Preparation is Key: Don't wait until the turkey's in the oven. Pin down the specifics of your sale now. What treasures will you highlight? When and where will you start the drumroll? Past bestsellers and seasonal specials are usually a hit.
Tease Your Audience: Start whispering secrets about your upcoming sale a week in advance. Whether through social media, email blasts, or your Etsy shop announcement section, get the word out and the excitement up.
Creative Sale Concepts:
Sweeten the Pot: How can you add that extra sugar to the deal? Bundle up products, toss in a free accessory, or include a surprise sample. Be innovative—this is your moment to turn a buyer into a brand ambassador.
Don't Stop the Party Early: Keep the confetti flying post-Friday. Ponder extending the sale through the weekend or even the following week. Decide whether to announce this extension early on or surprise them mid-celebration.
Remember, many Black Friday purchases are destined to be gifts. A good number of these giftees may be unfamiliar with Etsy or your shop. Charm them at hello with a well-crafted packing slip—complete with a tempting discount code for their next purchase (a feature easily handled through Etsy's packing slip options).
This Black Friday, set your shop apart from the crowd. With these tips and your free guide, you're not just participating in the biggest sales day of the year—you're positioned to dominate.
