Prime Day 2017. 30 hours. 13 Countries. Hundreds of Thousands of Deals.
Amazon just announced its third annual Prime Day and 24 hours isn’t enough. It will kick off on July 10th at 9pm ET and run all day July 11th. The 30 hour event will be held in 13 countries – including China, India and Mexico. For those of you who don’t know, Amazon Prime Day is a one-day only global shopping event exclusively for Prime members. So, if you’re not already a Prime member, now is a good time to sign up.
The first Prime Day was in July 2015, as a way to mark the company’s 20th anniversary. Last year Prime Day was Amazon’s biggest day ever, rising more than 60 percent from the prior year. This year Amazon will be organizing deals by themes. This is a big deal because one complaint during past Prime Days have been that it’s really hard to find the deals you actually want to take advantage of. Also, be sure to download the Amazon App to get notifications when the deals you’re interested in are about to start.
Expect to find great deals on TVs, Kindles, Fire Tablets, Echo Speakers and more. Prime Day will also benefit entrepreneurs that sell on Amazon. The company said, about 40% of this year’s Lightning Deals will come from small businesses.
What does this mean if you are a seller on Amazon? Well, this is your opportunity to boost lagging summer sales and gain key customer insights to help prepare for the upcoming holiday season.
