Well-anticipated global sale events of the year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are prime opportunities to get in early on personal shopping wish lists and gifting ideas for loved ones. And what better way to find the latest Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals than seeing them pop up on your Instagram or Facebook feed. 

So what’s the best social media platform to post Black Friday ads and Cyber Monday sales? Let’s find out. 

The best platforms to post Black Friday and Cyber Monday ads

There’s no better time to boost online and in-store sales than on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But choosing the right platform to promote your Black Friday ad and Cyber Monday sale can make or break the number of transactions. 

Before posting your Black Friday ad or Cyber Monday sale video, consider who your target audience is, where they’re most likely to consume content on, and what platform most of your sales are already navigated from. For example, if you’re aiming to target millennials, Gen Z, and even baby boomers, create a TikTok hashtag challenge or jump on a TikTok trend when creating your Black Friday ad. Determine which video platform best suits your audience. There’s no right and wrong answer, it’s all completely up to your business.

If you’re opting for sponsored content, make sure to consider your budget and sensible ad dollar spend

Easy Black Friday and Cyber Monday ideas for any business

1. Create a gift guide

If your products are gift-appropriate, make a guide that helps your customers make a purchase. Maybe it’s a short video with ‘gift ideas for your best mate - woof!’, ‘the secret Santa gift when you don’t know what to get!’  

2. Gift with purchase

Sweeten the deal by enticing customers with a gift with a minimum spend. Easily create a Black Friday ad or Cyber Monday sale video about the promotion then post to a social media platform of your choice. The deal will hopefully draw customers to view your online store. 

3. Make it extra

Extend your Black Friday sale all weekend through Cyber Monday, but don’t tell the carrot drop until the start of each day. You can even discount certain items each day to keep customers tuned in to your website or social media. Create a series of short videos to drop each day of your sale period. 

4. Sneak peek

Give your customers a hint about what’s to come, so they take note of when the deal is going to drop. Create a short video or with some teaser content. 

5. Work with your database

So you’ve batch-created loads of videos to share, accumulating likes and shares on social, but don’t forget to nurture your customer base with a few handy email reminders too. You can use already made Black Friday ads and Cyber Monday sales videos to pumpkin spice up your email or e-newsletter. Deliver key Black Friday sales messages shortly and sharply.
