Internet retail sales were up 15% during the Christmas season this year, compared with 2009, according to MasterCard Advisors’ SpendingPulse, a company that measures retail sales by all payment forms.
I always figured electronics were the area to focus for online sales for affiliates, but online apparel sales grew the fastest (26 percent), while electronics were up 12 percent. However, the report did not indicate the volume for either.
A big indicator this year for positive sales numbers was that daily online sales exceeded $1 billion on six different days, and that happened just three days last year.
And big news for Amazon, as they are expected to sell more than 8 million Kindles this year, which is 60 percent or more than analysts predicted.
That makes me which I had created a Kindle affiliate site or three.
