List your holiday sales offers online to get more sales:
1. Deal Websites
Shoppers are looking to grab the best deals for the holiday season. It is a good idea to register your presence in deal websites, where many holiday shoppers flock to get their hands on the hottest opportunities to save. These deal websites list merchants of all types and sizes and are a popular destination for customers who are on the lookout for deals and coupon codes.
Go ahead and make your presence felt in deal sites and communities that are popular crowdsourcing or product curating mediums. Such sites give you a great opportunity to introduce your products and promote your deals.

2. Facebook Ads or Social Selling
Almost all consumers are on Facebook. Join relevant Facebook groups that are a hub of potential customers and engage your audience by posting about your products and special offers.
You may want to assess Facebook Groups using these different criteria:
- Public or closed group: Ideally closed groups are the best networks to join, as there is a risk of spam in public groups.
- Number of members: What is the number of group members? Does the group succeed in engaging them? Likes and comments on each post may give you some idea about engagement.
- Relevancy: Is your store or product relevant to the interest of members? What about language or location? Are there location-specific issues? Is language a barrier?
- Posting guidelines: It is important to acquaint yourself with posting guidelines, especially how the group moderates promotional posts.
You will need to use relevant keywords, such as Cyber Monday Sale or Black Friday Deals, to search Facebook Groups to join and spread the word about your products and offers. It is also important to consider vertical-based searches to grab opportunities that work best for your industry or products.
