While it is only September, it is time to start thinking about your holiday strategy for your business. Every year, major retailers get further and further ahead. It is important that your business is ready to go for the holiday season. That is why we put together a Digital Holiday Checklist.
Update Holiday Hours on all Business Directories
Update Your Website
Make sure your holiday hours are clearly posted on your website. Highlight major offerings on your homepage. And be sure to update any shipping deadlines (continue reading for more details about that).
Early Shopping Specials
Clear Holiday Shipping Deadlines
Strategize Social Media Content Through the End of the Year
This does not mean you have to plan every post but have a good idea of what products and services you want to offer during the season. What are your biggest sellers? What products/services are easily gifted to others. Make sure you are regularly posting and getting your brand in the holiday mix.
Offer Gift Card Incentives
Bonus cash gift cards are a great option for any business. Consider an extra $5-10 for every $50 spent!
Non-profits: Encourage People to Make Donations as Gifts
Enjoy The Holidays
The holidays are wonderful and they can be a bit stressful too. We hope these tips help you get ready for the Holiday Season online.
