In a little more than a month’s time, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming around again! 

If you are an online retailer, you should already have started preparing yourself for one of the craziest week of the year.

If you still need to sort out a quick marketing plan to make the most of this long weekend, we have put some tips together for you: 

  • Send a Black Friday email announcing your sales to customers

  • Consider creating a special “Black Friday” landing page

  • Share the word on Social Media 

  • Initiate a referral programme (people love to hear recommendations from other buyers) 

  • Add a countdown (this will influence customers in making a quicker purchasing decision) 
     
  • Offer a free gift for big purchases

  • Launch a new product for this timeframe only
