This #BlackFriday, SMEs will use the opportunity to leverage off the global hype to not only boost cashflow, but some will also use the holiday season shopping frenzy to market themselves, display their creativity and even give back.
Here is how some SMEs are participating in this year’s #BlackFriday.
SWEEPSOUTH, an online on-demand home cleaning service
This #BlackFriday, SweepSouth will be celebrating in a very different way, instead of giving their customers discounts, they will be using the day to give back to the domestic cleaners registered on their platform at no additional cost to their customers. Domestic cleaners will receive an extra 50% pay for every hour they work for all bookings using the promo code GIVEBACKFRIDAY.
