Once again, today is Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and a lot of Americans are sitting around, still digesting their turkey & trimmings, and figuring out how to spend their weekend. I’m home with my family this Thanksgiving, and enjoying a coffee while many price minded American shoppers are taking full advantage of Black Friday sales in a hurting US economy.
Black Friday Sites
If you’re planning your Black Friday strategy today, check out Black Friday Online Deals. Also, the blog bfads.net (black friday ads) may come in useful. bfads.net is one of several sites working to index all the sales in all the Black Friday circulars, along with coupons for BestBuy, Wal-Mart and Sears. Other similar services include BlackFriday.info and BlackFridayAds.com.
One newer and more (excuse me for this) Web 2.0 oriented Black Friday site is BlackFriday.fm which includes Black Friday shopping tips and videos, Twits on Black Friday and affiliate links to Black Friday deals online.
Given that the majority of the links are via affiliate ads, I’m assuming that these sites really clean up during the last week of November. Is Black Friday a part of your online marketing strategy?
