However, the last four months of this rare 2020 bring interesting challenges for social networks and e-commerce: Black Friday (November 27), Cyber Monday (November 30) and Christmas (November 30). According to Google data, ecommerce is expected to experience a growth of 23% thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday and physical stores are expected to see a reduction in sales of around 13%.

Create hype

Black Friday is a day marked on the calendar of brands, however, it is not only brands that put in place a whole marketing mechanism, but users also perform research in the weeks prior. 35% of consumers will start searches a month earlier and 31% two weeks earlier, according to a Google report.

However, even if you use that hashtag, you can create a different one for that day that will make it easier to stand out and invite your followers to use it. The hashtag should be clear, simple and easy to remember. Here's a silly example: #BFTiendasFulano. Oh, and remember to invite your followers to use it with some kind of incentive.
