In-Store Marketing On Black Friday

In-store marketing on Black Friday is critical for attracting and engaging shoppers, maximising sales, and creating a positive shopping experience.

Here are a few tips for you.

  • Eye-Catching Displays
    Use visual merchandising to promote your Black Friday deals and highlight your most popular products. Make sure your signage is clear and concise directing your customers to all your incredible Black Friday deals.
  • Staff Training
    Train your staff to be friendly and helpful, and to be able to answer customer questions about your Black Friday sale. Make sure they are aware of all the Black Friday deals, what the price is, is it a BOGOF (buy-one-get-one-free), and where in the store it is. Nothing frustrates a consumer more than floor staff or a cashier who does not know what is going on.
  • Logistics
    Have a plan in place to manage the increased customer traffic on Black Friday. Make sure there is enough space for the consumers to queue, consider assigning a few extra people to go and collect trolleys, manage the flow of consumers at the till, and make sure that the shelves remain stocked. Keep all the sale stock together and close by in the back area.
  • Samples
    Everyone loves being able to sample a product, especially something that is new on the market or a new flavour that has been released. Create a sampling experience that is inviting and informative and remind the consumers of the current time-limited deal on those products. Once again MegaWorxx can assist with both the stand and the brand ambassadors to make a sampling a success.
