Attend our Webinar to learn how to boost sales in this 2021 holiday season.Product Update
The holiday season of 2021 is approaching, and it is both frantic and joyful. As a result, it is becoming increasingly important to plan for a retail store and an e-commerce business. We understand this, which is why FireApps has partnered with Shopify, Clever Ecommerce, Avada, and ReferralCandy to host a webinar to share knowledge and experiences on how to optimize your marketing strategies to boost sales and achieve more goals in the future.
So, first and foremost, let me explain why we chose this time to host a webinar.
We take a look at some important holiday e-commerce statistics for 2020:
The conversion rate during the first week of November was 15% – 20% higher than the fourth week, despite the fact that traffic was 35% – 40% higher than the first week.

According to Adobe Analytics, online sales in the United States during the 2020 holidays increased 32.2% from the previous year, totaling a record $188.2 billion as shoppers stayed at home and shopped online during the pandemic.
The following are some forecasts for holiday sales in 2021:
E-marketer predicts the holiday retail sales in the United States will rise 2.7% to $1.093 trillion in 2021, while ecommerce sales will rise 11.3% to $206.88 billion. Ecommerce will account for 18.9% of total holiday retail sales, an all-time high.
The holidays in 2021 will be markedly different from those in 2020. Certain behaviors will mirror those of last year, while others will persist – and even strengthen – in the post-pandemic economy. Identifying these behaviors and planning accordingly can help retailers stay ahead of the competition.
Every year, the holiday shopping season is a hot topic due to the benefits it brings to online retailers. That is why we are excited to decide on a webinar for all merchants worldwide to gain more experiences and better plan what to offer to your customers in order to increase sales.
Join us as we present to Shopify and e-commerce merchants around the world on the topic “Get Ready For A Booming Sales Season”.
Our agenda is broken down into four sections, each with its own speaker.
1. Section “Have a clear goal”
The first installment, titled “Have a Clear Goal”, will be presented by Wilson Ho of Shopify. This section will go over the previous year’s statistics, numbers, and trends in 2021.

Email ROI is amazingly high at 4,200% (For $1 spend, you can expect a gain of $42 on average). (Orberlo statistic)
Text messages have an incredibly high engagement rate (90% of text messages get read within three minutes of delivery), SMS ROI on average is 500%. (reported by Forbes)
