3. Keep it simple

Avoid adding too many details. A lot of information may break the communication. Opt for simplicity and make sure the message is clear, concise, and direct. Remember that Black Friday resources’ intent is to persuade users.

The message must be hierarchically organized. Focus on the main idea, which is Black Friday, and make it the center of the composition. The reason is obvious: Black Friday converts. You can also emphasize the fact it’s a limited offer that only lasts one day.

4. Mind the composition

Black Friday compositions are usually symmetrical and include framed texts. Framing the text serves as a visual support and it leads the attention directly to what you want to emphasize. Keep the composition clear for successful communication.
