Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Game Plan (GPLH), a line of nutritional supplements sold online exclusively through a network of personal trainers, showed strong revenue numbers on Black Friday, as data emerged showing a sharp increase in spending on e-commerce sites, while in-store spending dropped $1.7 billion from last year, according to the National Retail Federation, a retail trade organization (The New York Times, December 1 2013 http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/02/business/economy/gloomy-numbers-for-holiday-shoppings-big-weekend.html?_r=0).
Game Plan transformed the way fitness industry professionals supplement their income. Using Game Plan’s online and mobile tools, trainers can sell Game Plan’s proprietary nutritional supplements directly to their clients and earn commissions. This e-commerce business model allows for simple online ordering, which data shows is the preferred method of consumers during the busy holiday season. Overall, online marketplace sales grew substantially on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday this year, up nearly 20 percent Thursday and almost 19 percent on Black Friday, according to IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark, which tracks about 800 retail websites in the United States (The New York Times, December 1 2013 http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/01/business/thanksgiving-openings-take-sales-from-black-friday.html). Mobile traffic was also up, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all online activity on Black Friday, said Jay Henderson, the strategy director for IBM Smarter Commerce, which put out the online retail data (The New York Times, December 1, 2013).
Andrew Bachman, Game Plan’s CEO said, "The opportunity to disrupt a large industry is at our fingertips, and we believe Game Plan is positioned for growth. In our business it’s evolve or die, who would you rather be, Blockbuster or Netflix?"
The continued rise of e-commerce kept shoppers at home, allowing total e-commerce sales to reach $20.6 billion in the first 29 days of this holiday season, ComScore Inc. said yesterday (Yahoo Finance, December 1 2013 http://finance.yahoo.com/news/holiday-online-sales-hit-20-232442310.html). Game Plan’s business model has begun to generate revenue. Game Plan believes this is in part due to the convenience of company’s online and mobile platform which does not require any travel during the busy holiday season.
