Launches Kickoff to Holiday Retail Season, with Unique Countdown Timer and Special Holiday Retail Content

Share Article joins with Oracle Marketing Cloud to provide strategic content that helps online retailers leverage top tactics in search, mobile, conversion and completions to entice shoppers and ring up sales

Third Door Media, publisher of Marketing Land and Search Engine Land, announces the launch of a special Holiday Retailer editorial section, backed by Oracle Marketing Cloud. This special section is aimed at online retail marketers looking to maximize sales during the make-or-break gift buying period of the holidays. The numerous articles, research and other content, collected under the title of Holiday Retailer, can be found on the website, within the Retail Channel, at

The Holiday Retailer editorial section also includes the official countdown timer to Black Friday, retailers’ official start of the holiday revenue season. The countdown timer marks the decreasing time left to plan and strategize before shoppers begin in earnest to spend online.

Holiday retail spending is predicted to hit $616.9 billion in 2014, a 4.1% rise over 2013, according to the National Retail Federation, so the holiday season is the one time of year where strong sales can make a retailer’s whole year a success, and a weak holiday sales season can spell disaster.

“Oracle Marketing Cloud has worked with retailers to leverage the best in marketing technology in order to analyze, target, engage and convert shoppers and build long-term online strategies,” said Andrea Ward, vice president, Marketing, Oracle Marketing Cloud. “We see our support of the Holiday Retailer Channel as an ideal way to help our clients and other retail marketers get ready for a successful sales season.”

Oracle Marketing Cloud solutions appeal to retail marketers as a way to facilitate interactions with customers and drive revenue. Integrated information gathered from Oracle Marketing Cloud’s cross-channel, content, and social marketing with management and AppCloud apps enables retailers to target, engage, convert, analyze, and use award-winning marketing technology and expertise to deliver personalized customer experiences.
