The previous thread about Black Friday became difficult to navigate, so I’m starting a new thread JUST for your offers and promotions. I want to make sure we don’t miss anyone who wants to take part.
To reiterate, we’re hoping to run a Black Friday promotion on 27 November that you can get involved in if you want to. It won’t be sold as a bargain “buy, buy buy” discount promotion – instead we’re looking it as a chance to attract the attention of online shoppers on possibly the busiest internet shopping day of the year. We’ll be emphasising the skill, craft and love that goes into handmade items.
If you want to get involved, you can either:
Set up a % discount for your whole shop using the code BLACKFRIDAY and let us know the discount amount in this thread.
Or, to help those of you who have said a shop-wide discount isn’t feasible, you could just put a few items on sale (even just one). Just add something like “offer”, “special price” or “sale” to the title and include the previous price in your description. If you’d rather do that, can you let me know by posting a link to the item here.
Some sellers have asked if they can be included if they offer free postage, so we’d like to extend the offer to that too. Again if you can make sure all the listings with free postage include the words “free postage” or “free shipping” in the title, it will make it easier for shoppers to find them. And can you please add a link to the item/s below to help us find them.
I’ll list the offers that you have all already told me about below, so you don’t have to repost them. If you could just check they are right, that would be great.
If you want to continue the discussion about Black Friday, please do that in the previous post, not here. Thank you!
