Thanksgiving Week

Hello fellow surfers. I see the holiday season is quickly approaching. This upcoming Thursday will be the day Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. It's a day filled with food and football for most people and a time that families reflect on all the things they are thankful for. I think this is a good time to show my thanks to all of you who have drop here.

I know some will be able to wake up early Thursday morning and put the Turkey in the oven and then have some time to sit back and surf; while others may be waking up early to bundle up the family and kids to make a long trip to visit relatives for their Thanksgiving feasts. The most important thing is to take time out from your daily routines and make this week special by spending more time with friends and family. Regardless if your plans will be geared toward the early part of the week or the end of the week.

The day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday in the States. This is when all the stores put out their best bargains of the year and shoppers wake up in the wee hours of the morning to brave the crowds at the malls and stores. Black Friday isn't a good day for us that like to market online, because everyone is out physically shopping for their Christmas gifts and bargains they seek. This pattern carries on through the weekend and not a lot of interest in online shopping.

Green Monday? This is the day Christmas shoppers start looking for deals online. The first Monday after Thanksgiving is usually the busiest, but every Monday until Christmas is peak times for internet users to buy things online. You can take advantage of these peaks if you start positioning yourself now. I'm not sure why it's Mondays, but it's worked out this way for the last several years and I'm sure this year will be no different. Now is the time you want to advertise. No matter what products or services you're offering, now is a golden time for luring new visitors to your interests. So don't let the cold weather and holidays be a excuse for slacking off right now. All internet marketers world-wide need to take advantage of the final weeks of 2008 and a lot of us can start the New Year off in positive fashion.

Good luck to all of your online promotions.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We don't have a celebration like this in my country. I guess I have to make everyday a thanksgiving day because there are so many things to be grateful for. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Malaysia is not celebrating it too. We only have "Tadau Ka'amatan" to praise for the Rice God. But it's only celebrated by minority ethic in Malaysia. That being said, I don't think it's a problem for me to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving :)

It's about 3:30 am here in the states. I'm sure someone is just getting out of bed, and getting ready to brave the long lines at the big sales today.

Great advice on the marketing.
If you sell or make any items or goods, this is the time to put out the big bucks for advertising. It will be worth it in the end! :)
