    Much depends on your market niche. My sales drop on weekends, because I sell mostly to businesses/business needs. Something people buy for fun may perform better on weekends and especially before weekends.

    I work for Saas service provider and our customers have different experience- market rules are key factor- if your customers re b2b you got a peace before a weekend than dead season till Monday morning (excluding Horeca). For those who deal more with B2C it is more active during a Friday evening.

    we sell stickers for decor and canvas prints, both for business or home, but see drops on weekends, but sales does not drop if you have discounts

    Discounts, promotional codes, loyalty programs can compensate orders traffic circulations. Can you check my list and advice if there is something missing on the list of online sales driving features:
    Offer sharing,
    Affiliate program,
    Locality program, discounts and special offers,
    Omnichannel,
    A/B testing,
    e-mail/SMS newsletter,
    Facebook and social media integration,
    Price comparison services,
    Amazon/eBay,
    Recommendation System,
    Multishop,
    Positioning.
    All comments will be appreciated.
