Does Your Business Need A .blackfriday Deal?

Get ready because the shopping day of the year is almost here and e-commerce is all part of it.
Historically Black Friday has been reserved for physical locations and Cyber Monday is the day for chart-topping e-commerce sales, but in the same way that Black Friday has become Black Thursday Afternoon, Cyber Monday starts on Black Friday. Confused yet?
Many major e-commerce sites have begun to offer online deals for Black Friday in the same way that physical stores have offered doorbuster deals. So we can all heave a sigh of relief knowing that we don’t have to brave the cold weather or bust doors to get the same deals from our home computers or smartphone screens.
If you happen to be a retailer you could be offering an awesome deal on Black Friday to grab some attention for the kick-off to the holiday season. This doesn’t mean that you have to redesign your entire website, but rather use social media and creative domains instead to promote your existing online store.
For example, offering Black Friday coupon codes can quickly spread through Tweets, Pins and Facebook posts. Your customers will flock to take advantage of your discount and tell their friends and family all about it.
Another quick and easy way to get into the Black Friday spirit is with a .blackfriday domain. This easy web address ending can direct customers straight to your Black Friday subdomain. By creating a separate site you will be able to deactivate the link once the sale is over for a quick and easy Black Friday experience.
Below are a few more helpful tips for online businesses to rake in the post-Thanksgiving dollars:
