POV: You’ve been building your list all year (right?), but now BFCM is around the corner, and you’re ready to ramp up your efforts and crush those Q4 metrics. 👊
We’ve got you.
Here are four unique ways to stack your list for Black Friday success and beyond. 👇
🥇 VIP Black Friday sale
Kickstart your Black Friday with a bang by running a VIP sale. Offer early access, extra savings, limited edition products, and more to entice shoppers to sign up for your VIP list. Create a dedicated landing page, direct traffic to it, and nurture your VIP leads with timely emails or SMS.
🔥 Hot new product drop
Announce a new product launch before Black Friday to get shoppers excited and on your list. Opt them in for special discounts or first dibs on limited editions. Use dedicated landing pages, organic social campaigns, and influencer collaborations to spread the word.
Leverage the power of referral programs. Offer your loyal customers extra savings or special gifts for referring friends. Send out email campaigns to your engaged customers and follow up with new leads during BFCM.
🎁 Exciting giveaways
Who doesn’t love free stuff? Run a giveaway to build your list. Ensure your offer aligns with your brand to attract quality leads. Use a dedicated page on your website for the giveaway, partner with influencers, and direct traffic to your page.
Maybe you have a Target RedCard, or maybe you’ve considered getting one. But we’re willing to bet the following question has crossed your mind: How can they justify giving up 5% on every purchase?
The answer is pretty simple: It generates a ton of incremental earnings. $560M per quarter.
Tandym, the enterprise-grade branded payment program for scaling brands, breaks down the numbers behind the RedCard program.
Branded payments are a solution held closely by enterprise brands as a way to get their best customers to spend more, so this is a rare look inside the business of enterprise brands and how they protect their share of wallet with the customers you’re focused on winning over.
With Tandym, you can use one of the big brands’ most closely held advantages and level the playing field.
TikTok recently launched TikTok Shop, which allows users to purchase products directly through the app. 👀
TikTok is aiming to empower brands and creators to connect with engaged customers through TikTok Shop’s shoppable videos and live streams, enabling brands, merchants, and creators to sell directly through the app.
They’re even offering a function similar to Amazon’s FBA, “Fulfilled by TikTok” to handle logistics, including packing and shipping services.
🎉 Sounds pretty good right? Absolutely, if your product qualifies…
TikTok recently released their report on prohibited products and the list is robust.
A few notable exclusions include:
TikTok is priming itself to become the newest ecommerce platform and it has the potential to reach a massive audience with a new wave of organic integration. Ensure you’re checking that your product is approved to sell before going all in on TikTok Shop.
