Use social media (and don't forget those Black Friday hashtags)

To promote the Black Friday Sale, you have several different partnership options.
Influencers can promote your brand in a big way - showing off your merchandise and telling their audience more about your brand with just a brief mention of the upcoming Black Friday Sale. This type of promotion should take place outside of the event and will help to extend your reach and gain all-important recognition.
Influencers also can strictly advertise your sale - telling people about the deals you will be running, when they will be available and the exact discounts. This type of Netflix advertising is best suited close to your actual event, rather than as part of your soft push.
