Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the winter holiday season. Throughout the world, it is a time for giving thanks and sending Season's Greetings. This issue covers ideas for businesses celebrating Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Season Greetings.
Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States and Canada, albeit at slightly different times due to the date of the harvest for that area, and the holiday has become known today as a time to be thankful for a good harvest. Businesses extend this holiday to give thanks to their clients who have added to their success during the year.
Thanksgiving eCards are not only great for letting your clients know you appreciate them; but, some businesses send Thanksgiving eCards so that their wishes will not get lost in the 'Season's Greetings' cards that will arrive just a week or so later.
Send a Thanksgiving eCard that's meaningful and memorable. Here are some eCard ideas:
Black Friday follows Thanksgiving Day in the US and marks the beginning of the holiday gift shopping season. It is thought of as the busiest shopping day of the year. Most major retailers will open their doors ridiculously early in the morning (some this year are opening on Thanksgiving night) and offer steep discounts on certain items to get people into their stores. There are even 'Countdown to Black Friday' sales events going on right now!
Cyber Monday is a phrase that was coined in the early 2000's to refer to the Monday immediately following Black Friday. It was discovered that many consumers were shopping online for bargains the Monday after Black Friday. As the Internet has become more a part of daily life and smart phones offer a convenient way to shop online, many online retailers are having Cyber Monday sales in addition to Black Friday sales.
The Internet enables companies from all over the world to participate in Black Friday and Cyber Monday antics and to grab a slice of the Thanksgiving pie. Any company can join in by coming up with their own Black Friday or Cyber Monday special. It doesn't matter if you sell products or a service, you can still have fun with this concept.
