Summer is ebbing, and the cool, crisp days of autumn are upon us. Fall temperatures are worth celebrating, but if you’re an online retailer, the season’s virtues aren’t limited to the weather. Fall ushers in the mega-retail holidays that can work wonders for your bottom line.
As we move into the fall season, here are a few ideas for selling more online:
Prepare early. To make the most of the big holidays, including Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and, of course, Christmas, start now. Decide what products you’ll be peddling and what sales you’ll be offering. Draft a marketing plan for getting the word out about your holiday deals.
Tweak your website. You can add elements to your site, such as a countdown to the holidays, that will pique people’s interest and keep them coming back for more holiday deals. You can also add fall-themed backgrounds and a page with fall deals.
Launch an email campaign. Plan to send out emails to your customers letting them know what deals you will be offering for Black Friday and beyond.
Use social media. You can create buzz surrounding your new fall products and holiday deals through ongoing social media engagement. You can even sponsor fall-themed contests and product giveaways.
