In online retail, promotions and offers are an important driver of sales, and on Cyber Monday or the weeks leading up to Christmas a strong promotion can shift sales dramatically.

The critical piece of information in that equation is what the competition is likely to offer. While there’s no crystal ball, knowing what promotion competitors ran on their homepage and in email campaigns in prior years can provide valuable insight into what those companies might do this year.
