It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and the perfect time for business to capitalise on a well executed holiday campaign. Historically speaking, the highest sales spikes occur around the Christmas season. In this pandemic era however, a shift in consumer behaviour is evident. A lot of people are turning to online purchases with customers being more comfortable shopping online than at brick n’ mortar stores. This bodes well for small businesses who are working on their digital holiday campaign.
With Christmas just around the corner, every entrepreneur is designing their Christmas campaign to take advantage of the busiest season of the year. It is the perfect chance for businesses to reach out to an audience who are sure to be in a giving mood for the holidays. Exciting times indeed for the small business owner.
However, the task of designing seasonal marketing campaigns can take a toll on entrepreneurs as they juggle work and personal responsibilities compounded by the Christmas rush. How does a small business owner avoid holiday stress in a mad scramble to get everything done in time for holiday festivities? Just like Santa, they get little helpers!
