Even if Black Friday is months away, the hype has already begun, with reports on where consumers can find the best deals gathering pace. But consumers aren’t the only ones who should be preparing, brands should be too. Because the earlier and more prepared they are, the better they’ll perform during this massive eCommerce event, which is getting bigger every year.

Establishing measurable and attainable goals is crucial for every marketing and business effort.

Your customers are social, plugged-in, and savvy. Selling to them is not an easy task. Usually, you would hear: focus on features and benefits, but you have to stop that! Stop hyping up your copy. Instead, sell your product on a subconscious level, and you’ll have customers drooling with desire before they know what hit them.
