50 SMS & Email Templates for Your Black Friday & Cyber Monday Campaigns

The biggest sales week of the year is just around the corner, and by now, you must be frantically gearing up. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday should be something retailers are thinking about day and night, with online merchants even more so.

Many eCommerce brands have already started rolling out their best deals, so you need to make sure your business stands out in the busy crowd. Naturally, one way to do this is to reach customers directly, communicate with them one-on-one, and win them over with great deals, catchy copy, and a strong CTA.

We’ve prepared for you 50+ SMS & email templates to help you do just that, starting now and until after Cyber week is well behind us. 


Black Friday Warm-up: November 4th – 12th 

If there’s one thing that's certain is that every year Black Friday promos start earlier and earlier. Make sure your brand cuts through the noise early on so that when the actual day comes, it remains top-of-mind for shoppers. Launch a teaser campaign, give them a sneak peek into your special Black Friday collection, or simply start the conversation by reminding them about the day that’s just around the corner.

Black Friday: November 25th

The day is here! Starting today up until the Wednesday after, you should go big and bold on your discounts, copy lingo, and CTAs.
