I’m betting you have a list of reasons why you aren’t interested in promoting a Black Friday special.
- I can’t afford to discount my prices drastically.
- I don’t have a ton of inventory.
- I wouldn’t know where to start.
- I don’t have the business model that makes sense to run a Black Friday special.
- It’s just too much work to my already overloaded calendar
These are all legit concerns. It IS a heavy lift. You to think and execute a promotion that makes sense to your bottom line.
However, you might want to participate after listening to the audio below. There are sooooo many benefits besides earning revenue. Sure, sales is a great thing! But as a small business owner you want to learn how to connect with your people intimately – and Black Friday specials can help you do just that.
So listen to the audio or read the short list below:
Did you offer a Black Friday promotion and get less than lackluster results? Perhaps it was your first time and you are totally disappointed that no one purchased. Or you have tried Black Friday sales before but are still not seeing the numbers you want.

I know. I know. There are 50 things that you want to sell. And probably 100 things that you are good at providing.
Don’t. It’s too confusing.
Share only three services when you talk to new prospects. People get confused when you are offering too many options. And they will move into the indecision mindset (aka won’t spend money) rather than buy from you.
Consider the last time YOU had to make a decision with too many options.
If you find selling hard, let me offer a suggestion which could make it easier:
- Stop talking
- Start listening
Yes, stop telling people what you do. Don’t tell them your title. Or what your service offers. Or how many different colors, sizes, bells, and whistles your product comes with. And definitely don’t use industry terms to describe your business like everyone else does.
Curious about how it works?
you have no shortage of good ideas. Ideas are great. But the big difference for those that have successful businesses is their EXECUTION of the good ideas. And how do you do that?
Starting a business is a funny thing. You start out with one idea and before you know it…it’s blossomed into a multi-national $40 million company with 10,000 employees. You are making moves and raking in the dough.
Why? Because you have no shortage of good ideas.
And ideas are great.
But the big difference for those that have successful businesses is their EXECUTION of the good ideas.
And how do you do that?
