Holiday Shopping Boom: Online Retail Sales Up 19% over 2017
This year’s holiday shopping season was further proof that we’re in the right place at the right time with the UnFranchise and the Shopping Annuity – as online retail sales ballooned by 19% over the 2017 holiday season. As this article from Fortune.com points out, overall retail sales were up by over 5% this year during the holidays – but the most impressive growth obviously came from the boom in online shopping. Shopping online is so popular it’s only a matter of time before it becomes the standard way everyone makes purchases, and as online shopping gains momentum – so do UnFranchise Owners.
This year’s holiday season was a perfect example of the immense opportunity we all have as UnFranchise Owners to grab our piece of the pie – which in 2018 was a whopping $850 billion. It’s incredible to think people in the U.S. spent nearly a trillion dollars during the holidays – and just proves why it’s important to utilize our collective buying power as UnFranchise Owners. Just imagine if everyone who shopped during the holidays converted their spending into earing with the Shopping Annuity. Just one more reason why I’m thankful to be a UFO!
