Tonight will be our last live show for 2014, and boy do we have some great ideas to discuss. Here's a sneak preview...
What do you get when you take a little bit of this and a little bit of that?
Well, if you're the creative type, you may get something AWESOME. Bethan did, so join us tonight to see what she created with some doilies from Chameleon and bling from Rhinestones Etc.
We will also be talking about post holiday marketing and sales, will customers continue to shop or take it easy? And are we ready? What do we need to get ready to finish 2014 on a high note and be ready to tackle 2015?
The day after Christmas is also know as Boxing Day, and it is THE largest on line sales day of the year...even bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here is some information that Rhonda found...
The following information is from Experian :
For the sixth consecutive year, Boxing Day 2013 was the single biggest online shopping day of the year, with UK Internet users making 129 million visits to retail websites and setting a new daily retail visits record in the process.
With online traffic to retail websites increasing by 15% between 2012 and 2013, we predict that Boxing Day 2014 will continue this trend and will once again set records as the biggest online shopping day of the year.
The chart above is from Digital Strategy Consulting and the whole article is very interesting and worth a read.
I will also be expanding our discussion on the show with step by step posts on how to get your shop ready and totally AMAZING for the post holiday shopping spree. We'll look at our banners and avatars, shop greetings, shop and shipping policies, coupons, categories, and everything else. So be sure to follow this blog either with GFC or Bloglovin. You can find the buttons on the side bar.
If you have a particular question that needs answering, leave it here in the comment and we'll do our best to help you.
And don't forget to catch the live show tonight....
