Last Minute Online Marketing Tips for the Holidays
Posted on 11/29/2010
It’s time for the final marketing push of the year. The holiday season usually means more consumers online. If you haven’t prepared for the rush, there’s still time. Here are a few last minute tips for online holiday marketing.
Deck out your website.
If you’ve been putting off updates to your website, now is the time to make some changes. There’s a good chance your website will see more traffic in December, so you’ll want your prospects to be impressed. Give the products you’re trying to move the appropriate attention on your home page.
Think about being social.
While you’re making changes to your site, don’t forget to add those social media icons. Now that you’re directing people to your Facebook and Twitter pages you’ll want to get active. Make at least one post a day.
The search begins.
To get those last minute sales, consider spending some of your marketing budget on some search engine advertising. At the very least, take a look at where you rank on the products you’re trying to move before the end of the year.
Check your analytics.
Make sure all your website analytics are working before you get a rush of holiday shoppers. It is important to know whether your marketing efforts have paid off. Having good numbers also gives you a jump start on how to market your business for the coming year.
