As over half of Americans forego sleep in search of a deal on Black Friday, we've prepared an infographic to help small business owners thrive in the upcoming Black Friday holiday shopping weekend.

Black Friday has now expanded to include Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, for an entire weekend dedicated to shoppers ready to check off their holiday gift list. Preparing for and participating in this holiday shopping weekend might even turn negative margins from red, back to black.
