It’s only October, but the holiday season is quickly approaching. And you know what that means – holiday shopping and spending! This usually means good news for small business owners. Read on for details on how to maximize this time for your company.
- Special Promotions
Holiday sales, Christmas specials – getting people in the holiday spirit is a great way to draw people into your business. Many people go shopping for Christmas presents and such, but everyone likes to save money doing it. Offer special deals to captures consumer spending early.
If you own a retail store or restaurant, some Christmas décor is a great idea to spruce up the place. During the holidays, people naturally like to spend more time in stores that are decked out with tinsel and holly.
Selling products in bundles during the holidays gives people the convenience of not having to figure out what to put in that gift basket for Aunt Meredith or Grandpa Sal. If you sell homemade lotions and body care products, for example, you can create Christmas-themed gift baskets with all the items all nicely put together. People will spend more this way, and they’ll also be grateful that you saved them some trouble.
- Gift Cards
If your company doesn’t already offer gift cards, now is the time to start! Many people who don’t want to go through the trouble of selecting a present will buy gift cards.
