Black Friday and Cyber Monday’s impact as one of the best days to sell software cannot be underestimated. The occasion is a chance to promote your products for a sales spike that could even quadruple

This is why we’re breaking down what you, as a B2C seller, should be doing to win over potential customers this Black Friday.Gartner has stated that “by 2020, all new entrants and 80% of historical vendors will offer subscription-based business models

Why Consumer Products Are Suited To Black Friday

Should you be offering a discount on Black Friday, as a consumer-oriented business? Absolutely. This type of product can often be an impulse purchase, so a discount increases traffic to your site and ultimately conversions.

Fiplab offered a 50% off bundle last year, which was made up of five separate programs, each catering to a different niche. This allowed them to introduce their audience to new products, as well as upgrading them to those they know already.

But from our experience, we’d say to save yourself the engineering effort and utilize other methods like discounts and product bundling. One statistic that reaffirms the effectiveness of Black Friday discounts is how Sparkle tripled their revenue on Black Friday,
