Amazon brand New "Prime Early Access Sale"
Amazon will host a brand-new, two-day shopping event that is only open to Prime members on October 11 and 12. The Prime Early Access Sale will be quite similar to Amazon's Prime Day, which took place earlier this year.
For Prime members, the company would provide "hundreds of thousands" of offers in popular categories including fashion, toys, fashion, home, kitchen, pets, and Amazon gadgets.
amazon announces a second prime day event
Amazon Prime Day last July was Amazon’s biggest ever, with 300 million items purchased globally by Prime members over the course of the two-day event. The numbers are quite impressive:
- Total US online spending reached $11.9 billion, an 8.5% increase year over year, per Adobe.
- Insider Inteliggence's analyst Andrew Lipsman said Amazon needs more Prime Day-type events as commerce slows and these occasions offer a long-term advertising adoption
- The most popular category among US consumers was household essentials, which were purchased by 30% of Prime Day shoppers, according to Numerator.
- Health & beauty, consumer electronics, apparel & shoes, and home & garden rounded out the top five product categories.
What to expect from the new prime day event
Selling on Amazon can be challenging, even for the most established Brands with long-standing relationships with the giant Marketplace. It is expected that this new Prime Day event will be the unofficial start of the holiday season, and it will be as big as July's event. As Brands are getting ready for the holiday season, it's predicted that the biggest sellers will be gifts and bigger items.
