Thanksgiving marks the start of the countdown to the two busiest shopping days of the year: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you want to see record sales, you need to start planning your Black Friday marketing campaign well in advance, meaning now.
Traditional marketing tactics still work, but as more and more customers do their shopping online rather than in store shopping, you can't rely only on discounts and deals to attract new customers and boost sales. Having a well planned out marketing campaign for Black Friday and Cyber Monday is your ticket to record breaking sales this holiday season.
In 2021, online brands earned $10.7 billion in revenue on Cyber Monday alone. Black Friday received $8.9 billion in sales. The revenue that brands bring in from the Black Friday and Cyber Monday rush has stayed consistently higher than pre-pandemic levels, this is due to the increase of shoppers surfing the web for holiday gifts from the comfort of their homes.
The Black Friday weekend starts after Thanksgiving (November 25th, 2022) and continues the following week with Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday deals. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest shopping holidays of the year. Black Friday is typically when shoppers start their holiday spending in earnest, while Cyber Monday is when many people take advantage of online deals before the Christmas rush.
To start, we’ll let you in on this secret: 91% of consumers are more likely to shop with brands who recognize, remember and provide relevant recommendations. What does this mean exactly?
Asking questions and getting answers from your audience is a great way to engage them and collect first party data, you then will be able to use that valuable information to better serve your customers.
Instead of your customers scrolling for hours searching for the perfect holiday gift, asking your customers a couple of questions through an engaging experience can draw them in and provide them with a recommendation that will be relevant to them. This is a fantastic way to increase brand loyalty and customer satisfaction.
Though matching your customers with a product is the most popular form of marketing, there are several other ways to increase your sales, boost conversion rates, boost engagement rates, boost lead capture rates, etc.
You are able to engage your customers and receive the same results by using any of these experience types.
When we say extremely high rates, we mean it. On average, 85% of users who take a Jebbit experience go all the way through to the end, completing it.
Interactive experiences are key to driving conversions because they allow for a two way conversation. This is the best way to get to know your customers and what they want, all while providing value.
Jebbit experiences provide consumers with entertainment, saving the consumer time, testing their knowledge, giving them a recommendation, unlocking a benefit, and/or educating them.
When you focus on understanding your customer's needs, motivations and triggers - it allows you to develop a much deeper relationship with them, understand their individualized preferences and cater your content, products and services directly to THEM as an individual; not just as another faceless customer.
The key to a high converting, personalized and valuable experience is to focus on the customer's individual needs - and the best way to do that is to ask questions that get to the root of those needs.
Jebbit allows you to lead consumers down unique paths based on how they answer initial questions. Asking straightforward questions will identify the basic information needed and allow for a more specific outcome as users are guided through the rest of their interactive engagement with your brand.
