Direct Mail Marketing Strategies for Black Friday Promotions

Are you ready? Black Friday is coming.

One of the Biggest Shopping Days of the Year

The day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday, kicks off one of the biggest shopping days of the holiday season. 

 

Between the coronavirus, increased adoption in online shopping, supply chain woes and several retail giants choosing to remain closed on Thanksgiving, retailers didn’t know what to expect during the five major online shopping days between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday. While the Cyber 5 period looked much different than previous years, thankfully, that didn’t put a damper on spending. According to Adobe Analytics, online sales totaled a record $34.36 billion, up from $28.49 billion for the same period in 2019. ***

November and December make up 20% to 40% of annual sales for small to medium-sized businesses so make sure you are optimizing your ad spend. If you choose not to run a cohesive Black Friday direct mail marketing campaign, you could miss a large percentage of annual sales.

While consumers are opening their direct mail this November, make sure you’re integrating your Black Friday direct mail campaign with digital strategies.
