It’s no secret that the Black Friday shopping season is a huge event, with shoppers being able to shop online, buy items from brick-and-mortar stores and even get discounted or freebies at participating stores.
Cyber Monday, however, is the biggest shopping day of the year, and advertisers are starting to get serious about marketing to shoppers.
According to data from Kantar Media, Black Friday has become the fastest-growing day of sales ever.
The company says it has seen a 70% increase in online ad spending since Black Friday, with nearly $3 billion being spent in the last 24 hours alone.
The day of Black Friday was created by the government in 1971 as a way to help the economy during the Great Depression, but it has grown to become the largest shopping day in the U.S. every year since.
Black Friday is also the busiest shopping day on the calendar, with millions of people making purchases on the day.
Advertising and marketing firms are working to capitalize on the frenzy, which has made Black Friday a huge selling point for advertisers.
Some of the biggest retailers in the world have started to go on the offensive, including Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target and others.
Target has launched promotions for Black Friday on its website.
The retail giant is also using the Black Thursday shopping holiday to launch a new ad campaign called Black Friday: Countdown.
The ad will debut on Friday, November 17, but will be rolling out throughout the day until Black Friday ends.
Some retailers are even trying to sell Black Friday-themed merchandise, like Black Friday T-shirts.
The retailer Target, for example, is launching a limited-edition version of its Black Friday t-shirts featuring the iconic logo.
The shirts are available for $25, and the shirts feature a message on the front that says “We love you, but you have a problem.”
Target also launched a special sale on Black Friday called “The Black Friday Revolution.”
Target will be selling $20 Black Friday products, including $20 discounted Walmart gift cards, for $5 each.
Amazon is offering a discounted $10 Amazon gift card for Black Thursday.
And Amazon is also running an Amazon Black Friday sale.
The online retailer is offering free shipping on orders of $99 or more.
The Amazon Prime service is offering Black Friday deals on everything from books to electronics, from clothes to furniture.
For the holiday season, Amazon is giving away $10 off all orders with the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY20.
