity for retailers to drive sales and reach a large and engaged audience of shoppers.
