Ecommerce & cyber Monday
Posted by: Curtis Stevens on November 24th, 2009

If you have an ecommerce business, then the Monday following thanksgiving is your black Friday, also known as Cyber Monday.  Black Friday is mostly for retail stores as consumers flock to buy exceptionally low priced deals.  As the weekend dies down, many shoppers go onto the web to make purchases on company time that following Monday, which is generally the biggest day for ecommerce businesses.  So what should you do?  For one, make sure your web site and everything is safe!  Getting hacked can place a lot of damage onto your company.  Make sure your passwords to your server that hosts your website is a long, very complex password that is very difficult to breach.  Next, make sure your shopping cart and credit card processing system is up to date with the latest patches. Lastly, check to make sure your own personal computer is update to date. That means any software updates for your operating system, anti-virus and firewall. If you do not have either one of those, go get one now! Lastly, keep an eye on your web site during the day on Monday so you can catch any glitches relatively quickly and resolve them asap.
