Looking for some last minute strategies?

Try recycling what worked from last year. You probably already have a good idea of what’s worked for you in the past. Get these promotions started first before you try experimenting with others.

Create an online gallery of gifts on your website. It’ll help direct customers to the hottest holiday shopping items. Try creating a couple of categories (“Gifts for Mom”, “Stocking Stuffers”, etc.) for a quick and easy shopping experience.

Offer a charity donation with purchase. Pick your favorite charity and let customers take part in spreading the holiday cheer.

Don’t forget the gift certificates. It’ll keep people visiting your business into the new year, and hopefully generate some new referrals.

Try a gift package. It’s always better with a bow on top- literally. Try assembling a basket or box of complimentary products. Add some seasonal goodies and don’t forget the trimmings!
