478 – Black Friday Sale Automation: How I generated thousands while on vacation with my family.

Truly Passive Income:
In this week's episode, I share a step by step breakdown of how I set up each part of the automation for my Black Friday through Cyber Monday Sale. After this setup process, my family and I headed out to NYC for Thanksgiving. I was away for five whole days and didn't even take a laptop computer with me. Everything went as scheduled and I returned home, having generated more than six thousand dollars while I was away.

But Isn't Discounting A Bad Idea?
Over the years, I have noticed that not many of my online marketing friends offer Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. In fact, my friend, Derek Halpern from Social Triggers, created the following video three years ago explaining why offing discounts for these sales is a very bad idea.

In the episode, I share my thoughts related to the points that Derek brought up in the video above. I also share why I have continued to offer a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale every year in spite of this advice.
