Holidays are terrific opportunities to call attention to your business, hold a sale, offer a special, and motivate customers to shop. While many holidays are focused on consumer sales, even companies that sell business-to-business find ways to leverage consumer holidays to increase sales and get customers to buy.
Holidays are more than December 25th — there’s Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and more. These holidays will be here before you know it. Share ideas with us on how to make the holidays a great time for your business. Join us for a one-hour Twitter chat on the subject on Thursday, February 7th at 8 pm Eastern (5 pm Pacific time), presented by FedEx Office.
Tell us what’s on your mind and what you’re planning to to do to promote holiday sales volume — whether it’s running promotions, decorating your storefront, or simply having some fun in your email newsletter in honor of an upcoming holiday.
