Black Week 2021 – The review



The Black Week 2021 has come to an end and with it hopefully the most successful month of the year. Now the question is how successful it was. As in the last Black Friday articles we use Tradedoubler data to analyse the Black Week event.



The increase through the Black Week


We compared Black Week data with the week before (CW46) to illustrate the differences. The result is impressive! As you can see the number of sales increased by over 50%. In addition, the average order value increased by 25% and total order value by over 90%. It clearly indicates that people are willing to spend more during Black Week than during normal weeks.

If you compare the generated order value to last year, the uplift is with 22% exciting as well.

Black Week 2020 and 2021 comparison


If we compare Black Week this year with last year, we can see that Black Friday is the most relevant day for affiliate marketing during this week. And this although discounts are already available from Monday.

The use of mobile devices


As we show you in our Black Friday development article, online shopping is moving more and more towards smartphone use. Black Week this year showed that again. Almost half of all sales were made with mobile devices.

We hope you were able to make November your strongest month of the year!
