How should businesses use social media to promote their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?
AM: Social media is an awesome tool to get your customers excited about these deals. We recommend that in the weeks leading up to BF and CM you either promote a preview or a count down. When the sales are live, continue to promote on social media regularly, with relevant hashtags. When you promote or boost these posts on social media it can give you access to an audience that you normally wouldn’t see, or if you are retargeting, it will give the consumer another chance to visit your site.
