You could also support 13 charities or worthwhile causes. Send info out to your email list and on social media well ahead of time.

2.) Treasure Hunt

If you have a brick-and-mortar store, or even if you sell only online, hide items (or clues on social media, in social media, on your website, etc.), and set up a way for people to bring those items or to report what they found. They then get a free gift. Put a clue on one social media platform one day and then another on another platform on another day leading up to Friday 13th. Make sure you make it exciting, and that you have clear rules for how the contest operates.

Get your customers excited about Friday the 13th by counting down the days. Put one product on sale each day for 13 days, and then put them all on sale on Friday 13th. This boosts your email marketing and gives you two weeks almost to build anticipation and excitement.

Do something different and anti-superstition by launching a new product on Friday the 13th. There are lots of ways to market this, so let your imagination soar!
