Here are some good ideas for promoting your Black Friday catering or events deals….
Create a smart discount strategy: You’ve seen the deals over the past few years. 5% or 10% discounts just won’t cut it anymore with the enormous savings your customers expect to make. Match the market with some of your own amazing deals without losing a profit at the end of the day.
Offer discounts to other businesses on Black Friday: What about all those employees who will be working hard on Black Friday to run things smoothly on the craziest sale day of the year? They need to eat too — offer discounts on your catering services to businesses that you know will be needing to feed their diligent staff!
Gift cards at a discount: Give your customers a reason to help them and their friends splurge on an event. What better way to help them celebrate than by giving them a way to give their friends a discounted gift card on their next food order or event catering if they purchase your gift card now on Black Friday?
Group and party discounts: Offering to give a group discount is a good idea as well. You can grant discounts to parties of a certain number (for example, over 50 guests), on large amounts of group orders or event tickets. Increase your sales with higher incentives for customers!
Good luck and happy shopping! 🙂
