Time to Hire Holiday Help
By Golda Smith
Wow, can you believe that there are less than 60 days until the end of the year? Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away and with that comes one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Black Friday! Are you one of the thousands of shoppers that leave the Thanksgiving dinner table to dash off to get discounted items at midnight?
Businesses have been planning this day for months. How about you…are you ready? There are so many details to hammer out. Here are just a few:
- What will you offer?
- Is your auto responder ready and loaded?
- Have you been mentioning your upcoming sale to your list?
- Have you gone through your shopping cart to make sure it’s a smooth process for your buyer’s?
- Are the links on your site properly working? (I hate missing sales because of broken links!)
- How does your site look on a mobile device? (This is sooooo important)
I almost feel silly mentioning these to you because being the sharp entrepreneurs that you are, I know that you’re already working on them. However, in case you’ve been too busy with other aspects of running your business then I hope this helps.
Some businesses do more business on Black Friday and let’s not forget Cyber Monday than at any other time of the year. Getting your website ready for all that traffic is key to your success. There’s nothing worse than having everything ready only to have your site crash.
If you’ve ever wondered if working with a Social Media Content Manager (SMCM) is for you then this is the perfect time to test the waters. Your SMCM can help you with everything I’ve already mentioned and much more, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.
With regards to the item you are promoting, keep it simple. Offer an audio, transcribe recordings you’ve done or gather your top blog posts into an e-book. All those ideas are simple and doable.
As the clock is counting down to the BIG day, now is the time to make sure that everything is in place and running smoothly. If I can be of assistance then don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m running a Pre Black Friday promotion to assist you in serving your clients. Stop trying to do everything yourself and get the assistance you need. Allow us to walk along side of you and help you stay on task during this busy holiday season.
So tell us, are you ready for Black Friday? If you have questions, stop by Facebook and let me know.
