If you haven’t shopped on Black Friday before, then you really are missing out on some great deals and a truly crazy shopping experience!
I was asked by Collective Bias, an interactive marketing firm that connects brands with shoppers, and Whrrl.com, a location based mobile application that lets users share stories the moment they are happening, to put together a group of 20 savvy shoppers that will document their individual stories of finding the best Black Friday deals and going after the deals on the actual shopping day. They are the epitome of using social media as it is intended.
The 20 savvy shoppers led by the Consumer Queen and the Gift Mommy from Giftfully Simple (Me) will also be competing against each other to be the one that finds the-best-deal out there and the winner wins Google Analytics training or tech/design assistance for his or her blog. Visitors to the website My Black Friday Deals can vote for the best deals on the site now up until all day Friday, November 27, 2009.
Being given the opportunity to be a part of such a fun project has been both rewarding and challenging and I can’t wait to see who finds the best deals!
