Create a sneak peak
By showing off less, can intrigue your target audience more. You can show your audience just a few of the leading products that will be on sale before the sale date. 
You can add these to your newsletters, promote them on Social Media, create a pop-up on your website, create a video and a lot more to start doing this. 
Reveal a new product
Do you have a new product coming? Now might be the time to reveal it… People love new and fresh products. You should take this opportunity to start selling your new product and can even help entice previous customers back to your store. 
Offer early-bird discount
Use existing data, such as your mailing list, to send out an update to all of your audience informing them of your Black Friday sales. To make it sound a little bit more exciting, offer a sneak peek of the discounts and offer them a discount code so they can access the sale a day or two before the public.
Promo video
Whether this is a countdown video or a video featuring your products on sale –  a week in advance, create a promo video advertising your Black Friday sale. This can help generate more hype around your sale and get people prepared. 
Exclusive Black Friday post
Prior to the sale, create a post and a paid advert on your Social media channels with a showcase of some of your featured products that are on sale during your Black Friday sale. This encourages people to stay tuned for the sale to start and gets them waiting.
TikTok Influencer
