Get undivided attention from your customers

In the run up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, consumers get bombarded with emails and ads about Black Friday deals. Most of these will be ignored or unopened, leaving the revenue they could generate disregarded.

SMS marketing is the way for your business to cut through the noise.  SMS has an 97% open rate, compared to 21% for emails, meaning SMS are hardly ever ignored. Using SMS this Black Friday will enable you to reach your customers effectively, quickly and directly, leaving all your competitors’ deals ignored in the email inbox. 

SMS is proven to be both time and cost-effective, bringing your deals and offers in front of your customers’ eyes – exactly where you want them. 

Whether you send out an SMS campaign individually or via bulk, SMS is perfect for both last-minute or time-sensitive marketing campaigns and is a way to generate serious revenues for events such as Black Friday. 

How to ensure success during Peak Trading periods

Along with Cyber Monday, Black Friday has become the time when consumers want a great deal. Whether it’s for Christmas gifts, or something they’ve been wanting to purchase all year round, consumers are increasingly waiting for Black Friday to bag the very best deals on anything from electrical goods, clothes and toys, to holidays, cars and even insurance.

We conducted a survey to discover digital shopping habits across the UK, US, Spain, Australia, Italy, France and Germany. We highlight some of the main Black Friday statistics to give you an idea of how your customers could engage with your campaigns this year.

Here are some of the statistics we uncovered for this years Black Friday:

  • Most consumers will be reining in their spending so they can splurge in the Black Friday sales
  • Marketing messages sent via SMS or WhatsApp can lead to a purchase
  • Notifications of a sale, one-time discount or an item being back in stock are most likely going to catch customer attention
