Overall of the Half-Year E-commerce Calendar

This Half-year E-commerce Calendar 2022 points you to opportunities which can capture you customers attention. When it comes to events and big dates in 2022, we can't make 100% plans, but we already know that limiting public gatherings doesn't mean the festivities are over.

As you plan your e-commerce events and activities for 2022, you may want to focus most of your efforts towards the end of the coming year. Jam-packed with big sales events like Black Friday, Cyber ​​Monday, and Christmas, the fourth quarter may feel like a sprint from a planning perspective.

Winning the game, however, was slow and steady. Maybe it's time to get up to speed, but there's no need to "sprint" in the last three months of the year. Instead, your best strategy may be to spread the word about your events and activities consistently throughout the year.

Every month counts and offers sales potential. Check out a few examples below:

  1. July: Summer Sale Season, Canada Day, Independence Day (USA), Amazon Prime Day.

  2. August: American Family Day, International Cat Day, Book Lovers’ Day, International Dog Day.

  3. September: Back to school, Jewish New Year, Oktoberfest, Self-Care Awareness Month

  4. October: Coffee Day, Halloween, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Canadian Thanksgiving

  5. November: Remembrance Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Thanksgivings

  6. December: Saint Nicholas Day, Green Monday, Super Saturday (Panic Saturday), Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s Eve.

December is a bit of a weird month, there's a mixture of people who've already done all of their holiday shopping throughout November, especially Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Then there's us... We've been working hard with clients throughout November to even have got a chance to check out any Black Friday deals and we've left it until the last minute to look for those last-minute gifts.

Make sure that when you're promoting any sales throughout December, let them know of any lead times and delays to avoid any Christmas day upsets.

  • 4th December – National Sock Day

  • 12th December – Green Monday Day

  • 17th December – Super Saturday

  • 18th December – US Free Shipping Day

  • 24th December – Christmas Day

  • 31st December – New Year’s Eve

Conclusion

Exploring new sales opportunities and options often allows sellers to plan and balance the sales between markets, spread the risk, and make the most of diversification.

The holiday season is a great chance to boost sales and customer engagement. However, you need to prepare yourself in advance to make sure everything runs smoothly. Having an e-commerce holiday calendar will help you strategize special promotions, social media posts, and email campaigns and get the special design ready for these potential upcoming events.
