What is the best way for businesses to stand out when everyone is promoting Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?
WT: Consider starting a day early and invent your own Black Thursday!
AM: Make sure your deal stands out externally and internally. Do your research: see what promotions your competitors have run in the past and keep an eye out for advertisements that catch your eye. Through this process you can make sure your business has a deal that stands out and creative that is eye-catching. Update your site: Just because a customer makes it to your site doesn’t mean the process should end. Throughout your site you should ensure that they can see the deal and that it correlates to the advertisement that got them there. Remind them of the promo codes and other promotions.
If you don’t have a graphic designer on your team, this is a time you want to hire someone externally. With so many people promoting a similar sale, it is more important than ever that your ads look good and stand out.
