Continuing with the topic of “Black Friday”, today I want to talk about how this can work for products and services.
Of course, it is easier for businesses that sell products to make special Black Friday deals. Services can be a bit tricky to offer on sale because they are not tangible goods.
But this doesn’t mean it can’t be done. You can still run a campaign to offer discounts. For example, one campaign could look like this: “We are offering 15% off all our services on Black Friday. Use this code XXXX to claim your discount.”
So, you can offer a percentage off or you can also offer free credit for a certain amount, let’s say that if people use the code you advertise, they get $15.00 off the total price of the service or services you offer.
Doing something like this can help with your business visibility and engagement. It would be interesting to know how many people actually claim the discount code or codes you offer.
You can also do it without codes. You can just announce that all your services will have a 10% off on Black Friday. This is a broader offer, which might impact more followers. Sometimes people don’t like using codes, so if they see that it is a general sale, without a code, they might feel more inclined to claim it.
Of course, as service providers, it isn’t always easy to offer a deal on a specific day or holiday. If we haven’t had a high-income month, we probably wouldn’t want to offer a discount, since it would mean we would get a lower payment.
On the other hand, a discount might help us out of the low-income circle we are in at the moment. Doing anything like this is always a gamble. You have to try different strategies to find the ones that actually work for you.
I’ve never offered a deal before, I think with translation is a bit difficult to offer a concrete deal. What about you? Have you ever done anything like this? If so, how did it go? Did it work for you? I cannot wait to read all about it in the comments.
Two companies that know how to make these kinds of deals work for them are Day Translations and Day Interpreting, which are offering unique discount codes, which are valid from November 1st to November 25th (Black Friday Day)! You may use the discount codes by clicking on the banners above.
