Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching. Companies pay millions of dollars to get that coveted 30 second commercial spot—and that doesn’t account for the cost to create the ads.

Today is Cyber Monday – the unofficial online shopping holiday. There’s no doubt that ecommerce sites will be slammed with increased web traffic as shoppers clamor for the best deals and deep discounts.

With the holiday season approaching, it’s time to finalize your strategy for handling traffic spikes.
