Oh dear, Christmas is near!

September 29, 2017

With the Christmas Holiday fast approaching it's time to start thinking about advertising. There are several ways to get people to shop with you/your shop/your booth. It doesn't have to cost much, in fact it should make you additional profits.

 

 

Decorate - Get people in the mood to shop for the holidays. 

 

  • Storefronts; Decorate elegant or victorian. Use clear holiday lights, greenery, burgundy & cream bows. Also add similar holiday touches throughout the store as well as small holiday items for sale. If you have the space add a decorated tree with wrapped boxes under or a tree made of poinsettias. Holiday scents such as; cinnamon, pumpkin spice, baked cookies, etc. seem to help the holiday shoppers spirit, you can also add cinnamon scented pine cones in baskets throughout the store. 

  • Vendor Booths; Decorate with small holiday items for sale. If you have the space add a few poinsettias & or baskets of cinnamon scented pine cones if the shop owner allows. 

     

  • On your cash register or invoice receipts, be sure to add a line in regards to the holiday. (Example; Cash Register; We wish you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! or Happy Holidays! Invoice; Thank you for your purchase. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas!)

  • Tag an item or items with creative holiday cutout tags. (Scrapbook Paper works great.) 

  • Stage photos with holiday decor when selling/posting pictures online.

 

 

Sales  - People want to save money during the holidays, or at least think they are.  

 

 

 

 

 

  • When making a post try changing your descriptive price wording to Holiday Sale $295 (vs $300). Although it's only $5 you do not post that part so the buyer won't see that! They only see "HOLIDAY SALE $295." Therefore they believe they're getting a good bargain. (You can do this in your shop or booth as well!) 

  • If you have a storefront or booth, offer a % Off. (Create a flyer, glue it to a piece of holiday wrapping paper, then display in a large frame.)

  • If you're having a Sale on select items use creative holiday cutouts (again, scrapbook paper works great) or primitive bows with tags on just those items. 

  • Shop Owners or Booth Vendors; offer you BEST SALE Prices on Small Business Saturday & be sure to PROMOTE your Sale(s).
