Top tips to get your online shop ready for Christmas

Tips & Tricks

Gareth Phoenix, owner of new business Gentlemen’s Practice shares his secrets on how to get your website festive ready this Christmas!

  1. Offer free delivery to your customers when approaching this special time of the year. Offering free delivery on your website is a great way of reeling in customers. Make sure you advertise this offer consistently on your website and send emails to any of your subscribers so your customers can take full advantage. With the general expense of Christmas, not having to pay for delivery is an amazing way to get your products noticed!
  2. Make sure you have a delivery policy set up. Confirm when your last delivery date is to ensure your customers know exactly when to order by. You can do this by keeping customers informed by email of the last delivery date or you could even create a Christmas countdown on your website.
  3. Provide tempting seasonal offers on your website to entice Christmas customers. By creating offers for your customers this festive season, you’ll ensure your prices are competitive and your website is an extremely memorable one! Not only does this boost sales, but by running promotions like Buy One Get One Free you have the ability to shift stock that isn’t selling so well. By handing out Christmas promotions, you can attract new customers to your site and massively increase your chances of having more sales from them in the future!
  4. Identify your bestselling products and make sure stock is plentiful. By having your products ready to sell, you ensure your customers have a good online experience and will want to return to your shop again!

Make sure you get on Santa’s good list by getting your online shop ready for the busiest month of the year. If you’re looking for that extra Christmas sparkle, why not try using a domain name relevant to your business like .christmas, .shop, .online and .site?
