Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Email Marketing Campaigns
The most hyped sales weekend of the year has come and gone—and we’re all still gasping for air! What a whirlwind. We hope yours went off with a bang (and a flurry of sales).
But what are the best examples of email marketing on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Here’s a small selection of our favourites:
Teaser and urgent follow up
MAC teased their customers with a promise of three extra samples with their order, as a well as a big discount. This tactic warms the customer up and gets MAC on their radar before the big day.

This exclusive perk also helps to promote benefits of being a member of the loyalty scheme.
Behavioural targeted offers
In this example as the recipient shopped for products within in home and kitchen last year, they’ve been targeted with a selection of products from this section:
Standing out in the inbox is vital during Black Friday and Cyber Monday – competition is fierce. We hope these examples will inspire you to get creative with your BFCM email campaigns.
