I LOVE to shop on line. Between Nordstroms, Amazon, and Stampin’Up!  I have a pretty constant stream of boxes being delivered each week.

It is easy, fast, convenient, and I adore being able to shop in my jammies. Can I get an Amen?!

We are quickly coming up on the biggest online shopping opportunities, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, yee haw!!

Stampin'Up! black friday, buisness tips, direct sales

In addition to doing shopping for yourself, don’t forget this opportunity to reach out to your customers and grab their attention.

The issue is how to compete for their energy. I never want to wait and see if/what Stampin’Up! is going to offer. And even if they do offer something, it is always good to take the opportunity to sweeten the deal.


So what to do, what to do?

My go to is always retired products. I know you have a studio full of retired products. Well, this is the time to unload those goodies to someone who will appreciate and use them.

My most successful Black Friday deal has been to put together goodie bags. A small one for a $50 order and a large one for a $100 order. It can be stamp sets, cardstock, embellishments, paper pumpkin kits…whatever you have stocked away can make great goodie bags for your customers.

Take inventory of your stash.

Figure out what you can put in each bag, take pictures, get ready NOW!

If you are worried about orders overtaking the number of bags you would have you can always limit it to the first 10, 15, 20, etc orders.

Black Friday is a fabulous opportunity to encourage people who are already in the shopping spirit to spend a little bit of their cash with you


it gets even sweeter if you can clear out some of those retired items taking up space and creating clutter.

Make your plan now, be ready, and lets Rock Black Friday!
