Cyber Monday Marketing: Influencers Utilizing Creative Strategies to Drive Sales

Cyber Monday Marketing: Influencers Utilizing Creative Strategies to Drive Sales

The holiday shopping season is set to reach unprecedented levels, with Deloitte’s 2023 Holiday Retail Survey projecting a 14% surge in spending. This averages a total spend of $1,652 per shopper—an increase surpassing pre-pandemic levels. As we near Cyber Monday, we are seeing an anticipation for shoppers to gear up to spend. However, this mindset is largely shaped by the expectation of sustained high prices due to inflation. As a result, many influencers have shifted their Cyber Monday marketing efforts to speak to the cost-conscious consumer.

A recent survey conducted by Shopify and Gallup found that 34% of shoppers plan to leverage holiday deals as an opportunity to stock up on everyday essentials. This shift in consumer behavior signals a pragmatic approach—a conscious effort to capitalize on holiday deals to secure essential items and maximize savings in the face of rising prices.

TikTok Sees a Surge in Cyber Monday Mentions

TikTok statistics in the last 30 days reflect an 875% surge in mentions of “Cyber Monday.” This spike in interest is backed by a 0.83% click-through rate and an impressive 48.15% conversion rate. This highlights a strategic and engaging approach to online shopping.

A significant factor contributing to this surge is the introduction of TikTok Shop. TikTok Shop allows creators to seamlessly integrate shopping experiences into the platform. Through TikTok Shop, influencers can showcase products and directly link to products, simplifying the consumer journey to purchase.

@kayzieweedman I will be the first to tell you that I did not know a thing about TikTok Shop, how to use it, if the deals were as good as they looked… But I decided to take the dive when I saw cleaning products I already use at a huge discount. It was so easy and everything was delivered right to my door (talk about EASY!) TikTok Shop is also having a huge Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale with thousands of items up to 50% off from Nov. 14th-27th so now is as good a time as ever to get those deals!
