Pink Friday Promotional Ideas

Pink Friday is just around the corner… is your business prepared? 

Pink Friday is the small business spin on Black Friday. It is an opprotunity to #ShopSmallFirst before the big guys on Black Friday. 

We have you covered with some Pink Friday promotional ideas. 


Send or bring a flyer to:

  • Flyer in your front window

  • Find Facebook and Neighborhood groups in your area and do a promotional post in that group.
  • Flyer to local charity offices and offer for them to set up at your store or be mentioned during your live with a donation drive link on your site. Ex: local food bank
