The TV commercials have started, that means that Holiday Season shopping is now well under way. Halloween marks the turning point and Black Friday is just over one week away on November 25th. However, there are 38 days left until Christmas and there’s still massive opportunity for brands to reach and influence consumers at scale.

There’s an abundance of growing research that points to mobile as a buying tool during the Holiday Season. Below are some highlights from credible sources.

Digiday points to research suggesting that shoppers will take to their mobile browsers and apps to prepare for the Holiday Season.

Adobe study reports that 20% of total holiday season shopping revenue will be generated from smartphones

PWC reports that consumers are turning to mobile devices for shopping and hard to access segments like Gen Z who are heavy mobile users may be best reached via that channel.
