I remember back in my youth excitedly day dreaming about my piles of Christmas cash (probably around £40) and what bargains I might pick up in the Boxing Day sales. Queuing outside freezing in a post Christmas haze picking up anything because it’s 75% off and that’s a steal! Yes, of course I do really need these 5 identical black t-shirts. Not any more, we are savvy online shoppers now! Black Friday & Cyber Monday is vast becoming an important weekend in our yearly consumer calendar. Black Friday was the biggest shopping day of the 2015. The idea being to kick start our Christmas gift shopping with a plethora of offers, discounts and one off bargains.

But like anything you need a strategy and a campaign. You can read all my top tips here over on Sage UK : Black Friday Small Business Tips
