Today is CyberMonday and in this hemisphere, it means the busiest online shopping day of the holiday season. Fox News reported that 61 million people are going to be making purchases online today. Traffic here has been good, but it’s not off the scale.
As I was reading articles about Cyber Monday, most talked about how most people would be using broadband connected fast computers AT WORK to make their holiday purchases today.
Last Friday, eBay was making a pitch that you should sleep in on Friday instead of going to the mall and that you could (of course) find everything you need for the holidays on eBay.
This got me thinking: The majority of people who read this blog are entrepreneurs who don’t have to sneak off to go buy stuff online during the work day instead of doing it at home, but there are hundreds of thousands of people who would like to be netpreneurs sometime in the next few months or years… and they could benefit from starting right now, writing articles at night or on their lunch break to begin the multi-month, multi-year grass-roots process of building up a level of qualified visitors and traffic to their website that can be monetized at a later date.
Ok, that’s a stretch, I admit it… :-)
