Black Friday? Nah. Cyber Monday. Nope. Prime Day? No, the biggest shopping day of the year is Nov. 11. Why? Because that's Singles Day, which has quickly exploded in China into an ecommerce day that blows U.S. holiday shopping out of the water. On this week's episode, Adweek ecommerce expert Lisa Lacy joins us to explain how Singles Day became a $31 billion behemoth.
