www.socialmediacreatives.com the new free do it yourself social media creative design website,is assisting small businesses to get the most benefit possible from the upcoming black Friday (25th of November 2016)with a contest to promote early creative campaign start and good creative designs for black Friday sales.
Black Friday is a day when most big online businesses make the highest sale on a single daywhile few small businesses take the advantage.
The main reason why most small businesses don’t make much sales taking advantage of the black friday, is because most small businesses start campaign late and don’t use professional social media designs to engage their audience daily long before black Friday. The late campaign start and poor social media creatives, results in low/ poor brand awareness and visibility ,leading to poor patronage for small businesses ,during the black Friday opportunity.
Total value of transactions on Alibaba's Singles' Day shopping festival on November 11 2015 was estimated at $14.32 billion, big Nigerian e-commerce brands also earned revenue in multiples of what they earn daily.
