  • Black Friday Campaign: The Black Friday campaign is where the retailers try to get as many consumers through their doors as possible. As well as discounts, they may run other types of marketing, such as social media ads, TV ads, and online ads.
  • Cyber Monday: Many retailers will take the opportunity on Black Friday to also promote their sale items on Cyber Monday. This is generally a day when consumers can shop for bargains on the Monday after the sale.
