http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-autumn-winter-sale-type-image27407282According to statistics by Adobe, US consumers spent a record-breaking $2.4 billion on Black Friday last year. That’s billion with a “b”! However, according to research by TechRadar, Black Friday this year is predicted to have an even bigger spending average. It’s no wonder more and more businesses take advantage of this promotion-friendly holiday. Running a successful Black Friday promotion can be exciting, but can also cause a lot of stress for business owners and marketers. That is why I’ve created a list of 3 easy Black Friday email marketing tips to help your business bring in the big Black Friday bucks.

Give Your Customers an Awesome Offer

Black Friday shoppers are the ultimate bargain hunters and they have high expectations of steep discounts and sales. People will start researching products and prices weeks in advance just to find the best deal. So, it’s up to you to give your customers a great deal if you want to attract attention. Create a Black Friday-themed email campaign that presents shoppers with a few offers they won’t be able to refuse. It is understandable that many small businesses aren’t able to match deals that big companies offer. If you can’t offer a similar discount, you can try offering extra incentives instead. For example, if you own a flower shop, offer as much of a discount as you can and throw in a free delivery service or free flower arranging class.
