Tips for Printing Postcards for Black Friday
First, make sure to look for an online printing services that can create high-quality postcards for you at an affordable price. Next, keep these tips in mind when printing Black Friday postcards:
- Send the postcards with plenty of time to spare before the actual holiday. If you already have a mailing list or if you want to send one postcard to every door within your zip code or a mail carrier route, do it a month or so before the actual date of your Black Friday sale.
- Create a postcard with a catchy headline and an attention-grabbing design. Entice customers to spend their money by designing a postcard using bold colors and a screaming headline. Why should shoppers visit your website or your store on Black Friday? How much discount can they get? Are there many varieties, products, or services available? Tempt them with phrases like 50% off, buy-one-get-one, or free shipping.
- Do not forget the QR or promo code. Your goal in mailing out the postcards in the first place is to entice as many people as you can to visit your online or actual store on Black Friday. When you mail the postcard, there should be something in it for them – which can only be achieved using QR codes or promo codes. The higher the discount is, the more customers you can attract to purchase your products or services.
- Extend any promotions that you have to “Cyber Monday”, or make the whole week “Black Friday” in your store.
By following these tips, you can use postcards to market your Black Friday sale, and have customers flocking your store on that date.
