Five Tips for Cyber Monday Success

Over the years, Cyber Monday has become a huge opportunity for hotels to drive bookings. What started as a one-day online shopping holiday that followed Black Friday, has no extended to weeks before Thanksgiving or even some sales lasting the entire month of November.

In 2018 Cyber Monday sales hit $7.9 billion, a 19.3% increase from the following year (Adobe). While businesses are making more, consumers are also planning to spend more.
