How to Prepare for Black Friday Madness
The clock is ticking. Many shoppers are already looking for holiday deals now to avoid supply shortages. Make sure your website loads fast, your marketing strategy is on point, and campaign materials are ready to go soon.
Offer Special Deals
Consumers love a good bargain, and there are many types of deals you can create through your shop, like:
Discounts (percentage or cash)
Last year, people saved 24% on average during Black Friday sales. Pull up your spreadsheets or book meetings with your accountant and think about how much you can lower product prices while still making a great profit.
Make sure people know about these discounts by placing eye-catching banners on your website or storefront in a marketplace.
One of the main reasons people change their mind about a purchase and ditch their cart at checkout is an unexpectedly-high delivery fee. Offer free delivery to increase the chances of purchase. You can also add a minimum order total to get free delivery.
Abandoned cart discount
Offer a discount and provide a link back to your website to persuade customers to return to their carts.
Bonus tip: make the email more personal by addressing your customer by their first name.
Special promo codes
Invite people to subscribe to an email newsletter or engage with you on social media to get a unique promo code for Black Friday and Cyber Week days. This also gets you more leads for future sales.
Start an Email Marketing Campaign
Email marketing is still the most efficient way to connect with your customers and delivers a high return on investment (ROI). You can send them product recommendations, gift ideas, special discount offers, and even make a Black Friday countdown of your own.
Each merchant has a different strategy for marketing their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. In general, we recommend that you start preparing your emails now so you can send a teaser email one week before Black Friday, a launch email on November 25th, and a last-call email before the end of the sales.
Create Content to Promote Your Products
Finding the right gifts for your loved ones can often be a challenge. Help your buyers make decisions faster and create a blog post on holiday gift ideas to promote your products. For this, you can collaborate with established and trustworthy bloggers or feature it on the front page of your website.
Optimize for Mobile Users
If you have your own eCommerce website, optimize it for a smooth mobile experience. Last year, around 42% of all Black Friday shoppers turned to a mobile screen to buy goods.
Keeping track of all tasks can be challenging, so we’ve compiled a list of actions we recommend you take to ensure smooth, fruitful Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. You can mix and match any one of these.
Get Your Store in Shape
Great products, easy design, and fantastic margins mean you have everything you need for a great start to the holiday season.
