Cyber Monday is right around the corner. Affiliates and eTailers are preparing themselves for what they hope will be a very lucrative holiday season. Cyber Monday is a term that was coined last year and refers to the first Monday after Thanksgiving.

<a target="_new" href=""><img src="" alt="mall shopping" align="left" hspace="10" width="183" /></a>Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving is typically the biggest shopping day for brick and mortar stores. <strong>That's a day I stay away from malls - or should I say Mauls</strong>?

So is Monday November 27th going to be the biggest online shopping day this year? Nope. The peak online shopping days last year were from December 5 to the 15. The biggest shopping day in 2005 for eCommerce was December the 12th. Cyber Monday was just designed by to get online retailers excited and it marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season online.

According to an article over at <a target="_new" href="">eCommerceTrends</a> <strong>most shoppers on Cyber Monday will be shopping from work</strong>, much to the chagrin of their employers. The most popular products online last Holiday season were <strong>jewelry, consumer electronics, gourmet food, furniture and home decor</strong>. Let's see what happens this year.

Happy selling! ;-)
