Orlando, Fla.—In a pandemic year nothing, absolutely nothing is the same. Shoppers are starting to search for deals much earlier this year and many businesses have changed. First of all, by now, we truly hope you have jumped into the e-commerce wagon, since this seems to be the name of the game for the longer while.
Well, Black Friday sales not new, setting up a holiday sale is just a fraction of the equation — successfully marketing these discounts to persuade the highest amount shoppers is the real challenge, and we know consumers expect deep discounts and special offers on one of the world’s biggest shopping days.
It is not too late to implement a few tips and strategies that could help your small business stand out and take advantage this holiday season.
Given the tough competition you are already encountering ahead, consider doubling down on your online investment with targeted social media ads about Black Friday sales, discounts, and other special promotions. You may also want to try experimenting with new ad audiences, to convert typical offline Black Friday shoppers to online.
Collect subscribers by offering access to sales— For example, as Black Friday gets nearer, you can thank those subscribers with an extra discount or early access email.
Make Your Sale Memorable
Keep in mind that every single online retailer is fighting over your prospects’ attention. Black Friday makes the competition more fierce than ever.
Simplify the payment process
Make sure to offer flexible and/or multiple payment options like Square, Paypal, Apple Pay, Shop Pay and others, in addition to typical manual credit card entry, you’ll help reduce the amount of time shoppers spend entering personal information at checkout: a major obstacle to purchase completion.
Invest in the post-purchase experience
Black Friday is not the end of the season, it’s just the beginning! Make sure the rewards you offer your shoppers on Black Friday and Cyber Monday are not a one-and-done experience. Continue to communicate with the subscribers you’ve collected after the holidays are over with personalized and timely SMS and email communications.
