The Retail Email Seasonality Meter: Last week we got our first reference to New Year’s. The holiday shopping season kicks into overdrive this week with Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, which are followed closely by Cyber Monday. More than a third of all retail emails this week will mention Black Friday and the percentage of emails referencing the holidays should exceed 70%.
