✅ Post a Black Friday teaser to your social media platforms
✅ Email your customers to let them know that your Black Friday deals will be announced soon, and to keep checking your website for additional details

Mid-November:

✅ Meet with your staff to ensure that they are aware of the upcoming sale on Grainfather equipment, and can answer questions about the sale
✅ Spread the word by posting a reminder in your local homebrew club(s) Facebook group, and send them an email encouraging the club officers to alert their membership
