In addition to giving you some Black Friday product examples, I’m also going to tell you about why Black Friday is such a big event for ecommerce, and which products perform the best on this crazy day!
Black Friday Ecommerce Statistics
Black Friday has grown into one of, if not the most significant online shopping events throughout the year. On this day, loads of people are looking to snatch some discounted products off of the web.
It is a day of opportunity for shoppers, but maybe even more for you as an online store owner!
In case you are not convinced about Black Friday being one of the largest online shopping events of the year, let me show you some statistics:
- In 2019, 93.2 million buyers were shopping online on Black Friday in the US
- Black Friday reached $7.2 billion in online sales in the US alone
- $2.9 billion of those sales during Black Friday were made through mobile phones
- The average adult plans to spend $400 on Black Friday sales
As you can see, the potential is definitely there. It’s up to you to make the most out of it!
Also, don’t forget that the online spending this year will likely be even higher because of the current (Covid-19) situation. Some people will do their shopping online instead of going to shopping malls. So, it’s great for ecommerce store owners like us!
What makes a winning Black Friday product?
Of course, some products on Black Friday have more potential than others.
So, before showing you our list of the 10 best Black Friday product examples, let me walk you through some of the things we have looked at to decide whether or not a product fitted in our product examples list:
- High profit margin: As an online store, you want to attract as many customers as possible. On Black Friday, the way to attract the most customers is to have the best deals. The average discount for products on Black Friday is 37%, so you will need a product with a high profit margin to compete with that. The higher your profit margin, the higher the discount can be without selling at a loss.
- High perceived value: Products with a high perceived value are worth a lot of money from the customers’ perspective. Examples are watches, cosmetics, perfume, drones, smart home devices, and kitchen appliances. These products are amazing to sell on Black Friday since you can set up a high discount on them.
- Medium- or High-ticket products: Sometimes, people who aren’t in a rush with buying a particular product or don’t have the money for it will intentionally wait for the Black Friday discount before buying it. This happens the most with high-ticket products since they are the most expensive, but it can happen with medium-ticket products as well.
- Evergreen products: Evergreen products are products that have a steady interest in them throughout the year. These products often do really well during Black Friday because shoppers already have had an interest in them during the year. So, they already want to make the purchase, and often the extra discount will make them pull the trigger!
Products with these characteristics have the highest chance of selling well on Black Friday, in my opinion.
When looking at the table of contents of an article about the best Black Friday deals of 2019, we can indeed see that products with the characteristics I described above are seen as the best deals.
The best Black Friday deals above are split into product categories like TV’s, beauty, smart home, earbud, smartwatch, toys, and appliances. These products often have high margins, high perceived values, and usually cost more than $50.
This is why most online stores can sell these products at such discounts; they are probably still making a profit!
