Black Friday takes place on 27 November 2020, which means you have just a little over a month left to prepare. Ideally, you will have already thought about what promotions you’re going to run and how you’re going to promote. But, if you haven’t, the second-best time to start is now.

Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping events of the year — everyone loves a bargain! Your competitors will be doing everything they can to ensure their Black Friday is a success. You should too. You can still attract plenty of customers, though — you just need to make sure your website is ready to handle increased demand and increased traffic.

Now is the time to take a look at your website and ensure it’s going to offer the best possible experience for those who visit on the day. It’s likely a lot of new people will be introduced to your brand, and your website could be put under a lot of strain with a dramatic increase in visitors. You want to give a great first impression and ensure poor performance doesn’t deter purchasing.

Does your website load quickly? How does it look on mobile? Does it have easy-to-use navigation?

And as you’re building more and more Black Friday sales pages are you sure your website won’t go offline because of all the extra demand?

At We Do Code we know there is nothing more frustrating than when you have invested heavily in marketing and advertising to direct additional traffic to your website or application, only for it to buckle under the extra load and go offline.

Our scalable cloud hosting solutions are designed to sustain your current and future growth, by automatically increasing capacity as and when your business needs it to.
