BACK TO SCHOOL 2016 : Sales and Marketing Guide [INFOGRAPHIC]
Most people don't realize that Back-to-school season is the second largest retail holiday, but it clocks in at $828B in sales, with parents spending an average of $606 dollars this year. It accounts for 68% of Q3 sales, and so if you're a brand that caters towards the back-to-school crowd, you should really bring your A-game.
The majority of shopping happens in August, but it continues all the way into September, so there is still plenty of time for brands to put some fuel to the fire! Our advice would be to target dads and kids! These two demographics in particular are like the red-headed step-children of Back-to-school marketing because most brands are busy trying to get in front of moms.
The reason this particular approach is smart is because 59% of moms say that their purchase decisions are influenced by what their kids want. And when dads are in charge of the shopping, they are spending 37% more than moms!
Read on to learn more fun stats, trivia, and tips on rocking the back-to-school season in this infographic by our friends over at The Shelf.
