Black Friday is a great day for shoppers trying to grab bargains for their Christmas shopping. Shoppers are willing to spend a great deal on ‘bargains’ if they believe they are getting better value for money. As a result, Black Friday is also a great day for retailers, but in order to maximise the potential, retailers MUST prepare in advance.
More than half of all internet shopping transactions are made on mobile devices so it’s safe to assume that a large number of consumers will make their Black Friday purchases on their mobile. When you are sending marketing campaigns, you want to know that your message will be delivered and read and not lost amongst the myriad of emails from retailers vying for the shopper’s attention.
The most effective way of standing out from the crowd is by sending SMS text messages. Delivered directly to the shoppers’ handset within a matter of minutes and with an average read rate of 98%, SMS is a game changing way to communicate your Black Friday offers.
