GOSF 2015: The Biggest Shopping Carnival All Set To Roll
The Great Online Shopping aka GOSF 2015, which is one of the biggest shopping carnival the country has ever witnessed, is all set to roll from December 10. It is a three day shopping crazy world waiting with many exciting and amusing offers, both online and offline. Almost 300 stores are said to be a part of this shopping festival.
Shopping festivals was a not so common thing in India when people in the US waited for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale to come. It was the time when they made shopping to its extreme. Google discussed on this with many e commerce sites and brought into light the concept of GOSF, which has turned out to be the biggest shopping carnival in India at present.
GOSF was created by Google on December 12, 2012 in collaboration with a number of online sites with the aim of making aware of online shopping a more vigorous activity among the people of India. In this festival, online sites would list their product at a very much discounted price to attract the customers to do more frequent online shopping. This would initiate more sales for the shopping sites and people would get their product at reasonable rates.
Initially, GOSF was launched only for a single day. In 2013, Google extended the days two more, making it a three day shopping carnival, giving more time for the people to grab good deals.
GOSF 2012 was a one day window for the customers to fill their bags with good deals and offers. Major shopping sites like Flipkart, eBay, HomeShop 18, Indiatimes etc were a part of GOSF 2012. People rushed in expecting big sales alike Cyber Sale or Black Friday, but were disappointed. The deals were not so impressive. But, Google claimed it to be a success saying that it derived traffic and the sales data was impressive.
After getting positive responses for GOSF 2012, Google decided to host this shopping carnival for three days, making more room for the people to shop wildly. In fact, Google finally extended one more day, making it a four day festival due to the overwhelming responses from the people.
GOSF 2013 surprised to give an excellent result. It witnessed immense sales and huge traffic to all major shopping sites. The daily sales, overall traffic to the sites, number of new customers for each site, new registrations, double sales and lot more increased incredibly making the shopping bonanza a huge success. All the major stores drove huge traffic and sales.
GOSF 2015 is commencing from December 10 this time and all hope it to be a bigger platform than last year. More stores when compared to last year are on roll to compete in sales this year, which shows more shopping and more sales can be expected this year. This will help in showcasing more varieties and better discounts when compared to previous years.
Almost all major shopping sites have already come up with GOSF offers. This shows how aggressive shoppers are in creating more awareness about their deals pre GOSF. The main highlight is that the product will be delivered on the same day which has received a warm welcome.
This year there are much more attractions added to make the festival more colorful. These include Play The Game And Win GOSF Deal, Win 14 Minutes Free Shopping, Exclusive Launch Corner, Rs.299 Corner. Read more on them...
