BLACK FRIDAY GOES MOBILE
I have found myself ordering online from my phone rather than my desktop more frequently. Black Friday was a travel day for me, and I did my shopping from the passenger seat of the car on the trip home. I wasn’t alone! US shoppers spent a record $1B via mobile on Black Friday!
Shoppers are using their mobile phones for everything. Black Friday 2016 saw an increase of 33% from last year, and this number is projected to continue to increase. This year 36% of all online sales on Black Friday were from a mobile device, and On Thanksgiving Day, 53% of all orders were completed on a mobile device.
The mobile search index will soon be the only Google index, shown to both mobile and desktop users, so let us know if we can help you make sure your customers can interact on mobile with you.
CANVA FOR NONPROFITS
Canva is a great tool for creating graphics and materials that make your organization stand out. Did you know Canva offers its premium version free to registered nonprofits?
As a way to give back to the community, Canva provides eligible not-for-profit organizations a free subscription to “Canva for Work” for team sizes of 10 members or less. With Canva for Nonprofits, you can bring your vision to life, and through beautifully crafted content, inspire a community to action. Find out if your nonprofit is eligible.
There is a free version of Canva for everyone, but the premium version adds features like custom templates and multiple team members. Like Google’s free program for non-profits, Canva’s tools help non-profits get results while being friendly on the budget. Pass this on to your favorite non-profit!
