Why Black Friday & Cyber Monday is so important for businesses
The period of Black Friday through to Cyber Monday, commonly referred to as BFCM, plays an oversized role in determining annual revenue for many companies. Eager for deals, shoppers are prepared to spend big: a 2021 Dotdigital study found that using “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” in marketing email subject lines increased CTR by a massive 64%.
Given the economic turbulence of 2022, many shoppers will be looking for gifts, products and subscriptions during the sales period. Due to this, businesses that fail to compete strongly for BFCM interest will miss out on even more revenue this year.
Why Cloudways is the perfect partner for Black Friday & Cyber Monday
It isn’t sufficient to nail your BFCM marketing strategy. You also need to be completely ready to accommodate the resulting traffic and turn those leads into conversions, and that means ensuring your website is fit for purpose.
Managed cloud hosting from Cloudways can help by offering the perfect blend of affordability and performance. It makes migration simple, delivers outstanding speed and reliability, takes the work out of website maintenance, and even provides superb design elements at no extra cost through the Astra Pro bundle.
Don’t leave Black Friday & Cyber Monday to chance
With so much on the line, there’s no sense in taking a casual approach to this BFCM sales window. This is the perfect time to decide how you’re going to promote your products and services (using discounts, free gifts, samplers, etc.), and the 2022 BFCM Prepathon is the perfect event to help you make rapid progress.
